ok, no, i don't actually have a slice of meatloaf for the entire blogiverse!* this week at shopping our stash the brief is to use something already on your desk or worktable to create a brand new project. i have to confess that fairly often at the end of the night i will paste my smaller leftovers randomly into my journal, just to avoid having to clean up! this time i challenged myself to use as many as possible... and get out as few new things as possible... to make a brand new card. here it is now:
last week's SOS card, isn't it? see, i still had an extra eiffel tower, and a few other transparency bits and that pretty sprig of cut-out flowers sitting on my table. there was also a panel of light red/dark pink paper, and a roll of silvery washi tape that i didn't use in my jingle belles card. i have no idea why i had sheet music scraps, but i did, and it seemed a shame not to use them. in fact, the only things i went looking for were the large piece of ledger-patterned cardstock-weight paper from which i made my card base, and my handy file of assorted rub-ons! i like that this card has enough in common with last week's that you can see the evolutionary process; but it's different enough to still be fun. very unusually for me, this card is ENTIRELY flat! no gems, no lumpy flowers, not even anything mounted on foam tape... i'm pretty sure this can be mailed for 46 cents! SCORE!!! :)
and now i'm absolutely positive that you'll want to swing by shopping our stash to see what the rest of the team has done, and so do i! see you there!
*i'm pretty sure that would require a bigger loaf pan than we currently own! :) :) :)
