Something old, Something New

Tuesday again and yet another fabulous challenge from Try it on Tuesday, and so easy to achieve!  All we want to see on this weeks challenge is a CARD with something older than 6 months and something newer than 6 months.  This one was chosen by one of our DT, the lovely Carol, who certainly knows how to pick the challenges!

On this card, the ribbon, tag and sentiment stamp are as old as the hills but the brand spanking new things are the new stamps just released by The Stamp Man. Really young, happy images arn't they.  They have been designed to work with nesties and are great for this technique where the stamped image holds the card together. If anyone knows what these cards are called do let me know, seen a few out there and love the simplicity of them.

These cards are going to feature as a make and take for the next open day at The Stampman. Do go over to their site for the details. There's going to be a big sale on and plenty of tea and coffee on the go!

The try it on Tuesday team have gone and done it again, produced some wonderful works of inspiration for you to peruse and if you give the challenge a go this week there is also a prize offered from one of our other sponsors

What more could we ask for (ok perhaps a never ending supply of chocolate, a gorgeous hunk of a man to feed it to us and a limitless purse to buy craft stuff, but lets be realistic, who would want to eat that much chocolate!)

Hope you have a great week and get chance to enjoy this lovely spring weather

Gentle thoughts flying your way

This is a great card, Michelle, I love those new stamps. I've seen this style of card all over too. I tried one at Christmas but cut the holes too big and it fell over so I've never tried again. Must do though, they look really different. It's been a bit cooler today hasn't it but what a gorgeous weekend.
Hope all is well with you and yours.
hugs Lisax

Stunning card Michelle. I've only seen this very recently somewhere but for the life of me I can't remember where or what they called it. It's going to really bug me now, lol!
