Sympathy

Scraps. I have a love/hate relationship with printed paper scraps. I try to use them up as quickly as possible, because after a few months they just accumulate and take over if not tended to regularly, kinda like weeds in a garden. If they accumulate beyond reason I put them in a bin for my kids to use for their crafting projects... So to use them up I perodically take two patterned paper scraps that I would not normally put together, and line them up in pairs and use them up! This stamped image from Christine Adolph is an incredible image - versatile enough to use for just about any occasion. This particular card is a sympathy card. card size: A6; Christine Aldolph for Stampington & Company rubber stamp image; SU thyme cardstock; Anna Griffin and 7gypsies printed papers; Making Memories spiral clip; navy SU grosgrain ribbon; May Arts ivory gauze ribbon, Olive Vine, Solar Gold and Oyster Glimmer Mist (http://www.mytatteredangels.com/); SU olive and navy markers.

I wish I could make such a beautiful card with my scraps! That is an good analogy you used. I never thought of scraps being like weeds...but it's true!
