A little thank you card

Just a little thank you card to say … well you know… thanks!

I grabbed a piece of Gelli printed book page that had aleady been cut to atc size and so perfect as a card topper on this 4×4 card blank. 

I edged the book print with midnight muse ink and then added little sticker from my embellishment box.  Then some bakers twine and a little bird I had stamped ages ago at a class, coloured it in and then never used. 

Finished with a hand stamped ssentiment and a tiny button.  Cute! 

Happy crafting !

Tidying up the scrap box

I have recently had a bit of a tidy up! Mainly of the scrap box and got rid of things I really would never use by making the pieces big enough into envelopes for the lunch money for the princess! Ingenious use of paper that I otherwise would throw into the recycling! Or at least I think it is!

I have also been making up some quick and simple cards with the bits that were a bit to small to save but too pretty to throw away… Those really small bits and pieces you just can’t quite part with … So here is a selection of the cards I made using such cute bits and pieces!

Watercoloured Simply Sketched flower with my Inktense pencils (lush!) and used some random scraps of paper. Lovely little Itty bitty Banners sentiment too!

The fabulous Henry Says sits happily on the I am Me DSP scraps for this bright celebratory card!

Love how a delve in the scraps box can give me these three very different cards! I did some more but you will have to wait to see them!

Happy crafting!
