I hope everyone has enjoyed their summers and are looking forward to fall.
(If you are hopping in from my talented teamie Jacquie’s What Did I Do Today Blog you are heading in the right direction!)


Today we are starting up the Hoarders Blog Hop 
BUT….
We have a….
CHANGE!!!
We will be hopping once a quarter
AND
We will be giving out prizes!!!! 
 I created a Halloween Card from my hoards of never used items…lol
Gloria from Scraps of Life and are fearless, creative leader gave us an unlimited list of possible ideas 
BUT…..
I had this stamp that has been sitting in eye view on my shelf for 2 years!!!!
My dear friend Alyson gave it to me when she double ordered it but I have never had time to use it!!!
SO….
Today is the day!!!!

I began by first stamping my Pumpkin on pattern paper from the Paper Stash Halloween Pad from Tim Holtz. 
Sad to say that I have only used this paper once. 
I colored the images with Spectrum Aqua Markers. 

Distress the edges of all the papers with distress tool. 
Ink all the edges with Chestnut Roan Ink. 

Layer distress paper to top of card front. 

Fussy cut 2 like bugs from paper; place together with pop dots. 
Add to front of card base. 

Make a bow and place on card front along with a small token. 

Stamp pumpkin on pattern paper; fussy cut the “pumpkins” out. 
Add to front of card with pop dots. 

Add another of the bugs from the paper pad to top of card front. 

I like to decorate the inside of my cards…
PLUS…
It helps me to use more of my stash!!!!
 
I hope I have inspired you to go through your stash to see if you have any Fall or Halloween products you need to use. 
With any luck you might even find other things, lol. 
I know I always do. 
Your next stop is over to Wendi’s Scrappy Day in Paradise Blog to see what she found in her hoarders of stuff to create with; be ready to be inspired!!!
