CAS card with scraps lying around


Hello my sweet bloggers,


I made this super simple and quick card last night using scraps lying around on my table...



Supplies:

Base card stock - textured white
Bird border punch - MS
Red border punch - EK Success
Check ribbon - Amercan craft


I quite liked it - simple and sweet and not much stress on my hands or neck...

I am going to submit this card for Less is More - use up your scraps!




Thanks to a suggestion given by one of you kind souls out there I am trying to punch and stamp with my feet and it seems to be working out fairly well. Thanks so much... You opened my mind. And lifted my spirits!!! Lol.


Have a good weekend.

Hugs,

Monica

Great card, Monica! someone suggested you craft with your feet! I don't know about that but how about quilling. It doesn't take lots of strength. Oh, I saw you card on MIM.
