Sketch Saturday and Aug/Sept stash report

Not much got made in August as I spent much of it on holidays!  Very decadent I know but I was celebrating!

So I don't really have a used up list as I honestly don't think I've finished up one package of anything.  But I have been making a conscious effort to use up old stash, such as:

  1. Ribbons I've been collecting for years
  2. Papers from really old (5+years here folks!) issues of Making cards.
  3. More paper from the Faded China pad that I find difficult to use
  4. Random stuff like buckles.
Owing to the fact that I have no idea where I tidied away my one layer card stock to, I haven't made any more one layer cards! Seriously, how can a stack of A4 card just vanish?  

Still not making much impact in my stash but I am persevering with using what I have.  Even on this card...I've had the pony stamp for ages and it doesn't see the light of day often enough and don't even mention how old the paper is!! 

This is actually my third attempt at this sketch, I just couldn't get something I was happy with from such a simple sketch.  However, my mistakes turned in to other things so all is good.

Sweet card Abi! Impressed you're still sticking to using up your 'old stuff'!You have much more self discipline than I do!

Hi Abi and hope your keeping well.
Your paper definately goes with your stamped image and looks great. I thiunk sometimes some of the simple sketches are the harder to do as we have to stop ourselves from the embellishing !!! or too much of it!!
You have done a great job with this one.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

I love the sketch this week at Sketch Saturday as it really allows the focal image to shine. This is a sweet card I'm sure someone will enjoy receiving, especially a little princess for her birthday.
