Hi Chickie!

Hello friends! I took some time today to make a few cards. I have been working on reorganizing, cataloging and consolidating my stamp collection. I've taken the plunge to take all of my wood mounted stamps off the wood. It is taking me quite some time but the downsizing & organizing will be good. I am also putting aside stamp sets that I don't think I'll use again for sale later. I really admire those who have clean out each season...I just can't seem to part with so many of my stamps, but the longer this process of downsizing continues the more likely I'll say 'goodbye' to many more sets.  I have a deadline as we are having hardwood floors put in the upstairs rooms including the studio, so that is what has been keeping me away from daily card making and more frequent posting.

This card was a fun one...made in honor of Irene, the Featured Stamper over on Splitcoaststampers. I cased this card of hers. I hope she likes it! I started with a base of white Neenah paper & topped it with three panels of Basic Grey's Offbeat paper mounted on SU! retired YoYo Yellow {I think this is the first time I've used that since it retired!} The bottom nestability is Label 10 in SU! Baja Breeze. The next layer was made using the retired SU Paisley background stamp in YoYo Yellow and then cut with a Scalloped Oval Nestability. The image is one from the Michaels $1 spot. I colored this cute Chickie with SU! markers & sponged the edges with Baja Breeze.

Have a great week,
