Another Post for Tuesday!

I just had to post again and say what a great day this was!! I have had more energy today than I have had in a very long time. What a blessing! I puttered about my studio, doing some projects which I show in the post before this one, worked on some other things which aren't done yet, sent out several postcards for Postcrossing and then I put together this card from scraps and wrote a letter to a friend in Minnesota. She actually lives just across the state line from Fargo, South Dakota.

I'm trying to make a point of using up some of the tons of scraps I have from other projects. I always save bits and pieces of paper, etc from a project (just like all the other artists out there) and the very large pile needs to be diminished. So what better place than to put them on a card and then fill the card with a hand written message? The envelope for this was made from an old map. Rather fitting, I think!

I also want to put a plug in here for something I just purchased yesterday - two rolls of the tissue tape from Tim Holtz's Idea-ology collection. They are such fun and so easy to use and really adds something to your artwork! I have some on the card above, and I think I will be purchasing some more of his tapes in the very near future. After I use up some of the scrap stash of course!

It's been a happy day!!! :)
