Don't you just hate it when your DH is right?

Sunday we leave to return to the cold of Pennsylvania. :>(  
So three days ago, after my Mojo Monday card and my Atlantic Hearts Sketch card were complete, I packed up my crafting stuff in preparation for the trip home.

My DH came home from playing golf, saw everything was tidied up, and asked why I had packed up my stash already.   And then he predicted that it wouldn't stay packed.  

Yesterday, I slid a small sandwich bag of scraps out of my tote and just did a little cutting and piecing to make some backgrounds. 
(Beccy Muir has been making some fabulous cards using up scraps, her New Year's resolution.  You can see some of here awesome makes on her blog here.)
Once I'm back home, the backgrounds I've made will all be embossed before I use them on cards.  
Oh, I have missed my cuttlebug!

Then this morning, I made the mistake of glancing at Pinterest.   
Of course, I ended up unpacking just a couple things to make this birthday card, cased from a card originally posted on the Avery Elle blog.   

(Papers are Heartstrings from CTMH and the sentiment is a stamp from Taylored Expressions.)

In my own defense, I did need another birthday card and have already sent the card to my friend, Ewa.  But my DH was, indeed, right.  My stash didn't stay packed. 

I am entering this birthday card in the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew Challenge #81 - Birthday with Sentiment
Fantastic Tuesday Challenge #74 - Anything Goes with twist- Buttons

  3. Love the background idea using up scraps. You sure did get a lot of use from the Heartstring paper! Every one of the cards you created was lovely. And I'm surprised that you did not know the stamping rule - A Stamper never, ever puts away stamping stuff! You should stamp up some images to fussy cut on the way home. Hope you have a safe trip home!

  4. Thanks for sharing your lovely crafting for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 74 - hope to see you again soon, Hazel, DT x

  5. My rule has become "What you need first gets packed last" meaning the coffee pot, TP, and crafting goodies. :-D I love the backgrounds and the birthday card, Debi. Incredible papers o the birthday card !
