Ever So Grateful!

So, today I've gotten the chance to go in my "special" drawer and start to empty it.  Now, I'm sure you're asking yourself, "what's the "special" drawer?  Well, when I get a new image, I stamp it or print it out right away and put it in the drawer.  I hold the images there until such a time that I think it might be perfect for a necessary project.  Otherwise, I forget I have it and it never gets seen!   I can't have that, there should never be wasted images! lol

Some people have to search through their rubber and then their digi stashes every time they make a project and I just go to the drawer.  I find it easier!  Sometimes when I buy new papers (usually single sheets) I go through the drawer and a specific card POPS into the old noggin and I match them up.  I color the image then put it back in the drawer next to the papers I matched it with and use it when the time calls for it.

Today I matched up and colored 6 images and thought to myself,  that this Lily of the Valley flower over the brick wall image is screaming "I'm thinking of You".  What do you think?  I tried the accordion flower under the image and the Satin ribbon with the beautiful button was just like a great big HUG!

  6. What a fab card and such adorable image Tammy; LOVE it!

    I love your special drawer idea; I have a couple of binders with images, but I need to get into the habbit of stamping the new stamps before putting them away..you are right....it is a shame to have forgotten stamps. Lets give them at least a little ink:0)

    Hugs;

  8. Such a sweet card! The image is adorable and I love how the folded DP gives it great dimension and really makes it pop. I am very jealous of your gorgeous bow - it would take me all night to tie one so perfectly! Hugs
