This is another card for today's challenge on SCS - using leftovers. Image is from Winds of Grace by Stampin' Up!, the background stripe and photo corners are leftovers from a Simply Scrappin' kit.

I made this card for Limited Supplies Challenge 152 on SCS- using leftovers. The challenge is to use leftovers from previous projects. I found the background in my scraps of attempted techniques, it was made by putting rubber bands on my brayer. I also found a whole stack of Vintage Violet scraps - thought that was all gone a while ago! I added Dazzling Diamonds to the flower for some "Bling", but I don't think it showed up in the scan. I made this card for my SIL's sister's birthday.
OK, so yesterday morning, we awoke to a temperature of 60º inside the house! Obviously our heat pump had stopped working overnight! And naturally our American Home Shield warranty just ran out 3 weeks ago! So my dear and wonderful husband, who is an electronic technician, decided to look at a few obvious (to him) things, before calling for service. He found a loose connection on something, fixed it, and saved us who knows how much $$$ on a service call!!! Now today it's 2º outside, but a balmy 74º inside!!! Yeah!

This is for the Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS (WT150) using Paint. I used some old crackle medium that I've had for quite a while (bought it during my painting phase, which came before my stamping phase!) , then stamped with Stazon, and colored with pastels & a blender pen.
