Yay! It's my turn to host the Limited Supply Challenge! Ready? I'm posting early because I'm up late!
You know you've got them -- old stamps that you just won't get rid of, but you don't use either. How long has it been - 2 months? 6 months? A year? Well, this week I want you to go get them out. And while you are digging, get out some old dp, and some cardstock in colors you don't normally use, too!
My challenge to you is simple: You have to make a card with a things you haven't used in awhile. I don't mean a week or two. I'm talking months. Years, even! The more things you use that you've been neglecting, the more bonus points you get, lol! So try not to bust out the Copics - go for your WWC, or your pencils, or something else that is gathering dust
Here are this week's guidelines, in a nutshell:
Stamps: anything unused (NOT new, it has to be a set you haven't inked up recently) Paper: Something you've been hoarding Ink: any Embellies: Again, try for things you've been hoarding!
Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Oh this is going to be fun. Since I've been unmounting stamps, I've been wanting to use the oldies again. However, I may have to use my Copics because I got rid of my pencils, WWC, and chalks. Thanks for such a fun challenge!
My son was injured in a bicycle accident last Friday and is undergoing his 4th surgery today (prayer please) - he will be in the recovery stages for up to a year and off work. This simple card is a mother's plea to her son!
Yeah!!! Got a little time to play thanks to Fay...no school for the past four days but finally got in some stamping time today! Awesome challenge....makes me want to go back in my room and stir up even more dust!! Here's mine....http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...026035?cat=838
Oh, I like this challenge. I saw a cute card the other day that someone posted in the gallery using SU's A Little Love set. It reminded me that that was one of my first sets and it definitely has not seen ink in a very long time. I will try to challenge my self to use that along with some paper and embellishments I just had to have and are sitting in a drawer. Thanks for hosting and suggesting it.
I just finished a card last night that will work for this!! (just have to wait for the sun to come up a bit more to take a pic!!) Have another card I need to make...I'll have to see if I can do another one!!
What a GREAT challenge!!
