Well what a busy week!!! Our extension is proving to be a nightmare!! without getting too technical foundations are normally 18" deep, and it is normal to tie into your existing foundations, we finally found ours at 7ft 7"!!!! So I have a massive hole to bury myself in if it all gets too much ... in all honesty we have no idea what we are doing now & are waiting for engineers to get back to us. The good news is that further down the street neighbors of our are building an extension, they ran into the same problem, and have obviously resolved it, so it is possible!!!
I at the same time as all this was going on decided it was time to re organize my craft space ... it really wasn't working for me ... I have new interests and supplies, ie I now love journaling, and have just discovered Paper Clay ect. Also I think I put things where they fit rather thank thinking about access to things I use the most ...... Anyway 5 days later its all sorted, I've discovered things I had forgotten I had ect ... passed a few things onto crafty friends ... now it already waiting for me to come and play!! Just wish I could work out how to pretty my space up a bit working in a non converted loft is not the best of spaces .....
Anyhoo on to the card ( after all that is why I am here posting!!!) This is the last card I made with the final snippits from my " Fabulous Fashion" card ... In all honesty I looked at these 3 tiny bits of green card, and just wondered what I was meant to do with them!!! ... I certainly was not feeling the love, anyway this is what I came up with, I added a little die cut heart from my box of bits ( created from my scrap pile!!) ... and actually out of the 6 cards I made with the leftovers this is my fav!!
I have to say I do love challenging myself to use up every bit of a paper I cut into, not only is it very satisfying .... and I am not adding to the pile of scraps, It is also pushing me into trying other styles of cards, just to use them up ... I don't think this one is really my style, but it has turned out to be a Fav, just shows .... pushing myself out of my comfort zone is sometimes worth it!!
