Everything old is new again

This is another card made from the paper found in my stash on Monday night. It is good to be putting everything to use. I was only thinking today if I can challenge myself to not go craft shopping for two months. I will try to do this and use up some of the stock that I have. This is going to be extremely hard for me as its one of my favourite things in life to go craft shopping, I can only try, lets see what happens.

I kept this card simple, the little elephants have been cut out from patterned paper and mounted on foam mounting squares. I used "googly" eyes on this project as well which reminds me of my projects back in the day in primary school, such fun being able to use these again. I am into one word sentiments at the moment, not because I am lazy but sometimes its just all a card needs.

The challenges I have included-
Colour Challenge-Embellish
Old Stash-Paper play challenges
Something Old-Lexi's Creations
Anything goes-Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge

Yep, I know this is my second post for today. I am in the mood to craft and blog and have had the time to do so today so making the most of it.
