Well another work week upon us- ugh! But at least a long weekend is coming up, yipee. I got very little done this weekend in the line of stampin but did manage to get my scraproom cleaned. I decided to organize all my papers, both card stock and patterned. Man, what a chore. Who knew there were so many colors of cardstock, lol. I sorted them all by color to help alleviate hunting & searching. I would love to hear how others organize their rooms. I seem to spend more time looking for thngs then actually working on the project.

I found a system while shopping online yesterday that I think would alleviate alot of headaches! Think I might just have to start saving...I am posting a picture..
Isn't this amazing! Anyone out there own one of these?? I would love to hear how you like it. These armoires are from the original scrapbox if you would like to get a closer look. I would love to be able to hide everything behind doors when I am done...some days you can't walk across my scraproom floor!

Oh well back to cardmaking. Amidst all my cleaning I did manage to complete 1 card. This is from Friday Sketchers- Challenge 34. This was a really fun sketch! I decided to make a valentine card for hubby using this sketch. I was quite pleased with how it was going until Igot to the image. I love this little Sarah Kay stamp entitled First Kiss but I have to find a better grade of card stock. I have noticed lately that when using my copics I get alot of bleeding. Anyone have any advice? Is it the cardstock or the one coloring? I am still very new at using copics so any advice would be much appreciated.



Supplies used- deep red, pink card stock was from an old Club Scrap Kit- this cardstock is from
2004!! See what you find when you organize, LOL. The pink cardstock was covered in stamped postmarks- hence my sentiment sealed with a kiss.
The dp is from My Minds Eye-Quite Smitten, the fluffy, puffy lips and heart are stickers from Sandy Lion, and I used paper covered twist ties for the link. One twist tie says love and the other one says friendship. I used a Martha Stewart scalloped punch.

Oh- and before I forget Bev as some great blog candy to giveaway. Be sure to check her blog- her candy will be up until the 17th and it is some great candy!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
