New Stash Challenge

My oh my how the weeks fly by!! we are now two weeks into our monthly Hambo Hoedown challenge, and this months challenge is all about making any  kind of creation and incorporating  your newly acquired stash, if you are anything like me, I am always "acquiring" new stuff!!!!!  I don't know how my craft room hasn't dropped down into my kitchen yet!!!! Yikes!! and it doesn't help with internet shopping, it is all just too easy and readily available at the touch of a button,...good thing for me, bad thing for my credit card. So anyway, we would love you to join in with our fun challenge, I can't wait to see all your newly gotten stash.
Here are a couple of examples to get your inspirational juices flowing.


Jeannies fabulous card using MIME available in rubber and clear stamps, using her gorgeous little stash of enamel hearts.


Jane's card using ROLLER BUNNY available in rubber stamps, and using the Memory box florina stencil.

Sending hugs and kisses to DT member Lyn who has the lurg, hope you feel better soon Lyn :)
