A Simple Card - Playing With Scraps

My friend Maggie invited me to join her at a crop this week-end ... what a great time I had. Lots of fun conversations ... I met several new friends that enjoy the same passion for scrapping and card crafting that I do, and even met up with old friends that I hadn't seen in a while.  What a great group of ladies they are!

Lots of creativity going on all over the place ... I'll share that I was doing more socializing than crafting ... but that's just how I am! (((wink))) We shared tools and techniques ... I had the chance to try out my new Spellbinders shapeabilities and boarderabilities ... which I totally love ... and they were a great hit by many of the other ladies there.

Towards the later part of the evening, I had started putting my things away knowing that the evening would be ending soon and not wanting to start something new that I wouldn't have time to finish. As I sat there and continuted to chat, I started playing with some of my left over scraps. Mostly with the Core'dinations paper. OMG ... I totally love this paper ... if you haven't tried it yet, all I can say is ... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???? This paper is fabulous!  Ü

Anyway ... here's the card I made from my scraps ... as you can see, there is almost no cuts on it at all ... just a lot of torn paper, some cuttling and a little sanding to bring out the wonderful colors from the core'dinations paper that I cuttled ... a pair of google eyes (which came from one of the ladies there that was kind enough to share from her stash) and a ribbon ... Oh, and I did use my MS branch punch too. That's it ... waaa laaa, a simple little card.

Yes, I know it looks like a child made it ... hey, what can I say, I was having fun playing with scraps! (((big ole grin)))
