for a dear friend...

Happy Friday!!!!

...gotta love the 4 day work week...

I constantly amaze myself...not in the "I'm spectacular" kind of amazing...but in the OMG, how much stuff can a girl have?

I recently 'found' my Echo Park Wintertime Collection...Hunter Renz's birthday card was made with it....the paper was still out on my desk so I made another card with it:)

I KNOW that I'm not alone in that I buy stuff and can't seem to use it because, well, it's so pretty:)  Take those Jenni Bowlin butterflies...I have several sets of them and I'm finally using the red collection.  The sentiment?  It's from Memory Box and to be honest, it had never been inked up and I can't remember when I bought it:)  **sigh**  PLEASE don't tell me I'm the only one that does this?  I've been on kind of a spending freeze because I have so much stuff...so I'm in the "using what I got" mode.


What's that?  I know...there isn't any stitching on this card:)

I love CASE Study

I was inspired by the newest muse over at CASE Study:  Amy Sheffer


I sat and looked at her card for awhile...I'm amazed at all her lovely details....she consistently creates gorgeous projects...such a fab inspiration!

Today the is the new Flashback Friday Challenge!!!!

  8. Nope you aren't the only one. Sometimes I wish we had enough money to put an addition on our house. No, not for the need of a second bathroom, but for a need of a large bright crafty area for me and my stuff! Your card is lovely. Love the big blue bow.

  29. Those butterflies are great! Use 'em up ;>)
    You are not the only one with tons of stuff. We all see potential in everything and in my case I just don't have the time to make everything! Yes, I need to go on a spending freeze. It has been a little too easy to tack on fun stuff for me as I shop for others!!!

  30. Are those jenni bowlin butterflies from a punch or die cut? or are they already made? I've seen them all over the place and didn't know they were jb. anyway, great card and great colors!

  32. Sometimes I think I should just frame my stash and at least be able to look at it since I can't bear to use it! :)

    Love those butterflies and, even if you didn't do it, there's stitching on the ribbon!
