Have a Twinkly Day!

Hello there!

My son was invited to a birthday party in our new neighborhood.  So happy to see little ones make friends fast!   Any how, I have not had a chance to get out and about in our new area to shop for a card (which would have been easier given our situation).  Obviously, I have all the makings to make cards, but the problem is finding all my crafty things in a miscellaneous mess. The packers had their own method of packing and labeling, and we still have things in boxes because of the various projects we have going on.  So, I resorted to my scrap pile I had leftover when living at my Mom's house during our transition period. This I could find! I am not complaining because I need to use my scraps up, but I am not feeling very creative these days, so I used a couple of challenge as a jumping off point!

So, I took the challenge from Paper and Such Design Blog for the color inspiration. This was a challenge because these are not colors I go to often, but had all the making in my scrap bag. I also love to be challenged!
Next I took some creative liberty and used the sketch from The Ribbon Reel Challenge blog.  
Since this is for a four year old little girl who is every bit a little princess, I found some glitter paper in my stash, and thought it was fitting for her card.  However, I decided to try stamping on it, and as I suspected it doesn't take the ink well and fades right away...again, she is only four and I am pretty sure will care less! :-) Noted to use for backing paper only! :-) I had a doily remnant left over from a project way back, and inked it with some Antique Linen so it wasn't stark white. I added some ribbon and twine, and flowers all in my stash bag, and put my darling paper pieced Angel Princess in the center and my son has a card for the party!  Now on to do the birthday present shopping, oh and I will need gift wrap. I have looked...can't find my storage container with my wrapping paper. Moving is FUN! 

I will link this up with Jules' Crafty Snippet Challenge because all the items came from my stash! This is a great idea because I have a huge pile, and in a box somewhere is another huge pile before the move.

Well, that's it for me today! Not sure when I will be getting crafty again, but I love to check on to see what everyone else is creationing when I can! It keeps me inspired! 
Good Day!
~Tammy~

Hi Tammy

Two makes in two days with your snippets .. .. well done.

Perhaps that what we should all do .. .. pack away our "preferred stash" and give ourselves access to just our leftovers!

I love the colours you have used and your finished card is just perfect for a princess!

I hope the party is a good one.

Thank you for playing along with my little snippet challenge again.

Love Jules xx

Argh, I wish I knew how to get your posts to show up full in my google reader, any ideas? I love your card, especially when you say you made it with what you had on hand, ie, what you could fin! I think this would be perfect for a little girl!

Ugh, moving is NOT fun. I'm so glad your little man has found a friend. Your card is so sweet, and I LOVE that you made it with what you had. It's always easier to make cards with infinite supplies, but your resourcefulness paid off and you made a gorgeous card for the little girl. Hang in there, and I hope you get some crafy time in soon. I love seeing your work!
