HELLO - Something Old Something New with H2H...

Happy NEW YEAR from Heart 2 Heart Challenges!!!

We had a nice little Christmas break and are jumping right back in with a challenge of Something Old Something New! There can be tons of interpretations for this challenge but I chose to do the card below...

The random-stamped background of circles is pretty old...I'm thinking at least 4 years old if not 6. I stamped this background after seeing some paper at Hobby Lobby that I liked. Back then all I had was the three boys (and my husband, if he counts...lol) so it was hard to find cute, masculine paper.

---------------------------------------
The "something new" on my project comes in at the bottom....the HELLO is from this month's SOTM, In This Moment...the shine marks at the left and right as well as the heart in the center of the "O" is from the NEW You're The Bomb stamp set that benefits Operation Smile. I also added one of our NEW Happy Day Mini-Clothespins and tied some old Chocolate Embroidery Thread around it.
----------------------------------------------------
Here's a peek at the inside...

That's it for me, folks!!!

I hope you'll take the time to go check out the other H2H DT Members and their blogs...we have 2 new DT Members this go 'round so be sure to go leave them some LOVE!

Your work always catches my eye when I'm Googling for inspiration. This vibrant card is no exception. I don't make many cards but when I do I'm sure this will inspire me -- it seems easy and yet it's so striking!

Somehow I knew this card was yours. It is a cool paper you made.

I recognize the old stamp sets... from many years back! Nice to see the current SOTM being used in a non-traditional way as well :) LOVE it!
