Old School

Do you have a lot of stamping supplies? Some of them see way too little use? If so, you're like me. And just so you know, we're not alone. In fact, there's a Challenge Your Stash group on SCS that is trying to rectify that, one card at a time.

Each month - on the 28th of the month to be exact - we share a card we've made for that month's theme (chosen by one of our members) and we're not to buy anything. The idea is to use what we have. Barb, the leader of the group chose the name Challenge Your Stash for this little group and it certainly fits.

This month Jen chose our theme - 

"Old School" - old school techniques or supplies and/or images that remind you of the old days.

What a fun theme!

For my card I chose not to color - because when I first started making cards, I didn't do any coloring. I did some two-step stamping back then, but no coloring.

I also used a stamp set I've literally had for years and years - October Afternoon Report Card - which is an old-fashioned school theme stamp set. I did choose a sentiment from a My Favorite Things stamp set - You Make the Grace - because I thought it went with the card very well.

Here's the inside of my card:

I hope Jen, Barb, and the other CYS gals give me a good grade don't put me in the corner with a dunce hat on my head.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Jeanette, this is so cute! It does bring back memories...especially the chalk board. Now, all they use are white boards, smart boards, and computers...even the wonderful overhead projector is gone. TFS and taking me back.

What a great card Jeanette, and although you may not have coloured on it, it is still a stunner with the red, black and white combination
