Leftovers

My dad used to say sometimes, leftovers are better than the first time you tried it, in this case...he was right!

Here are the two cards that I created from the leftover digital paper that I used from yesterday's post but with a different layout.

The sketch layout is from Lauren of My Time... that she posted the past weekend. When I saw her post, I was debating if I should do it or not. I even thought I would pass this challenge and wait for next week's but right after I made my Mom's card and I have a couple of pieces of scraps leftover, I knew that her layout would be perfect! The sentiment for both cards is from the set Women of Life by Papertrey Ink.

And yes, Penny (<---- my sister) this will be your Mother's Day card unless Mama tells me that we have another sister somewhere...LOL!

One more thing, tonight is payback time! She dragged me to see Lifehouse... I'm dragging her to see my Keith Urban at HP Pavilion. It'll be a blast! Well, for me at least...LOL! I can't wait.

These are lovely. It's always nice to use what's leftover. I hate to throw away perfectly good stuff. You certainly made beautiful cards with what you had. Love the simplicity and the sentiments. :)
