Now that I have my Papertrey Ink stamps sorted, it's on to the notebook (because it's easier to see the images all stamped, then pulling the set out of the basket and squinting at them lol). Most of the stamp sets have handy dandy tips, so I write those on the back (again because it's easier). And it does wonders for my mojo and usually I have to stop and make something.

The teapot is still naked. It's on my desk because it belongs to my friend who wanted a tea cozy for Christmas (in 2015 mind you). And I said I've been studying tea cozies, I've got this in the bag. . . . So basically it's a big old lesson in humility lol. But I've moved on to a new idea for a pattern, well two thanks to Julia and LLJ : D. My friend has a great sense of humor so I think she'll appreciate the latter especially.

I nearly forgot, the day after I was thinking the grass really needed mowing, and I saw birds busy putting on shows and the frogs were singing in the nearby creek, I woke up to snow.

Which inspired me to make this card.

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground to have a gander at more crafty spaces.

Anything showing a file or ring binder grabs my attention straight away and you've set my mind into making a file of stamp images.
Drat that means I'll start faffing about on that now. I better get started as it will be like an ear worm now wriggling around in my head until I do it

Julia Dunnit said...

I love the card, Spring is a funny creature for sure...that's not what we call a smattering of snow either, brrr! Glad you're inspired by me and Jan - probably her mostly. Me, I just love the fact that the teapot is still naked....makes me laugh in empathy!

Vicky Fisher said...

I had the same when sorting my stamps, all the ideas, should have taken the time to do something with them or at least wrote them down.
Wow, snow, we had a summerweekend, we spent it on the beach. Happy WOYWW Vicky #12

Ha, love that 'Sort Of' bit of the sentiment on the card, especially after what happened outside! We can get snow in May here too, so the old saying of 'Ne'er cast a clout til May be out' is quite true!
And I had a mental image of what you're going to do with the tea cosy...does it involve a lot of pink?!?
Hugs, LLJ 16 xxx

Ohhh don't envy you the snow. I am liking the spring too much now to go back to winter. Love your stamp storage, they are so much easier to find like that aren't they?

Lol, love your card. That seems to have been happening all over- we've had snow flurries around here too. Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #9 xx

I love the card. The sort of part is the best. That's a lot of snow. At least you don't have to that is!
Have a great day.

Lovely card and so true for me too it's snowing here big white fluffy stuff and it's so pretty to look at but I'm hoping for spring too. We put away all the shovels too hugs Nikki 2

Stamp examples in a ring binder? Such a good idea! In my spring clean/organize/dump the trash mode, I might have to find a little time for something similar. Thank you for the idea! Love that snow

I love the idea of having a notebook full of stamped images and sentiments. It must be fantastic for shopping trips too - no double-ups!

Kim Collister said...

The note book for your stamp organizing is such a great idea. I dread the thought of getting all my stamps organized, it would make life so much easier!
Snow? Spring is such a tease!
Happy Creating to you!
