Random cards...from scraps!

Just sharing a few cards that I made for no reason, but they are good enough to share (at least I think so-heehee!). Here I used the scraps from Basic Grey paper and stamped the Row of Houses in the background and then pop dotted the little cute house. And then add a ribbon, Ta-da!
The following circle card came about when I was left with the Hero Arts Digit Kit (Friendship) text. I used CB and turned it into a circle card.
Also I'd like to share a picture that my DD Stephanie took at her university. Her photo was picture of the week in the Life Science forum in her university (see here). I am most proud of her photography skills. If I have her taking my card pictures, I know my chance of winning challenges increase by at least 50% (LOL)!
To thank you for visiting, I will draw two commenters for this post and give away these two cards.

Well I must say, HOORAY for scraps...what would we do without them? Love your cards and your wonderful ability to assemble them with such ease with beautiful colors and design!

What fun cards! Love 'em both, and so good that they were from scraps! The first one is my fave, because of all the scallops and flowers; the house background looks like it's foggy or rainy, a neat effect. Would love to have one of them! Stephanie's picture is a good one! Like Mother, like daughter!

The house card is very fun and love all the details you built into it. The scalloped circle card is very pretty and love the colors you selected. The sponging on the edges is a lovely touch.

Jill said...

Beautiful! I love both of these beauties! And I can't believe you made them with scraps!!!! You are probably tired of me saying this but--- YOU. ARE. A. GENIUS.
