What's in your closet?

This is Gina's challenge this week...go through your closet - see what treasure you find! Well, I did that...not really thinking I was going to find anything that I didnt know was in there.   WRONG! I moved a small box of old inks (note to self: throw away) and there was my "recipe album" FULL of Cuttlebug cutting dies!!! I am embarrased to say I havent even given them a second thought - until I spied this album. The butterfly on my card was done with one of the cutting dies.
Now it really is official - I have too much "stuff"...pretty bad when you don't even remember owning them until you find them!!!

 
I used the "shaving cream" technique for the background. Really love it IRL so kept this card very simple.

here's a picture of the album...see what I mean - I'm not talking about 1 or 2...how could I forget all of these?
thinkin I will just chalk it up to old age...sounds better than "greedy"  LOL

have a wonderful Sunday,

Hi Linda,
The results of this shaving effect is wonderful. The butterfly is gorgeous - how could you forget that you had so many goodies? I look forward to seeing what else you produce with these rediscovered items.
Hugs,

Vicki said...

Oh, Linda, this sounds so familiar! Mine is mostly items I stuck back to alter! My "someday" stash! This card is gorgeous! Love that technique and the colors you used! Blessings to you!

Good Morning Linda :) I can totally relate to you - as I am cleaning and packing my stamp room for the move, I am finding too many things that I have forgotten about. Maybe we should make it a point to venture back into the closet more often? Your card is stunning and so glad you found your cutting dies :) Have a beautiful Sunday!

Gina said...

That's funny, I can't believe you forgot you had that many. I do have to admit that I have done the same thing before. At least you didn't forget you had them and then bought them again! Great, I really love that background, great colors.

Patti said...

Isn't it fun to find lost treasures? Love your card... gorgeous as usual! Off to paint have a great day!

Betty Benton said...

Your card is fantabulous!! Aren't you glad that Gina K. sent you to the closet!! I was just talking to DH yesterday about the fact that my "rememberer" is not working as well as it used to!!

Lori said...

What a find!!! How cool is that? Your shaving cream bg came out beautifully, all the right swirls. Can't wait to see what other dies you found.

Sara said...

Very pretty Linda, love the dp!

Cindy said...

Linda, love the shaving cream technique. Yours turned out so nice. Love what you did with it as it goes so perfect with the butterfly die.

Vicki Dutcher said...

Linda- you are to busy (never to old)...forgetting your dies! LOL - I don't know, should the industry slow down making all the goodies......NOPE! Love your card - you had great success with the shaving technique!!

Mary G. said...

I know where you're coming from! ;) I'm afraid when I move my stamp room downstairs from upstairs, I'll find all sorts of things I "didn't know I had"!

Beautiful card! I love how your shaving cream b/g came out!!!

Annmaree said...

Deanna said...

Beautiful card. You're right, it's best simple. That background really makes it.

Brenda said...

Wonderful card Linda, I love the shaving cream background. How fun to find some crafty things you forgot you had, maybe I should tackle my closet. On second thought maybe not it is a mess!

Carrie said...

Wow that is a beautiful background, love your card. Don't you love it when you find stuff you already own lol...like finding lost treasure.
