1st 100 cards in 100 days post

Hi!


Over on the Split Coast Stampers website, MindyKid posted a challenge, to make 100 cards in 100 days.  No specific designs or deadlines.  Just a goal to use what we have, and limit shopping trips if possible.

So I did some work, I just love this idea. I'm doing the old, haven't been used in a very long time Stampin' Up! sets, as a way to get collection of blank cards.

Disclaimer - I am a former SU demo, I started in 1995, I've amazed a huge collection of SU stamps as well as stamps from other companies. I stopped being a demo 7 years ago, and I haven't bought many stamps since then.  I like the idea of getting the old sets out, dusting them off and playing.

So, the sets I am showing are very old, probably no longer available or ridiculously high on E-Bay. I am not posting names, because the sets are just that old.

 Thanks for looking

Love these! It's good to see the older SU sets and techniques being used again. : ) Good luck on your 100 in 100. You have a great start!
