Thank You very much and Challenge Winner

I was inspired by Shelly over at
to use some scraps
spent a little time today sorting out my mounding scrap pile
and am going to try this week to lighten up the mound
the only thing new I had to cut was the base
this card is 4.25 x 4.25
all the other pieces scraps and pieces I cut for other projects and didn't use
Winner of the April Showers Challenge

  6. Love the bright yellow, gives me Spring fever! Living in the NW has made me treasure every sign of spring! (Can't complain today, beautiful blue skies and sunny). TFS...and for the reminder to 'use scraps'...keeping track of them and trying to organize them is an ongoing challenge.
    XOXOX & Blessings,
