Leftovers

**My Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop post can be found here**


My husband doesn't eat them. My kids don't eat them. Usually I have to- I bring the leftovers to work for lunch the next day. Its a good thing I don't mind them, I think leftovers carry over to my crafting too.

Today's card for the Market Street Stamps Sketch Challenge, with the twist of including mists, uses leftover scraps of misted paper. I stamped the large Vintage Notepad over some white paper previously misted in orange, trimmed and adhered to a card base. I then drew a thought bubble onto a white scrap previously misted in blue, handwrote the sentiment and adhered that with dimensionals to the notebook paper. I'd like to think of this as a boy version to this card here. Ahh, I love spray mists.

You are seriously amazing with your spray mists and I love that you've got a his and hers version of the same card. One of my goodies for our blog hop is a Hero Arts thought bubble stamp set... looks like it would get a lot of use in your house. Leftovers are great, food or crafty ones...
