A "Limited Supplies" Card and Proud Tuesday

I mentioned that I made cards last weekend up at camp.
What I didn't tell you was that I was in a paper swap. It was on 2Peas. You could only swap paper, stickers or anything paper. No chipboard or embellishments...just papers.
It was fun trying to come up with paper only products. Oh ya and it also had to fit in a standard size envelope, not any bigger.
So I had received my package and brought it, a paper pack, some punches and some cardstock with me to camp to make some cards. 
Actually I really enjoyed having only a few things on hand, it was a challenge, but fun. 
But I did bring (I carry them with me everywhere) tiny post it notes with me and wrote on them the things I wanted to add when I got home.

So here is one of my Limited Supplies cards.
This is only the second image that I have coloured, to match my pattern paper.
So how did I do? 
 Sorry this picture is blurry. It didn't look like that before I posted it :(
I used my white gel pen to add the white dots to the ruffles on her outfit.
 This sentiment was in the paper pack I brought with me.
 There was a big blank space when I sat the girl on the edge of the sentiment.
So with a flick of my marker I added some stems. Then I punched out these tiny flowers and popped them up with foam tape.
When I got home I added the rinestones to the centers.
Onto My Day:
Kristy stayed home from school this morning , but then insisted to go in the afternoon. She hates to miss school. Heather and I tried to make her stay home, but she was insistant.
I spent too much time on the computer today/
Wayne worked till 8:00pm again.

Proud Tuesday
Kristy takes her schooling seriously
I only drank 1 can of coke today (that is all that was in the house and I didn't feel like going out, lol)
Organized a bit
Walked everyday....except today

What have you done today to make you feel proud?

A had a couple questions about my Travel Journal. One of them being where did I get my note book from?
I bought it from Staples, a few years ago.

Hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)



  1. Your card looks great, considering you only had limited supplies.
    I found a couple of Magnolia stamps in my stash
    I would love for you to have them--if you would send your snail mail addy

  2. The dots on her ruffle is such a pretty touch!

  3. Love that you doodled your own stems. It's the perfect item for the space. The sentiment acts like a planter even!

  4. Wow, you drew your own flower stems?! They came out perfect!

  5. Oh that reminds me I have a couple of Magnolia stamps but since joining SU I never seem to use anything else!!! I must be very boring these days lol x

  6. this is just so stinkin cute! she is so pretty! great card

  7. I love the little flowers, so very cute. I chose to love today when it wasn't what I wanted to do.

  8. Tracy,
    Great card, I love how you did it. That little image is just to cute
    Hugs, Stacy

  9. You did an awesome job with only a few supplies! The coloring matches so good too! I would have thought you stamped those stems. I hope Kristy was okay going back to school :)

  10. Oh, wanted to say, I envy those people who clean out their rooms and get rid of everything just to scrap with the basics. That's what your challenge reminded me of. BUT, I could never do that. Just as soon ai would throw something out, I know I would need it for a card or something :)

  11. Lovely card! Love the colours! So perfect for the fall mood we´re going into here in Sweden :)

    Have a great day!

  12. Awesome cad the image is so sweet and your colouring is fabulous!!

  13. Beautiful card, Tracy! I thought you didn't like the color orange?!

  14. Love the card Tracy.. It's adorable. Thanks for sharing.

  15. I love, love, love your cards! Super cute, as always :0) Hugs!

  16. It turned out beautiful Tracy! I love the white dots that you added after the fact! My oldest got sent home twice in a week from school because he hates to miss (last year). What he fails to realize is that getting sent home gives a 24 hr manditory stay home and he misses more...or maybe that is the plan! LOL! -Amanda

  17. Supre cute! I love how you have her sitting on the edge of the sentiment!

  18. Hi Tracy
    A superb creation with such beautiful detail to say you had limited stash.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x

  19. You do pretty darn good with less!! It definitely made you be more creative with drawing your own flower stems! Way too cute!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
