Hi everyone. Happy New Year! This is the first Corrosive Challenges challenge for 2013. Our challenge is Out with the Old. We are asking you to use up some of your old stash. We are sponsored by Simply B Stamps. I was fortunate enough to have served on the SBS Design Team and I enjoyed working with all of Betty's fabulous images. Betty was very generous and gave each member of the CC team an SBS image. My awesome image is Waitress Betty.
I have been working on cleaning and organizing my studio for several days now. As I was cleaning, I hit the jackpot. I was able to find this amazing designer paper from Oriental Trading I forgot I bought. It has retro kitchen items on it and was part of an entire retro food set. I also found this super cute ribbon and even the blue distress ink I used was in a box of old things I had forgotten about. My stash has grown by leaps and bounds since I started cleaning. I had craft supplies hidden all over the house.
I am going to send this card to my sister Rhonda. She complained that my Christmas card to her was too plain and she hated it. She said it was as if I threw it together at the last minute (which I did). I spent a lot of time coloring this one so I hope she likes it. She is not one to hold back so I will definitely be told if it isn't good enough.
Speaking of sisters, my other sister Robin came over today. She brought her daughter and we played games all day and tried a couple of new crafting techniques. We had a great time. We even spent some time watching others craft on YouTube I plan on doing some more videos and I like to see how others have set up their cameras.
I better get off here. We have a fire going and hubby wants to snuggle and watch TV. Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and see what the rest of the design team has done for your inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by.
