Shopping our Stash #250 - Pink (gah!) UFOs

Can you believe it's our 250th challenge at Shopping our Stash? The team decided to host another tribute to Leslie by including one of her favourite things (using up UFOs, those "unfinished objects" we've all got cluttering our desks) and one of her favourite things to hate - PINK (gah!)

I have two UFOs on my project - the pink oval and the mother's day sentiment. That oval has definitely been kicking around for a few months! I decided to also include stitching & buttons on my card because Leslie used to always comment that it would drive her crazy to do it - and I think of her every time I sew on a button frame.

Supplies: Flourishes image; PTI sentiment; Reverse Confetti die & polka dot frame; distress inks for watercolouring; Palette Noir & Memento Gray Flannel inks; Tim Holtz design ruler; embroidery supplies

We love you & we miss you, Leslie. 

Check out what the rest of my awesome teammates made!

C'mon, once in a while you must also think of me when you use all those buttons. :D But yes, there are still so many reminders of Leslie... nicely done one the (gah) pink and UFOs!
