Shopping our Stash #179 - Free is GOOD!


Free is good. I think we can accept that as a universal truth! And this week at Shopping our Stash, we want you to play with your free goodies - blog candy? generous friends? prizes? So long as it was free, make something with it & let us know how/where you scored your free stuff :) 

In my case, I used goodies I've received from several friends - the cupcake paper, sparkly number Thickers, die cut heart, and sequins were all gifted to me!


Supplies: heart/flower die cut from MAMBI; AC Thickers letters & numbers; classic small circle Nesties; shrink plastic; sequins and assorted confetti

Not everything on your project needs to be something that was free -  so join us in the next TWO WEEKS, before Monday, December 8th (cue panicked breathing)

Yes, free is always good - and looks like you got a bunch of free goodies! Love this card and it's perfect for a young girl. I'm going to have to remember this one when it's time again to make a birthday card for one of the granddaughters! Very cute.

Free is good but you have to admit that sometimes it makes you suspicious..... free gynecological exams from a dude in a storage locker, probably not so good.

Great sparkly and happy card.
