Fall is definitely in the air here, so excited! I've got an order to make some fall cards for a friend, so I really should get cracking on some of those. Hero Arts is celebrating fall this month and this card uses the Designer Friend leaf stamp. I've also used a loose take on this week's Card Patterns sketch, I tried and tried to incorporate the two little tabs and it didn't work, so I'm going with the CAS style. It's hard to see in this photo but I used the eyelet punch to create mini holes in the two corners, I swore off using the actual mini eyelets after one too many frustrating attempts months ago, so I've just got holes.
And since the current Flashback Friday is to repost your first fall card I pulled out this one (using the same stamp!). I made this card in May 2010 for one of the Play Date Cafe color challenges.
And least but not last... I wanted to share some storage ideas... I posted a photo of my very messy desk last week and somehow inspired Amy to do a bit of a clean up... thanks Amy for the added motivation, because a clean up was indeed in order over here. I recruited a little helper, because he's actually quite good at cleaning up if he's motivated. He came in, took charge and somehow I managed to find the floor, desk and make some order in the drawers. Here are Ben's top craft room organization tips: 1) turn off the computer, 2) don't get sucked into to making cards and 3) just put it away. Here are some photos...
