SOS #179: Free Is Good!

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge. This week's theme is Free Is Good! and we'd like you to use something you got for free. Think: an RAK from a friend, a freebie included with an order, something you got as a door prize at a crafty event, something gifted to you because people think you can use just about anything on a card ... you know: free!

Please note: This is a two-week challenge, since this Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US, and most people are out of commission for the weekend. So you'll have two weeks to play. Enter often!

Here's what the ladies have made for this challenge:

Freebies: Journal card, paper collection, Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio tool

I used ribbon included with several online stamp store orders.

 I used goodies from friends - sequins, Thickers, and paper

My mom found these awesomely kitschy red doilies 
in her dining room cupboard and I (ahem) "liberated" a few for crafty purposes! :)

I won this stamp at a monthly House Mouse draw at the Butterfly Moon 

The cardstock, design paper, stamps and ribbon slide were all FREE!!!

Digi I won on Ching Chou Kuik page

I received a sheet of these flower stickers in a welcome pack at a crop

Now it's YOUR turn! Go into your stash and dig out some stuff you got for free. Then use it and come back to link us up below so we can see what you've made! And remember, you have TWO WEEKS to play, so enter often!

Mr Linky will be open until Monday, December 8th, at 11:55 pm ET. Please limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.
