MCT Thrifty Thursday ~ My Hero!




Hey crafty friends, it's Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time!  I really love this feature!  It gets me to use previously cut dies for other projects that for some reason didn't work with the original plan.  

I've shown you before how I keep my extra cuts.


At the end of March my husband retired after over 31 years in law enforcement.  I thought it would be fun to make a "banner" with pictures.  Here are a couple of his last day on the job. :)





recipe
My Creative Time
Stitched Chevy Dies
Stitched "Capture" Frame Dies
3 Star Stitched Dies
Stitched Journal Die
You're My Best Buddy Stamp set

Extras
Teresa Collins pattern paper
Papertrey Ink cardstock
Tim Holtz ink
Stampin' Up ink

So grab your scraps and Upcycle something!  Have a beautiful day!
