Grateful Bella Challenge

This last Friday the challenge on the Bellariffic Blog was to use a Grateful theme. I really wanted to use my last chefabella card, but that would be cheating a little as I made it prior to the challenge, so I created another chefabella card ^_~.


Supplies: Paper by My Minds Eye; CS, Brads, Markers, ink, and Say it in Style Stamp set by CTMH; Chefabella stamp by Stampingbella

Just a quickie card using some scraps I had. I recently reorganized all my paper which wasn't too difficult a task since I try to keep my stash pretty reasonable. Right now all my paper and cardstock only fill my XXL Crop 'n Style 2/3 of the way so it really wasn't too big of a task. I used to have all my scraps in with my whole papers that matched it but found that that method just wasn't working out very well for me so I separated all my pattern scraps into one baggie so I can see them all. This also helps me use up scraps first when it comes to making cards ^_~ I used to do the same thing with my cardstock too but have separated them as well and boy is my paper ever so much easier to go through now! I just reach for the scrap baggies first and only if I don't have it there do I reach for a whole sheet to cut up. Anyway, that was my own little happy moment there, lol. I love getting stuff organized and am constantly reorganizing. I get just as much satisfaction from that as I do creating stuff, lol!


And just a fun pic of the girls being silly :D They said the cards were saying cheese when I was taking my pics of them and that they wanted to say cheese as well, lol. I know I'm biased, but I think they are way cuter than my cards!! Anyway, for an update real quick on the blog candy entries here are the links to the cards by player :

Be sure to check out their wonderful winter cards! Sparkle also created a darling card using this sketch but with a summer/fall theme which didn't count for the blog candy challenge but is darling none the less! Oh and Emilee, your post was the only one I couldn't leave a comment on, so just to let you know your card is adorable! I loved the sanded embossed background and how you made the image spot fit your snowmen, sentiment and those cute buttons! The blog candy winner will be posted later this afternoon! Thanks for playing ladies!

What a fun card. I love all the fun paper you always use. And it sounds like you have a manageable system on how to use your scraps. I'm not good about that at all.

I also love the picture of your girls. They are very cute.
