SCSBG2 Challenge - Something Old, Something New

Coffee of the Day - Spiced Ginger Latte`

I am hostessing the challenge for the SplitCoast Stampers Bloggers Group #2 this go 'round. What fun to come up with an idea for creating! As I was driving around last week, I came up with this idea. Sure hope everyone has fun with it - I know I did!

The challenge this time is to use something old and something new on your creation. you know you have those old beauties hiding in your closet somewhere just begging to be used again, or maybe for the first time ever! I am almost ashamed to say that I actually had to remove the plastic wrap from the ink pad of SU! Cool Carribean that I used on this card. yep, hangin' my head over that one! it is such a gorgeous color, but I had never ONCE opened it! and my poor Night of Navy hasn't been used in over a year on ANYTHING!!! it used to be one of all time fave 'go to' colors! what is up with THAT?!?! My something new is the stamp, Jewel Bird from Inkadinkado, and the papers, Addison line from K & Co. I guess you could say that the old could also be the lace since it is vintage! ;) Anyhow, as I was planning what to do for this challenge, I came to the realization that I have way toooooo many things that I haven't used recently the way that I should. guess that means I have to stamp more!!! :D

We have 6" to 10" of snow forecast in the next 24 hours. Think that will give me plenty of 'stay inside and stamp' time. Good thing I love the snow so much! It is obviously still winter here in NE Ohio!

Had a great time at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday! They don't allow photos of any kind taken inside, so there is only this one from outside the building. It was soooo windy and only in the upper 30's, so it was colllllld. What a thrill to see so many cool pieces of memorabillia! Of course the Elvis stuff just blew me away! that and Bob Marley's shirt. go figure..... I'm a pretty eclectic person!

Have a great day and stay warm!!

What a great challenge Jennifer, I have way too many things sitting in my closet that haven't been used.
