Scrapload of Cards! Again!

I have another scrapload of cards to share with you today! I had hopes of posting this earlier in the weekend, but time got away from me again. Why do the weekends go so fast? Saturday I had LOADS of fun at a local auction. It's not often my hubby goes with me, but this day he did. I know he regretted it. We closed the place down. There from to start to finish. Plus, our vehicle was completely full. I even had boxes on my lap! Lots of goodies. My biggest purchases: a dresser for our son and a primitive table. I bought lots of box lots. I'm hoping to post the treasures on my other blog: Made Or Found sometime on Monday, if you want to check it out!
I'm still on my endless quest to use my scraps. So, these cards, like the last bunch, came from my scrap file. I had lots of this DSP in So Saffron because I had cut a bunch for a class, then changed my mind about using them! They are just about gone!I really like this image from Friends 24-7. I challenged myself to use it because I thought it would be the neglected image in the set. I love the bird from this set, but now I really appreciate this one, too.I also like stamping them on the DSP. I didn't feel the need to color them! Couldn't be easier!
This last one isn't inked on DSP but I did use the Stitched background on the Very Vanilla cardstock. It's pretty subtle. (Click on it to get a closer look.) I used Blush Blossom because everything else I tried was just too dark. The piercing came about when I took out the brown thread I had stitched into the card. It was just too much. This is better, I think.

So, I hope to do more challenges this week! The big obstacle will be my daughter's Halloween costume. I haven't even started! So, if you hear from me, you know I either finished it quickly or became totally frustrated! We'll just see....
