I challenged myself to a challenge. As I noticedmy "scrap bin" overflowing with paper pieces, of different shapes and sizes. I must admit, I have to figure out a better way to organize my scrap bin! Any suggestions will be taken into consideration! Anyway, I closed my eyes and reached into the scrap bin and pulled out a piece of paper. "I have to use this." So, then I thought: "Why not just go back in there and see what comes out!" So I closed my eyes again and reached in... and then again... So I decided I would use all of those pieces to make a card. I have a little drawer that I keep all of those pesky, but loved, Cricut cuts that weren't the right size, or color for whatever project I was making. I thought, why not, right? So I blindly picked one of those out as well... VERY SCARY!!!! I was a little nervous and thought that some people might not like what comes out of this little project! But, it was a mini adventure in the realm of my craftroom, all picked by feel, not by looks. It didn't turn out too bad! The only thing I allowed myself to do was to stamp something and use a pen, and trim the pieces with my paper trimmer to get them the correct size I wanted.. No inking, nothing else!
So, if you are like me, and have tons of scrap little pieces, please challenge yourself to choose blindly what you will create with! It's kind of exhilerating and petrifying all at the same time! I hope you like my "Scrappy Card!" I think that is what I am going to start calling these... Scrappy Cards! If you make a Scrappy Card, please please share it with me! I would love to see it!

By the way, I think the Scalloped Circle is from Storybook.
Thanks for peeking!
