Peace and joy...

Hi-dee-ho stampers!

TGIF and can you believe I have the day off?! I plan to spend the entire day crafting and organizing my crafty room. Lisa actually inspired me with a post she did about re-organizing all her 6x6 paper pads by theme rather than company and I want to do the same thing. I've already been working on getting all of my 12x12 Christmas and Halloween papers together which is quite a process but I'm being reacquainted with sheets that I'd forgotten about and all sorts of inspiration has hit me! Now it is time to do the same with the unruly hoard of 6x6 pads that stare at my back while I try to get work done, LOL!

All that paper and my card today only uses the front cover sheet of the Mistletoe Magic collection by My Mind's Eye. I know I've mentioned it before but when I put these collections away I can never bring myself to throw away the cover sheets with all the little prints lined up on them. So even if it isn't cutting into those papers I am glad to get this used up and on a card. In fact, the rows of prints kinda reminded me of a cozy quilt which for some reason had me reaching for my Gorjuss Girl stamps. Winter Wonder hadn't seen ink yet so she was just the girly to pull this card all together. 

Well, I guess I should go tackle that pile of paper pads.

Hi Amy, I love to use the covers from my paper pads. After all that's what made me even look at them in the first place, right? lol... Even when they don't get used I just can't make myself get rid of them. !;0). Anyway, I think this card is adorable and I just love that cover as your paper it is just perfect for this card. Hope you had a great day off and didn't work too hard on your room and pads. I ran into the age old problem when I did mind of finding pads I had forgotten about which led to lots of time spent admiring them all over Hugs Lisa
