Baby Boy

Gorgeous fall morning. Ever since Sunday, I thought I'd lost my card making mojo...just couldn't make anything work. So Monday, I cleaned out my paper scraps, bought two new (rather large) containers at T.J. Maxx, and filled them with all my scraps. Then I vowed to use as many scraps as possible rather than cut new paper. And my mojo came back. It's good to create -- it sends me into my happy dancing mode.

But I have a confession to make.I am a paperaholic. There. I've said it. It is true. I absolutely love paper. I buy it every chance I get, and some paper lines, I hoard. You know exactly what I mean -- saving it for only those very, ultra, special pages or cards. Well, I've decided to let the hoards (plural...) rest until I use up most of the scraps in the boxes. At least that's my plan. We'll see how it goes.

For today, I've decided to enter the following into two challenges, the Freshly Made Sketches #54, and CASology #12.  The cue card at CASology was "shoe". I didn't have a shoe stamp, so I had to come up with something different. Loved the sketch at FMS this week too. Pretty sure it turned out well for both.


Bazzill white cardstock for the card base. All scraps for the rest of the card (yay!!). MAMBI sticker, Stampin' Up ink and sentiment. So easy, and in my world, so cute! Happy Dances everyone.
