If you say, "Oh, no! I never do this!" what in the heck are you doing here? Go away and don't come back until you spend several hundred dollars on crap you will never use. Then, the rest of us will happily be your friends. Because you will be one of us.
I found these hot pink gemstone flowers in my tin of pink bling a few days ago and thought, "Huh, why did I buy these?" Instead of putting them back, I decided to USE THEM ALL UP! AT ONE TIME!
Are you shocked? I sure was. I feel like such a radical. Here are the happy results.
This sentiment always appealed to me as a military spouse who lived in nine states in 17 years. Bloom where you're planted, indeed.
Yes, I know this is essentially the same card as the Bloom card, but hey, it's pretty, don't you think?
Awwww. Look at all that white space.
I blinged (or blang) seven times on one card. Is that legal? It's more fun if it isn't.
The stamps are both from Papertrey: Turning a New Leaf and Spiral Bouquet. The sentiments in Spiral Bouquet are large and complement Turning a New Leaf beautifully, don't you think? The ink is Brilliance Iridescent Lime, which is so shimmery, and Palette Noir, which is so, um, noir and makes a nice contrast to the perky colors of the leaves and gemstones.
So there. We CAN use our stash, use it all up, and feel good about it at the same time. I challenge you to go forth and use something that's been hanging out in your stash for a while. Use it all up. And then tell us about it. Because the rest of us are nosey nellies and we want to see you break the law of hoarding.
Trust me. It's fun.
