Latest sketch from 2 sketches 4 you

My mojo is back baby! Woo Hoo. It's horrid when you want to sit down and create something and all you get is... nothing. However, today I have been happy with each and every card I have made. This card is based on Kazan's sketch #4 over at 2 sketches 4 you blog. The adorable chipboard lasercut is from Remember When Paper Company. It has such gorgeous detail with some etching as well. Paper is Sass Lass, and the stamp is Melissa Frances.


Can I share something with you? Something completely and totally anal, which is SOOOOOO not me? It took me almost a day, but I have arranged all my Bazzil into the correct order (colour groups etc, as per the Bazzil swatch book that is like a bible). Now when I want to match cardstock to patterned paper, I pull out my swatch book, find the right shade of Bazzill, and then I know exactly where to find it. I then jot down the name of the cardstock I've used, so that next time I place an order I can replace it. I am normally the queen of random chaos, but as I get older, I am becoming more organised and ordered. Perhaps by the time I'm 70 I will no longer procrastinate over everything, and my life will run like clock work!?
