Happy Holidays

Last Sunday when i cleaned up some of my papers i came across some scraps of this Serenic Route paper. I had cut it up in some really akward pieces, because i remember i made a long card for a Friday Sketcher challenge last year. Anyhow.. i am really getting frustrated with all my little paper scraps so my goal for next year is to actually USE all the papers and NOT BUY MORE lol.
The colors of the paper are bright and cheery and how cute does it look with this happy Hanglar girl! Unfortunately after lighten up the photos (it is so cloudy here even already at 11.30 am) you can not tell all the light spots i left on her clothes to mimic where the fabric is flowing. Oh well.. Spring is right around the corner, right? hahaha

Alright.. i know my card is a bit late.. cause i was struggling to get my cards all done but this one is for the very lovely and kind Annie Johnson.

I will be back in a few hours to tell you who has won the Motivet blog candy. Thank you for swinging by.

Hi Claudia,
I was out of town and away from a computer for the Holidays, so I am just now getting caught up on my blogs. I would not miss a day of reading yours, even if it is "old news". :) You mentioned your goal to use up your paper scraps. I was wondering if you would kindly share what size a scrap of paper must be in order for you to save it, and also would you please share your method for storing those scraps. I just know it must be something fabulous. Thank you for your time. Best Wishes for your 2010. Linda S. in NE
