best SOS challenge ever?

this week at shopping our stash, instead of hiding away our crafty addictions, we're ♥CELEBRATING♥ them! sound fun? come and join us! here's the brief:

I Do Not Need Another One 
(...or Maybe I Do!)
Make a card or project featuring something you buy a lot of, like every butterfly stamp, or every Magnolia stamp, every pad of paper by a certain company, or every color of washi tape ... be sure to tell us what you've chosen in your post, we just love that sort of thing! :)

i confess i could've gone a few ways with this one: vintage paper, prima flowers, bling; there are several areas where i find it hard to resist having just one more! but lately it's tape. so i made this, which miiiiiiiiiiight look a little bit familiar to you:

patterned paper: bo bunny, dcwv, studio calico, love elsie, basic grey; decorative tapes: love my tapes, bazzill, recollections, october afternoon, my mind's eye, 7 gypsies; cloud punch: fiskars; ink: colorbox; adhesives: recollections brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
one of the many things i love about the index card a day project in which i've been participating this summer, is that it's a great place to "test drive" new ideas. i can't say that i've often come up with something that translates as directly into a card as the ICAD at the very bottom of this post; usually it's more subtle an influence than that... but hey... i'll take it!

why not stop over at SOS to see the awesome projects my teammates have created? you'll be glad you did, i promise! ♥


  1. this card is fabulous....absolutely! love all the colours and being a tape addict myself, I am drooling!

  2. This is gorgeous! The colors are stunning together and the stitching on each element really sets is apart. Beautiful work!
