SHOPPING OUR STASH #179 - Free is Good!

Hello and good morning! It's time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! We want you to use your freebies! Did a good friend send you some craft supplies? Did you win something from a manufacturer? Did you place an order and you received something extra as a thank you? We want to see you use it! Also, since those of us in the States are about to celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday, this challenge will be open for two weeks! (Got to allow for those of you who are travelling and also for the tryptophan to wear off. HA!) Here's the card I made:

 and the inside:

The freebies on my card are: 1) the journal card - I received a little pack of them as a thank you in a Unity Stamp order. 2) the paper collection - I won the Sew Lovely collection from Carta Bella. 3) Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio tool - This was a comment-to-win prize from Card's Magazine blog.

Now it's your turn to dig out those freebies you've been hoarding and use them on a card or project! Be sure to link it up at Shopping Our Stash! We want to see it! While there please be sure to check out what my teammates created and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for stopping by. Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating later this week! Have a great day!
