Using Up Scraps

I think I have enough scraps to last me at least 10 years and that's making a card every day! Don't laugh, I'm serious!
Photobucket

So I made another two cards tonight using scraps.

The first is for CPS following sketch 107.


I like this card's country feel.

The second is for a new challenge blog, Use It started up by Rae Barthel. Use It challenges you to 'dehoard'! I think it will take me 10 years to 'dehoard' but I'm willing to try!

This blog is on its second challenge, issued by Danni and I'm a fan of Danni's cards. They are so clean, crisp and fresh. She also uses border punches and embossing folders a lot, you've gotta love that! Danni's challenge at Use It is to create a card in spring colours, using at least 4 flowers and a tag.



I tried to emulate Danni's style in the creation of this card, love the freshness of the light blue, white and brown. I think its kind of springy!

Great cards! Love the cps card, the patterns, and how it looks like the whole thing is tied up in a bow...like a country kitchen offering from someone stopping by to say 'hello'! :>

Awesome cards! I especially like the "country charm" of the first one, too. Thanks for sharing!

Oh Rosanne these are so incredible! I love your use of the tag on the first card and I have a very large soft spot for country-palettes & your second card reminds me of a boutique with the canopy & spring window advertising/decor, absolutely loooove it! ♥

hugs & so much love!
