Get Well Wishes

Hello!  Today's card is for the CAS76 challenge on SCS.  It is a sketch challenge this week, so go check it out!  Yesterday  I went to Archiver's with some friends, and bought some more of this lovely October Afternoon paper from Report Card collection.  I love this flower print with the blue, orange and yellow! LOVE it!  I made a rolled flower from some orange felt and added a vintage button to the center.

I am really proud of myself as I have been getting rid of TONS of old paper and stamp supplies.  I have sold several of my old stamp sets, and donated paper to various little girls in the neighborhood and threw out the rest.  I know...I actually threw away paper!  It was very dated and hadn't been used in many years.  I have definitely become better at buying my paper craft supplies!  Instead of just buying stuff because it is on sale or I think I need it, I only purchase those things that I absolutely LOVE!

I also use what I love.  I used to hoard my favorite papers away thinking I would save them for something really special, and that is just silly!  A lot of the papers I saved for just that reason I ended up throwing away because they seemed out of style or faded looking.

I only spent $28.00 at Archiver's yesterday!!!!  GASP!  I had so much fun going to lunch and shopping with my girlfriends and then coming back to my house to makes some cards!  FUN, FUN, FUN!

Hope you have a MARVELOUS Monday!

Marvelous card, Emily! I just love that sweet orange felt flower you made. You've got me thinking about my paper purchases and use, too. You are so right about it being better not to hoard!! I'm getting better about not hoarding my embellishments. Paper is next on the list :)

Glad you had fun! I am also trying to get better at using what I hoard. If I love it so much, I should use it!!
