My friend Tomi ann from the cricut site has a rummage challenge going on her blog and you had to dig deep into your stash for something you havn't used in a while ! well let me tell you i have a drawer full of papers and scraps some yes i like but there is a lot that i so forgot i had and wonder why i ever bought such ugly paper lol ! Anyhow to make it fair i asked my dd to put her hand in and pull something out and she picked out this salmony ochre coloured paper with butterflies on ! I can't even remember buying this paper and on the back it had a date psx 2002 .Thank goodness she didn't pick out the black and orange diamonds yuk ! well stuck to this paper was some greyish coloured cardstock so my dd said i had to use both mmm !!
I thought what the heck why not ! then i looked at my carts and saw my stamped cart, have i even used that cart i thought well actually no i havn't and i've only had it nearly a year lol ! so i used the stamped cart for the hello using the grey cardstock and i also used my teardrop cart for the butterflies again a cart i have hardly used also using the grey cardstock. well bland was not the word ! i got out my Tim holtz distress inks and coloured the grey card beyond recognition lol ! I then used my new favourite product glossy accents oh yes and some stickles black and yellow !! a simple bow from my ribbon stash and now i actually think i like this card. Thanks Tomi Ann for making me use some of my stash !! don't forget to check out her blog !
