SOS61 - What was I thinking...

This week we at Shoppin Our Stash have a very interesting challenge called "What was I thinking?"
We all have things we just had to have or bought without thinking and then realized that you have no use for them... We want you to dig through your stash, find those items and use them.

I got this retired wedding themed SU Simply Scrapin kit in ebay auction for couple of bucks... I have no idea why did I had to buy it since I never made a scrapbook page in my life....What was I thinking?
The card bases are from another " What was I thinking" buy. I saw this card kit with stickers in Walmart clearance section for like $2 and of course had to buy it. Never mind I almost never use stickers and those in the kit were quite useless - some of them even ripped when I tried to peel them from the backing.
So I used the card bases and the epoxy circle stickers from it - sticker flowers, sentiments, elements and papers from the simply scrapin kit and made this set of cards.

I'm also entering these into the following challenges:
Tammy's Scrapin Corner - anything goes
Unscripted Sketches - sketch - bottom left card

maybe you were thinking you are a BRILLIANT papercrafter who'd be able to take some bargain finds, combine them AWESOMELY, and make GORGEOUS cards from them??!?! (at least, that is what *I* am thinking b/c these soooo totally ROCK!!!) ♥♥♥
