"You're the best thing Since Sliced Bread"

Hi everyone!!
This is my second post for today~ I am on a roll...LOL
If you want to see my Bugaboo Stamps/Jaded Blossom Valentine's Day card you can click HERE

I know it is kinda late for me to be posting again but I started this card this afternoon and then left for the night to attend my son's chorus concert. They are all so adorable up on stage singing away but let me tell you he was thrilled the day was over. He had to go to school all dressed up~ shirt, tie and dress pants and he is such a sweat pants kinda kid....LOL. Poor guy! He can hang the tie up until the next concert which will also be his first band concert~ Yup he just found out he made the band...super proud of him!!
Anyways I was able to get back, get the kids tucked in and finish my card to enter into a few challenges.
Using this week's Peachy Keen Stamps sketch
I came up with this....
A humorous kind of Valentine's Day card!
I hope you like it!!
So I have this little problem but for this card it actually came in handy...ready...
I save EVERY piece of scrap paper...Yikes can you image the amount I have???
I have started to take the scraps and place them inside my Ziploc bag with the paper packs instead of in the big plastic tote I was used to using. Who would have known that this was so much easier of a solution to storing my scraps with the paper packs...LOL! 
I still do have plastic bins for my card stock and misc designer papers but clearly this is a better least for me to store my papers...
So for this card I used all the papers from My Minds Eye~ The Station  paper pack and Kraft card stock for the base.
The adorable sentiment as well as the bread stamps are from PK~127 Sandwich Fun and the cute cute faces are from PK~294 The Cornies. I did add some pink chalk and white gel pen doodles to their cheeks and teeth.
Here is a side you can see I popped the sentiment up using foam pop dots
and finished the inside of the card as well :)
Here is the other side view. I used my sewing machine around all the mats~don't you just love the added texture it gives??Finally I added some natural hemp twine that was in my stash~ probably from a package or gift I received...another one of my problems....I save it all.
You never know when you might need something like that...right??
 So there you have it.
What do you think???
Thanks for stopping by and I will see you all tomorrow!
I have a CUTE CAS card to share for TAWS!!

  7. OMG this is so CUTE! Love the faces you used for the bread, just adorable. Great take on that sketch my friend.

  8. I have the same problem, Jess. I save every scrap of paper. Once I cut a full size sheet, all the remaining pieces go in hanging folders sorted by color. I keep the hanging folders in a portable plastic container. I just started trying to reduce my scrap stash by making background papers using strips of scraps. Only made 2 so far! Slow process. Your card is terrific--so gawrsh darn cute! LOVE IT!

  9. YES!!Why of course I LOVE the stitching know I do...LOL!I had my scraps in a storage box and it was out of control so I am using them for banners,flowers,and background paper,especially for the inside of the card adnd envelope.Funny & Cute card!
