Less is More...Don't scrap it!

Happy Sunday Morning..
Hope yours is far mine is.
Although I do have a few dilemmas with my cardmaking today...
I'm a very organised kind of gal...and a bit of a perfectionist and sometimes crafting pushes the limits...
My craft room for example starts off nice and tidy and then turns chaotic and messy quite quickly.
It becomes the dumping ground for all the things that the family don't know what to do with..sports bags, shopping bags and this old tv turned up on my sofa from DD2 bedroom, so it's now on my desk cos it still works and I can't just get rid of it!
This now follows into my I am trying to have more CAS style but also love using up all my stash!
The Less is More challenge this week is to use your SCRAPS!

How many bags, boxes of those do we all have?
I have quite a few and I must say I do love using them...
So from out of some of this lot I decided to start on an Easter/Spring card...

and it turned out quite pretty....
I used 2 flower punches and an egg punch and cut slithers of green card for stems.

 I even used a scrap that had little bird/chicks on and cut them out...(not so simple...bit fiddley)

 So it did start out as Less is more...but I had to stop myself as I could have added more....
I do hope the Lovely Limettes think this still qualifies!

Allsorts Challenge Blog have an Anything that maybe the real mantra for the crafting day....
Thanks for stopping by...TTFN...xxxxx
