{ Everything Old is New Again }

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

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 for 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 to Sue!). If you are looking for some inspiration, have a quick turn through these creations offered up by some great gals:


I decided to pull out a VERY old SU set(In The Wild) I honestly think I only used this set maybe once or twice. I have been seriously debating on whether it is time to let it go to a new home where it might see some more ink...but I keep hanging onto it for some reason. What do you think? Should I continue to hang onto it? The sentiment was an old RAK that I received long ago as well, that has only seen ink maybe once.

I hope you decide to join us in this Challenge. It is one that I think ALL stampers can use! We ALL have stamps that have collected come on admit it! ;0)

Okay...I will be back soon with another post for the first Christmas Card Challenge for 2010!! Woohoo!

I love your card. And I love this set. I bought it on Ebay after it retired. I've only used it once but will keep it just because the images stamp so beautifully. You did a fabulous job!

Oh my gosh, I love this. The muted tones and the image are perfection.

Sounds like a fun challenge for you all. Your elephant card is fabulous, the soft color is perfect with the image.

This is a the soft palette! Andrea bought this just before it retired for this image alone...who knows, maybe it will be one of those ebay treasures!

This sounds great! Now that I have my stamps out and in place (I think) I think I can definitely play along. This weekend is a bit of a crap shoot with the tournament but I know I have some free time this week - shocking I know! So I think I might have a go!!

Love the card!
