Something Old, Something New ...

Well here we are with a brand new year, and here I am with my first card of 2012. 

This card fulfils the theme of "Something Old, Something New", which I thought was a good theme for the start of a new Year ... the "something old" is my papers which I have had for quite a long time; whilst the "something new" is the darling LotV stamp which my dear friend Lil gave me when I went round to her house for a pre-Christmas visit and to admire her craft room, as she had got this stamp twice and thought of me first to pass it on to - thanks so much hun :-) !!

Stamps: LotV "Rosie Posy";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; glamour dust on flowers and edges of matting;
Papers: Papermania "Rose Garden";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; lace from The Ribbon Box; buttons and peel offs from my stash.
