Happy Anniversary to Speedy the Cats Friends Challenges

They are celebrating their first year Anniversary of the Speedy the Cats Friends challenges. So that is our challenge this week. My card is made with 2 stamps from the set Happy Pansies. I colored it with Copics.



I had saved some of the cool negatives from the fancier Nesties. It made a great frame for my pansy. Then I layered it on top of a Fleur di Lis Square and a piece of one of my backgrounds.  I have a tip for you today. I was reading on another blog and saw that this lady organized her scraps. I thought that's exactly what I need to do. I'm always looking for a color of a scrap and end up giving up and getting a whole piece of card stock. So I sat down on the floor, dumped out my scrap basket and started to sort by color families. Put each pile into a baggie and then back into my basket. So neat now and I can find the color I need. I also did it with my backgrounds last night. Sorted by technique and glossy and non glossy. So much easier to deal with now.
