Everything Old is New Again Challenge

This is my second post today, go me! Here is my Makeup 4 the Weekend post.

About a week ago, Sue posted a card with a long forgotten stamp set. Allison commented that we should have a challenge where we created a card with a long forgotten stamp/ stamp set that we would first have to blow the dust of off due to lack of use. Sue jumped on the suggestion and now, with the help of some other PSF's, we are hosting the "Everything Old is New Again" challenge.

I used this House Mouse image, I believe I bought it when I first started stamping a few years ago. Sadly, he has never been used; these little buggers intimidate me. I chose him because of that and because he is appropriate for the current season.

I decided to go even further and used dp's that are older as well; some BG and SU. This was a fun challenge; it was amusing to go through my "old" stuff and reminisce. There are some treasures buried in the miscellaneous bin! LOL

Want to join us? (Of course you do!!)

All you have to do is create a card with a stamp set that hasn't seen the light of day in some time. Then link it up at Allison's blog by Friday, January 22nd at midnight (MDT) and you will be entered to win a $25 gift card to Michael's (Thanks Sue!!). If you are looking for some inspiration, have a quick turn through these creations offered up by these great gals:

Great card Tina! That image is so cute!

If only I had stamps from when I started stamping back in 1996! There are a few in my stash that are probably from about 1998 or so... I'd say the stamp I used on my challenge card was about that old

Allison said...

This is terrific! I have such trouble with some House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers...they all end up looking like blobs! Ha ha! Love that you pulled out the Blush...easily one of the best Basic Grey papers evah!
