Card of Scraps

For those who know me, I keep my scraps!  I'm not necessarily a' hoader' per say.  But, more like 'thrifty'.  I keep my scraps.  Yes, all sizes of scraps.  But, I'm an organized 'keeper'.  If its a package of DSP, I only open one end, and keep all my scraps in the 'package'.  If its loose paper (pattern or otherwise) I keep them in 12" x 12" sleeves.  And, its not as many sleeves as you would think.  I have one for each color 'family'.  So, all whites, vanillas, blacks, and greys in one sleeve.  All reds and pinks in another sleeve.  You get the idea.  I have one for the white family, the red family, the green family, the blue family, and the brown family.  (The brown family also contains all versions of yellows and oranges.)

The reason I've mentioned this tidbit of information, is that the wonderfully talented Maria, has a sketch for us @ Sketch Frenzy Friday!  and just look at the sketch!  It's beautiful! and it's calling my scraps! what a clever way to use what you already have, and roughly the correct size! Talk about an easy peasy card!  The sketch:

I wanted to use both some pattern paper I haven't used in awhile and a stamp set that has never been wet with ink.  Sounds pretty thrifty.  Ok, I have a few stamp sets that fit this little requirement of mine.  I selected a three stamp sets that are mounted, however, they just have never been used.  Wow! that's pretty sad, considering how much time and money I spend on paper crafting supplies.  So, here is my card. 

Now, I have a little challenge of my own.  If you can name one of the stamp sets that I used on this card, but have not used it before, I'll enter your name in a drawing for the stamp set.  The stamp set is clear.  It's already mounted.  Now, I have used it - once.   Before you start wracking your brain, head on over to Tammy's F.'s blog to see what she has created.  And join us, won't you?
