Brads Galore!!!


So you know that I'm a hoarder, right?? I said hoar-DER!! Sheesh, clean yer ears out!! Yes, I buy all these beautiful, yummy, sparkly things with the intentions of using them on my very next project....but then I don't. Why? Because if I use them, then I won't have them anymore. Makes total sense, right? Okay, not so much, but you know where I'm coming from, don't you?? Please tell me you do.

This week's challenge at the ATS Blog this week is to use brads. Okay, the challenge was actually to use as many brads as you can, but I say, that's just madness!! It was painful enough for me just to use these five brads of shimmery goodness! Why? Because I only have ONE package of each!!! That's why!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyhooooo! The cardstock is Pink Pirouette and some Soft Sky. Of course I coloured it with my Copic markers...what else? And everything else is by Imaginisce....the patterned paper, the flowers and those yummalicious brads!! Oh and I also used some Stardust Stickles on her wings.




The sketch that I used for this little card is one that was posted on Ana Wolfhart's blog for a Taylored Expressions sketch challenge! I turned it on it's side and used it this way instead. You know, I've really got to start printing out all these great sketches I find because I often find one and then can't remember where I saw it. Maybe I'll alter a little book or something to put them all in. Hmmm. Yet another job to do! *sigh*

Okey doke. Well, that's my card and my musing for the day. Did I mention that it was supposed to be my day off, but I have to go in for a meeting?? Did I mention that?? Can ya tell I'm not impressed?? Alright. Just checkin'!

Hope you have a super stamp-filled day.

I SO know the feeling of not wanting to cut in that new paper because then its not whole anymore. And not wanting to use those flowers because then they are...well...used!
Lovely card though, well worth using them!
Good luck with your meeting :-)

Great card, and I too am a huge hoar-der. I still have glitter glue that was purchased at least 20 years ago but heaven help me if I use them all and can't replace them? Mind you I also have lots of new Stickles which I use constantly. Is there any sense to this madness?
