The Greeting Farm Hope and Grace To Do List Altered Notebook

Hi Friends!! This is my second post for the day! I really need a "to do list" notebook because lately, I haven't been able to keep track of things. LOL! I decided to alter a notebook that has my monogram on it. I can't wait to use it because I'm getting really confused. I normally can keep track of everything in my head but because I have so many different things going on, it's been difficult to keep track of everything.

Hey. . .yesterday as I was going through all my scrap pile and a bunch of stamps. . .I realized I have too many stuff. Stuff I haven't even used for 2 years. I was shocked to find a bin with SU stamp sets that I bought a year ago and had totally forgotten about. You know, out of sight out of mind kind of thing. I couldn't believe it! Well, I guess I have to use them so I don't feel guilty I bought them.

I really do need to stop buying stuff. Do you have a problem with buying craft stuff with all the intentions of using them but just can't find the time to use them. I've been on a creating frenzy because I really need to use the stuff that I buy.


Well, one thing that I won't stop buying are the Greeting Farm stamp sets! LOL! They are so fun and I love all of them!

Just a bit of info on this altered project. I colored "Hope" from the "Hope & Grace" set with my Copic Markers. That's basically it.

Anyway, this stamp set was released this month so stop by and check out all the cute stamps released this month at the Greeting Farm!!

Hope you are all having a happy day!

Card Details:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Hope & Grace
Paper: SU Real Red, Taken With Teal
Ink: Copic Markers, Sakura gel pen
Accessories: Top Note shape (Craft Robo), organdy ribbon, gingham ribbon, CB embossing folder
