Did You Know....

.....that you can use the "scraps" from the stamp package? Huh!? Here is my little "discovery" while making an impromptu card this Sunday morning.... I felt that I NEED to make something, something for FUN. This challenge over CASE Study  (challenge #75) really strike my fancy! After looking at the my stamps, I realize I NEED want a strip of rubbah!And look what I did! I cut off the excess of this cling set's negative strip and voila! There is my strip of rubber!!
Here is the result

Lately I am in a rainbow mood...perhaps the winter blah is getting to me and I crave for colors. So thanks for letting me share my little "fix"! I'll be back tomorrow with a guest design post!
