Living Up To My Name

Yesterday I went to the scrappy schoolhouse and got creative! Did you know Saturday is World Card Making Day?!

This is a card for my grandparents' 70th anniversary in December. If you look closely you can see the embossing behind the bird...I used a cuttlebug folder.

I used a K&Co. paper pad and its' coordinating embellishments to make this card. The pink and blue rose are pop-dotted to stand out and the dark red flourish above them is a clear overlay.

I love DCWV paper pads, but I am accumulating quite a collection so I got out my Animal Crackers pad to see what I could use. I handcut the tree, monkey, and toucan from a sheet of paper. The toucan is pop-dotted to stand out.

Dr. Hubby's cousin and his wife are expecting a baby boy soon...so I used some more of that DCWV Animal Crackers pad to make them a card. I can't wait to go buy the little boy clothes to go along with it! I handcut the elephant and water droplets and I used Stickles to accent "Little Animal."

Not only am I accumulating paper pads, but my paper flowers are overflowing! I used the DCWV Animal Crackers paper again...this is just one piece of paper...it was already designed in strips...so easy! And on the sentiment I did the one major sin of rubberstamping...I rocked it!...that is what gave me those annoying lines above and below "Thinking of You." argh.
It was fun to create!
What have you accumulated too much of?
How do you plan to use it?

Love them! How nice to get one of these in the mail.
I pick up scraps of fabric when ever I'm at Walmart. I've started making taggie blankets out of them!

Those are fabulous cards! You really did live up to your name yesterday....=) You were just "scrapping" away the day! =D

Let's see, what have I accumulated to much of......I got it; cat hair! It seems to be everywhere I look! Probably because since I have started working again I don't brush the cats like I use to. Wonder if I could knit a sweater...guess it would help if I could knit....he, he.

So cute!

World Card Making Day huh? I'm afraid I won't be participating. But if it was World Cheesecake Making Day, I'd be all over it since I just bought the stuff to make a pumpkin chocolate cheesecake this weekend (yes, I know that's not on my diet).

I admire you card making, crafty girls. I could't find my way around a craft store with a cane AND guide dog.

I have way to many cross-stitch patterns. I used to lie to myself and think that someday I would actually do them. Now I have so many, I have accepted they will never get done. But that doesn't stop me from buying them though, oh well. It could be way worse, have you seen that hoarders show on A&E?
