CQC #184

Good evening!

I didn't get my quick computer time in this afternoon like I'd planned, so I'm trying to squeeze in a quick post while kids are taking showers. HA! Don't we become master clock manipulators once kids are in the picture? Wow. Sometimes it seems so hard to do anything! :)

I played around with a couple of projects earlier today and made this card to go along with the Colour Q challenge.

This card was fun because I basically put it together with items that were laying on my desk. You know the pieces you've cut out for a project and it didn't quite work out, but you can't bear to throw it away? That could just be me with my unhealthy aversion to wasting anything. I think I'm turning into my Dad! :) (Who banned me from throwing away any jar of Miracle Whip as a pre-teen because he swore he could get two more sandwiches worth of mayo out of the jar that I had thrown away.)   ... good memories! 

The black border, the embossed vellum, the gray card base and the label I stamped my sentiment on were all  piled up in front of me on my desk. It was exciting not only because I liked how it all came together, but because it's now out of my way. Two birds, as they say....

The stamp is "Heartfelt Phrases" from Verve Stamps; the heart is cut and stamped from my CTMH Art Philosophy Collection; Pink Glitter Gems and gray button are CTMH; and the embossing folder is "Julie's Garden" from Cuttlebug. 

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Very pretty card, Mandy, love the glittered button! Thanks for joining us this week at the colourQ and sharing your card.

  2. I'm the same way. I keep everything down to the smallest piece of paper. You just never know when you might need it. Love that you created a card with what you had laying around. Turned out great. Thanks for joining us this week at the colourQ.
