New Beginnings

Today see's the launch of a brand new challenge blog "Oldie But A Goodie" . If you, like most of us have a stash of old stamps gathering dust, then this is the place to come. There will be a new challenge every other Tuesday and you can combine it with as many other challenges as you like, as long as the main image is stamped and at least 6 months old. You can make anything you like, a Card, ATC, L/O etc, as long as it fits in with the challenge.
Our first theme is:
New Beginnings
This can be anything from a new baby ,wedding, new friend new neighbour or even a new school.

This is my creation for the first challenge "New Beginnings", I have used the very first stamp I ever bought, luckily it fit in with the theme, I don't know the brand as it was from E-bay and I only paid £3 and that was including postage.

There is a wonderful Design Team who have done some incredible creations. Our Guest Designer is none other than the lovely Bev, and her creation is gorgeous.

This is also for:-

1. Allsorts - week 68 - New Beginnings

2. Stamp Something - Something cute

3. Crafty catz - challenge # 48 - Recipe (3 embellies - flowers, ribbon, nappy pin, 2 papers 1 image)

4. Incy Wincy Designs - challenge 58 - Celebrate (this is to celebrate a birth)

Please come and show us some support and join in, it would really be appreciated

Have a good day

Happy crafting
