Cleaning up the Desk

I woke up this morning determined to use a small pile of scraps that had been left on my desk from several other projects I worked on this week. I find that I don't use as many of these "scraps" as I should, so I'm trying to do better.

I'm pretty happy with this little tag, love the sequin butterflies, wish I could find the punchinella that made these, LOL. I'm also happy that I used up some of the scraps from the week!

We had a great family night playing cards last night, but I lost most of my (I mean my husband's) money. Looking forward to a chance to win it back soon, though I may have to use my own cash next time.

thanks for stopping by -- hope you have a great day. It's a torrential downpoor today so I think we are headed off to the flea market. I've got some projects in the works that I need a few things for.

  2. I have just discovered Spotted Canary on one of my cable channels and I LOVE this show. I've always been a fan of Joy when she guested on Carol Duvall or Sandy Genovese shows. Now I can watch her every day. I found your blog and must tell you I love your style.
    I am commenting on the "scrap tag" post because I am a big fan of making quick cards, etc. with my piles of scraps. Love this tag...those butterflies are just beautiful.
