Birthday Thank You's

My son's birthday was July 16 and I was in need of some Thank You cards. This is the first card I have made in a while - at least 3 months. The sketch is from Splitcoast Stampers SC39. I thought the layout was simple enough since the card is really from a child and that I like Clean and Simple cards.

I dug into my stash of retired stamp sets and found this one - Wild About You - which happens to be a set my son liked to use a lot. He doesn't stamp much anymore; he'd rather play with his Gameboy or surf the Internet.

The grid card stock is from amuse studio and the rest is all by Stampin Up. The sentiment is Studio G and the Tag Die is from Papertrey Ink. Twine came from my stash.

We have been watching Master Chef every week and are getting into it a lot. Many times we see something being prepared and say "I want that now". This week, Josh came back for a second chance in the competition and earned a spot. He made the most stunning Fruit Tart. Yep, we all wanted a fruit tart so I made one yesterday. It came out perfect!

Paper Organizing

I've got two file crates with card stock arranged by color families from 2 different stamp companies. So, I've decided some purging and re-organizing is needed. If I can actually see the card stock then I may be able to choose the colors I want to use. Much better idea for my creative mojo.
