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:)

A few more cards & Sketches:)

Well, I'm telling you fellow paper crafters...I'm REALLY proud of myself for keeping with the theme this year of usin' my stash!  I've made yet another two cards using the same pp I started with a few weeks ago...gotta use every last scrap, right?

I've joined in on two challenges this week...and made two DIFFERENT cards with the same paper:)  Together, they would make a great gift for someone, now ya know EVERYONE just LOVES homemade cards, right?  How about giving them to friends and family as gifts so THEY can give them out?  Great idea, huh?

Here are the two cards I just made this morning (with the help of two awesome sketches for inspiration):
Now for the sketch challenges:

This one is a very inspirational sketch I found at the Frosted Designs Blog.  I really had fun with this sketch...and my stash:)
