I feel so accomplished!

My scraps, especially my cardstock scraps, were out of control so I sat down and organized them! I went through them all and instead of just having one place for all of them just thrown in, I separated them by color into 3 containers...3-4 colors per container. I can even close the lids! Woo-hoo! I feel like I conquered the scraps! Now hopefully this will help me use them even more!

My kids are on Thanksgiving break for the week and we don't have many plans so hopefully that means lots of crafty time but we'll see. 

I thought I'd like to play along with some challenges so first off we have the Paper Pretties challenge which is to create a thank you card. I had planned on using Everyday Lily for this but....then I saw my friend Nancy had used her (and did a fab job) so I challenged myself to use something different.

Here's what I came up with using Giving Thanks Sophia. I paper pieced her dress and bow as they just screams paper piecing. The paper is some new Basic Grey Curio.



I used the sketch from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #94.




The little details~ Giving Thanks Sophia, Memento Tuxedo Black, copics, Basic Grey Curio, cardstock scraps--yup, I actually USED them!, nestabilities, copic mult-liner, dew drops--on sale!, flowers, Prima card jewelry, stickles,

I love your card! The paper piecing is fantastic.

I save my cardstock scraps just by color family warm, cool and neutral. That works great for me!!!

I need to get to work on doing my dp scraps. I have them all in two drawers and don't really look through them very often. Oh well!
