WMC 42: It's Blog Hop Time!

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down to see my Etsy Inspired guest designer post.
Welcome to another Wee Memories challenge! This week we are welcoming our new DT members--Giovanna, Stephanie, & Wendy--with a blog hop!

You should have arrived here from Anita's blog. If not, don't worry...you can start the hop at the Wee Memories blog so you don't miss a thing!

For this week's challenge, we are asking you to dust off those scraps! YOU know you have plenty, so pull them out & get creative!
Our amazing sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking & More! One lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to use in their store!
Do you have any organization to your scraps? I have a plastic basket filled with them, so it's easy to grab & search for just the right scrap. 

My card was inspired by the plaid scrap I used for the middle of the flower & the border at the bottom. I am almost embarrassed to say that scrap is at least 5 years old! Once I selected it, though, the rest of the scraps were easy to choose. It still needed a little something, so I finished it off with a button in the center.

So, ready to play along? Use scraps on your creation, then link it up to the Wee Memories blog. You have until midnight PST on Fri., Feb. 11 to be eligible for the prize.

I hope you liked what you saw here. Head over to Jinny's blog next to see what she's created for this week's challenge!

Stamps: Up, Up, & Away Sentiments (PTI)
Paper: PTI kraft, various pp
Ink: Raspberry Fizz
Accessories: SU scallop trim border punch, SU Fresh Cut Notes, SU linen thread, PTI button
