Thinking of You ... 2



Hello to all my visitors on this gorgeous Friday and finally I have made a card - it's been 2 weeks .
Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)
I definitely wanted to play along at House of Cards and their End of Term Blog Hop...please click to their blog site and play along. I love the inspirational photo; the rustic kind of feel and of course I love flowers. I created the basket with a embossing folder, die cut the daisies, made and painted my chair with balsa wood and mounted my sentiment on cork...the balsa wood and cork are my 'never before used schtuff' for Darnells challenge #1 Anything Goes- who is encouraging one to use up 'schtuff' we have stashed away and forgotten about. I know my pile of paper and cards stock is huge and I have many 'bits' I've bought to use and then put aside...like my cork. I started a few years back with a New Years Resolution to 'stop saving bits for a special occasion card'... get on and use it now.
Hope you've had a great week and looking forward to a special weekend, Thanks for taking a  Robyn
PS My card was a hit...I love it too Top Winner

  2. Goodness, you have such talent, Robyn! If I didn't know better, I'd think you went outside and took a picture of your white-washed fence with a rustic daisy plant hanger on it! (I know it's a chair, but at first glance I thought it was a planter box.)

    It's a great take on the HoC challenge and I so appreciate that you also linked it up to my NBUS Challenge!

    I'm not really encouraging folks not to buy any more schtuff (don't want the lovely stamp companies mad at me!), so much as it's a reminder to occasionally pull out and use that schtuff that's been stuck away and forgotten about! It's been nice to see that I'm not only in doing that and I appreciate your support!

    Have a great day! Hugs, Darnell

  14. Your interpretation of the inspiration photo is spot on Robyn - perfect! I love the textures, the pretty daisies and the rustic feel you added! I really love that you created the chair and basket yourself - we can rely on an abundance of die cuts these days - and it's lovely to see crafty 'made' items!
