i've had the flowery chipboard letters i think since my niece madeline was 2 or 3 years old. because i'm pretty sure i bought them to use in one of her birthday gifts. for those of you keeping track of these sorts of things, maddie turned *13* in may, lol, so these are definitely "older stash" at this point. but i still really like them and i was pretty psyched that although i didn't still have enough left to spell "merry" i was able to pull off "noel"! the rest of the card is older bits of paper, including some of my favorite basic grey grungy solids, a bit of washi, a bit of doily and a little machine stitching. in other words: all my favorite things in honor of my favorite challenge!
