A Sweet Surprise...


A surprise extra post from me this week! Just wanted to share a little card that was made with my scraps on my desk that fits with the current and nearly ending Embellish challenge:

I think I'm addicted to the current Embellish Challenge and who would've thought it with my phobia of Melon Berry! This is a 3x3 card - love that size of card; I think it definitely adds to the sweetness/cuteness! The strip across the top was the negative scrap from my rick rack die - I kinda liked the shape of it, so stuck it on!

The whole thing that got me started on this card was not my attempt to tidy my desk, but something I read recently in Blogland about challenging yourself to create something outta your scraps in 10mins (I'll link it if I ever find it and didn't imagine it! Edited to add - it was on Jessica Witty's blog, thanks Karen!) Well this took about 10mins, admittedly the super dollop of glossy accents took slightly longer to dry so we won't count drying time, OK?! *wink*

Ah, I truly do ♥ this stamp set so much! Now I'll confess that the ice lolly (or Popsicle to some peeps *wink*) normally gets picked first for stamping, but I couldn't leave this sweet ice cream out, could I?!

Now I challenge you to have a go at this with your own scraps; you'll be surprised at what you can create, stress free whilst tidying your desk at the same time!

Stay tuned for my post tomorrow for our new CASE study challenge!

Catch ya later!

Super cute and fun card, the ric rac element is really great! Oh, and I think the 10 minute scrap challenge might be from Jessica Witty (Go To Gal?) or at least she has one on her blog?
