Dream Valley Challenge 40 - Something old, something new


I'm back with another DT card for Dream Valley. Our challenge this time is:

Something Old, Something New!

It was my lovely Mom's birthday this week (and, no! She isn't my something old!!!) and this is the card I made for her. A bit different from my usual style but I'm still enjoying the distress inks and inspiration that my good pal Stacey gave me :-)

My "something new" is of course my distress inks and then the gorgeous willow twigs stamp from Inkylicious (currently reduced - go and have a look!). I added a few dots of sparkle which you can see better here:

My "something old" is the "Mum" stamp which is one of papermania's relations stamps. I've had them for ages - so useful.... They've got all the "-in-law" and "step-" bits too which make them even more flexible :-)

Right, I'd better sort out the rest of the kids' school uniforms. George starts back on Wednesday and then Charlie starts nursery next week! He's too small!!! But look at this gorgeous piccie though - he can't wait to start!

Awwww! My baby!!! :-)

Right, don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley and check out all the other "Something old, something new" inspiration!

Love 'n' hugs,

wow, that's a really arty design, Mel, looks fabulous. Wish I could make cards like this, I do love the Clean and Simple look.

Hope all went well with the kid's first days back at school. Bet you are missing them already. CoB
