"Shabby & from the Bit Box"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.
Thank you for taking time to come visit I love that you do that.  I hope you like what you see.  If you leave a comment I will know you have called by.  If you have a Blog I then return the favour and come visit you.
I am way behind with my posts this week.  Too many people needing some of my time and not enough of that to go round.   I thought once you stopped going out to work things got easier....................mmm!!   Not in my case, my goodness this week I have not had time to change my mind.  Having a bit more time today. my car is in the garage for a service and its first MOT.   Being out in the sticks I need a car so if it needs things done they just have to be done. Keeping my fingers crossed that there will not be anything to expensive.
My card today is one made with Bits I took out of the "Bit Box" and my "Die Cut Box"before I tipped the rest of the contents into the bag for the school.   There are only so many bits you can keep.  

Base card approx 4 x 6 white card. This was a 4 inch strip left from a 12 x 12 sheet
Burgundy card slightly distressed
A piece of text paper I think that might have been from a NitWit collection also slightly distressed
Patterened paper that was a bit torn
Scrap of music paper  ....  I always worry about using these papers.  I am not musical so do not have a clue what the music is.  Imagine using some really Funky music paper for a "sympathy" card!!!!
A Die cut oval it is a SB Die but which one??
Flowers made using a Cheery Lynn Die, leaves a Crealies Die  (I had made these flowers and never used them)  That`s them used up now....................!!
Some Bakers Twine
Couple of little buttons, scrap of lace and a few pearls
White card for the Stamping Up stamp "with love"

That`s it for today 
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate that you do that
Till next time
