Gathering roses!

Afternoon everyone from a very wet, windy East least now
most of the snow has gone! It's still oh, so cold though so I've still got an
excuse to stay in & craft lol! So today's card is again using up odd
bits & pieces & real old stash......Oh, I'm ploughing through
it all and sticking to my "no spend" ban......roll on April when I can
 spend again! I decorated the inside on this one too!
Thanks for calling today & for any comments you might leave!
See you soon!

  9. This is such a sweet card. Love the bright take on the colours with that adorable image.
    Spending freezes are easier to handle when you have pretty papers like this one, in your stash! teehee The ribbon is fabulous with your paper choices and the colouring looks fab too!

    I think there are many of us on spending hiatus! There are threads on all the scrapbook boards of people giving each other moral support for using up their stash!
    I am on a use my stash commitment too. So far it has been fun to shop my cupboards. Just have to get something finished! Finally finished the mammoth task of reorganizing my room so I am hoping that helps to recharge my mojo!
    I still have the storage closet under the stairs to do but it is a job that requires DH to relocate his stuff so I can organize mine...that might take a while!!! teeeheeee Nothing I use daily in there...thank goodness...

  10. Jo this is beautiful! Lovely bow and the flowers balance it just right. Love the colors and the image which is so nicely colored! Thank you for playing in our neighborhood at 613 Avenue Create!
