Shopping Our Stash #106

Hello sweet friends!  I have been absent again.  No excuses, just absent.  But today I have a card for our new challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  This week we want to see geometric shapes.  Squares, rectangles, hexagons, circles.  You choose!

I made a very simple (and quick) card for me.  I had seen some fun cards in blog land using circles so that's what I decided to try.
 I decided to only use scraps on this card (except for the base).  As I was flipping through my box I found the "friend" paper and it was big enough for the background.  I am visiting a friend tonight that was in an accident a couple weeks ago and wanted to make her a card, so this was perfect!  I punched a bunch of circles, embossed a couple of them and inked them.  I added some pearl cotton and a cross charm.  And....done!!  WAHOO!
Here you can see I added some circles on the inside with my writing panel.

That's it.  Now it's time to see what you can do!  But first, the ladies on the SOS design team have made some amazing cards for you this week so zip over there for more inspiration!  Then get busy and show us what you come up with!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,



  1. Absolutely gorgeous & perfect for your friend! I hope she's recovering quickly :)

  2. oooooooooooh! i so totally LOVE THIS, michelle! and now i really REALLY wish i had embossed some of my shapes before attaching them... that gives it sooooooooo much texture and an extra bit of pattern! BRILLIANT!!! :)
