And before you know it, it’s Monday again…and you haven’t shared anything fun on your blog recently because you’re busy digging through boxes and still trying to sort and organize. I have moved across the country before, and I must say that I think I was FAR more efficient then! There’s something about being able to say to yourself “Do I want to pay $xxx to move this across Canada?” and being able to say “NO!!” that helps to lighten the load. Moving up the street, well that’s another story entirely. I have boxes of “stuff” that I wasn’t sure what to do with before…and they have migrated with me. The smart thing to do, I think, would be to just keep the boxes sealed, close my eyes and send them to the curb…but that hasn’t happened so far. In the meantime, the odyssey continues.
Also in the meantime, here’s another card to share with you! One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! products is the coordination. As you may be able to tell by my little story above, I don’t like to think too hard or for too long LOL – so when you have things that naturally go together, it’s my kind of crafting project. In this case, the stamps and framelits go together…and then I realized that there were numbers all over this particular sheet of Designer Series Paper, et voila! A card is born. If you’re like some people I know…you may wish to skip the distressing and tearing, and have a neater/cleaner card. Personally I think the crumpled look is perfect for the sentiment on this birthday card!!
So off I go now, to dig into more boxes and pull out some holiday items to prep for my upcoming classes and the Christmas Stamp a Stack. Hope that I get to see you soon! If you’re coming to the Stamp a Stack, my goal is to have the downstairs area (well at least where the class is being held) as a box-free zone. Wish me luck!!
