Using My Stash

This could be a challenge, use things you haven't used is awhile. Funny how we just have to have it, use it for a little while until the next just gotta have thing comes around, well yesterday I dug out some things I haven't used in awhile and came up with this. Even the card stock was in the basket, I had to emboss another small piece cause 2 were already cut and embossed, I cut the swirls and leaves out using Sizzex dies, the flowers I made using both Martha Stewart and Stampin Up punches, even the micro beads I have had for a long time, I did add some stickle. Then sentiment is Heartfelt Creation 3311 Hope In The Lord which I cut out and matted with Spellbinders petite ovals. I saw a card like this over at SCS awhile back, but can't remember whose it was, could be yours???? Anyway, I liked it and that's where the layout came from. Michelle is coming up today to help take Christmas down and put away until next year, so I'll be busy. Yall have a blessed day and I'll catch up with ya later!!!!!

Yep, we all have that stash of "just have to have it's"! This is sooo lovely! I love the boy's waiting for Bill! Too cute!

Stash? Me? You betcha! Good for you, using something that you already have! I'm getting much better at that. Your card is beautiful, Olga, and those boys are just so sweet! Your house and mine could be twins - each time I see one of your photos, it looks like home! Hugs...

Another beauty! You rock flowers and flourishes! Love the pic of the boys -- are they patiently waiting or do I hear a whine or two???

Love all of the embossing, great design.
Happy New Year, I should be cleaning up, but not going to. Tell Michelle hello for me. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
hugs....

Olga
Loving this card and the fact it is from "the stash" (which we all have lol).
Your furbabies are so adorable. Made me smile. Reminds me of little kids and Christmas morning.
I was wondering what size your card is? If it is A2 I sure wish I had your talent for fitting that all in a small card. :)

Olga,
This is beautiful. I love all the swirls and flowers. Your header picture is funny, mine would have a pic of hubby's game controller glued to his hand and puppies sitting at his feet with leashes in their teeth. LOL

Kathy and Lucky said...

Love the pic of the pups they really want to get behind that door...:) Love the card and the colors, always a masterpiece. We are working on getting everything down and put away as well....why does it take forever putting it away and no time getting out???? Have a great weekend and Happy New Year.

Becky said...

Holey Moley, girl! Your "stash" sure looks better than mine, lol! This is gorgeous....have a great New Year!

Well I'd say you pieced together a beautiful work of art! Have a good time with Michelle!

Lori said...

Wow, it all came together so nicely. Hope you had a nice day taking everything down and spending time with Michelle! I love the new pic and caption of the boys.

Sue said...

Gorgeous. I love this color combo. Happy New Year to you and your family. Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work in 2012!

Rosemary said...

absolutely gorgeous use of scraps, olga!!! wishing you a happy new year!!

Caroline said...

Beautiful card once again!! You never cease to amaze me Olga! That is a great idea... for a challenge to use what you have. Sometimes I tell myself to have on 'blinders' when I go into a craft/stamp store and ONLY get what is on my list... but it never works! haha
