A Snippet Card at long last

Since my fall I have been unable to get around so decided to dedicate some time to sorting my mountain of paper snippets into a workable order. I bought clear pockets with a foldover flap and sorted my cardstock snippets into colour groups, red, yellow & orange, pink, green, blue, purple, white, black, brown and metallic. Then placed file hangers in the draw and put one folder per hanger. I then sorted all the printed paper into, men/boys, girls/ladies, christmas and neutral (gingham etc) and placed these in the hangers after the cardstock. Well so far this system is really working, I have made three cards all from the snippets draw and it was so easy to find the bits I wanted.

Onto the card, I have used a new image from Di's Digi Downloads, I bought this one and the girl version so expect to see this one soon. Coloured with my trusty copics and no glossy accents in sight lol.

Wow Amanda! How organised are you? Wanna come and sort mine?!!! You will be here a while so I will make you a cake!
Gorgeous card there. Could have done with some of these at the office as we have had a bit of a baby boom over the last year or so. Not me, I just got chickens and a mad dog!

This is just to cute Amanda! Love the papers and color combo not to metion that adorable image. I use the same system to store my scraps, problem is the huge pile needing to be put into the files.
