Something Old and Something New

I'm on the band-wagon for the Jingle Belles Rock Blog I'm not going to be behind come December 2016.  This is the first challenge of the new year and it's to use something old and something new. Well I didn't get anything crafty in my stocking this Christmas but I was at Michaels Art store and picked up some doilies at 60% off so I used one of the red ones in the package. Everything else is at least two years old.

The snowflake die is also new but the "sweater" background stamp I have had for a couple of years unused until this week, the image is one of a set of 4 snowmen from Sunshine Designs 5 or more years old as is the let it snow sentiment.

Close up of the doily, the snowman's hat, scarf and nose were coloured with spica glitter pens, the "fur" is white opal liquid pearls.

Love this sentiment and by the looks of it I had better fix that word People lol.

I am entering this in:
