Stampin’ Up! Swirly Bird for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our blog hop we have a sketch challenge for you.  I decided to use the last of my Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper for my card today.  As I was trying to figure out what else to use (I don’t have the matching stamp set and dies) I decided to use some old favorites.  With all the beautiful NEW products that come out, we tend to forget about  the ones that have been sitting  on our shelves. If you are like me and you don’t own everything, every once in awhile we have to go through our stash for  some old favorites. I did that today with Swirly Bird.  Enjoy the hop!

    What a great use of old and new! Yes, we do tend to forget to use what we have on our shelves. My great granddaughter would absolutely love this card. She is a girly girl and orange is her FAVORITE color!
