Use What You Have!

What do you know?!  I’m posting a second time today!  I had some quiet time this afternoon as DH took the three boys to town with a couple of their school friends!  DD slept quite a bit and I worked on a few of those projects that always seem to be on the ole to do list.  Nothing huge, but little things that seem to like to hang over your head, bugging you until you heave a big sigh and just get them over with!  After a while, I granted myself some craft room time as a little reward for my effort.

I discovered The Sweet Stamp Shop has a challenge called Use What You Have and thought, “I can handle that!”

Being a clean and simple kind of gal, I whipped a card together using some of their wonderful stamps and some scrap pieces of cardstock that are always so plentiful in my craft room.

My scraps are stored in clear envelopes that are labeled and filed alphabetically…

I used stamps from two different stamp sets because I found a sentiment that just seemed to go with the theme I was aiming for!

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Color Wheel, Perfect Match)
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white), SU cardstock scraps
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Accessories:  pearl heart, foam dots

The color swatch panel is popped up with foam dots for dimension.  I thought this would be a fun wedding card to give to a couple!

Now I’m off to enjoy the evening!  I’ll be back tomorrow with the usual Wordless Wednesday!
