CYS: Leaves!

Hi friends!

Happy Saturday!

It's Operation Christmas Time in our home with putting up the tree,

decor and making it the North Pole!

Eahh year, we have a themed Christmas and this year is 'The North Pole'

and it will (hopefully) look like a whimsical wonderland after it's done :)

I also have gotten a second 'spring cleaning' wind

 and have taken apart our walk in closet.

I thought it would be a few hours ~ yikes!

It's been nearly 2 days!

Sorting, purging, taken to church, more sorting, washing, folding ...

shelves and boxes - oh my!

Anything that 'Oh, I'll fit into this again!"  - gone

"Oh, I remember this from 1999!' - gone

"Oh, maybe my daughter's might like this one day!" (from 1989) - gone!

But - lucky for me - the end is in sight and it's brighter and fresher :)

Onto my card!

The Challenge Your Stash card group on Splitcoaststampers

asks us to look through our STASH (not buy anything new)

and make a card to stretch the use of our supplies.

I've used a unity stamp from one of their past KOTM

and watercolored stamped it.

This card was fun to make - it's always nice to relax and paint!

Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)
