Finished Scrappy Cards and Cleaning

When I was cleaning up the mess from making my dish mats I noticed that clinging to the trimmed bits of terry towel was a lot of lovely bits of my favorite fabrics:


I tried to talk myself into sweeping them off the table and into the trash but I couldn't so I went and browsed my Google Reader instead. And saw this wonderful sketch at Get Sketchy:


You know where I'm going with this right?

So I started trimming the delightful little bits off the towel remnant and made a card:

and another

and still had scraps left so I made a few more


This made me very happy :-)

These are super cute, and a great way to use all the little scraps that are just too pretty to throw out! I have a grocery bag full of them and I think this would be a great way to use them up.
