"Bits & Pieces" Cards

Good SUNNY morning everyone, its beautiful and sunny here I do hope its the same where you are.
Yesterday I did a bit of a "tidy up of bits & pieces" you know the kind of thing!!! you have lots you push to one side saying "Oh! yes! I could use that and never seem to get round to it .... come on admit it we all do it!!!!!    On Friday I stamped two images of a stamp Hazel (my sister) asked about.  I did it in two different colours to show the effect.  I did them very quickly and intended to just bin them.  However when I looked at them again I thought I will see if I could use them.  That started me on a roll, I have a box where I pop bits I have Die Cut and don`t use, that was investigated as well.
Here are the results:-

First two are StampinUp images of a (free) stamp I received when I ordered some things.  Hazel has ordered and that`s the stamp she requested for when her goodies arrive.  She just wanted an idea of what it would be like. 
The two back left were made from the Die Cut Box. The other two were made from pieces Robert our younger Grandson did with Brushos & Pixie Powders.  He had stamped a Tree Line image on a piece.  I distressed the edges on that, cut it up and made a card.  I was pleased I managed to make cards using bits.   Actually I get far more of a thrill doing that ... must be the Aberdonian in me!!!!
That`s it for today.
Thank you so much for your visit today and all the your previous visits I really appreciate them all.

  3. Lovely cards can come from the most uncommon places. I always love it when I can use leftovers from something else. I have a large glass jar that is filling with flowers left over from other projects!

  4. Hi Patricia, Wow !! fabulous cards you have created here, from your 'bits' Wow !! I really should take your advice and try using up my 'bits' (I have loads of them, but never seem to go to them haha).
    Glad you have some sunshine, we had thick fog this morning, it didn't clear for hours, but when it did we got some sunshine too.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
