Spring has sprung

The daffodils & tulips blooming in my garden tell me that spring has sprung but the cold miserable weather is saying otherwise! It is dreary & wet here in my corner of the world. So, perfect weather to try to organize the mountain of paper I have accumulated in my craftroom! Don't tell my Hubby, but even I think I have too much paper! I know, I know, that is against the law to say if you are a scrapper/cardmaker....but I'm getting over run here. How do you organize your color, by maker or what? How do you store your stash?
Getting to my card. Making this made me feel that spring really was in the air. The adorable image is from Anji's Antics & I colored it with my prismacolor pencils. The DP is Quite Contrary by My Mind's Eye, buttons, ribbon & flower are from my STASH (another mountain to conquer!) Hope you like it! I am entering in the following challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee & cards.....recipe
Crafts 4 Eternity.....ribbon
Crafty Catz....April showers bring May flowers
Emergency Crafters....bold & bright
Lily Pad Cards.....Rainy Day
Poodles Parlour.....anything goes
