As you can see by my left side banner, I was recently selected as a winner on the "Use it Tuesday" challenge blog and asked if I would like to play along with the today's posted challenge - For the holidays.
Well OF COURSE I wanted to play along! I'm still making Christmas cards and have come to realize that my stash of Christmas themed supplies is, well, growing rather diminishing. I must confess, when I set about to make this card, I found that I still have Christmas papers in my stash that I bought at LEAST four seasons ago - maybe even five!
Anyways, here's the card I made with a gorgeous collection of papers named "Mistletoe" from Close To My Heart. These are a little more recent - from 2010! I know, I know. I remember loving these papers so much that I had to buy the Level 2 paper pack, the matching Creative Basics set AND the workshop on the go kit. So.....ummmm, yeah, I have a LOT of these papers still in my stash. I think I need to learn that just ONE paper pack goes a long way - never mind THREE!!!
Do you recognize Elf Oliver? Uh, huh. This is another of the images that I coloured up a while back except that I switched up his hair colour for one of our other nephews. I have one more left to go! See, I'm even using up my stash of pre-coloured images!
Now, if you are like me and your stash is growing rather than shrinking, I would encourage you to play along with the Use it Tuesday Challenges. They are on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month and are a great way to tackle your stash!
