Nesties!!! I love them!!!

Ok...as mentioned before...I was gonna post my first project made using my new babies. Well...I completely forgot yesterday and so I'm posting today.

I made this tin for a friend who had been suffering from a nasty cold and so in the tin...I threw in some tea packets from Tazo teas. I love those teas!!! This one is a green tea with a dash of peppermint. Great for sore throats. I also had to use some of my neglected stuff to make this with something new...you know...to balance my purchases out! LOL! Yeah...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! :P I reached for my box of scraps and foud these large pieces of CS and DP just waiting for their time to be used. It's DP from K & Co. that I bought AGES ago from Target. Target doesn't even carry it anymore it's been that long!!! I've also negeteced my dimensional sticker flowers that combine with the DP also bought at Target. My objective this year...and part of a resolution is to use up what I haven't used. I need to justify my purchases...NO? I have also been neglecting my Rubber Necker stamps! I have a large photo box full of these stamps...and could you believe some haven't even been inked??? Yeah...that's bad! So when I finally decided on what I wanted to do with the tin...I reached for the foliage stamps from the Jeanne Streiff collection which I'm just now noticing they are no longer avail. So glad I picked them up when they had them. Basically everything on this tin was neglected stuff!!! I'm so horrible! *puts head down* BUT...that's about to change! This is one resolution I just can't breake!

Now...here is a pic of my new babies in their temporary home...that's until I go shopping again and buy me a binder and some magnet strips. Here they lay on a magnet sheet slipped in to a clear envie. They're together with their older brothers...the star...lol. :P

Gorgeous Gabby! Are you going to the Riverside stamp show this month? I am thinking about it- I only have one set of Nesties and that's where I got mine.
