Keeping this one super short and sweet today. Why?
I have the day off, hubby's at school, the kids are at school,
and you know the old saying about when the cat's away, don'tcha?
But in my case, the mommy will play --with her cardmaking supplies!
I hope to bang out a couple more Christmas cards
before the gang returns.
Notice how the last three cards have all used the same
sheet of background paper -- just different parts of the design?
Also I used the same stamp on this card as the one before,
but I only borrowed the little birdie this time.
I'm trying to do more of that. Use up what's already out
while the inspiration still lingers. In fact, I want to get a
box/tray for the corner of my desk for paper scraps that
need to get more use before I file the rest away.
This comes from both a severe lack of storage space
and a desire to be more economical with my supplies.
Do you guys ever craft that way?
