Resourceful–No 1

I cleared out a card-making scraps drawer at the weekend and made these:

I made this one for my brother-in-law, whose birthday was this week.  The wellingtons are peel-offs, coloured with pencil crayon.  All the papers and card are from my scraps drawer – and I had forgotten I had the little round Birthday greetings!

The girl was already stamped, so I coloured her in with my Promarker pens (I really should use them more often!), and the pink background was some practise with the brayer some time ago. The big butterfly is another peel-off already coloured in with pencil crayon.

And the scraps drawer?  It is all nice and tidy again now, and I knwo what is in there!


My word for the year is RESOURCEFUl, and this is number 1 in an occasional series for 2012.

Great use of your scraps - I need to organize mine soon and might just make some cards while I'm doing it!
