Snippets and Very Old Stash ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  Following on from yesterdays post I’ve another previously started but until now not finished card to share today and here it is …

A DL card for a change 
The tag can be used  as a book mark 

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #324 Favourite Colour: blue with purple because of Becca!
DRS Designs Rubber Stamps Challenge #187 Left me Hanging: hope this counts!
Papertake Weekly Challenge Spots and Stripes
Polkadoodles Challenge #32 Use Something New: the stamp
Sparkles Monthly Challenge #71 more than one fold
Stamping Sensations Challenge Anything Goes with a Stamp and a Die
Virginia’s View Challenge Embellishments
For some reason I can't add the photograph for Virginia's challenge - it's coming up with a blog error, grr!

With the exception of the flower stamp and the flower die I have no idea if the stash I used is still available to purchase.  The tag, inside the folded over panel, is a snippet from my H2O and stamp experiments.  When we did the re-organisation in January I found this card blank, covered with this DP, no idea when I did that or how long I did it.  I also found a tub of white Tattered Floral die cuts too and I’ve no idea why I cut so many die cuts either!  I must have started a project and then got distracted by something else and never finished that project.  This week I’m planning to get some of the UFO projects finished and I also want to get some of my DT projects created too.  This process happens to me a lot because I have to get a certain project finished that is suddenly urgent.  I would guess that happens to other creative’s too. 

I have candy that is open world wide to new and old Followers.  I would love it if my current Followers were to add their name too, for the post with the link you need to go here.
I’m trying to remember to add in extra time because of how up and down my back is right now, some days I can do a fair bit and other days nothing what so ever.  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x

Isn't it fun to start using up some of your stash. I feel so happy when I'm finally able to stop "hoarding" something. :) These are all so pretty! Purple and teal is my favorite color scheme so you've really hit the nail on the head for me.
