Hello friends!! It's Tuesday and you know that means another challenge at Shopping Our Stash. We have a fun challenge for you this week! Have you ever bought something "amazing" for you card making only to get it home and wonder "why did I buy this"? And then it sits in your stash forever. Come on! We've all done it! Fess up! Well, we want to see those items on your card today. You loved them at one time (even if it was only for 2 minutes at the store) so they deserve a place on your card right?? lol You can do it!! I have faith in you!
So here's my card. I used a lot of stash this time. My "what was I thinking" item are the flip flop and bikini "buttons". They aren't actually buttons, there's no way to sew them on, but I'm not sure what else to call them. Several years ago I purchased several packages of these things in all different themes. I neatly organized them in a small plastic bin, tucked them in the drawer and left them there to age. I think they are well aged! The papers were all scraps from my stash. Even the white embossed piece was already embossed! The green ribbon is really old but the twine is fairly new but from a friend's stash! The stamp is from PTI and I have never used it.
The inside is very plain for me although I added another "button", this time a beach ball.
Here's another shot. A fun card, but not my usual style. I was going through my cards yesterday, looking for one for my niece and realized I make some pretty great cards sometimes....I need to make more. It's good therapy, right?
Anyway, it's your turn now. Dig into your stash (dig deep if you have to) and join us for this fun challenge this week!
I think that's about it. Thanks for taking a peek!
Blessings & Hugs,
