Just Because Card & Blog Candy

I'm still playing with my February kit from Studio Calico. I know the March kit is about to ship, so I feel compelled to whip something up before I bury it in my files. I keep my kits in 12x12 hanging files in a filer in my Arts & Craps Room. I only do this with SC Kits for some reason. Everything else I buy gets sorted by color in the same drawer. All of my embellishments get sorted by color too. The new stuff stays in a special basket at my desk though. I want to keep that stuff close by. Whenever it's time to purge (often) I just go through and move the "keepers" into the color bins, and the items I don't plan on using go into my donate/sell/blog candy bin.  It's getting pretty full too, so it might be time for something to share soon... :-) If any of you have pictures of your organization I would love to see pictures of it. Maybe even post them here on my blog to share too. I'll take some pictures of my room this weekend for you all.

This weekend I'll also be posting up all the cards that readers have scraplifted too. It's a monthly occurrence, so don't worry if you're not ready this month. I'll do this the first weekend of every month. If you've scraplifted one of my cards just send me a link asap, because I'll be sharing them right here with everyone! You may even get some BLOG CANDY! :-) Yummmmmy!

Anyway, on to the card...


Sorry, the picture isn't too great. I normally take my pictures upstairs by the big window next to my computer desk, but this one was taken downstairs at the back of the house on a bed in Ethan's room. The sun sets back there, so it was the best I could do. I suppose I could have waited until another day, but I come and go in the dark it seems being in the military and all. It would have been next weekend by the time I was actually home to photograph in some decent light.

Very nice card! And I don't see a problem with the lighting. Looks fine to me.

So lovely!!! The colors are so soft yet saturated. You make the most beautiful ribbon bows!!
I do that with my SC kits too- it's the whole "exclusive" thing- it makes you think their stuff is extra special and it is. :)
Right now I have things organized by color. I have 1 box for Sc kit items (separated by kit name!) and I box for "favorites": woodgrain, floral, transparencies, grid patterns and polka dots.

Can't talk organization right now; my studio is in total chaos! It's in need of some new artwork and cleanup for sure.

Love that particular shade of subdued cardstock and the ribbon in this one-very nice!

Lovely colors!! The picture looks good to me (mine are pathetic always!!). Scraplifting one of your cards seems to be a tempting option. I will try with whatever limited supplies I have ;-) Love your work!!

Hugs,

I think the picture looks fine! :) It's a bit tricky, but you can improve your lighting with a white sheet of something (cardstock?) or metal foil, that way light will be reflected :)

and your card is so pretty, love the colors.I have to get to my stamping supplies out more often, lol :)
