Oldie Moldie Monday May 24, 2010


Good Monday morning – up early – need to get to work and work flat out for the next 6 weeks. Hopefully there will still be time for some paper therapy in my evening and week ends. Summer always brings its challenges because you must also do all the things outside. I enjoy both – I have always enjoyed good ole dirt therapy.

Today is Monday – Oldie Moldie Monday – the day to dig into your supplies and find that paper that you bought awhile ago – that somehow got buried and never used. Dig it out and make something wonderful. My friend Ivanka and I try to do this to use up some of jour increasing piles of supplies. We even have a Flicker gallery where you can post your creations.

I have started making cards for Operation Write Home and on Monday I always try to make my cards from their Sunday sketch on their card site. I always try to make a couple – if only I had the time yesterday – I could have just kept going. This Basic Grey grouping – a 6 x 6 pad – has so much fun paper in it and wonderful colors. I have a feeling you will be seeing more of it this week.

Everyone have a wonderful Monday – Dancing With the Stars is on tonight – yeah – the finale – I usually hide out in my work area and create some cards.

Love your cards Barb! Just perfect with the stamps you used! I didn't get my OMM card done today, the weather was just too beautiful.
