Funky, Fun, & Frugal Finds:

Pin It

Ahhhh, alliteration ...

Hey, there you are! And happy "Old Stuff Day!" Now, if you have any old stuff at your house that you don't want anymore, jess let me know and I'll make arrangements to take it off your hands ... 'cuz I jess love old stuff! When I go out, the DH never knows what I might come home with. Especially 'road side' stuff. Why, I can see something, assess it's worth, and come to a screeching halt in seconds ... all at 45+ mph! I know, it's a gift.

And if anyone has an old Hoosier they don't want, well, lucky you 'cuz I'm ready to take it off your hands!

ONward H-C-M's:

Today's old-lookin' card was created for SCS's "Way to Use It" challenge. This week's challenge, WT207, is "Frugal Finds." For all the challenge deets, click
HERE. For the ginormous view of this card, clicky on the photo.

I'm also linking this card to
Michelle's "Stampers Dream Dreamy Challenge." To check out the SDDC5 challenge deets, click HERE.

My funky frugal find is the corrugated cardboard I used on the bottom panel of my card. This piece was packed around the sides of a box of card stock I'd ordered. I'd planned on using it in a project sooner or later; the Splitcoast challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so.

For all the card info, check out the supply list, below.

So, today I thought I'd share this quick l'il video with you. If you're under 35 or so, you might not get this but ... watch anyway:

BTW, I'm liquidating my eBay store inventory and closing up shop. If anyone would like to purchase wholesales lots of paper, and other fun mixed media goodies, drop me a quick note and let me know what you're interested in. Trust me, you'll get a good great awesome buy!

I totally got that video clip and I'm under 35! Actually had to learn typing on both computer and typewriter. Probably ended soon after I moved on.

As usual you have nailed those challenges. You are so talented!
