thank you (use up scraps)

This mess was my craft/laundry room after my CPS anniversary challenge marathon.  Not pretty!  But before putting everything away, I challenged myself to make some cards using up scraps from my cards for CPS.  Here are two.

From the scraps of this card.  Made this using the watercolor Distress Ink block BG (it had taken me three tries to get the placement for the layout on the CPS sketch right!)  Used the leftover strips and "hung" them as if they were in front of a window.  Stitched at the top and balanced the bottom with a sentiment.

The next card was inspired by my napkin holder

and a card at CASE StudyChallenge awhile back.

I used the scraps of this card, stamped gingham BG squares, added a scalloped edge and a banner sentiment.  (Planned to make a birthday card with a sentiment "fluttering by with a big birthday hi"  then realized the scraps said "thank you"!)

Because the flutterbies are negatives of the butterfly punch, I am entering the Less is More challenge #55 Punches or Die Cuts.

The Mainzer Rosenmontag parade calls.  Helau.

I love the colours of your LIM card and although there isn't a lot of white space left it's a very cute design.
Thanks so much

Die Idee mit dem Bügeltisch gefällt mir. Ich finde das sitzen manchmal zu anstrengend und habe keinen passenden Tisch, an dem ich stehen kann. Ich glaube ich weiß wo mein Bügeltisch demnächst stehen wird.
Natürlich gefallen mir auch deine vielen tollen Karten, die du machst :-)
