A personal challenge

Wild About You is one of those stamp sets that I had to have, but haven't touched in months. In fact, I've only made one card with it, a little 3x3 at that! Don't get me wrong, I love this set! I peruse the gallery at SCS, looking at all the adorable cards people have made using it, but somehow I never manage to ink it up.

It's all part of a much bigger problem. My constant desire to have the latest and greatest...more, more, more! So I've given myself a personal challenge to use all my neglected sets. My goal is to make 10 cards with each set; then I will feel like I haven't just thrown away my money, KWIM?

I won't be placing a new catty order for a while, so this is the perfect time to do this challenge. I better get started! So here is Wild About You #1...

Stamps: Wild About You (SU), Paisley Backgrounder (Cornish Heritage Farms), sentiment (unknown)
Paper: Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie (all SU)
Ink: Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip (all SU)
Other: Round Tab Punch (SU), cuttlebug embossing folder, 1/4" circle punch, rick rack, snaps

I love this card. I also love this set, but have been told by my stamping friend that I would never use it. It may make its way on to my list anyways. It can go into my cute and clean stamp collection.

What a sweet card. I know what you mean. I feel drawn to using new sets and neglect my older ones. What a great challenge to yourself.
