Summer Holidays

Today we welcome Helen as the latest DT member to An Oldie But A Goodie design team.
- Lovely to have you on board Helen & I hope you enjoy being in the team as much as I do.

At the end of this week, Scottish Schools break for their Summer Holidays, and this year its a 7 week break. Sadly in true Scottish school holiday tradition, the weather is rather disappointing - hopefully at some point over the next 7 weeks the sun will make an appearance though!

So with Summer Holidays in mind, Laurie as set the next Oldie But Goodie challenge with that as the theme. So it's up to you how you interpret the theme, you can use either rubber or digital stamps, just remember and tell us what "Oldie" you used on your card. In my case it was the pearls & ribbon - bought over a year ago.

... and the prize this time around is 5 digi's of your choice from Robyn's Fetish & more.

So this card ticks the Summer Holiday box for a me for a number of reasons. Firstly, the stamp used was released for sale last year while I was on summer holiday in Germany, and I posted an on line order for it from the hotel computer. As is the case so often, those must have stamps arrive and then sit about for ages before use. To my shame this is it's first use! It's also an image of a girl relaxing to her music - something which would be quite nice to do while on summer holiday, so that's the reasons behind the card.

The Sugar Bowl - Great Sketch
Allsorts - Any Die Will Do

Janice I'm sorry its taken me so long to get here to comment - I'm two days behind this week!
You made me laugh so much with your comment, maybe I should check all my cupboards as when they were younger it felt like I had more kids than what I seem to have now and I might have left a couple in there!
I love your card this week, the blue nad white is so fresh looking and that image is rather fabulous Mrs!
Hugs Laurie xx
