Card Organizer

Bring on the Summer, Sunshine, and Blue skies, Verve is asking us to get our Diva ON!!!!
What says summer and sunshine with blue skies more than blue birds, trellises, and wishing wells?

 I have a bit of news at the bottom of this post!!!
One of the team members at Ellephantastic showed us how to make a card organizer. So so simple.
Jill provided instructions and a link to get the calenders for the album. I did my front and back covers more like a book and used chip board. I like the finished look on the inside, too.
Don't you think this Wishing Well is great already colored? AND the great news...it's free in Helen's SHOP.
I used Ellephantastic images that were pre-colored.... the Wishing Well is the first one and there are a few more on some of the months. Will show the inside at the end of the post.
For the colored and uncolored images check out the Ellephantastic Boutique Shop.
I do not own a binder for crafting, but remembered that I had one that is quite old and there were some combs, too! I had never used it. It was a gift for our SIL while he was in college...he made many of his own spiral notebooks for his classes...and it has come to roost in our home. More specifically in my 
craft closet in the hallway. Googled the maker and found instructions for use, cleared the cobwebs and dust.
And here it is!!!
As I look at my notebook/card organizer the more that I like the old fashioned binder comb.
It's not as ribbon friendly as the more modern ones, but it's available and does the trick.
Thanks for coming by!

Here are the rest of the pics...some ppl would love to see the inside.
Have been holding some news and now is the time to let it out.
