ODBDSLC43 Something New~ Something Old

Hello All!! I hope everyone had a Happy New Year and is excited to get back into stamping!! I really enjoyed family time and the holidays but now am enjoying getting back into crafting and somewhat of a normal routine again.

Today is the first challenge for the year at Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge.  If you missed our last winner's post, you may not know that we have two new players.  The ever so talented and sweet Silke Ledlow is back as a challenge team member for Our Daily Bread Designs!! Welcome back Silke!! We are doubly blessed since the ever so sweet and inspiring Pat Smethers will be joining us as a guest for the next two months.  Welcome aboard Pat!! We are so excited to have them join us!!!!

This week's Challenge:
A new year has begun and an old year has ended....use something new and something old from your stash.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize , a $ 15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, January 13. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not submit more than once.  Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not qualify for comments or prizes.

Nice challenge! :)
Just wanted to suggest something to you guys... about McLinky... it does have a thumbnail option that will work like the old Inlinkz and will show up captions from the blogs that are being submitted :)

Keep up the good work!

The cards are lovely! Great work! I wanted to let you know that I erred when submitting my card the first time (line 48) and it won't let me delete it. I resubmitted with my name as #49. So sorry for the inconvenience! Blessings!

Well, I meant to be inspired by my namesake Sabrina and use some old chipboard, but I ended up going somewhere else.

Cook22 said...

Oops - like Jan I made a wrong submission. The wrong link must still have been in my clipboard, and not being able to see the thumbnail I didn't realise till Chris commented on the wrong one.
I've re-posted my real old and new ODBD card now as post #58.
The wrong link was something old and something new, but it wasn't made for this challenge. Sorry!

OOPs, I didn't get the linky link right and #69 is not a valid post. I figured it out and #70 took the address. Sorry about the bother for you.
