Dream Valley Challenge 7 - Something Old and Something New....

Phew! What a week with our poor, old blogger, eh? Hopefully things have settled down now so we can get cracking with the new challenge at Dream Valley. This time we're looking for Something old and something new!  Who hasn't got something old and something new hidden in their stash?!?

We're being sponsored by the fabulous Digi's with Attitude who gave us some fab images to work with although this time I'm actually using Gardener Tween which is this month's freebie (my something new!) and available to download here! Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog will also know that I've recently got myself an allotment so this little lady is right up my street!

I printed the sentiment on my pc. The papers are from the first pad of paper I ever bought - Papermania's Retro Floral. Goodness knows how old they are!!!  They are definitely my something old :-) I've also had the brads and buttons for aaaages and just had to use an old piece of gardening string I'd found!

Then I decorated the inside so I could show you the rest of the sentiment.....

Hope you like! Please pop over to see the gorgeous inspiration put together by the rest of the DT.

Oh Mel, I adore this! Is that you on your allotment? You must have been making cards longer than I have cos I don't remember that paper pack at all. Love the sentiment, the inked edges and the fact that you've decorated the inside too., CoB
