Needed to make something .....

... and found these stack of papers in a drawer ... DCWV Rock Star pack .... which I haven't used in AGES and I mean AGES! My crafty clearing up came about just before I went on holiday as I managed to hurt my foot and was on crutches. Not being able to settle at anything due to the pain, I thought I would distract myself by tidying up my craft stuff and sort out any bits that I can use in school ready for the new term. That's how I discovered this pack of papers and also 4 packs of K&Co matt stack papers .... so watch out as I think I need to use up some of the old stuff before buying any more new stuff that "I MUST HAVE" ..... okay I now have to admit (before she comments) that I am in the process of buying a load of stuff off Charlie from SU !!!

Anyhow, I waffle on and have now lost what I was going to say and share ... oh, DCWV Rock Star papers. Here's a quick card that I have made only using 2 papers ... go figure, you would of thought I'd use loads more but for some reason, it didn't happen!

I have add the charms, tickets, bottle cap, chipboard bits and bobs for AGES too and thought I'd use as many as possible to make my card. I squashed my bottle top in my Big Shot but I think, I might of over done it a tad as it is now completely FLAT! The letters are from a whole wad of Letraset sheets I found neatly stored in a folder which again, I have had for AGES and really must use them up before purchasing anymore sentiment stamps or rub-ons ..... (uuummmm think I might have broken this promise already!) You remember the ones I mean .... loads of big alphabet sheets that were used in the 80's/early 90's with tracing paper in between to stop them sticking together or the letters pulling off?!?!?

I am entering my card in to the following challenges:

Hooked on Craft Challenges - a card for a man
The squirrel and the fox - one for the men
Paper Play Challenges - sentiment as the main focus

Well off for a coffee with a friend and to catch up on all the village gossip .... gotta be done!
