Scrap Challenge

I issued our first challenge on Paper World and that challenge was to make a card with all or most all of the products on your card coming from your scrap pile or things you have had on hand for a long time. If you are anything like me, not only do you have a pile of card stock and DP papers, a stash of ribbon and other embellishments, but I also have a huge stack of stamped images, some colored and some not. Everything on my card came from one of those piles! I had stamped and colored several of these Christmas trees from Karen Lockhart. The tree is colored with Prismacolor pencils and then I used a Sakura glitter pen to color in the snow. Other than that, I am not sure of where any of the other things came from. If you want to make a card from your scraps, leave a link to your project/blog so I can come and check it out.

Only three more working days until my trip! Does anyone else have any exciting plans for Thanksgiving? Since we will be traveling I won't have to do a lot of cooking, probably just make a dessert and cranberry sauce. My grandmother serves the cranberry jelly stuff straight from the can and I thought I didn't like cranberries. I have since found out that I do like them and have a couple of sauce recipes that I use. Thanks for visiting, I love your comments! P.S. Stephanie, I am still laughing about the comment about the bumper sticker!
