Something Old/Something New

Happy New Years everyone!!  I hope everyone had a fun Christmas and New Year.   My week was very busy so I didn't get everything done that I had hoped to but it was nice to have time off from work to spend with family.  I have another week off in January and hope to get more stamping done on that vacation.

Now that the Holiday's are behind us we are back to the weekly challenges with Going Grey with Scrap-Creations . I am glad to get started again.  To start off the new year we have a fun and easy challenge.  The theme is Something Old and Something New.  We all have that stash that we say we are going to use and we all have those new stamps/paper/die cuts that we had to have or got for Christmas.  We are asking that you use both on your project.  Most of my card is old but I used one of my new stamps from Saturated Canary.  These are so much fun to color.

Also we are going to be looking for 2 new DT's at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  Do you want to join the fun?  We have a great group of people and it is a pleasure to be part of this challenge every week.  Kristen will be posting the requirements tomorrow so if you want to join us please watch for her announcement.
