Something Old/Something New EAD Designs blog hop

  Welcome to the monthly EAD Designs blog hop!  Sadly, EAD Designs closed it's doors a little over a year ago, but there are still plenty of EAD fans and hoarders of EAD stickerz, rub-ons, and vinyl.

  Our hop theme:  something old and something new

  This was easy for me!  My newest stash is my January 2014 Artful Delight card kit.  All of my papers and card stock for this card came from the kit.  My old stash: the "True Love" EAD circular sticker, the MME twine, my embossing folder, and distress inks.

  My card was completely inspired by this lovely Lesley Croghan sketch:

  This also fits the monthly challenge at Ribbon Carousel:  Love, Birthdays, and Chicken Soup, the weekly challenge at Shopping Our Stash:  Use Something New, and the weekly challenge at Pumpkin Spice:  Use Holiday Papers.

  You could win some crafty supplies (sorry, not EAD stash) if you hop along the way and leave a comment...the more you comment, the greater your chances of winning.  You have until Saturday  January 18th @ 11:59pm PST to leave a comment and a chance to win.  Winners will be announced on Monday, January 20th 12am PST.  Julie S. is giving away prizes plus TWO more gals (they are keeping it a secret), so comment away.  I hope you win!

Supplies:
EAD Designs stickerz:  "True Love" circular sticker
paper:  Pebbles "Yours Truly" collection and Bazzill card stock (January 2014 Artful Delight card kit)
twine:  My Mind's Eye Happy Go Lucky "Together"
Cuttlebug embossing folder:  Victoria
inks:  Tim Holtz Wild Honey and Vintage Photo
doily dies:  Big Shot large doily dies (Stampin' Up!)

You do the nicest things with your kits! I still can't justify them for me (she says, still digging through boxes of crafty stuff). I love how you guys won't let EAD designs die!

Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!

I really like the layering on your card. It looks very vintage, but cheery because of the brighter colors - perfect for a valentine! Robin
