Something old, Something new...

To explain, 'Something old, Something new' is the new challenge at Sweet Stampin this week. Basically, we'd like you to use one of your newest purchases (don't try & tell me there aren't any lol!) & combine it with something you've had in your stash for ages, you know those things that sit neglected as the new stash comes in. 

My something old are the bronze baby embellishments, I bought them in a craft sales ages ago and I've never had cause to use them, and my something new is baby Charlie who I've made this card for, well actually my good friends Jane & Aaron who are now proud new parents, (if this doesn't count then its my new nesties) (can't remember the name as the packaging went out in the recycling this morning!?).

Before I forget, our monthly and weekly sponsors are Prairie Fairy Designs and Bugaboo Stamps both are offering fabby prizes as usual, so come on and join in the fun!!!

The challenges I'm entering little Edwin into are:
Stampin for the Weekend #11 - My fav things - magnolia stamps, babies, nestabilities dies, the colour combo pale blue & Chocolate
Totally Gorjuss #86 - Ribbon & Lace
Totally Papercrafts#72 - Spots & Stripes
Simon says stamp & show - some metal - metal embellishments
Lollipop Crafts - inspired by a song - John Lennon--"Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)"

  12. Thank you for all your lovely comments, i love reading them all and in answer to Abi's question, yes i do still have feet, slightly smoother tho! It was the weirdest feeling but strangely relaxing, 10 mins certainly wasn't long enough. Mum enjoyed it too, which was the main thing. She's also had some good test results from the hospital today, so after a two week break, she's ok to start another course of treatment and then she'll have a scan. Fingers tightly crossed that the stinky cancer has shrunk!!!
