Challenge #82 - something old, something new

Good Morning everyone!
You've really overwhelmed me with all those amazing Christmas entries in our last challenge.
As it is a busy time for me at work right before Christmas, I will be announcing the winners on Sunday... Then I also have some more time to visit all your blogs and leave some love. 

Well, it is almost Christmas now and many people I know still have to do their last-minute Christmas shopping... so I thought about a theme for the challenge that's not too hard to follow.
I want to see something old and something new on your cards... That's not too hard, isn't it? So grab all those old stamps, papers, embellishments and mix it with something new (or never used until now) and make a card/project for this challenge.
Please do state what you old and new things are though, otherwise we can't see them...

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Year's Party.
For the new year 2016 we will have some surprises for you... So come back on our January 15th challenge to hear about them.

New DT-members

I would like to thank you all who entered our DT-call. As we only had 2 spots to fill (and I've chosen 3 already), we couldn't invite all of you...
You are all fabulous crafters though!

Please welcome our new team members 

I'm Claudia and I turned just 40 (in July). I'm living in Belgium. I'm married for the past 11 years with Wim and we have 2 children. Jarno is our son (13) and Joran, our daughter is 9. I've been making cards for 3 years now. At first I was making a lot of 3D cards, then I found out about copics, gorgeous digis and crafting and never stopped doing it since then. I work part time  as an administrative assistant. I'm trilled to be part of the DT team at Creatalicious. Hugs xxx  

And here's her first card for our current challenge


I'm Dawn and I live in the UK.  I married my best friend Graham 31 years ago and we have one daughter, Amie.  We also now have two adorable grandsons who I adore.  I have been crafting for the last 25 years ever since my daughter was tiny.  I love digital stamping and have many many pencils of different varieties as well as Promarkers and a few Copics.  I work four days a week as a Monitor/Auditor within the Research & Development department at the Royal Stoke University Hospital in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire.  I am really looking forward to being a part of the Creatalicious DT .
xxxxxxxxxx

And here are the 2 cards she made for our current challenge





Mia
I'm Mia and I live in Norwich, England. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, starting with cross stitch which I learnt from both my Mum and Grandmother. I have been card making now for several years and especially love stamping (including digits) and die cutting. My blog is called 'A Little Bit Of Sparkle' because you can usually find some glitter or sparkle on my cards somewhere :) I am very happy to be on the Creatalicious Design Team and can't wait to get started!

And here's her first card for our current challenge



I am glad they're joing our team and I hope they're having a lot of fun with us

Hugs,
Melanie
