Christmas Cards From Scraps
. . . my green small embellishments drawers will barely close . . .
. . . and my scrap file is full of solid . . .
. . . and patterned paper scraps!
And, of course, I associate greens with Christmas and plan to complete my Christmas cards this weekend. I had a few pieces of solid scraps left over from the cards I made earlier this week at Crafty Tuesday, so I started by punching those into a variety of shapes.
Next, I pulled up my blog reader intending to use some of my time today to catch up with a week's worth of unread posts. Jacky's Christmas cards using scraps was all the inspiration I needed to get started on my weekend creating. I copied her design and completed two simple cards.
As Jacky so eloquently stated in her post, "simple didn't necessarily mean quick!"
What are you working on this weekend? Will you be joining in with Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities?
