Get a Broom- I need to DUST!

Kimberly Van Diepen stampin up

Okay!  Pep talk time.  

Do you have a stamp set sitting on your desk that needs to be dusted off and put to good use? Get the broom… let's DUST!

It occurred to me that I've had the stamp set Secret Garden sitting on my desk for awhile.  In fact, I literally had to wipe my hand over the cover to remove the dust particles and left over embossing powders that have been collecting on this set.  

Why has it been on my desk this long? Like I'm sure you can relate, I've had ALL good intentions on using it.  Then when I get ready to use it I come up EMPTY handed with ideas.  

I had to put a stop to the madness and get busy!  It's literally OBSURD to have something beautiful not put to use.  

Can you relate?

The trouble is I don't stamp with flowers often.  In fact you could probably do a little research on my site and come up with very few floral cards. GAH!  

While I may not be a FLOWER girl, I do love that these flowers have the matching framelits!  That saved me time and the ability to make MORE projects.  SCORE! 

So here is the challenge…

PULL out the set that has the most dust bunnies on it and put it to use.  Ink it up really GOOD. Share a link to your beautiful creation in the comments.  I would love to see what you are doing.
