My Time to Craft Challenge #72 – Anything Goes

I have been telling myself all week that I am going to get to some crafting.  It’s Wednesday night already and I am just getting started, and it’s late.  Better late than never right?  This sketch from Clean & Simple was perfect for a simple card.  It also served as a confidence builder that I was able to finally get something done.  I’m planning to set aside more time tomorrow.  I found the ‘Wish’ rhinestone word on clearance yesterday at Michael’s.  Great turnaround time on buying and using, don’t you think!

I’ve used the CTMH Evensong Paper Pack and you can see how versatile it is and how you can use it with many different stamp sets.  I made a bunch of layouts with this set and then made cards with the scraps.  It’s amazing how far scraps will go when you try using them up by making cards.  This is a great way to use up paper and I love “finishing” an entire paper pack.
