Black and White Swap

Yesterday, time was well spent cleaning and re organizing my stamp room.  It is still nowhere near where I wish it were, but at least I can get to the stamp table, now.   I promised myself that at 4pm, whether or not I was done, I would make a card for a Black and White swap I am in.   I also challenged myself to use papers from my scrap piles....which I now have under my desk so that they are easier to get to.  Oh my gosh, I have three Sterilite boxes full of scraps.  (I am not mentioning the huge tote out in the garage full of scraps....no won't mention that)

Anyway, here is what I came up with.  The card/background was already done (who knows how long it's been in there) and all I needed to do was just add a stamped image and embellishments.

I placed my scraps under my desk as a reminder to USE them.   When they are stuck away in a closet, I forget about them.  I am also thinking about making one day a week as SCRAP day.  I will ONLY make cards using the scraps from those boxes.   

Do you make use of your scraps?  Or do you just toss them?  Do you have a Scrap day set aside?  Inquiring minds wanna know ;-)

Have a great day!!!

P.S. If anyone can tell me HOW to remove that dang box around my signature, I would be forever grateful!!
