What’s Old Is New Again!!!

by Myrna

Do any of you keep old things “just in case” you might need it again or use it for the first time??? I hope I’m not the only one. LOL I have boxes of old die cuts that I seldom use, if ever. Well, that day came and I think it is “perfect” for my card. This is one of those cards that everything I had imaged in my mind is exactly how the card turned out! Don’t you love it when that happens. I DO!! I will say I am going to have a hard time parting with this one. It is in my favorite colors of course!! It’s for a friend’s birthday at Stamp Club this Friday. I know she’ll appreciate it so it will be easier to part with it.


I love the tulip shaped die for this image!

  15. Myrna Lynn,
    Spring is here-what a perfect card to remind us all of that. The tulip pattern reminds me exactly of the pattern that I had when I was teaching-MEMORIES! Mini Tilda looks so adorable sitting on her bench that was made just for her. Her tied scarf brings back special memories too. And of course I love the orange and yellow. The added stitching just makes the card complete! Nikki and I both received a pot of blooming tulips at the Home and Garden Show in SF this year. So just have to plant the bulbs this fall, right!


  16. How fun using the flower shape for the card and lovely design and coloring on this one :o)

  17. Wow!!!! This is gorgeous – the coloring – the design work – and the clouds! It has a very dreamy quality to it – love the tulips!!
