My Precious. You have to say that like Gollum, and rub your hands together. No, I didn't see the Lord of the Rings movies or The Hobbit, but I did read them back when I was a pup. Actually, one year when I was away at Girl Scout camp, one of the counselors read to us from The Hobbit as we sat around the campfire at night, and she sounded totally like Gollum does in the movie. She was way ahead of her time.
ANYway, welcome to another Shopping Our Stash challenge! This week we ask you to use something you've been hoarding with no plans to ever use it. Ever, as in they'll have to pry it from your cold, dead hands. That ever. Come on, you know you have something you won't ever touch. Pretty paper? Special embellishment? A piece of delicate ribbon? Yeah, THAT.
In my world, where much is hoarded, I recently did a major paper purge and cleared out most of my 12x12 patterned papers. In the process I re-discovered a cache of fabric papers, and those went right into the KEEP THIS UNTIL YOU DIE pile. I have two pieces each of two of the patterns, and three of another, so that last one was sacrificed for the challenge.
Here's the card I made:
Here's a close-up of the paper:
Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash and find that special something that you've decided to never use, then use it. You're allowed to weep a bit; that's actually to be expected. Then finish your project and come back to Shopping Our Stash to link us up so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
