I am doing my best to delete my stash. I am getting a bit concerned because I am almost out of white cardstock. I have white parchment and glossy white cardstock left. I like the glossy, but it has a tendency to curl, so I am trying not to use it. To be true to my journey, I may just have to.
I haven't done a card count in a while. When I was done counting, I just couldn't believe it. I've made 84 cards/project since starting this journey on Jan 1, 2012. I have only purchased a small spool of purple ribbon that I bought at a resale shop for cheap. I have won some fun products from A La Card Monkey.
Making these 84 cards (mostly) doesn't even make a dent into my stash by looking at it. I could make 840 projects and still have tons left. I am up for the challenge still. I hope I have encouraged a few more to take the challenge as well.
Ok, back to the card I made for Card Patterns: Sketch 164 challenge. I just had a bit of the flower paper. Enough for two cards. I am saving the other half for my next card....I think. The flower die from Sizzix has three flowers on it. I got this die a couple weeks ago at a Swap Meet in Orange County. What a surprise that trip was. I stamped the bottom flower white a charcoal ink a itty bitty flower. Popdots were used under the top blue flower. The very top flower is pink vellum with a brown button center and a yellow dot. The base paper is some old CTMH stash that I've had since the 90's. I used the pearls and the edge trimmer that I won from A La Card Monkey. This card is full of color and dimensions.
