MAWTT GD - Ring Out the Old, Ring In the New

Well we are nearly through the 1st week of January, how are the NY Resolutions holding up? I have to say I am finding mine slightly more easier than I thought I would. Not sure if I will still be saying that though in 6 month's time!

As it's the 1st Thursday of the month, that means it's time for me to make my GD card for MAWTT. They have decided this week to mark the New Year with a fab challenge - Ring Out the Old, Ring In the New. So we want to see old & new products on your cards. I have to say I found this a bit tricky as my family went to great lengths to make sure I didn't get any crafty bits for Christmas. Luckily I got some money so I treated myself lol!!!

The sponsor this week is Ladybug Crafts Ink & they are offering the winner a stamp of their choice.I have a mass of birthdays this month so I thought I would get cracking & use some of my challenge cards as cards for friends. I have used this motorbike stamp & most of the papers that I have had for a year now so that was easy enough for the Old. The New is the stripey paper which came from my MME pad. I have coloured the image with Promarkers & distressed my papers.
Don't forget you have until 8pm Wednesday 12th to get your entries in xx Clare x
