Iced in but in my Hibernating stamp cave

It's icy in Houston, Texas, and we are pretty ignorant of driving in such conditions, so here I am still in my warm pjs and loving having an excuse to just stay in and stamp and create. A real treat for me, although I am retired and do have those opportunities more than many do. In my extra time I went over to Paper Playful to check on the challenges listed over there. I found this one that is a sketch challenge over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge. I loved this sketch because my stamping resolution idea is to deplete my ever-growing design paper scrap pile. So this card was made from scraps from my already cut and left over pieces from previous projects bags. I have about 8 bags I am working through at the moment that are organized by colors (more or less). So, here is my card for the challenge:

I used an old Stampin' Up sentinent stamp, and my Creative Memories heart punches. So, it is nice using old stamps and old tools that haven't been used in awhile. That middle stripe is a solid piece of dp that is already pieced like that.  I did not cut all those little squares. LOL

Here's the sketch pattern:

Hi Liz,
If you are in Houston, we're practically neighbors. We are south off 288 in southern Brazoria Countiy....all that to say: I enjoyed a couple of "school's out weather days" stamping and trying to stay warm. Much as I enjoyed it, I am glad to see the sun. I love the fun patchwork look of your card and how you interpreted the sketch. Thank you for playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

Welcome to AHSC, Liz, so glad you found us! I didn't think about it until you mentioned it but this is a great sketch for putting some of our pretty scraps to use. I love the papers you chose and how the gingham heart ties them all in together. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
