Back to notes...but with paperclips

Hello Everyone,

If you remember, I was always loosing my notes for challenges, getting things mixed up, and decided to make a challenge board....well I never showed it, as it was a total disorganised and complexed disaster...lol..so I started a notebook and that didn't help either as I forgot to turn the pages or there was so much glue on my fingers the pages stuck together....sooooo....I went back to notes...BUT..this time when there is a challenge I want to play in, I simply write the deets down and stick a paper clip on the top, then print or stamp my image and slide that under the clip...colour, cut, matt, and decorate, post, then the clip comes off as project complete...DONE.

So far this works well..if it has a clip, I need it, if it dosen't, then I dont...[or maybe I forgot the clip..lol..]

Made a card the other night to share today.....for a challenge at By the cute and girly  [anything goes]




Very cute little kittens ....



Close up of image, from 'raising our kids'...coloured with pencils...love how the pink/ginger kitten came out, usually I end up with orange colour cats...



Papers were a freebie download, and sucked up all my ink out of the printer...so guess I wont be doin that in a hurry again....the spider web paper was gift wrapping paper..added a purple ribbon and some blings..

So thats me this dull, chilly, Wednesday morning...time for work..but a short day, no washing..yay..
and although it sounds awful ... no kids today either...bigger yay!!...

I need some me time this afternoon, and so far, I'm getting it....have a great day/evening, will see you tomorrow...and thankyou so much for all your lovely comments...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Dora said...

What a fun card, that image is so cute Chrissy and love the background paper you used. Your idea for the challenges seems a good one. I had made a word table on my computer with the challenges that I like most for each day, and space where to write the themes. I print this out and then on each day I take note of the theme. So far its working for me he he :)

Cute! You colored the image beautifully!

Lisa M said...

Well, I like it a lot. Very creative. The card and the organizational idea. If it really works out good for you, I might adopt the idea.
Do you mix the DT challenges with up coming challenges at the same time? There has got to be a way to to do more in less time. I'll take any advice.

Linda said...

AWW! Chrissy, your card is so adorable!! :) Love your Halloween colors and layout hun!!

Great idea with the clips and notes!! I used a "loose leaf" paper method..was thinking about a notebook, but I don't know...

Anniebee said...

Hiya, Chrissy! Another adorable card today! I am lovin' all these cute vintage style images you have been using lately. They are really cute! It seems we travel in the same circles as I see comments from you on most of the blogs I visit regularly! I suppose that means that we have similar tastes in crafting styles too.

Hugs, Anniebee
