ABC Christmas ,,, U for Unused Stash

Hi all ,,, the weeks are rolling on by and before you know it Christmas will be here ,,, and have you got a box of cards ready ? If you have been joining in with Christmas challenges all year then there will be no need for a last min rush to the shops to buy them !!! :-)

This week on the ABC Christmas Challenge we are already up to ‘U’ !

‘U’ for Unused Stash ,,,,

this can be something you just bought or something that has been stuffed in the cupboard and neglected. The DT have all taken photo’s of their unused stash, you don’t HAVE to ,,, BUT if you do you will be eligible to be considered as a future GD !! YAY !! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher to her store ,,,

AND Bugaboo Stamps who will be giving a lucky entrant a choice of 7 digi images.

Here is my new stash ,, a Die=namics ‘Tag You’re It Die and stamp set and American Crafts Garland Ribbon.

I used some new Lawn Fawn stamps, coloured with copics and popped onto the die cut tags with pop dots. The paper is Basic Grey from a Nordic Holiday pack. I added some star dust stickles, ribbon , a Martha Stewart punched snowflake and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish.

Thanks for looking :-) If you would like a chance to win even more prizes then you might be interested in joining in the Wild Rose Studio Festive Frolics Blog Hop too ! Smile

Thanks for your fabulous entry - so sorry to be so late commmenting but Max and I are meeting up this weekend and as you can imagine one of us is busy packing and the other knee deep in cleaning duties to make sure all is spick and span for the visit.
So excited. Have a great weekend and hope you'll have chance to join in our new challenge which started yesterday - it's all about FOOD.

America said...

Oooh, Im glad I'm not part of that DT cuz if I had to show my unused stashes, I would be shot by the crafting community!!! Seriously! I hoard everything crafty and never have the time to use it! LOL! Isnt that terrible??? Maybe I just need to hire a Nanny and a Chaueffer and a Maid and a Cook and a Tutor because then I would have the time to use up my precious hoarded unused stashes, right? :) hehehh

I love how you took the time to use these new goodies. Love how you combined these elements and created a beautiful and adorable Holiday card here. :) Way to go GF!
