#1 - Everything Flower

When I tallied together my last shopping sprees I was stunned, I hadn't realized that I had shopped that much! So well something had to be done, so I now have a shopping blockade. This shopping blockade comes with a set of rules and a counter.

I'm doing a 50 project challenge, I have to do 50 projects before shopping. A card counts as a project only if it comes with a video (as that takes enough time), a series of cards/tags can count as a project if they are four or more. All rest of things counts as project on their own.

I have 3 exceptions to the no buying rule:

1. The subscriptions I already have is allowed to carry on(Silhoutte Store, The World of Cross Stitching Magazine and Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kit).
2. If I run out of Adhesives, Cardboard or basic Cardstock(black, craft and white) I'm allowed to restock those items.
3. I have put away money to buy a 72 pen set of copics which is planned for October, if I haven't finished the challenge by then I'm allowed to order that and that alone.

I hope that you will help me keep strong and not buy anything. If you want to follow my progress and look at the projects I do, every post I do for this challenge will be tagged "Shopping Blockade".

Now when that is over with, lets start with the first project. This is a card, but I made a Color Me Happy video while creating it so it does count.
