Scraps happen.
It is not a bad thing, however, because with just a little idea here (on or there (, you will be making items with paper scraps every bit as cute as the original project.

Watch what happened on last Saturday’s LIVE from my MESK! FB show.

Live from my MESK, It's Saturday Morning!

Stop by and say Hello!

Posted by Mary Gunn FUNN on Saturday, September 14, 2019
LIVE from my MESK! can be seen on Saturday mornings on my FB page at 10:00 a.m. central

I pack a lot into a show, and my FUNN friends add a lot of color and flavor, too. Many of them are also FUNN University students. I am so lucky ducky to know and get to interact with so many great gals. Here is one of the cards I showed that I just love.

Hello card, CTMH, black and white tile
Black and White Tiles from the scraps of the National Stamping Month Thin Cut from Close To My Heart.

Look closely, because there is more!

SURPRISE! This is just the front of the card, too. There is plenty of room on the inside for a note. The cute stamp is the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Random Act of Kindness.

I can imagine this in all sorts of color combinations, can’t you? By the way, I share a slick trick on the show about the pretty new CTMH colors.
Heart to Heart is getting this card for the “Mixed Fonts” challenge. It wasn’t anything I did, but Close To My Heart artists really got a winner with this stamp as well as the other stamps of the set – – – SO CUTE! They make it pretty easy to look cute!

Here is another card with the same stamp, same die, but a completely different feel.

Really, I love the fall colors and this simple pattern.

This card I am submitting to the Inspired by Fall Challenge. It is a new challenge for me, but I have been totally loving their DT samples and entries. Be sure to check them out if you need some Fall inspiration.

Cool – like the mornings are getting.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and please know you are always welcome to join us any and every Saturday morning at my MESK! (messy desk).

Have a FUNNday MUNNday,
