Good Monday Morning – the start of another work week – yikes – do you know how close Christmas is – I am trying to get my Christmas cards in order. I have been making them – some I make specifically for people – others – I make cards and then decide who gets them. I do need to put the insides in a few of them yet. I really must continue to do that when I make cards – finish the inside – so then you don’t have to worry about finding that paper again.
Sunday I broke out my new table – it is a table that adjusts to counter height – I am a stand up card maker so my back starts bothering me. After just an afternoon of use – I think I really like it. I have my cutter on it and I work there. It is not real wide so you can’t put lots on it but everything can be close at hand. I also sorted my spellbinders – I got out some sandwich bags and sorted each group together. It seems I spent more time digging through the container finding the right one – now at least all my circles are together, etc.
Today is Monday – so it means it is Oldie Moldie Monday – dig out some of that once loved paper and make a beautiful card. The paper today is from a Basic Grey pad I bought at Michael’s – I have never seen the collection in the stores. I also dug out some embossing powder I had never used – but had to have. Zing in a dark brown by American Crafts. I think I like it. The design of the card is based on the sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping.
Oh who – oh who shall get this card.
Everyone have a good Monday. Hope you find sometime to be creative.
