May Stash Challenge

Hello folks, Ruth here again with another Christmas card challenge at 52 {C}CT and it's time for a stash challenge.  I love it when I can use a new stash item with an oldie but goodie stash item.  I'm fortunate to have crafty friends who I can borrow items from - or more often swap items with.  So mulling over old, new and borrowed led me to thinking of the wedding tradition of "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" and my May stash challenge was decided on! 

It would be great if you could use all 4 categories but if that's not possible, please do use at least 2 of the categories for creating your Christmas card. 

We have a fabulous GDT this month.
Please welcome--Judy V of Created Just 4 U!

Here's her take on our challenge this week~ 

Here's some inspiration from the DT:


(Old-Stamps & Dots, New-Washi Tape, Blue-glitter gel pen on eyes)

New stamp, borrowed sentiment, old ink and blue.

"Old, New & Blue"

old: stamp and snowflakes die, new: house die, blue: sky,
 borrowed: white paper and square

Something Old (dsp), New (stampin' blendabilities markers),
Borrowed (stamps) and Blue (little bit of color)

(Old: twill; New: die; Borrowed: Ruth's card idea; Blue: cardstock & ribbon)

old, new, borrowed and blue
