Show me your hoarded itmes!


Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - use a hoarded item on your project.  That means that super cute doo-dad or super yummy paper or that fabulous button that you just have one of.  Whatever you are hoarding it, we are encouraging you to get it out and use it! 

We are being sponsored this week by CC Designs! 
The Design Team would like to thank CC Designs for proving us with these cute images.  I chose to use *New C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Watermelon Abigail Rubber Stamp, be sure to check out all the CC Designs Available at the Loves Rubberstamps Store as well.
I inked her up in Memento Tuxedo Black on to X-Press It Copic Paper and used my Copic Markers to color her up. The corner piece is a MFT Die-namic called Photo Corners
The papers are an old doodlebug design.  My Sister bought me a kit with the papers, ribbon and brads when I first started venturing away from S.U. and checking out other brands, a longggg time ago, lol.   I saved it for when I was "good enough" to use them because I didn't want to waste them.  Now I have used these not that long ago, but this is only the second time I have used it, lol.  I love the colors and the sweet strawberries and the glittery polka dots, super matchy cute as can be brads and the super matchy ribbon, lol.   So there, I used my hoarded items, lol. 
Actually this challenge was quite difficult for me because I have so many hoarded items, lol.  And I still didn't want to give most of them up, lol.   I would venture to say that half the fun of doing this is buying the stamps, dies, paper, ribbon, buttons, brads, etc.  I love shopping for them and finding new stuff just as much as I like using it, lol.  I am hopeless!  I will continue to pull out my hoarded items, and use them!  lol. 
I cannot wait to see your entrees and please do tell what items you hoarded and used on them, Inquiring Minds want to know!
I am also entering in the CC Designs current monthly challenge, Red Hot.
