Shopping Our Stash #115

Hello again dear friends!  Thanks for stopping by today.  It's Tuesday and that means its time for another challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  This week we would like to see you use your oldest hardware (ribbon slides, brads, eyelets, metal frames, etc.).

First off, for my card I chose a super cute image from There She Goes.  (Unfortunately I'm not seeing it in the shop.  I've had it quite a while and I fear it may have been retired.)
 Isn't she adorable?  I stamped her on Kraft card stock and colored her with my Prismacolor pencils.
The DP and strips of card stock are all from my stash.  The cute sentiment came in the set of stamps.  The brads are my oldest hardware that I pulled out for this challenge (I used 16 of them on this card!!).  I embossed the card stock with circles.
 This great DP was also in my stash.  I followed the same sketch for my writing panel and added the row of beakers (aren't they cute??).  I also added the small beaker by itself to the other side.

So, there you have it!  I'm sure you already know what your oldest hardware is so dig it out and join us for our great challenge this week!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs
