Happy Thursday. I hope you are all having a wonderful week. It's that time once again for Digi Doodle Shop's Thursday Challenge. And this week the Challenge is SCRAP. Being guest designer for the month of July, I've already got my card ready. It was created almost entirely of scrap except for the base card stock. All the designer papers, ribbon, and buttons are scrap, although I've ordered more of the buttons. The Little boy's clothing was paper pieced, and he was colored with Copics. This image was dublicated three times, cut out, debossed, and layered with dimensionals for 3-D effect.

- Hi: It's Merniebug here. Well actually it's Melanie but I answer to a variety of sobriquets. My mother had been reading Gone With The Wind at the time of my birth, thus, I was named Melanie. My friends call me Mel, It was my sister who coined the moniker Mernie when she was too young to pronounce Melanie correctly. It was eventually shortened to Mern. And then later when my nephew came along he called me Melwee because he couldn't pronounce Melanie either. Now my husband of thirty-four years is so confused he just calls me whatever comes to mind first. Actually I was Sweetheart until the day he realized the honeymoon was over. It was my cousin who added the bug to Mernie which is who I've always been to him and who I am on Splitcoast Stampers. So now that we've gotten past the odd name business, who else am I? I'm a child of the King, a wife and a mother to one grown son and five tailwaggin' fur babies. I am a retired interior designer, a rubber stamper, and a wanna be author who is just completing a first novel. I got into scrapping and rubber stamping to fill a creative void after retiring--it's less expensive than redecorating the house every year. LOL
