Out With The Old!

The first challenge of the year at Stampin' for the Weekend is "Out With The Old" & we would like to see you use some of your old stash on your projects.  This is the perfect chance to rummage through your drawers & use some of your old supplies (this was one of my New Year's resolutions so this challenge was perfect for me).  I used some papers that I've had for ages ( I do like them but I don't make enough men's cards to use them very often).  The image is from DigiStamp Boutique & coloured with ProMarkers & I finished the card off with some mesh, ribbon & greeting (all of which I've had for ages too).  I hope you can find time to join us & there is the chance to win a £10 Lili of the Valley gift voucher for more incentive :)

The challenges:
DigiStamp Boutique - January Competition
Dutch Dare - For the Boys
Moving Along With The Times - Spots & Stripes
Cute Card Thursday - You're Having a Laugh
Charisma Cardz - Happy Birthday
C.R.A.F.T. - Celebration 
Bee Crafty - Celebration 
Pile It On - Manly Cards

Clever use of the ol' netting's amazing what stash we have but forget about. I've put together another 2 bags of stuff to give away of stash I no longer use, dread to think how much I spent in the early days of card making. Hardly buy anything these days. Have a groovy weekend my friend xx
