hi...

Hello!

Happy New Years Eve!

Have big plans? I gotta work and it might be late...sigh...oh well, I'm thankful that I have a job{...that supports my hobby!}. Once I get home the kids and I have plans to eat pizza & junk food and watch movies:)

Today's my day on the 365 Cards blog and the challenge is:


Dig into that stash and find something that you have never used but can't seem to get rid of. Now is the time to use it!!

Hmmm....I think that translates to de-hoard...and boy, do I hoard.

Can you guess what I de-hoarded?

Yup, that white label plate...It's actually an American Crafts foam piece:

I found them at Big Lots...I think I thought they were felt and then found out they were foam...they've actually been sitting on my desktop for a couple of months and I cracked them open for this challenge...thanks Pam!!!!

I teamed it up with fun American Crafts paper, ZVA bling and MM stickers...super easy smeasy...finished it off with some white stitching...what would I do without my Janome?

So come on ladies...what can YOU de-hoard?

is there a SIZE LIMIT on these cards??! cause if we're meant to de-hoard EVERYTHING in one card...i miiiiiiiiiiiiiight need a slightly bigger envelope! :)

i ♥love♥ this card...its' so quintessentially ~amy~...bright, graphic, somewhat minimalist yet a tad funky, with just that little bit o'bling. supa-kewl way to end the cardmakin' year!!! ♥

(ps: who knew BIG LOTS would have crafty schtuffs?? and suddenly they *INTEREST* me...)

Carly said...

Beautiful CAS card! Lovin' that bling! And so cute that you hoard those foamie pieces. I'm not a hoarder at all, I am the opposite, always trying to race through my stash as fast as I can so I can justify buying more!!

cnelson said...

love this! and YES, I definitely need to dehoard.
