two from one....

Now I suspect we are all the same in as much as 'bits 'n' bobs'. I have two boxes filled with scraps of papers and card etc which are leftovers from all the cards I've made. I always say to myself, I'll keep that it could come in handy, but never use it. So I have set myself a little challenge to start using up my scraps.

The wallet card below I have sent to a certain person, not sure if she's received it yet so I'd better not say who. The papers are from the Basic Grey 'sugared' pad which have been torn and inked with Tim Holtz distress inks which I really love using as you can watercolour your images too. Sentiment stamp is again by Autumn Leaves 'ticketed', flora doodle flower, string from my kitchen drawer, again inked with distress inks, 'scrabble' effect alphabet tiles from papermaniaSo with the leftovers from the above card, I made this card.....sentiment stamp and image from Sugar Nellie, buttons are Woodware, Autumn Leaves scroll stamps added to the plain backing paper. Image has been coloured with Tim Holtz distress inkpads 'brushed corduroy', 'fired brick' and 'pine needles'. Some glamour dust added for a touch of sparkle.
Think I have started something now, as my craft room has bits of papers everywhere which I am determined to use up as they are too nice to discard. I wonder if anyone else would be interested in doing the same. Would be great to see what you come up with.

Well I think that's it from me for one day. I hope everyone is happy, well and looking forward to the weekend. Whatever your up to, I hope it's a good one, full of fun and laughter. Take care, love & best wishes to you all
