Thoughtful Thursday 0010

Are you a hoarder?  I hate to admit it but I am.  I hoard paper, ribbon and embellishments like I'm a crazy person or something.  Why?  Well, I can't really figure that out.  I mean I buy it to use on cards and scrapbook pages.  So, why don't I?  If you have the answer, will you please enlighten me?!!!

Well, this week's challenge has everything to do with my terrible problem.  I'm going to force myself to use some of that paper I've been saving for whatever reason.  If you are a hoarder, here is the challenge:  use something (paper, ribbon, embellishments - anything that you've been holding onto 'just because').  It can be on a card, scrapbook page, or any altered project!

Now, I haven't made anything yet for this challenge.  I am going to make something from each of my stashes - paper, ribbon and embellishments.  I hope to add at least one of my items by the end of the evening but I wanted to get this post out there so that you could start working on your own personal dilemna!!

Here is a picture of the reason I'm issuing this challenge:














Here is the prize for this week:















Please add your creation by noon Wednesday to be eligible for the prize!



Hope your Thursday is thoughtful one!

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but your room looks just like mine, and me thinks it's going to take more than one challenge card to use up our supplies! Lol.... I'm all over it girlfriend - remind me about next Monday, would you???

oh yeah. i'm sooooooooooo there. i hoard too. and then i wonder why the crafting ladies overseas do such beautiful work. they DON'T hoard. they use TONS of embellishments on just one card. i guess we can learn from them.

My card is posted. I think we all need help in this department. Is there a group therapy for this?? :)
