Shopping Our Stash #136

Happy hello to you friends!  It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another great challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  Our theme this week is "Cabin Fever" - something "outdoors-y".  Right about now I do not want to be outdoors.  It has been single digits most days for the last couple of weeks.  We heat with a coal stove and many days I plant myself on the couch closest to it and conduct school from there.  In fact that is exactly where I am sitting right now.  I decided to paint my toenails and I am not moving from this spot til I can put socks back on!

I whipped up a quick and, again this week, CAS card for me.  My fingers are starting to whisper they would like to color and embellish again, I may be back to my "normal" cards soon.
 (Sorry for the shadow on my card.  Its too chilly to set everything up in the kitchen and take another picture.)  Anyway, this card is another departure from my usual cards.  First, no coloring, second NO embellishments what-so-ever, third, it's not square.  I really did make this one!  I needed a card for my "babies'" twelfth birthday this week.  He is so excited about being able to hunt with dad and big brother, Ben.  I will be getting him….well, I'm not sure what I am getting him, but a gift card will fit in here nicely.  I used three embossing folders on this card as well as all scraps.  No new card stock was cut in the making of this card!  The trees are simply triangles and the snow was ripped from white card stock.  I did not take any other pictures because it's really simple and, well, any more pictures would probably get boring.

So there you have it.  If you are suffering from Cabin Fever as well why don't you dip in to your stash and join us this week?

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

Blessings & Hugs,



  1. I think this is so awesome, I so wish I could manage a CAS card, I'm allways wanting more. Love everything about it, if it was larger it would look fabulous hanging on a wall of the cabin.

  2. It's fun to dabble in other styles now & then :) Love all the texture on this!

  3. what a fabulous (non-colored! non-square!!!) card! gorgeous use of embossing, as well! and totally outdoorsy, which, at the moment is a place i really only want to go ON A CARD, lol! (i am chuckling at your toenail story... i am LONGING for a day in the 40's on which i could take off my socks for long enough to pedicure... i might actually have to go PAY someone to do them, rather than wait for spring, lol!) :) :) :)

  4. No new card stock was cut in the making of this card...ha ha ha I LOVE that!!!
    Fantastic birthday card for your fella, I am sure he is going to love it!

  5. I love CAS cards like this. :) Stay warm!

  6. A very different card than your usual style, for sure, but still wonderful!!!! Yay for scraps!!
    I've been sitting next to our pellet stove trying to stay warm as I visit blogs!!

  7. I love the simplicity of your card, Michelle! You must have been bleeding from the ears from not adding ANY embellies to it! LOL! I hope that your 'baby' has a happy birthday!
