Totally ashamed

Are any of you hanging your heads in shame at the moment? I am. Why am I ashamed? Well, Chrissie and Mandi over at Less Is More have challenged us to make a CAS card using our scrap supplies......and I have 3 huge bags of scrap! How wasteful am I?

Here's entry No 1 (There may be a few entries from me this week!)
I thoroughly enjoyed making this card, and even though I bought a shed-load of new stamps and dies at the Farnborough craft show this week, I couldn't bring myself to use any of them yet. I feel so guilty at the amount of scrap that I have just waiting to be used up. Mind you, there is one 'new' thing on the card; the bakers twine.

And to prove that the paper was scrap here's a snap of it in a pile of papers I've pulled out and I'm going to use these up before I break into anything new.

Thanks for nudging my conscience ladies!


Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

What fabby bits and bobs Sharon... how strong willed you are not to break into your new stuff... except for the twine of course, which looks great.
Super card by the way... and we did have fun at Farnborough didn't we!

I think the design on this is great, so like the rounded edges, the twine adds that little bit extra. Super card.

Vicky Hayes said...

This is a lovely way to use scraps Sharon and the twine finishes the design off beautifully! Vicky x
