addicted to patterend paper scraps

......I can not stop, everything that has been made at my little desk the last few weeks has been done using my bits from my scraps basket!  deep deep down I think a phobia is starting to develop that is stopping me from cutting up lovely new sheets of patterened paper.....I am long into the stage of buying 2 of each design....one for cutting and one for stroking, but I think I am taking it to far now!



so here are my offerings, here are the quick cards I was working on the other week, all your woywwers out there will have spotted these on my desk, and when I say quick they took no more than ten minutes each, and I made myself not ink a single edge and resist the urge to fire up the sewing machine.  birdie house's are from a papertrey template and I made some atcs too.  these atcs are up for grabs if anyone is interested in doing a swap, just leave me a message.

heading out to a friends house later tonight for a scrap night, so looking forward to it, hugs m xx

:) Mandy, it is funny what you have written about a phobia :)
Your works are beautiful; trees on the hill are cute, birds houses are warm and friendly (I hope you know what I mean;))
