Freshly Made Sketch challenge, part IV

 
  I have found my mojo using Freshly Made Sketches!  This week they are celebrating their one year anniversary and the challenge is to use any sketch from the past year.  One lucky winner will be chosen as the "Queen of Clean."  If there were a prize for the person most inspired by this challenge, I think I would win :)

  This time I chose this delightful sketch:

  I perused the piles on my craft room floor (aka recent crafty purchases I want to use before putting away.)  I have 3 *new* 6x6 pads among my newest stash.  I looked over at my basket that holds my 6x6 pads, and it is stuffed to the gills.  I can not fit even one more pad in that basket.  Hmmmmmm...

  I need to make some sympathy cards, and I decided BasicGrey "Ambrosia" papers would work well.  I layered on dark grey Bazzill card stock, and added a Stampin' Up! charm and sentiment.  While I had the papers out I decided to do a little mass-production to use the maximum amount of  6x6 paper:
    A set of four cards!  I thought I might challenge myself to actually use this pad up, but I have learned that I prefer to finish one project, clean it up, then go in a different direction.  Perhaps it will all get used up eventually...in the mean time I am having loads of fun using as much of my scraps as I can while playing along with Freshly Made.

Happy Sunday!

Beauteous! I have this pad in my stash. And what are these "clean up and put away" words? I don't understand.

I store by crafty purchases in the same way. It's free down there by feet, leaned up against anything & everything! Love your cards!
