Out with the old....

Well at stampin' for the weekend we are back from our Christmas break and raring to go !

This week it was the turn of Chris to choose our theme and she chose "out with the old" so we want to see you using old supplies - although you can use some of your new stash too !

This week we are sponsored by the fab Lily of the valley who is offering the winner a £10 voucher !
I went to my scraps drawer and found these paper strips from the Echo park summer days pad. Of course I had to use a whole sheet as the back DP too ! I love these sunny, fun papers and thought they'd be perfect for a valentines card.

My image is a digi from broken box designs (you can get it here) I paper pieced the image with more scraps and mounted it onto a circle then a scalloped circle die cut(s).

The ribbons (yes there are 2 if you look closely) are also old stash from the bottom of my ribbon box but that yummy bling swirl is new - a Christmas pressie from my Mum & dad - thanks xx

I hope you like it and that you will join in and play along with us this week @ stampin' for the weekend x

Sweet stamps challenge - Hearts (T)
