Just Wordz card / Using up the scraps Project # 6

Hello Crafters,
I recently purchased a set of Just Wordz stamps. I thought they were the neatest idea. There are so many times when I know exactly what I want to use as a sentiment but can not find a stamp to match it. With this stamp set you can make your own! It comes with 69 words that you can mix and match to your hearts content! One thing I did learn on this first card is that when Kim says that her stamps are perfectly spaced to leave just the right amount of space between each her! I felt the need to space them and well it turned out to be a huge gap. Teachers are the worst listeners sometimes lol...I think we just want to make the mistake for ourselves so we never have to question it again :)

The card is a special one. My mom has had the same Milkman for 20 years. However, since my 6'3" ex-football player brother moved out she has noticed that she no longer needs liters upon liters of milk lol. So she has decided to say goodbye to the faithful milkman and just pick up what she needs at the store from now on. She asked me to make her a cute card that she could give to him for all his wonderful years of service. Below is what I came up with. I know it looks a bit kiddish but this man is always smiling and such a friendly guy I think he will love it!

Oh, and yup, again all scraps. The technique today...remember your Cricut loves scraps, just make sure your mat is good and sticky for those really small pieces. I remember when I first got my Cricut and thought I had to use a full 12 x 12 piece for each cut. Thank goodness I watched Robyn's (The Pink Stamper) videos and she set me straight. If you are new to Cricut and want to learn about cutting smaller pieces I highly recommend you pop over to her site and start watching her Cricut videos from the beginning. You will be glad you did!

Finally, I am going to link this card to the Create a Critter series that Stacy has going on over on her blog Love that bug.

Long winded today :)

Such a cute card. This is perfect for a milk man.
I didn't know they even had milkmen any more.
