Episode 199 ~ "Use It or Lose It" Boys Birthday card

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends!
I hope you are having a happy day & squeezing in some craft time for yourselves... I am crazy busy making birthday cards like the one on this post for today. Our son is heading to a sleep over Birthday party tonight, I am sure he'll be in a great mood in the morning when we pick hime up for church, ugh!
This card is for my "Use It or Lose It " Series ~ I am determined to use the products I have on hand & not purchase anything else for awhile. Adhesive doesn't count though & for the first time ever, I went into Michael's yesterday & only came out with tape refills!!! That's it! Believe it or not, all the "stuff" was making me kinda dizzy.
I really need to weed through my craftroom & re-organize my goodies... Have a groovy weekend!
Big Huggs,


  1. Love it. I really need to start using my stuff without purchasing anything else too. I am such a paper hoarder, that it's not even funny :)

  2. Adorable quick and simple card! I am proud of you and Carolanne for sticking to the plan! I, too have been super good! Have not purchased anything this year! Yea!

  3. Yeah nice to see you back! Love your card that you made and your coloring is great. You and Carolanne are doing wonderful on your buying.

  4. Great card Gale I always find it so hard to come up with guy card ideas congrats on your not making new craft purchases

  5. Great card Gale and I love that you are using up what you have. Way to go only getting tape. I am trying but it is so hard. I was thinking I don't have those three punches. Then I thought I could do those on my Gypsy. Thanks for saving me some money today. We got our taxes done and we have a big bill to pay. You go from getting refunds to owing a lot. I just don't understand.
    Thanks again,
    So happy to see you up and I hope feeling better.

  6. What a cute card! Way to go on using your stash. That is the hardest thing to do with all the new things coming out all the time. Keep it up!
