Chirp Up Card-2 Challenges

I will be giving this cute little Chirp me up card to a friend that can use some cheering up!  I made this card for 2 challenges, Allsorts Week 40 Challenge-Tag, Ticket or Label and Polka Doodle Week 7 Challenge-Sketch & For the Birds Theme.  It is nice to make cards for challenges that I end up giving out so quickly.  I wasn't sure when I started entering challenges if my cards would end up with the rest of my stash with no place to go!  I like to make my cards fresh and as needed, they seem to mean more to me as well as the person I give them too.  Needless to say I am glad they are all finding good homes.  Did I just say that...
Once again all the materials used came from scraps and stash!  Embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Cricut to cut out the little tag, Stampin' Up Very Punny stamp and a Martha Stewart Edger.  I am trying to use up smaller or "mistake" scraps from other projects just made...anything look familiar.  I have got to continue to use the leftovers right away or toss them.  I have a "leftover" basket with smaller scraps that I toss once a month.  Of course I wait until we have our monthly crop and put it in the share box then whatever is left goes into the recycle bin.  It is really really hard for me to toss any scrap, doing it this way makes me feel less guilty..strange but so true!

OMG...too sinking funny, my hubbie has been printing some of his "sports stuff" and commented on how he was going to get it laminated.  Lightbulb!..didn't I get a Your Story machine when I bought my Cricut from HSN.  It has been sitting unopened in the box until just a few minutes ago...hahaha.  I told him he could open it, figure out how to use it and then teach me.  He did it in the time it took me to post this blog he got the job done.  A first for sure!  I may have created a binding and laminating monster... maybe now he will put up my shelves..lol

Lovely card Marjo, great colours, strong and bright,super!
Thank you for the comment on my blog too, very kind, I'm pleased you like my card, you asked me about the image, I usually do a link in my post to graphics that I use but unfortunatly I did'nt do it that time, but its a 'Huggies; graphic not a stamp, although I did alter the colour digitally to suit my design. hope this is helpful, but don't hesitate to contact me again if I can help you further.
Happy crafting, Jacee

Hi Marjo

A really bright sunny feel to your card, something about stripes that always make a card look smart.

Thank you for joining us at Allsorts and Polkadoodles challenges this week.
