Birthday Card ~ Peachy Pumpkins

Time for a little crafter HONESTY...
I am a craft supply addict.
When I sat down to create cards for today I looked around my crafting space and saw TONS of crafting goodies I just HAD to have.
Now for the honesty part I have NEVER used most of the supplies I own.
{lowers my head in shame}
My goal this weekend is to use as many unused supplies as possible.

For my card I pulled out these lonely supplies.

Cricut cartridges yet to open & My Creative Time and Peachy Keen goodies.
*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in. embossed with the Cuttlebug Wicker Weave folder.
*Background embossed using the cloud folder from the Cuttlebug Skyward Set.
*Pumpkins cut using the Scallop Stitched Circle Die from My Creative Time
*Sentiment from the All Around Birthday Time Stamp Set from My Creative Time
*Pumpkin faces from the Peachy Keen Pumpkin Faces stamps set.
*Leaves, bat and moon cut using the Cuttlebug Halloween Cut and Emboss set.
*Vines cut at 2 in. using the Cricut Holiday Cakes cartridge.
*Stazon Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
May your day always be filled with love.

  27. Thanks for coming and leaving a little bloggy love. I appreciate each and every comment.
    Crafty hugs,

  28. How delightfully honest of you to admit that you have an addiction. I think the majority of us do. Although, I think my condition has gone from more of an addiction to an obsession as everything I do for card making and all the different blogs I'm involved in has become something of a full time job! It is sad that when we go looking through our stuff we realize how much we have, and how much we have never even used BUT WE NEED IT when we see it in the stores! I am glad that you found some of your supplies that obviously needed a little extra love and attention when creating this awfully cute Hallowe'en card.

    Thank you so much for joining this month on the Path of Positivity. I'm so glad that you found my challenge and I hope that I will see more of your beautiful creations in the future.

    May you always have the courage to be honest with yourself and others!

    Thank you for sharing with us at our PoP Honesty Challenge.
