Oops, Blog Candy catch up!

I don't have a clue what happened to me last night, usually I clean up after dinner then settle down with the laptop and post on my blog for the night.  Well I didn't do it and didn't even think about it until I was in my Studio today working on a few cards.   I've had several girls ask me how I make so many cards so I thought I would let you in on some of my tips.
1st - I cut cardstock for A2 cards and score them ahead of time.  I usually keep about 20 cut of all my favorite colors.
2nd - I have a container full of salutations in white with different colored inks.  I keep them in mini plastic bags.
3rd - I have a large bag full of colored images I mark the Copic colors I use on the back of the images.
4th - I have my DSP filed by color so I can go directly to it.
5th - Within arms reach I have my embellishment in a tool shop plastic container with 25 drawers all labeled.
I always forget or don't want to bother with ribbons although I love it and have way to much so today I spent 2 hours making bows and putting them in one of the large containers in my embellishment box.  Now they will sit looking at me and I'll not have a reason not to put them on along with all the flowers I have but forget to add.
