Scraps Blog Hop, Day One

Welcome to the Scraps Blog Hop... If you came from Vintage Heartfelt Designs, you're in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to play along, start at the beginning at

Now onto my card for today. I decided to pull out my favorite scraps from the pile (I have loads to chose from) and throw this together. I love the color variations and want to make more of these. Who doesn't need a load of thank you cards? 

The "thanks" is a Sizzix die that gets lots of lovin' from me. I cut out abut 30 in different colors to use for later. The papers are a modge podge that I have accumulated over several years. I bet that you could make something just as simple. I was looking at it again and will "sew" around the scraps with my Sew Easy from We R Memory Keepers

I hope that you will be inspired by all the talented bloggers today and that you will join us tomorrow for another project. I will be offering blog candy for these two days. It will be a gift card from AC Moore, Michaels or Joanns (you get to choose). There are only two requirements:

1. Be a follower of this blog
2. Leave a comment on today and/or tomorrow's post

Simple as pie, eh? Well, off I send you to Nadia's amazing blog. Until tomorrow.....
