About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

You Color My World

The CAS Sunday Challenge at the Outlawz today is to use the primary colors: Red, Blue, Yellow. I saw a card on Pinterest and I have been looking for the right time to put my own spin on it.
All the papers are from the Generations Paper Pack: Primary Colors. The crayons are generic crayons, I think I got them at one of those restaurants that gives out free crayons to kids. The bakers twine is from my stash. I hot glued the crayons together, wrapped them in red, yellow, and blue tend twine, and then tied the twine into a bow. Then I glued the crayons to the card. The sentiment is from Birdies Cards.

This was fun, quick, and easy. Hope you like it.
