SFTW Out with the old or "handbags and gladrags"

Well hello there my dear friends I do hope you are all well today! I have a little news for you that goes along with my challenge card toady for Stampin for the weekend. Our dear leader Jan has had to give up her crafting due to family issues and could no longer continue to run the SFTW blog so guess who gets to take over?..... Yes it's me! I know I'm going to be super busy but I couldn't let such a successful blog with a fabulous DT close now could I?!
Well our challenge for you for the next 2 wks is out with the old so we want you to use stash from last year. Strictly speaking that could still mean stash you got for christmas as that was last year!
We are sponsored by the super fab LOTV and you have a chance to win a £10 gift voucher to the store!
Of course I must have had some flower withdrawl having only put 1 on my last card so I sort of made up for it here (tee hee!)
My old stash are these fun papers from Fancy pants beach babe pad that I won in a candy last year. I have teamed them with the most wonderful Saturated Canary image (what again?!) and have added most of the store from WOC! along with those pretty butterflies at Little snippets and some pearls and cheesecloth from stash. My fabulous sentiment is from stempelglede (which are virtually impossible to get in this country right now I had to send for them from abroad!)
My image is one of a set of 2 from SC and I love them both soooo much they are just a little more grown up and funky and this one reminds me of my 11 yr old daughter with long wavy hair and a growing eye for fashion and mobile phones!
Krista is working on some new images too and I am so desperate to get my hands on them! Those of you who are on a stash diet for the new yr had better stay away from her store lol!
She has been coloured ala prisma pencils and I have edged in vintage photo distress ink.
I would like to enter this into Simon says stamp spots and/or stripes, Wild orchid crafts anything goes and top tip tues anything goes.
Please do check out the rest of the teams creations and make sure you join us this time too!
Big hugs to you all, thanks so much for coming by to pay me a visit today!

First of all this is so beautiful and just simply sweet. I Love the pink and yellow color scheme and OHMYGOSH..... look at all those flowers. I love them. I am awaiting my arrival of my Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and I ordered a bunch. I have been using what I have sparingly, as I am about to run out. Maybe I just need to come to your house. LOL!!! I think that would be a LONG trip, don't you..
I really love all of Krista images and can't wait for some new ones even though I still have a TON I haven't even printed out yet.
