A good scrap card

Okay, I mostly misssed spring and it's already almost summer, but here is a great card to help you use up all of your scraps. If you are anything like me you save scraps. And I save them to a ridiculous (that's what hubby says) size. I have 4 accordian folders full of small scraps and 2 plastic cases full of larger scrap pages. So I finally decided to do something with the really small pieces. 

Basically I just put together a bunch of matching paper and cut it into strips. The biggest piece is 1.5" by 1. I managed to make 5 of these cars out of  8 little scraps of paper. I really liked them, but the were a little plain so I cut this butterfly from the Indy Art Cricut Cartridge and added some bling. What do you think?

Happy Crafting!

New Card

Wow, I haven't blogged in a while. What a shame because it's National Craft Month. But here goes. I finally got some time to make cards. Okay, I know this is a bad picture, but I took it with my cell phone. I made this card using the Cricut Handy Man Lite Cartridge. My coworker wanted something funny to give to her hubby for his birthday. 
This is what I came up with. It's a lot of pink, but that was the only wood grain paper I had. The pink paper is from American Crafts, and the rest is just random cardstock that I have. The font was printed on my computer.
