Top Tip Tuesday - Dig Out the Old

Morning, once again I'm late with posting, I will get my life back in order soon.... or at least I hope I will.  

So this last week I have not been feeling the crafting, I have 'crafters block' this seems to be happening too often.  But I'm hopeful that the next couple of weeks I will spend doing what I want and how I want and hope it all comes back to be soon! 

Anyway enough nattering... I'm here with the challenge at Top Tip Tuesday this week, now we all have that stash thats at least 6 months old that we have forgotten about, you know those bits at the back of the draw, ohh and that ribbon you let slip behind the desk last year... yes we all do it, so this week we are celebrating that forgotten stash and want you to...  

Dig Out the Old! 

Now remember in your post we want to know what it is that you have dug out! I can't wait to see what some of you have hiding!!  Now on the TTT blog there is a FAB tutorial on how to use some of the neglected papers that are at the bottom of the stash, pop over and take a look at the wonderful tutorial from Janette!

Anyway onto my card this week! I have used an amazing image from D'Arcy's Diaries.  Now i kept seeing these images crop up over blogland and just fell in love! I couldn't wait to get her an colour her in, and I can't wait to buy dome more images!

the paper was from my stash and i added the rhinestones just to add dome bling and fill in the gap! The sentiment is from Bebebubu - Unity Stamps.  I can't help but love this stamp, so cute and works with so many images and for so many occasions (and every time i see it I sing you are my sunshine)! 

I know what your all thinking... whats my old stash, what have I used that I forgot I had?  Well over a year ago I treated myself to the Die-Namics rolled roses die.  It has been sat there and neglected at the bottom of my draw, I final caved and used it for this challenge, I have to say not the easiest things to stick together... If anyone has any tips they will be appreciated! 

so there you have it! Not the DT have some wonderful creations using their old stash, also its tipper week and there are some fab tips, so please pop over and see what the DT have created! Before I go I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
