We all have an abundance of those leftover bits of paper - Right!
How hard is it to create a card using them?
Well for me this challenge was just that.
Even with boxes/drawers of bits, somehow I found it
hard to get what I was happy with. 
In the end after leaving it for a few days,
 contemplating whether to just thow it out and start again.
 I finally finished with something I am happy with.
I knew I wanted to use some leftovers (scraps) from
the retired SU Pumpkin Pie DP
then went looking for a colour to go with them.
Found one and started die cutting
The top strip is from Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders,
Butterfly is CUTplorations Flutter Zen #2
Sentiment - Impression Obsession
Leaf Swirl - Fancy That - inked with Lindy's Magical's.
Kaisercraft pearl.
That's my take on our Word Challenge.

Happy Everything!

 Don't you love it when a card comes together quickly?
This is exactly what happened for the Latest Challenge at
The chosen the Theme is
(Just has to have Happy in your sentiment)

I knew I wanted to ink up a stamp that
has those very words.
It's from STAMPlorations Happy Everything
as is the floral stamp - Darling Dog Roses.
I was going to heat emboss in gold on to
white card stock but
had the Paper Rose DP close by and
decided to see what it looked like
heat embossing in white.
Turned out nicely and finished with
adding a few little white hearts
and adhered to white card base. 
So there you have it - 
an easy peasy CAS Happy Everything card.
Head over and see how my Sistahs
chose to use the 'HAPPY'
Hope to see yours in our Gallery.
