The clean up continues

The major clear up operation in my craft room continues, although it still looks like a bomb's hit it!  How can that be when all these boxes contain craft stuff that's on it's way to new homes?!!

Well there's only so much tidying I can take before get itchy fingers to get a little inky.  So late tonight I made this bookmark card, so it's a little gift as well as a card.  I'm loving All Booked Up stamp set from Papertrey Ink and to make it even better, I have the matching dies too.  It was one of those cards that took a while to get there, it changed a little bit on it's creative journey.  It was inspired by challenges at:
Papertake Weekly - something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue - well this card covers the new with my new PTI stamps and dies and the blue - well does aqua count!
Get Sketchy - sketch #50 - I turned this one 18 degrees and made the little panel into a pocket for my bookmark.
Stampin' for the weekend - Back to school - I thought it would be nice to make a card for an older child going back to school, to encourage them to read.

I'm hoping I'll be back to some more crafting and less tidying soon but I know it'll be worth it in the long run.  It will, won't it?
