Pile it On
This is my Pile It On card for this week. It works for:
Pile It On - water colors
Our Creative Corner - sketch
Cup Cake Craft - colors pink, green, brown animals & flowers.
Saturday I went to Archiver's and found the cutest Penny Black stamp set called Critter Party. I was so happy when I saw it I almost did the happy dance right there in the store. I have been looking for a Penny Black stamp with a hedge hog for a long time. I love her little critters. I stamped him with SU chocolate brown. Then colored with SU water color pencils and used a Tombow blending pen. The pink, green and brown paper was in my scrap box so I don’t know what it is. The pink ribbon is from SU. I did a lot of jobs today. I took two carpets to get bound, cleaned the garage, pulled weeds, vacuumed the car and truck. Last I cleaned my scrap box and made this card. I have a hard time throwing away scraps of card stock and designer paper. I do use my scraps but they get to be a big mess. My new way to keep them organized is to have folders standing up in a small plastic shoe box. The first folder has white and beige colors, next orange and yellow, then pink and red, next black and brown, then purple, next blue, then green. The solid colors are in the front and the prints are in the back. This is just for the small scrap. I have another crate for larger pieces. I need to go through that crate tomorrow. Now I have something fun to do. I won another stamp at Stamp TV. I did do a happy dance when I found that out. I am going over to Stamp TV now and pick out my new stamp.
Thanks for stopping. Let me know what you think or how you are doing. I love to read your comments. Maybe you have a suggestion for organizing paper. I would love to learn a better way.
