Ding, ding, ding we have a winner!!!

I used to pick a winner, so do you wanna know who it is?
Well, Jessica Smith, you will be getting a package soon. Congrats!!!

My friend Natalie shared a tutorial this week for Poppin' Pastels. (Natalie's DH and My Dh have been best buds since second grade. Believe me, that has been a loooooong time. LOL He was also the Bestman in our wedding.) Anyhoo, I had not used this technique for awhile, so I had to break out the chalks and play. LOL (Be sure to check out Natalie's Cards!!)
This is my card, it is a Sympathy card sent to a sweet lady at church that just lost her husband.

Stamp set-Good Timber

Card stock- White 110#, Blue-Greens Mono pack by Bazzill

Ink- Versamark

Misc-Scor-pal, Earth Tones chalk kit, Misc grograin ribbon, Chalk spray

We are re-doing my studio. I am hoping it goes quickly. (Well, you know since we have two helpers- ages 1 & 3. LOL) I am so excited to get it all done! So, my question for you is- What is your favorite organizational tips? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Today's blessing-

**A long weekend**

**"Finding" things that had been forgotten**

**Having a little snuggle on my lap until he/she falls asleep**

Until later~

Hi Lisa, This is a lovely card, great for sympathy!
Well done Jessica!

Organizing my stash is still a work in progress, but a few things that helped was clear acrylic selves for 12x12 (cos I have ALOT)and when I'm working I use old ice cream tubs for what I call "table top bin's!" they're great for those little pieces of cut scraps and tape. Good luck i'm sure it'll be fun!
