Shopping our Stash #103 - It's Our Anniversary!


Two years of challenges at Shopping our Stash - woohoo! And we have a few options for the challenge this week:

*Make an anniversary card
*Make a graduation card
*Use items that you have had for more than 2 years. 
(Make sure to tell us what they are!)

I ended up combining the graduation & 2 year challenges - this little chickie stamp has been a favourite of mine for years, and the floral paper & sticker sentiment have been around.....sheesh. I can't even guess. The yellow fun flock is at least 3 years old. Good thing that stuff doesn't go bad :)


Supplies: Stampendous grad chick stamp; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; classic small circle Nesties; Stampendous Yellow Fun Flock; floral paper, sticker, ribbon, twine all unknown from stash; Spectrum Noir & Sharpie markers

I had that thin little strip of black card stock laying on my desk, already with Scor-Tape on the back of it, and it worked perfectly to give the top a border. 


Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday,June 3rd - hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


And now I'm off for a full day of doctor & dentist appointments. Between 3 of us there are 4 appointments - and 3 of them are between 8:30 and 9 AM, on opposite sides of town. This is why husbands shouldn't be allowed to book follow-up appointments ;)
xoxo,
Jessi

Super cute card! I love it as a grad card, a little different then the typical grad card!!!

Laura said...

So cute! I love how you've ruffled the ribbon at the bottom!

Emily Keaton said...

You have been so busy, Jessi! I can't keep up. The end of May and June are always so busy for us, and that doesn't leave much time for the "me" stuff I'd like to do. Can you relate?

LOVE this adorable grad card! That chickie is the sweetest. Good luck with all of the appointments!

Stacy said...

Wow, you had a busy day, Jessi! I think your card is seriously so cute! I love the background paper and the yellow twine and the ribbon look so cool together! Great work!

That little chick is adorable and I love what you've done with the colours - the yellow really pops.

I think about everything I own is over 2 years. So would have been easy peasy!

This is just darling. What a cute chickie!
