Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

365 Cards, you've inspired me again:)

So have you been lucky enough to have a vision of what you wanted to create AS SOON as you saw a challenge? Well, this is certainly what happened to me over at 365 Cards when I saw the challenge for Day 81.

This doesn't happen to me often, but when it does, I am SO focused until I finish the project. This was more awesome for a few reasons...

1. I've been working hard to use ONLY my scraps when making cards (except for the occasional brand new sheet I use for my card base).

2. I've been trying to make masculine cards since Father's Day is right around the corner AND I am trying to make some samples for a card class I want to teach in June at EA.

3. I just LOVE this old pp I've had in my stash forEVER, lol...

I just used my 3/4" EK Success square punch (one of those deFINite frugal purchases I made many moons ago) to punch out my 5 squares. I then inked them with one of my cat's eye chalk inks. I stamped on some layered cardstock, added a bit of ribbon (also from many moons ago) and viola, my card was complete:)

Hopefully, you are getting the inspiration you need to complete all of your creative projects:)

Thanks for visiting:)

Lori, Love your card and as soon as I saw today's challenge I knew immediately what my card would be and that I would use square brads.
