Well today I'm celebrating Birthdays! No, no, no - not mine. Just Birthday's in general. It's just a number and with age comes a wisdom that we need to appreciate. With age comes some really great things - like grandkids! (I have 4!!). And with each Birthday comes cards of course!! Seems like I never have enough Birthday cards - always rummaging through the stash of cards to find one.
This week several challenges had the theme of Birthday cards so of course I had to join right in!!! The stamps are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The papers were just pieces parts from other projects that I can never seem to throw away. Not only am I a paper hoarder of full size sheets - but my pieces/parts stash shows my paper hoarding as well! Oh, and the stamps continue on my quest to ink uninked stamps. The flower one I don't think I have ever inked and I've had it for quite some time! (Yes, I hoard stamps too - LOL!). And then the base of the card was embossed with an embossing folder I don't think I have every used either...but has been in my possession for quite some time. WOW - I didn't realize how many "hoarded items" I used making this card! So here is the final product:
I'm submitting this card for the following challenges:
- Created with Love - Birthday Red and Yellow
- Mojo Monday - Sketch #301
- Use It Tuesday - Birthdays - what was used that was hoarded? Gee - everything!
- Loves Rubberstamps Challenges - use a hoarded item (everything used is a hoarded item - LOL!!)
- Shopping Our Stash - Summer Theme or Summer Colors (everything is from my stash - papers are scraps)
Thanks for stopping by today!! Enjoy this beautiful Wednesday! And here is a challenge for you from me: go to your card stash - you know we all have them - and pick out a card. Then open your address book and the first name you see, send that card to that person! Don't have an address book but use the computer/cell phone for addresses? Well then randomly pick a number - like 32 - and then count through your contacts and when you get to person #32 - get out that pen and stamp and start addressing!
