A Card to Myself


When I was wandering through blogs today I stopped off at Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink Blog. They are having a blog hop tonight with a challenge included. You can check it out here.
The challenge is to make a card using office supplies you have in your desk. Well I was really stumped on this one, yes as everyone does I have all those bits and pieces but I sure wasn't seeing a card out of it. Then it hit me, I'd been making cards for the last few days and I could use some organization and reminders. So I decided to make a card to myself, with ideas and reminders. While making cards today I had made several sets of tea pots and cups from the Tea for Two and Tea for Two Additions (love these sets) for use on cards so that was my start. First I took a sheet of my yellow legal pad and cut it down for my main DP, then I took an orange Post-It note and cut it down with a note of items to use. I attached my tea pot and cups to a scrap of orange card stock and used a cute paper clip to hold it on. Then I took a flower with a rhinestone and ribbon a layered that over another paper scrap. Finally I listed some Copics to use an attached it with another paper clip. The best thing about this card is I can hand it to myself and save a stamp (I can even save the envelope too, lol). Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

How clever you are to use all those office things. I think we should all make ourselves a card once in a while. Great idea.
