As You Like It Challenge #91 - Old or New Stash

Hi Crafters,

There's a new challenge starting over at As You Like It and we would like you to tell us your 

Favourite Old or New Stash and WHY.

I love new crafty stuff don't you? But I also have plenty of old stuff too. After crafting for ten years you tend to accumulate lots of things. Today  my card is using an image from our sponsor DigiStamp Boutique called Sketchy Flower Frames and these come in a set of four. I loved colouring these new images but I really loved hunting through my room to find some crafty items I hadn't used for a while too so I'm sorry but I'm sitting on the fence for this challenge Girls.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Creative Fingers - #118 ATG
DigiStamp Boutique - OCT ATG DSB
Crafty Girlz - #20 ATG

Our sponsor is giving a £10 voucher to the lucky winner.

Thanks for joining me today and I look forward to seeing what you create using your favourite old or new stash.

Goodbye Lizzie

Hi Crafters,

It's been a sad day, coming to terms with saying goodbye to Lizzie our rescue cat who we have loved for fourteen years, she was so much a part of our family. 
At 17 I knew this time would come but she had 3 seizures yesterday and we couldn't watch her suffer anymore.
She had such a lovely nature and did funny and endearing things so I'd like to share this picture of her doing just that...
..resting her head on a tennis ball!

ABC Christmas Challenge - U for Under The Pile

Hi Crafters,

Now I'm guessing that I'm not the only one who has unused crafty stash. That special item we just had to have at the time but that still lays unused in the drawer. I think all of you out there can relate to that.
Well, our new challenge at ABC Christmas will give you the opportunity to use that item because we would like you to create a Christmas project using something that has been 'Under the pile' for at least a year.

I am using a digital image that I've had for more than a year and also these gorgeous non-traditional Christmas papers.
