Hello my friends...


I really haven't had a whole lot of time for crafting.
But I did manage to squeeze in this card.
And I am hoping to play a little bit more today.
although I keep telling my self I need to get outside and
do some work out in my yard.  I need to replant some plant the
got fried in this heat. and trim back some other plants that are way out
out of control.  Well enough about that.

I am back with this weeks Card for
 City Crafter Challenge Blog.

Cheryl is our lovely hostess and this week is
asking us to Scrap Happy..
I love it..
I have sooooo many scraps. Like most of you probably do
I save every little piece of paper.


Even this little bird is one I printed awhile ago and never used.




I printed out the little hello on my computer.



I have little scraps of burlap I love to add to little project like this
and of course some stitching..  


So there you have it.. Another fun challenge over at City Crafters
So come play with us an use up some of those scrap pieces..
You might just win something.

To get all the details you can hop on over to CCCB!
Or you can hop on over to
Cheryl's, Kirsty's or Ros or Marion(GD) Blog
 and get some inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Till next time my friends.

This is fab! I love how you've used all those scraps,I ve got so many bits that I squirrel away Id have loved to have had time to enter but ive a busy few days. I'm wondering if you could answer a little query for me,can you enter only the one challenge with city crafter or can you enter several challenges with the same project,I wasn't sure how to interpret the rules but love your challeng themes and would like to enter more often. Sorry for the long note,Julie x
