This post is in tribute to two wonderful ladies, Darnel and Di . These two ladies have blogs that consistently inspire me.
Di runs a weekly snippets challenge on her blog, Pixies Crafty Workshop. Yes, you read correctly. Di's challenge is that you must use snippets somewhere on your card. Even better yet...on all of your card! Her own cards are lovely. She is brave enough to stamp direct to card and embraces many techniques. Her directions are always clear and easy to understand.
Darnell's blog, djkardkreations, is full of witty posts that leave it impossible for you to read and not crack a wide smile. Darnell has created many acronyms that have become used and treasured by other bloggers. She coined the term VOS which stands for Very Old Schtuff ! Darnell has a challenge starting on Aug 27th where she asks you to submit a NBUS card (never before used schtuff). You can find the details on her blog here... hope to see you there!
So, my card today is a tribute to both of these ladies...a card made from snippets and full of Vos items. The triangles of the background DP (dollar store) were leftovers from a previous card. The Dream sentiment was stamped many years ago, using white Brilliance Ink on a purple snippet of card It was then filed away and forgotten (VOS). The two tags, the green Dream rectangle complete with dragonfly accent and the large spotted green paper flower petals, are part of a set I bought a few years ago, at one of my neighbour's garage sales. (VOS)
The butterfly is from a package of butterflies, picked up from Michaels clearance bins. The purple and beige petals of the flower are from the glass jars of flowers that decorate my craft room. They are about 10 years old (at least). Very Vos indeed. The black center is a brad...remember when we used those on every card?
So, there you go. A card made with previous rejects, long lost items and some very old schtuff!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
