You Are So Cool!

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
Welcome to another challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  We are the challenge blog that suggests you can have Retail Therapy in your Studio/Craft Room every single day of every week.
Yes, we promote discovery.  Go ahead and admit that your DH is perfectly justified when he says:

"What, more stuff?  I bet you have stuff you have never used, probably don't even know what you have in that room.  Honestly, I wish you would go back to buying shoes!"

I bet you can guess how I came up with that quote!
So, here we are giving you another chance to Shop Your Stash.  Then, you can wear those really cool shoes you bought two weeks ago.  He won't be any the wiser! :D)

Since Thanksgiving is nearly here,  this will be a two week challenge and  pretty simple:  
See, easy peasy. Simply use the scraps from the 10,000 Christmas Cards you've made!

Here's Mine.  Very CAS
I don't do much CAS, but I had fun with this one. 
 I was inspired by a fabulous design of my friend Carla Suto of Carla's Stamping Spot

The Ribbon I used for the bow is almost three years old!  The green paper is left over from a school project I did with my grandson.  All of the white Neenah CS are pieces that were left over from other projects.  For all my Shopping Our Stash projects, I try to use items that are at least six months old.

Happy Turkey Day!  Happy Chanukah!
