Scrap Our Stash's March challenge is very near and dear to my heart: Spring Cleaning, which means dig long and deep into your stash to find things that need some dusting off and loving. Dig up dusty stamps and love them with some fresh ink. Pull out that pattern paper that's been attracting dust mites - I know we wait for that "perfect" project, but do we really know if we're making that perfect project upfront? Dust off those punches that have been sitting in a bin and give them some punching action.

I'm sure we have certain crafting vices, so this is a good time to 'fess up. Mine is pattern paper. I see some and fall heads over heel over it and often can't help myself from buying it. The key is to really do paper swaps with gals, so if you're interested, drop me an email and we can do a paper swap! :)

Anyways - off to the deets of the card. I needed a good guy card and knew that I was hogging my Archaic paper from Basic Grey for far too long. So I created a "quilt" of pattern paper and laid each panel together. Super easy.

Stamps: (Free Spirit - Sentiments) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Dark Chocolate) Papertrey Ink; (Archaic) Basic Grey
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (3/4" Square Punch) EK Success; (Nestabilities - Label One) Spellbinders

I decided a nice clean window cut, such as Label One or a Circle would be fun. Here are more details on the panels:


Super fun and it makes a teeny weeny dent into my paper hoarding mountain. What are your vices and how do you try to over come them?
