Going Grey with Scrap-Creations: Something old, something new

Happy New Year!!!! Yes, we have been on break for the last two weeks, but we are BACK with a new challenge every Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a VERY happy New year.  Did Santa bring you everything you wished for????  If you remember, I was curious about the Copic carrying case, and well, I got it. I wish I could tell you how much I LOVE it, but I didn't and I decided it was to much like a luggage and not what I was really looking for. The good news though, I returned it and pre ordered the 12 new colors.  I can't wait to play....hehehe..... anyways, I had a wonderful Christmas. Spent much needed time with my family and we had a great weeek together, baking, bowling, the movies, board games, and so much more. It is so nice to be out of school resting and catching up with life!!! I have even been stamping and scrapbooking...wahoooo...Even better, I don't go back to school till the 23rd of Jan, and then only 16 weeks until I graduate as a RN. Can you see the light??? I can...FINALLY!!!!!
   Ahhh pastels......yeap, I used pastels for this weeks challenge. Have I decided I like pastels??? NOPE, I am still not a fan, but I made my card for this weeks challenge with a special someone in mind, and that someone REALLY likes pastels, loves purples and blues, and LOVES snowmen, and that special someones Birthday is January 7th.....that special someone is Mary Castonquay....Happy Birthday Mary, I hope you love your card!  Once again, I made it with little embellishments, so I can mail it.  Are you ready to find out what the challenge is????? ok, ok.....this weeks challenge is Something Old and SOmething New. This was easy for me because I just bought the Memory Box snowglobe die and I used some old DP that I had, and there you have it, CHALLENGE CARD!

With a New Year, there are always changes, and sadly, we have lost 2 team members as of the first of the year.  Jackie Randolph and Frances Rodriquez have left the DT due to life issues and they are both going to be very much missed, and with that, leaves us 2 open spots on our DT.....Wanna join???? If you are interested, I will be opening up a DT call on Wednesday with all the details. Hope to see you there )
So, I know our last challenge was a while ago, but I have not forgotten about the last challenges TOP 3, and they are:
