Two For Thursday?

Hello Everyone,

I'm doing the happy dance right now because I have access to the internet! I've been "MIA" due to technology and don't mention computer with drawls...I was sick without my computer...literally! Well after paying almost $200.00 for repairs, I hoping that my laptop will hang in there until I can afford to buy a new one. *fingers crossed here*

So..... with all of the extra time on my hands, I was creating away and here are the cards that should have been posted yesterday.

The Pixie Cottage.......Re-cycle it or team sketch

Almost everything about my card is from what would have been a card. What I mean by this is, sometimes I make a card that just doesn't work for me and what I do from there is set it aside and start another one. I have learned to save some cards, or the pieces and images because they come in handy later down the road.

My image, The Pixie Cottages, Southend Girl is from my reject pile. I didn't like the dark airbrushed background and had put it aside for later use. The base card and design papers are from my scrap bin.

*********** All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge...Be Grateful*******

This weeks ATS is a fun and easy challenge, we want you to make a card that expresses thanks for something.

A Thanksgiving type image would have been perfect for this weeks challenge but I settled on Cupcake Kiki instead.
For more ATS DT inspiration and the challenge details, please click here. I also want to add that if you want a chance to be in the ATS highlights news letter and guest designer, get those challenge cards in. You never know...YOU could be next winner!

Take care and enjoy your day! I'll be back early tomorrow with something special!!!

Hi Risa, Oh, I do hope your lappy will give you loads more time after $200 of repairs, eek!! I recently had to buy a new computer and I think bankruptcy is in my near future :(

Your cards are fantastic, I love the gathering of misfit peices on your first card, everything looks perfect together and the second, that image is adorable and your colouring is amazing!!!

I hope you have a great weekend!!
