I finally got another chance to play in the Everything Old is New Again challenge this week. Play a visit here and get the deets. This week's challenge was to use an unloved color (except in the fall usually) - ORANGE - along with an old stamp. I actually made two cards for this one, but my anniversary card uses the very first NEW Stampin' Up! set I ever purchased - Doodle This. I had a bunch of old ones that I picked up on eBay, but I got this at the very first SU party I attended. I don't know what this says about me, but it was still unmounted! I love it though and now that it's al nice and mounted, hopefully I'll get some use out of it! I hope that Apricot Appeal counts as orange!

Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary and I made this card to give to dh to say "thanks" for 26 wonderful years! If I can manage it, tomorrow's post will be putting down some of the thoughts that are running through my head on this occasion. Right now I have to get ready for a visit from the grandchildren! Tomorrow is mommy's birthday and she and daddy are having a night out tonight while gp and gm have fun with the kiddos.

The second card was made just playing with some of the scraps from the first card!

Thanks so much for visiting today!
