Challenges everywhere!

Another day with 2 posts...what the heck? I've been making all sorts of things inspired by various challenges, and it seems like for once I'm going to actually get the darn things posted & shared before deadlines. (Don't expect this in the future, folks, since you KNOW it won't be a regular thing! lol) This particular challenge is one I plan to continue checking in with: Shopping Our Stash. This week's challenge, #27, is to create a winter or Christmas related project.
Supplies: stamp from CC Designs;
blue paper from Basic Grey "Nordic Holiday;"
snowflake buttons from Dress it Up!

So for once my supply list is pretty short. Why? Because some of these things have been in my stash for so long, I have no clue where they came from. Mistletoe Fairy here was stamped out & coloured last year, I presume with reinkers. I think. Her boots & eyes have Dimensional Magic on them for shine. The chipboard is some that I've had for years. The blue glitter on her hair & wings is the very last dribble of glitter in some ultra-fine multi-pack I've had since before I started making cards - I was thrilled that there was exactly enough to cover the parts I wanted, and the teensy bit extra went in the trash with no guilt :)
I bought the snowflake buttons in bulk about 3 years ago, and I have enough left that I probably won't use them all up this year either. The pink glitter paper...who knows where THAT came from? See, this challenge has been to my craft area, and I need the kick to use up some of my perfectly awesome older supplies!
So, go look. Check out the awesome entries - maybe someone else has the same supplies in their stash?

That is one sassy little fairy! Love the blue sparkly hair and the pearls! Don't make too many cards like this though - you might run out of stash!! ;)
