Note Cards of the Stashbusting Variety

I untangled most of the ric rac from the other day. While I was doing so I decided the first project I would use it for would be note cards.

I'm not just a fabric hoarder, I have quite a collection of pretty scrapbooking papers too. At one point I was kind of "into" scrapbooking but that interest didn't last long. I have several unfinished scrapbooks to prove it.

The past two evenings I've been working on note cards. I always forget just how time consuming they are! 18 cards took almost two entire evenings to complete, there are just so many steps involved and I tend to get sidetracked while working on them.

Again, another project that really barely touched the stash but every little bit counts!

The true test of my dedication to the Use What You Have Challenge will happen tomorrow morning. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go garage saling. I will TRY to be good. With my luck I'll find a ton of great fabric tomorrow and won't be able to buy it.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Karyn, those cards are super cute, even if they did take a long time. You'll put a smile on someone's face when you mail one of those out!

Love the cards. The rickrack adds great detail.

That bird paper is hysterical. It reminds me of the Partrige Family!

I love those cards! (Especially the first ones:) Definitely a great way to use the ric-rac.

I think I am going to go garage saling tomorrow morning too. Maybe we should email each other afterwards to make sure neither of us buys fabric! :)

The best thing about my weekly market is that I can't go garage saling any more. At least, I think that is a good thing! LOL Love your new cards. :) Stay strong and remember The Challenge when you're out there.
