Big purple share and some other stuff too.

Hey guys not too much new scrapping done this week as I was busy sorting out my scrappy stash for a garage sale that was held at my LSS today. I have totally culled my stash and for the first time in years I have room in my scrap cupboard and in my storage unit draws too. I ended up taking five bags of stuff of to the sale and Asher's teacher got three with another one here to go as well.
Here is a photo of my car boot all loaded up. My 52 week photo for the week.
Not too sure just what was sold yet. Will find out tomorrow but what wasn't will not be coming back in for sure. I'll donate it somewhere. Most of it was brought when I first started out card making/stamping and was stashed in containers that I haven't even looked in for a year or more and I wasn't likely to ever use.
Since our Princess Reenie has been home she has taken a liking to Asher's bean bag and last night as she was sleeping I couldn't help but snap this photo.Here are some projects that I did up for Purple onion last month that I never got around to posting here.
Love my Hi 5 girl. I used the love note block stamp along with the Vintage blank ticket and Doodled hearts stamps. The photo was taken back stage at Asher's dancing concert rehersals last year.
I love you card.I used the Doodled hearts stamp again with the Love you to stiches stamp which is on the same page as the Doodled hearts stamps.
If you can tell me just where I used the doodled heart stamp on my card I'll pop a rak in the post to you.
Thinking of you cardI used the Stitches set along with one of the Seasonal definitions set which I have stamped on both of the flowers before layering and folding them.
This will be on it's way to a fellow Purple onion dter who lost her sister a week ago.
Just for you card.I used the Hopscotch sentiments set.
This will be on it's way to Michelle as a thanks for passing the above card on for me.
I have added some finishing touches to my Feburary samples and will post up here soon. If you follow the links to the stamps in the shop you may have to scroll down the page to find the stamps I have used on some of them.
I also have had my step by step layout go live over the weekend as part of Therapys step weekend.
Popcorn muncher.I so love how this has turned out and have since done a 6 by 12 using the same steps. You can find the steps up in the forum here.
I'll be able to share that secret of mine soon. Anyone want to try and guess just what it is although a few of you are already in the know. lol
Well that's all for now girls.
Don't forget about the little rak I have up for grabs if you can tell me just where I used the doodled heart stamp on my I love you card.
Till next thanks for popping in and any comments that you may leave and happy scrapping.

And LOVE that U got rid of some of your stash....I have done something like that twice! Once I donated like 5 bags to a woman that teaches at a high school for lower income kids and she taught a scrap class!!! And the other time was a woman here in the states that was trying to get foster parents follow the regulations of making "life books" for the foster as they went from home to home they were able to document those times!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) But now.....looking thinks I have tooooooooooo much stuff if I was able to donate twice!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):)

How great to get rid of so much unused stash ... all the more room for new stuff!!!! I love the cards sooooo much - they are just beautiful. I think the stamp is in the flower too - in the centre bit. As for your secret though, I know exactly what it is ... you've done some more absolutely fabulous work which a huge manufacturer has fallen in love with and wants to add you to their creative team??? Is that exact enough?? -LOL- can't wait to hear what it is.
