100 Followers! Thanks all for taking the time to sign up to follow my blog. I hope you are enjoying my thoughts and ideas.

Here is a card I made from my scrap box. It uses Early Espresso, More Mustard and Cajun Craze - just some pieces left over from other cards. The sentiment is from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, punched with the scalloped oval and sponged with Cajun Craze. So - that got me going through some of my other boxes of leftovers and pre-cut pieces that I have stored (I'm ashamed to say I have boxes of pre-cuts that I will probably never use!)

I have about 25 of these embossed pieces from a Stamp-a-Stack night in Really Rust and Taken with Teal. So I made up some quick cards and used a variety of the Teeny Tiny Wishes on them.

I have a stack of these embossed pieces that I made up with my upline (sister)'s Big Shot before I had my own. Also had made a bunch of the butterflies so put together a couple cards with those.

This one uses a piece of Marina Mist that I embossed to show a friend how the embossing folders worked. Since I wasn't making anything at the moment I threw it in the scrap box.

This one has butterflies cut from the retired Bride paper and then inked with Early Espresso. The designer paper is the new Greenhouse Gala. All in all I think I made pretty good use of my scraps :-)
