Golden oldies......

Welome daring Friday fellow darers ! Thank you so much for all your contributions to both Rhi's journal dare and this weeks Little extra, 'I do - with a twist'.

We really enjoyed seeing what you all thought up for the dares, thank you so much for joining in.

NOW ! - on to this weeks dare - we have a team dare this week, and we were thinking.....with so many new things /latest papers/ trendy stuff constantly coming on the market, we thought it would be nice to have a look back, and dig out some of our 'old' papers and embellishments and make a card with our 'preloved' treasures. I think the tendency these days is to get on the 'latest must have' band wagon, sometimes, its nice to recognise what we already have- even if it isn't the 'latest' embellishment/paper.

Here's a few lovely designs from our design team- a little trip down memory lane........of the card making world !

Don't forget to leave us a link to your card, so we can pop along and have a look at
your wonderful creations !

Thanks to all who take part in our weekly dares, we do appreciate all your hard work and thank you for your support. :)

I try to use up my old papers and embellishments as often as I can and usually use what I like rather than what is in fashion at the time (although I usually like what is in fashion anyway!!). Today I downloaded the Pink Petticoat Hoppy Wishes (both for him and for her) and made my first card with one of the gorgeous little frogs using papers that came free with a magazine at least a year ago maybe 18 months or more and some sticky ribbons I bought over a year ago too! There is a picture on my blog of it so hope you like my brand new image that I bought today with papers and ribbons that have been sat in my drawer for so long!

Kathy;s card is brilliantly stunning. It takes a lot of creativity and innovation to do something like this.
Additionally, it takes alot of patients to execute something of such quality. Lovely detail, Beautiful colors, and perfect positioning of all elements on the card.
A Card such as this, without the patience and creativity that Kathy possesses, would look messy if it wasnt done in a perfect manner.

Its beautiful!
