Raise the Bar - Gdt Card + challenges



I was absolutely delighted to have won the Debut challenge over at Joni's Raise The Bar - and to be given the opportunity to Tend the Bar this week and design a card for Challenge 3 which has the great name of THE OLDER THE BETTER: The idea is to use some of your old stash that has been hidden for ages in a cupboard or drawer somewhere. The only thing newish on my card is the Sugar Nellie stamp and the lace. The papers were bought for last years Valentine cards, the ribbon has been in my scrap ribbon box for I don't know how long. The rose again is way last year and the buttons, I can't even remember buying them.

Do pop over and join in the fun there is a wonderful design team with some gorgeous eye candy to inspire you.

Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you had a nice stay and that you'll come back to visit me again soon.
