Something Old, Something new!!

Welcome today is the day of the ILWS Retired Stampin up BLOG HOP!!




You could have arrived here from my fabbi upline Natalie O'shea wonderfulness there dont you think!!

Well thankyou for popping over to me, below is the link to the next blog...



I am sad this year to see many of my favourites go, see this is what happens when you admire from afar, plonk it on your wish list and think oh I'll get that next time............ I soooo wanted to stock up on the jumbo eyelets, but they have gone for forever!! I can't believe that.....



Well enough of me lets get onto the creations you have come for, This card was well and truly Teanealed, I cased it from the fabulous Teanele a Stampin up demo from Austrailia, wow to have such talent!!









Anyways, I have teamed up old with new!!

The now old and retiring Because I care level one hostess set, such a fabulous set for all occasssions, and the something to celebrate level two hostess set, you can still get them , get your friends together show them your catty and take some orders and give me a shout I will do the rest!!! No need to have a party, but you can still get the benefits!!





I have used the new French foliage a fave of Teaneles and mine....... Along with this years in colours, Pear Pizazz and Poppy Parade and real lush oranganey colour! I used the ink pads and watercolour brush to colour, I embossed the flower for more defination...


Here is a real quick and simple card it uses the two most favourite of mine, retiring items I will miss the most, The Sanded background and the Jumbo Eyelets, as well as the sail away and of course retired DSP Newspaper...


I will soooo not be letting go of my sanded stamp never ever!!



Pop next onto the lovely Caroline Skinner HERE and see what delights she has for you!!
