Okay!  Okay, already!  I posted something!  It is more from that Simon Says Stamp kit.  You know, the one that inspires me to use birds called Music to My Ears.  That circular stain is part of the pattern on the paper that's not where I rested my drink.  Pinky promise!

I agreed to teach a make and take class in March for a zillion ladies (okay, maybe closer to 45) so I am thinking something along these lines with all the strips of papers cut like banners.  The class focus would be how to use up all the scrap strips of cool papers we all have lying around.  I got the idea from Crooked Stamper's Blog, in particular this post.  I made the above card before I came across this post, so I already learned the value of left over scraps as banners.

The Fine Print: Papers from Basic Grey "Serenade," stamp from Simon Says Stamp, twine from Doodlebug, birds on a wire punch from Martha Stewart.

Wow, love this Judy (along with your pinky promise). Super use of snippets - if you link into the Playground I bet loads of the girlies will be interested!

There's about 1" of snow though so wrap up warm.

Hugs, Di xx

Great card, PJ, and awesome idea for snipperts useage!! Also, even though it's not a drink mark, it's a great tip for going ahead and using those accidentally drinked-marked papers, too!!

Let's bring big cardboard boxes for sliding at the Playground, because our bottoms will get wet if go on the swings today.

I love this card! It is such a simple yet effective way to use up the left over papers. I really like the shape of it too, with the two curved corners! :) x
