How old?!

 Good morning blogworld

I'm here today with my card for the new challenge over at Sweet Stampin', the theme of the challenge this fortnight is Use your older stash, so nothing too new please!  As always we accept any project but as, with the clue in the title, it's a stamping challenge so please use either rubber or digital stamps somewhere.

Now I'm sure you know I had a very long break from crafting and, although I have brought new stash since I re-joined the hobby, a lot (and I mean a lot) of my stuff is ages old - so, for me, this was a very easy challenge. I just had to decide which stamp to pick! That was helped by wanting to try and create an underwater scene, I don't think it's bad for a first attempt but does look like rain to me!!


Supplies used:

Rubber stamps:
Sugar Nellie - Oceans Gift (maybe a 2012/15? stamp something like that)
image coloured with Copics and does not come with the background - I created that freehand.
Sentiment: taylored expressions: Oh My Word - Happy Birthday

Bo Bunny - County Garden Collection

Anything else?
HobbyHouse for the pearls
scrap of pink metallic card for the mount
Woodware corner rounder punch

So the newest thing on my list is the sentiment stamp and that's got to be either a year or 8 months old, I think - everything else is going to be at least 8 or 9 years old.  See - an easy challenge for me!!

I do hope you all get the time to dig through your older stash, stamp something, make something and come join in! It will be fun!!  My Teamies have made some fabulous inspiration cards, as always, and we're all looking forward to going through your stash collection!!

Signing off now,
See you soon,
