Shopping Our Stash #161: 5 A Day...

Good morning peeps! Time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week we want to see fruits and/or veggies on your card or project. Here's my card:

Here's the inside:

I started out using Freshly Made Sketch #145, but it took on a life of its own. ☺ I was digging through my stash of these little shapes, and found a couple carrots. I'm sure I bought them for some reason years ago, but can't for the life of me remember why. I also found a carrot shaped shank button in my button stash. SCORE! I just broke off the shank and glued all the pieces down using Glossy Accents. Except for the card base, all the papers are scraps. I broke out my itty alpha set for the sentiments. Had to have a little snark on my card. (wink!)

And now, for a surprise, I made another card! Yay me! Here it is:

and the inside:

I sort of cased another card shown here as one of the samples. There's no watermark on it so I don't know who made it. I'm assuming it's by Kim Hughes herself. (Thanks for the inspiration!) Again, except for the card base, all papers are from the scrap pile. I colored the veggies and trowel, fussy cut and adhered. The 'dirt' was die cut from one of the Borders 1 dies. I did a bit of masking with the sentiment in the cloud. I already gave this to my next door neighbor, Cathy. She helped me butcher back all the overgrown bushes in my front yard. The next day, I helped her dig out, line, plant bulbs, and mulch a new flower bed. I. Am. Sore! But I'm so glad she moved next door - great neighbors rock!

So, have any stamps or do dads that are fruits or vegetables? Why not use them to make a card or project! Be sure to link it up at Shopping Our Stash! If you get the chance, make sure you check out what my teammies came up with! Amazing cards by all!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Carrot shank button - coolio...in my line of work shank means something totally different...I am not sure what it means when it comes to buttons...
Love both cards! And ya, great neighbours do rock :)

Jessi Fogan said...

These are both fabulous! Of course I'm a little bit more in love with the first one ;) As for the second card, YAY for having awesome neighbours! I love it :)

Lindsey said...

These are both such fun cards! Gotta love the bonus snark on the first one, though. ;)

I laughed out loud when I saw your card. I have that stamp, and it's perfect to use with veggies. I'm very jealous you thought of it. :D

I KNOW WHAT A SHANK IS! Both kinds! I even bought a shank remover to snip off the backs of buttons so I can use them on cards.

Any YAY for good neighbors who labor together. Makes for good times and good friends.
