Celebrando con retazos....Celebrating with scraps

Sigo con mis tarjetas utilizando solo retazos de papel. Esta tarjetita la hice esta mañana al levantarme, hoy fue uno de esos días en los que me levanté bien tempranito con muchos ánimos de embelequear. Ya la pila de scraps que saqué para obligarme a trabajar con ellos ha bajado alguito, aun así me queda bastante camino para recorrer...y cuando termine de seguro voy a tener que volver a empezar Oh Jeez . Para mi este ha sido un verdadero reto pues me canso de trabajar con papeles que ya he utilizado, peeeero, hay que disciplinarse.

I keep working with cards made with scraps of paper. This morning was one of those in which I wake up very early full of energy and motivated to do what I like most, hang out in my SB room. My scrap pile has diminished a little, although I still have a lot to work before depleting it completely...and then I will have to start all over again Oh Jeez . For me this has been a REAL CHALLENGE, I tend to get bore easily and using the same papers is not an exception. But, I have to discipline myself.....

Receta / Recipe:
Scraps of paper / Birthday stamp set from TAC / Prima flowers with a bling in the center / Zig marks and Pearlescent chalk to paint the image / Brilliance pad in Pearlescent Thyme / Sewing machine and cream tapestry thread.

You've done a great job. I also have trouble using up scraps, my pile is still growing.

Way to go on using scraps! I love the stitching on this card too! I have got to tackle my scrap basket... maybe I'll take up the challenge tonight. Mwah haa haa haa! Sorry to hear about your heat gun... I know how horrible it is to want to get something done and a tool bites the dust! I'll look forward to see what you & your friend come up with this weekend! Have fun playing! ;)

How awesome you are to use up all of your scraps...I am guilty of saving scraps then never using them and then eventually throwing them away. I too need to use what I have, but its so hard when new things come out every 2 seconds lol. I like all the stitching you did on the card it looks really nice

Yep, I'm sure we all have the same problem with our 'scrap box'! Good to know - makes a girl feel less guilty about hoarding huh??!
Love your card - very creative.
Look forward to seeing what you come up with next to help us all use our scraps!
