Shopping Our Stash #120 ~ Kids

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I discovered a new to me challenge this week.  It's Shopping Our Stash or SOS.  It's a weekly challenge focusing on using the supplies you have on hand.  This challenge spoke volumes to me. 

This week's Shopping Our Stash challenge is to make a "kid themed" card.  I made this card with my 15 year old daughter in mind.  Kid, teenager, same thing right?  Well, Katelyn calls everyone "dude", including her father and me.  It drives me crazy...!  So when I came across this little Technique Tuesday set, of course I thought of my her.  That's why the dude is stamped in pink.  She's my girly-girl.

In an effort to shop my stash, I pulled out one of my treasured Martha Stewart die cut doilies.

I used this sketch from Susan Stringfellow.  I thought it was such a fun and playful sketch, perfect for this challenge.

Adding to Simon Say Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
