Dream Valley DT card Something Old Something New

It's time for another Dream Valley Challenge! Last time the 'Steampunk' theme was rather difficult, but now we have a nice and easy Challenge that everyone will enjoy - Something Old, Something New.

It's an excuse to show off your new stuff as well as digging in your neglected stash!

I'm sure many of you will recognise the Lili of the Valley Holly Wreath from last Christmas, and also the sentiment. I coloured in the image last January when I bought the stamp, using Spectrum Noirs - apologies, I don't have the list, after all this time! The ribbon was a freebie from 'Quick Cards' and it's at least a year old!

The 'Something New' is the fabulous paper, from one of the beautiful new LotV paper pads. This gorgeous design by Laila is my favourite, because it reminds me of the fabric I used to make my children's Christmas Stockings over 20 years ago!

Have a look at my teamies' fab contributions, and have a go yourself! But please say in your post which of your materials is OLD and which is NEW!

I'm about to schedule this post (hope it works better than last time!!) because when you read it I'll be on my holibobs in the wonderful Lake District! It's now Tuesday night and I'm listening to one of my all-time favourite pieces of music, Mozart's 'Marriage of Figaro' on the Proms. Such fabulous music!

Thanks for looking, and have a great week!

love Mags B x
