Challenge Your Stash!

Today is the day I post a project for our Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 24th month of de-stashing-we are at the end of our 2nd year into our challenges.  Yes, we will be back in January for the start of year #3!

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Jody posted our December challenge--Use an owl on your card

I inked up one of my favorite Penny Black stamps.  I made another graduation card--I made one for Maggie's November challenge too!  

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards yesterday on the 28th, today or in the next few days.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSDEC.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For January, Sue is up and we already know our next theme.  Be sure to check back to see what we create in 2019!
