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 Day 270 and a Happy Thanksgiving to ALL:)

So, it's Thanksgiving morning and I'm relaxing in my crafting room before our Thanksgiving dinner.  I have to say, there are SO MANY things I'm THANKFUL for today and EVERY DAY, but the 1 thing that comes to MIND today is my DEAR HUBBY.  I am SO THANKFUL for him!  He is a GREAT cook and has ALREADY started the preparation for today's FAMILY dinner!

The Christmas tree is UP, and ready to be decorated by our 3 grandsons...I'm cutting strips of paper so we can make a PAPER CHAIN that is quickly becoming one of the staples on my Christmas tree:)  I can't wait for the GRANDKIDS to come for a visit!

I've completed my card for the 365 Cards challenge, but have realized that while I'm challenging myself with the daily challenge, I'm forgetting that VINTAGE is also the name of the game this week.  While I won't win any awards for following directions, lol...I'm hoping I can award myself for actually FINISHING something.  You see, I always have great ambitions, but rarely have the time to actually follow progressive challenges to the end.

Because 365 Cards has such AMAZINGLY talented DTer's, though, it's VERY EASY be be inspired to play along.  Thanks, 365 Cards for another GREAT challenge today!

Today's challenge is hosted by Hannah and her twist is to use a dimensional sticker on your card.  Now, I normally do NOT use stickers (not because I don't like's because I prefer to "create" my own)...Like all of us, though, I DO have a stash of stickers AND have some that are dimensional so rummaged through my stash until I found something that matched the paper I had already decided to use (from my "scrap pile", mind you...heehee).  So I used some popped up stickers from Sandylion that I've had for at least a few years...again, thanks for the opportunity to put these to good use.

Here's what I came up with:

Now, if you've been following the challenge all week, you will notice that I copied a quote that Kim soon as I saw it, I knew it was one of those quotes that "speaks to me"...A new WORD document and a couple of text boxes later, I've got my quote for this card.

Whoo hoo!  I just love it when I can "homemake" my card sentiments:)


Have a VERY BLESSED Thanksgiving Holiday and BE SAFE:)

Umm yeah so not vintage. LOL But very cool and grungy! Love it. But...if they find out we are friends, and since they know I cheat at challenges all the will be made to sit in the back of the class with Rose and me!!! {we eat chocolate and make "comments" it's fun back there!}

Well, it may not be quite "vintage", but it's still super cute! I love the colors :-) Thanks for playing along this week!!
