MCT ~ Thrifty Thursday

Good morning! I know long time no see ~ right? I am so sorry I have been a tad MIA STILL! Life just keeps getting in the way! We finally  (fingers crossed) are over the nasty stomach bug and now I am playing catch up with work and what seems to be a huge mountain of stuff neglected around here! Hopefully starting next week I will be back blog stalking and seeing all your amazing creations!
I would also like to say how sad I am for all those affected my this horrific tornado. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Well today is "Thrifty Thursday" over at My Creative Time. I am so excited to participate today because its all about scraps! If you are anything like me, I save every little piece of paper! I will not share with you the amount of scraps I have but lets just say I have a ton! LOL!
For todays' card I not only wanted to use scraps but to show you again how versatile Emma's products are! Of course when I first receive any MCT dies I start by die cutting in different colors and patterned papers! Maybe that is why I have so many scraps! LOL! Any way, after looking at them for awhile, I start envisioning them as other things too! I haven't done this in awhile because of how busy I have been but this one didn't take me long at all to see! I used the "Stitched "Capture Frame w/ Arrow" for my actual window. The wrappers from the "Treat Slide Box" ( PRE~ORDER item) for my flower box. Can you guess what die I used for my leaves??? I used the cloth part from the "Stitched Chunky Jar Dies".  I think it turned out pretty cute! I will list the rest of my materials below.
Head on over to My Creative Time and see what the rest of  the design team has created for you!
