This week Chrissie and Mandi at Simply Less Is More challenged us to use our scraps to make a card. Honestly, I couldn't quite decide how I wanted to play with this. I do save my scraps and, um, yes, I don't use them as often as I should, but when I do use them, they don't look like they are scraps. You know what I mean? I don't think you can tell whether I cut them from a bigger piece of paper, or used a scrap from something else. Soooo, because I couldn't think of how to do this, just for fun, I reached in my waste paper basket and made a card out of an otherwise not-useable scrap.
It's silly, I know, but I got a kick out of it. I do thank Chrissie and Mandi for the challenge as it does remind me to be more environmentally aware and use my bits and pieces more often.
Please welcome my new follower, Jean Berling! Have a great Sunday everyone! I can't wait to see what you all put together for this challenge!
Paper: SU Whisper White, Old Olive, and DSP
Stamp: Hero Arts E2094
Ink: Papertrey Ink, and Marvy Markers
It looks like you had your tongue well and truly in your cheek with this one Darnell... WE always know when we've used scraps, even if others couldn't tell, we just wanted to encourage the use of all those saved treasures!
You obviously had fun!
Thanks so much

You are brave! Couldn't imagine reaching into the waste paper bin. Bet you had fun with this one.
Looks like you've had fun with this challenge! I have so many scraps, I couldn't decide WHERE to start!! Very "creative" card you have here!
A fun card! I bet you'll be looking at everything twice before throwing it away now!
You got me! But I was sincere about appreciating the encouragement because I do get lazy about looking through my scraps and using them like I should. (I'm hoping to do a "proper" scrapper card to add before the week is up.)
Well done on truly using your scraps Darnell! love the bunch of flowers :) Sarah x
