Hoarded hodgepodge hardware


This is my last Sun Ripen card for a while, I promise!

I just had to color this with the Koh-I-noor pencils. Those things are addictive!

I broke out a piece of my Hodgepodge hardware which I have hoarded for a couple of years now. Why, oh why, do we do that? We find something we just must have and then hoard it, even though we know there will be something we will love better out next week.

I really think part of being a stamper includes being a hoarder to some degree.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!


Stamps: SU Sun Ripen II, SU Sweet Little Sentiments, Monarch

CS and DP: SU Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant

Inks, markers and coloring tools: Palette Noir, Koh-i-noor, Versamark

Maybe we need to start a Hoarders Anonymous group? I am the same way about my precious embellishments, papers, ribbon, etc!

Love your card. You colored the grapes beautifully. Yes, we do hoard, shop for more, and have to have the latest and bestest. It's a sickness I tell ya!

Purple and green are the colors of my dinnerware. There is just something about those two colors which I just love. You just made me realize what colors I need to do my curtains for my kitchen and diningroom! Funny how that works, isn't it...???!!!
