Fun New Challenges!

I just love finding new challenges out here in blogland. Today I came upon Shopping Our Stash.  Yep, just what is sounds like -- using products that have gone unused [or in my words, out of trend].  Today's challenge is to use metal.

I have had these these awesome metal squares forever. I always liked them, but I just haven't used them... until today! :)

I also am also in love with tags on cards.  They make such a fun layout.  I used PTI Tag Sale 1, along with Tag Circles [retired?], and my bg border is Simon Says Stamp Circle Border. The sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping set, Small Fancy Frames 4. Metal pieces? Ha! I have had them to long to know.
I plan on playing in this challenge quite often -- using my current stash.........priceless~ [literally]. :)

Even though I have played in Unscripted Sketches before, I loved the sketch for this week, and wanted to play.

I am kind of staying with the SOS challenge,only this time, I am using some metal dies that haven't seen the light of day in like forever.  I used PTI Banner Border, and MFT Rolled Flower, along with Spellbinders Small Scalloped Circles.  I once again used Inspired By Stamping Small Fancy Labels 4.

That's it for me today.  I need to make some "future cards" that I have been procrastinating on~ my bad.

Thanks for stopping by~

Love B & W card and this one is a beauty. Love the bright coloured dots and rolled flower on the second.

Both of these cards are great Vicki. I'm partial to the black & white. It's so funny, when I see your colorful cards, I love them, then I see a black and white card from you and I love it are very talented!

Both cards are eye candy to me...well done!

Two fabulous projects! I am a sucker for Black on! Such an elegant design, beautifully executed. The Just a Note card is also elegant and beautifully composed. Outstanding color integration and marvelous, clean, design lines! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Shopping Our Stash!
