Warmest Wishes...

Hi there!

Sunday I managed to gather all my Christmas 6x6 and 8x8 paper pads together and I'm embarrassed to admit that there were more than I thought. I do have to give myself a pat on the back because over half of them had been cut into and used but there were still about 20 that hadn't been used yet.  (>-<)  Oy!

So now I'm on a mission to use all 20 of those paper pads at least once before Christmas gets here. First to get checked off that list is this Christmas Wish pad by My Mind's Eye that I'm pretty sure I picked up from a daily deal site last year. That plaid with the cute stitching detail had me thinking boy card. Luckily I also had this sweet Cocoa Cuddles stamp still waiting to get on a card so it was a match made in stamping heaven. I didn't want to over embellish these two little buddies so a single ornament shaped button was all it took to complete this simple card. 

Okey dokey, I'm outta here... take it easy!  :)

Great plaid paper + super cute image! Good luck on your paper use project... I don't know how you manage to have so many unused paper packs. I usually have some lasting designs in a pack that I don't really know how to use, but I don't have a single paper pack that is entirely unused!

Super cute card Amy - you color those RR images up so perfectly. And kudos to you for your organizing mission. One thing I have done with paper pads that has made a difference for me is that when I get new ones they are placed right there on my work table so I can't ignore them. They don't get shelved until I have cut into them at least once! Plus I've slowed down on the purchasing of them which has helped. And, when I put all my Christmas pads together in one place - that was real eye opening!
