Thrifty Thursday ~ Congrats Card and more!

 
Hello paper peeps and happy Thursday!  I'm very excited to share with you a new segment for My Creative Time...Thrifty Thursday!  On the days that's not a Designer Challenge, Emma will be rotating different themes for the off Thursday's.  So what does Thrifty Thursday mean?  Glad you asked!  We have to make a card or a layout using only scraps.  Of course the base for either doesn't have to be.

 
This is what I started with.  When ever I cut something and the paper isn't quite right for the project I'm working on, I never throw them away.  So you can see the heart is already cut from another project.
 
 
And here is the finished card...I don't think it looks like a card of scraps!  Do you?



 
Look how much I have left over still!  I think I feel another card coming on!  lol!

I have recently cut back on the amount of Design Teams I'm on.  I have really enjoyed being on all the different teams and getting to know really great people!  However I'm super excited to be able to devote myself to My Creative Time and my own Boutique!  And with my new found freedom, I plan on playing in different challenges and doing some redecorating at home!  Yes, I will be sharing these projects with you too.  So if you have just recently became a follower, I hope you aren't disappointed that I won't only have paper projects. 
 
Enjoy!
