Something Old Something New

                                              Good Morning to you from sunny Cyprus.

As nice easy peasy challenge for you this week over at CD Sunday.......Something Old Something New from Team A and Christine's choice. She has been off to sunnier climes for the Winter. A big welcome back Christine.....keep warm.

This should be an easy one for crafters as we're always buying new stuff and we've got plenty of old unused or left over goodies from eons ago. But you might have other takes on the theme. If your mojo needs a boost pop over to CD Sunday and take a peep at what the rest of Team A have come up with to inspire you. Don't forget to be in with a chance of a lovely prize you need to use a CD on your entry and tell us which CD you've used.

Ok so what did I find in my stash that I've had for eons and what was sitting there new and unused but not unloved.

I made this card for my dog crazy grandson. The oldie I used was the border peel off around the image. Can't remember how long it's been in my stash but there was a little bit left on a sheet so I went with that. The new, was some tiny little dice buttons that I bought in a lovely button shop in Paphos.

As he'll be 12 I twisted the numbers around to show three fours but doubt whether he'll notice this!!

The image of the cute puppy is from the lilac garden. Sorry I tried to find a link for you for this site but can't. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated as they have some super decoupage sheets on this site.

The CD I used for the background paper, which matched beautifully with the blue in the image, is from 'Boys to Men' by Ooh La La. The sentiment is one I had in my stash.

Don't forget to pop over to cd sunday and take a peep at the rest of the inspiration from Team A.


  1. If your grandson is dog mad then he will love this, and I'm with you that he won't notice that the dice add up to twelve!
    A great card and I must have hundreds of peel offs that I don't use any more, maybe I should get them out!

  2. Your grandson is going to love this Wynn, your right about the peel off's, they must be one the first things i got when i started to make cards and still have a ruck of them left and still find them very handy.

  3. Aw - that dog is sooo cute. Great card. You may have to point out the numbers on the dice but if he's anything like one of my grandsons he'll have spotted it already.
    I think I may have the link for the Lilac Garden on my pc. It will be in IE which I don't use anymore but I'll have a look when I fire it up.
