*Everything Old Is New Again*

Hi Everyone!  I'm excited to be a part of a new Challenge that's out on the blogosphere this morning...  here's the details!

About a week ago, Sue posted a card with a long forgotten stamp set. Allison commented that they should have a challenge where they created cards with a stamp or a stamp set that they 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 of their personal stamp friends (PSFs), they 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:

Nancy (hey,that's me!)

This is the card I created for the challenge... and I gotta tell ya, I really like it!
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  PaperTreyInk White; Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip
*Patterned Paper:  Memory Box
*Images:  Magenta; PaperTreyInk Mega Mixed Messages
*Ink:  Copic Markers; Coffee Bean Brilliance
*Tools:  Big Shot; Nestabilities
*Challenges:  Everything Old Is New Again; Mojo121; C4C19

I spent a lot of time colouring this image, taking my time with my Copics.  And I love how it turned out.  This is one of those images that I had to have years ago, made by a wonderful Canadian company called Magenta.  I still love it... I think I just got tired of playing with it.

Thanks for the challenge ladies!!

I can't wait to see what others come up with!
