So after rubbing the rub ons until I could rub no more on Wednesday, I was still in a mood to work on using things up. It's been a while since I've made any cards, I thought, and my stock of ready-to-sends is at an all time low, so that's where I began.
I took all the scraps and cut offs from my latest layouts - all shapes and sizes - and I machine stitched round the sides of each one

then I pulled together a random assortment of journaling cards and embellishments, again from my latest pages, so it's all from the Gossamer Blue March kit:
to add to the fronts of some ready made 5x5 inch card blanks.
I took my pages as a starting point, so you can see that the butterflies and yellow gelato I used recently have made another appearance
and that's what it's all about here at the minute: not using something once and forgetting about it, but keeping it close at hand until it's done. Or nearly: I'd be sorry to have used up my gelatos already. Ah, did I really say that? If you read on Wednesday, you'll know that now I sound exactly like my mother. .
