Welcome to Week 52 of CASology! Here's the cue word for this week:
I bought this neon cardstock about 6 years ago when I first started crafting - clearly I was way ahead of the trend! LOL!! The only colour I seem to have used much of is the pink (although when and on what I have no idea...). I was glad to put a few scraps of it to work this week in my never-ending effort to work through my stash. I also inked up these Paper Smooches stamps for the first time so I can pat myself on the back for that too.
There are quite a few bloggers and challenges encouraging us to use our stash these days (and I need all the encouragement I can get). Darnell of djkardkreations is currently working through her NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff), The Sweet Stamp Shop has started a weekly Use What You Have challenge and the Shopping Our Stash Challenge has been around for a while. As Darnell said, "This definitely feels like a 'Year of the Use It'." I'm down with that. Hopefully it will not only help me cull the stash but will also distract me from the current shopping ban... :(
Okay, enough of my blathering. Time for you to head over to the CASology blog and check out the awesome designs by the rest of the DT. Then you have to put on your 80s thinking caps and get crazy with the NEON!
