Hoarders are us - Unite!!

Hi all,

Well the title says it all. These cards are made from my scraps & things I've been hoarding. Recently on two different blogs by two wonderfully talented ladies Anne of Gaal Greative & Deborah of Society of Stamp & Scrap-aholics have written about something most of us crafters suffer from..........HOARDING!!! I am so glad that I'm not the only one that suffers this affliction ;).
 

This is a mini card I made with some scraps & some of the endless bling that I've accumalated. I'm hoping to make at least two Christmas cards a month so that by the time October comes I've got a stash to get me started - well that's the plan.
 

This christmas card is made with leftovers from this years cards & some scraps left over from years past. I even got inspired to break out the sewing machine (shock horror !!).
 

This birthday card is all made from scraps, I didn't even have to cut any of the pieces, so it was super quick. I will let you in on a secret - the circle was cut from packaging that the stickers came on & behind the circle is a hole in the green paper. So I was fairly pleased at the way this card turned out.

This card I think is the best of the lot. All the chipboard flowers & butterfly are from the very lovely & talented Lucy. Lucy gave these to me last year & I've been saving them for something special (not sure exactly what) so decided to use them.

Now if you don't already know the very lovely & talented Kathy is having a give away on her blog The Daily Marker. You will be so pleased that you visited her blog. Not only is her give away wonderful but her cards are just beautifully done. I have put a picture of the blog give away on the righthand side under Bug's baby counter. I'm also hoping that if you click on the pic, that will take you directly to Kathy's blog. I'm slowly gettin' 'puter literate ;D. So for now TTFN

Hi, Paula! These are such terrific cards made from hoarded supplies! I know I'm all-to-guilty of forgetting what's in all these containers in my crafty room! Great idea to work on holiday cards a little at a time all year! Good luck! :-)
