I have a bunch of scrap fabric from projects I had sewn and I'm accumulating quite a few scraps now that I'm sewing more often. I decided to use my scrap fabrics and cut them into a shape of a tree! I sort of randomly sewn up and down the tree. . .just to add a bit of texture. Does it look messy?

I found this really cute plastic envelope in my scrap pile. I decided to do something different and use it as a tag. . I've been having fun adding different elements to my cards, especially different textures and such. I've been soooo mainstream the past few years that I sorta got tired of it so I needed to change things or well, I would have probably given up blogging and such. It got to the point where I was losing interest in blogging. But. . .now that I'm sewing, creating jewelry, crocheting, etc. . .I have renewed interest in crafting and sharing my projects on my blog. . .:) It feels like when I first started stamping and making cards . . .I was so excited back then about walking into my craft room, learning new things, experimenting and sharing what I've learned on my blog. . .now, with the new crafts that I'm doing, it feels that way again!!! Yay!!!

Hey . . .I have a linky party in progress as well. . .link you card or any crafty project to my linky party "Crafty Friday Mash Up" . . .share your beautiful creation. . .:) Click Here I'll be drawing a winner at the end of month. . .you may win something crafty. . .:)

Anyway, that's it for today! Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday
