Time to use the 'Stash' - we all know we have one!

The time has arrived...  My long time 'cyber' friend, Gloria Stengel, has started a new Challenge Blog.  She is encouraging us all to stop hoarding, and start creating.  You can read all about it here:  Craft Hoarder's Anonymous Challenge.

Valentine's Day, and my wonderful husband were my inspiration.  The challenge this week is to create something that shows our 'style'.  My style is such a variety, it's hard to pick just one - so I blended a few styles.  I love to layer, I love flowers, and I love Tim Holtz everything!  Oh,  and dies...I'm somewhat addicted.

I hope you enjoy my entry this week.  I'd love to hear your comments.

Supplies used:
Paper:  Recollections Valentine's Day Love, Heritage Black (Worldwin Papers), Blush Blossom (Stampin' up)
Ribbon:  Really Reasonable Ribbon, January monthly collection
Stamps:  Penny Black, Stampin' up
Diecuts:  Tim Holtz Sizzix Framelits Framed Silhouettes, Cottage Cutz Tea Time Doily, Spellbinder Nestabilities Classic Squares, and Lacy Squares, Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals
Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Vintage Photo, Stazon Black
Etc:  Tim Holtz Chit Chat Seasonal Stickers, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher

  12. Lovely card!! The flowers are so pretty and I love that banner. Thank you for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  13. I'm so glad to hear your style is varied as mine is too and I never know whether or not I should "focus," but I love trying all things out. I love your combination of patterns on your card and the detail of the little turned over corner. I'm intrigued to know where the words came from as they are fabulous. I shall look out for you over at Sunday Stampers and Craft Hoarders.

    1. The I Love you is from Penny Black, and I believe the hugs and kisses is either from a very very old stampin up set, or Copper Leaf Creations. The words on the side are from Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.

  14. So pretty, love your style!! Thanks for joining in on the challenge!!
