Mix It Up!

***This is my 2nd post for the day.  Please click here for my Friends With Flair/Paper Players post!***

I thought I'd have time to post this after I got home from work but I just realised that one of the challenges closes in only 4 hours!  This card is for the Wee Memories Birthdays & Parties challenge and also for the Use It Tuesdays cooking challenge. I love the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird and Garden Variety collections and have been hoarding them for ages now.  I also have a million Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type stickers that I use very sparingly.  I really don't know what I think I'm saving all this stuff for. I'm sure all my stash would be much happier to find itself on a card than collecting dust in the Craft Cave.  Thanks, Use It Tuesday for kicking my butt into gear and getting me to put this stuff to use!  Okay, really gotta dash now - back later with the blog candy!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Real Red) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Sunday Picnic from Garden Variety collection, Image from Early Bird collection) Cosmo CricketStickers:  (Tiny Type) Cosmo Cricket

You've been super busy making fabulous stuff. I hope you are doing well! I hoard things too and by the time I get around to using them they are "old" in this paper crafting industry. Your card is too fun!

So cute! I'm glad you put those stickers to good use. I'm a hoarder, too! I actually just took some things out of my cart even though I loved them because I knew I would never find a card "good enough" to use them on. Is that a symptom of my hoarding getting worse or better? :)
