Sisterhood Challenge - Something Old, Something New

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to the 1st Sisterhood challenge of the new year!
Today LisaB is our hostess and she's ask us to use 'Something Old and Something New' ... what fun!

This was an easy challenge for me since I've been going crazy lately and have several NEW items and of course I have a crafting cave filled with OLD stuff.  I need to start using more of the OLD (that I've forgotten about) and quit buying so much NEW ... at least for a little while maybe!  LOL!

While creating today's card I was actually able to utilize a few items that have been laying on my work table.  I always seem to have a lot of 'bits and pieces' laying around that either I've die cut, colored or whatever ... for other projects, but then switched gears and went a different direction.

Those particular items today are the Frantic Stamper 'Silhouette Kids' (FRA-DIE-09696) and the colorful panel I created several months ago using Ken Oliver Color Bursts.  I've die cut the kids twice to have a 'shadow' affect and even thought the sentiments are two different dies they work perfectly together.

To be specific, my OLD is the BoBunny design paper and my NEW are the dies. 
(Well, a couple of them anyways, lol)

I hope you'll come join in on the fun!
We'd love to see what new crafting goodies Santa brought you 
(or maybe you got in on some fabulous sales over the holiday!)

Love those Sue Wilson dies, and the kids are so adorable. With the white edge it looks like they're backlit. Cool! I always have lots of parts laying around from switching gears, too.
