Most old, but a bit new too.


Well, let me say that I am glad we were not in the blizzard that reached the east coast over the weekend. I feel bad for those that were affected and hope all were safe and life is back to normal now.

My weekend was busy but we got to spend time with a dear family friend of ours and it was so wonderful that I hope to do that more often. I did find a wee bit of time to play in my craft room, but not as much as I had wished for. I did prepare a card for the CCMC 390, and I dug a bit on my boxes of retired paper. It is nice to have those boxes to pull from and reminisce over the retired products. I went all hog on the retired and used almost all retired products on this card: Flashback DSP, Flower Pot DSP, Label Something stamp set, Artisan Label punch, and that beautiful Lost Lagoon ribbon. The Label Bracket is current, so there, something new too.

Thank you for visiting today. Please do stop by again. Be well.

  1. It is always fun to use up paper - old or new! I love the combination of patterns that you chose. They don't compete with one another or the punched sentiment. Very pretty! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

  2. Fun use of the different designs of DSP! They work with the simple greeting! Thanks for playing along with the color challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

  3. What an eclectic mix of patterns, shapes, and panels! The ribbon is a nice addition to tie it all together! Thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  4. Love all the patterned panel with just the simple greeting! (That was always one of my favorite shapes in a punch!) The ribbon is such a nice finishing touch! Thanks for joining us this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  5. What a great mix of patterns - the positioning of the sentiment in relation to the panels really draws the eye and allows the card to look nicely balanced. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!

  6. A great way to showcase some beautiful patterned paper layers! Fab card! Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary! xx
