Challenge #80 - Ring out the old Ring in the New

Hello everyone - and welcome to our first challenge of 2011
to all of you and I hope 2011 is a fabulous year, full of Go
od Health and Happiness.

This week it's my turn ( LISA) to set the challenge and I have chosen the theme ..

I want you to use some old stash alongside some of your new stash .. maybe a new Christmas present from someone, or one to yourself lol.

We are sponsored this week by
Kerry the owner is offering ONE STAMP of your choice as the prize for this weeks challenge.This what she has to say.."Hi there! My name is Kerry and I'm owner/designer/general dogs body of Ladybug Crafts Ink. I started crafting just over 11 years ago. I wanted to take a calligraphy course which was full but managed to get the last space for a beginners stamping class. I can't say I fell in love with it...all that huffing and puffing on the stamp wasn't what I had in mind...but for the last 10 minutes of the class we were taught how to heat emboss and that's when the love affair began! Eighteen months ago I was bored with all th
e stamps on the market. There was nothing new...just slight variations on old stamps so after having a light bulb moment Nikki & Friends was born. Since Nikki came along there has been Buttercup, Ruby Fairy, Magnum & Lily, Robyn, Jack and Nikki's boyfriend Ben. Next week sees the launch of a new stamp set which I'm so excited about!I am delighted to be sponsoring MAWTT Challenge this week and hope you enjoy the de
sign team's cards and projects."

Wow, what amazing cards, the DT has inspired us with !!
All the printed paper I have used in my card is new, however the two images of the bird and the sentiment, have been stamped and resting my stash for veeery long. Finally they have a home.

Love all of the DT's card they are gorgeous! I used a new image, that's all for new :( lol Everything else on the card is old, old, old. But I did get to use a new image! Thanks for a great challenge!
