Happy WOYWW. Today I have a card in progress (for the Simon Says Paint challenge),I used distress paint on a fun foam stamp I cut with the Friendship Jar from Papertrey Ink (it's the orange shape on the left) which I glued to a piece of plastic clam shell. The re-inkers are for the Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink, which is making an inkpad out of a babywipe and re-inkers. The challenge for me is that I only have black and various tones of brown re-inkers, so it's time to make a thinking cap lol.

On the organizational front, I love Papertrey Ink, but sometimes it's difficult for me to see the images, so I took an 8.5" x 11" paper, scored it at 5.25", folded it and then punched holes. The stamped images of the set on the front, tip sheet info is written on the back and in the fold out part is where I glue cuts from the dies, and notes about the set I have rattling around in my head. The stamp set here is All Booked Up.

UPDATE: Ordinarily this is where I'd be directing you to our chief desker's blog, however she is in the hospital so there won't be a central hopping location this week and possibly next. Hoping she is up and about soon.

I wish we lived closer. I have very limited numbers of ink pads. In fact, you can count them all on one hand. BUT, I have scores and scores of reinkers, because I love to make my own backgrounds and different techniques. I separate them by dye, pigment, distress, and solvent reinkers. So, I feel for you and really wish I could help with the project.

Did I read correctly that you made the stamp for the jar? Good job!!

Thanks for visiting me earlier. I agree that hoarding is one of the worst disorders and I'm so glad my friend is finally letting go of a FEW things. Not many, but anything at this point is a blessing.
