Bah Humbug - Guest Designer week 4 - Oldie but Goldie -

Firstly, It has been good to hear that Max is home after her Op. - Sending Gentle {hugs} to You Max. Wishing you a speedy recovery. I very much hope soon the pain subsides. Thoughts too go over to Irene, who sadly is still not well enough to join in,  Thinking of you and Gentle {hugs} to you Irene.

The ladies at Bah Humbug have come up with another fab. challenge. We are now entering into Challenge 4
An oldie but a goldie (using something that you've had in your craft stash for a long time but that you love
I knew straight away what items I would be using - just had to decide 'how' My oldie but goldie are my Rollograph wheels, Alcohol Inks and a RS I have had in my crafty stash for a very long time and totally love. I have used the fab. sponges the lovely Max sent me  - they are great for making 'rainbow' type backgrounds using Alcohol inks - I just 'swirled' the sponge around onto the glossy card - in fact it is the plain side of a printed Ad. type postcard - I  used my 'swirl and stars' rollagraph over the alcohol inked background, added some 'cranberry' embossing powder and heat embossed.  The Rubber Stampede Santa Collage RS was stamped using Brilliance ink then clear embossing powder, again, heat embossed.

Here is my card for this weeks fab. theme 'An Oldie but a Goldie' I am not quite sure - I may at a later date add  Flourishes/photo corner/card candy -  I decided that I would add the corner adornments - No time like the present, as they say. Apologies to the Bah Humbug Ladies .. hoping that I havn't caused any problems with the   last minute 'tweeking'

I hope you will agree that the card now looks more

The 'Dinky buckle' is made from a set of Dies I purchased very
recently, Pinky Dinky Dies by Karen Foster, sadly now discontined.
They work wonderfully in my 'Big Shot'
