I Spy With My Little Eye.........Something Old and/or Something New (Challenge No. 10)

Hello everyone and welcome to another "I Spy With My Little Eye" challenge right here on my blog. It's the last one of the year, how time flies when you're having fun, and we are so glad you stopped by today! Hope you'll join us too and share your crafty makes with us following our theme. Also be sure to scroll down to see if you were one of our top two who will be invited to join us as guest designers for the next challenge.

It's Pauline's turn to select the theme this time around and it is:

I spy with my little eye...........................

Something Old and/or Something New.

So perfect for this time of the year and I think everyone can join in wether you use something from your stash or maybe you have some new goodies to showcase. We'd love to see all your wonderful creations and you may enter up to 5 times.

Something a little different from me today, as I don't usually use die cuts as a focal point but this new to me die set was absolutely perfect for the theme and I have both something old and something new :)  My "something new" are: new baby, a new die set and baby sentiment, also the white enamel dots. Everything else I used on this card is really old, especially the patterned paper, prima flower and scalloped rectangle die. The heart string die is by Penny Black and also several years old.

I was so lucky to win a prize from Honeybee stamps through the Cat Lovers Hop and absolutely did not need any baby things, but could not resist this cute die set with my gift certificate. It's available direct from Honeybee Stamps or at, and probably other retailers as well.
