Inspired by Jennifer D.

For some reason, organizing my craft room always fires up my creative mojo (and all too often, my inner Mojo Jojo, but that's a different story for another day...). While organizing and de-acquisitioning my paper stash, I rediscovered a large sun I had painstakingly cut out of a piece of cardstock and saved for some unknown future purpose, and these wavy border strips that I bought back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. I didn't think much about them, except that perhaps if they did not get used up beforehand, they might bite the dust in the already much anticipated New Year's Eve Paper Purge Party.

When I took another look at the most recent featured cardmaker post on Stars and Stamps (the Operation Write Home blog), I was inspired by one of the cards made by Jennifer D. The above photo shows my riff on her fabulous card.  I believe the stamp is by Printworks. These cards are already tucked (version 2.0) and ready to send to OWH, but I think I will hold off a bit because they seem more summery than springy to me, and right now I am trying to focus on cards with a more vernal ambiance (ooooh, fancy!).

I also, believe it or not, made two Chanukah cards yesterday! Those used some stickers that have been marinating in the stash lo these many moons.

Gotta love stash busting!

Organizing can do that, inspire you and also for me, make me reminisce. You go, Amy!
