Leftovers anyone?

For those of you who know me you know I HATE to make the same card more than once.  It actually take less time for me to create a brand new design than to re-make a card I already made!  So weird.  So I have a bunch of left overs from my last all occasions class and thought I would just play around and use the pieces for different cards--I do this a lot.  Here is the original card that I was using the pieces from....






And here are the three cards I made from stuff sitting around me on my table and the pieces from this card...The second card uses the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary.



Now this I find fun!  Not just re-making them over and over!  Which do you like best?  I am not sure myself--keep changing my mind. 

Happy Friday!
Mary Jo

Wow! Great cards, Mary Jo!! Great ideas for just about anyone you might send a card to! The colors are wonderful! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

Hey MJ, all your cards are great. I love the BLUE with all those other colors! I think my favorite is the "Happy Birthday" leaves card. But I'd take any one of them, the first two are definitely manly man cards of which I have few. Excellent work!

Fantastic cards Mary Jo and to think they all came from leftovers. You are very creative.

What a beautiful collection of cards! I love taking pieces from one project and see what else you can do with it! Thanks for joining us this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

Wonderful way to use up those different pieces on different cards! Great cards! Thanks for playing along with us this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

Although they are all beautiful, I might be just a little biased (!) in liking the Connie & Mary card the best! Love the colors and how you stamped the sentiment repeatedly for the background--clever! Thanks for playing along with us at CCMC this week!
