WOYWW


Not sure you can see on my WOYWW this week but why is it when you go to Craft show in the back of your mind there is something you regret not buying. In my case it was the teapot set from MFT, the trouble is  the stall  had already had half of my craft money and the set including dies and stamps were about £20. So what did I do regret it and then buy it online for which probably cost me including postage about another £4. Oh well it did come in super quick time.
Another terrible thing I've done lately is joined Pinterest far too addictive but I found some amazing Clean and  Simple cards. So I decided to case this particular card, thought it would work for a mans card. It would've have helped to take the pic to the craftroom rather than rely on my memory.

First one I made my squares too large and only three, the extra button and twill was my touch. Papers are left overs from a set of printed Nitwits papers.


This time I used five squares and then when I checked the originally it in fact rectangles! Papers this time are Basic Grey and the sentiment is from a Penny Black Transparent set. I'm not entering these in the Less is More challenge even though they're are made from scraps simply because I feel it not my idea.

I think that is sweet that you are not entering because you feel it wouldn't be right since they weren't your idea-such integrity! A girl after my own heart. I think both cards are fabulous though. We are having a little craft convention coming soon and all the good vendors aren't coming this year but I suspect if I don't go--I'll regret that! And if I do go--there will be some purchase I didn't make that I'll regret.

That IS a cute teapot set I must say! Those kick yourself moments involving the not buying... Exactly why I bought a die last week...I don't have any plan for it, but knew that if I didn't.....so you aren't alone!

These are both great cards Debby, I have actually made a card without an image on today and have to say it's made a refreshing change. Thanks for visiting my blog today and leaving such a lovely comment.

I like your cards. This is a perfect way to use up scraps and make any type of card with this sketch.

Hazel said...

That's the sort of thing I do - wish I'd bought something when I had the chance and end up paying more because I really want it. Love your card (Hazel, WOYWW #5) x

I LoVe those cards and what a great way of using up all those little squares and rectangles of paper you are left with ... I have boxes of the things and normally pass them to a friend to use in school! Might have to have a rethink now. Debbie #89

These are ideal for using up scraps and yet do not look like cards that were designed just for that purpose.

Simple with a bit of an edge!
