Mo's Digital Pencil "Going Retro" Challenge PLUS 2 more...

 Good evening,
I actually got to play along with the Mo's challenge this week.  I was a busy little crafter this weekend, and got everything done that I needed to have done for this coming week, AND had time to play around too. 

So, I decided to play along with some challenges, and there are 3 challenges going on right now that this card would fit into.

First, Mo's Digital Pencil has a "Going Retro" challenge this week,
Then, The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge, "Anything Goes",
And, Cute Card Thursday's "Out with the Old" Challenge.

Now just let me say this, RETRO IS NOT MY THING....  Wow, did I ever have a hard time with it.....  The papers from Basic Gray are sort of like Retro wallpaper, that's about as far as I could go with it.....  So I hope it works!

As for Anything Goes for the Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge, this fluffy gray kitty sure looks "Fuzzy" to me, Boy I bet that kitty is heavy....  (and soft) ha ha.....  MEOW!!!!
Then.... For the "Out with the Old"  Well, You see those eyelets?  I have had those since about the very first paper craft, or scrapbook kit that I ever received... Probably a good 3-4 years ago, and THEN.... the sentiment... I created on my computer about 2 years ago, and I had found a sheet that had been printed out, and had about 4 of those sentiments left... So that is old....  THEN... and you are going to laugh....  The image itself.  Lord only knows how long ago I printed that out, and then never got around to using it...    well I used it now....  but I would have to say that probably the OLDEST thing on this card would have to be the yellow Ric-Rac....  I got that from a box of stuff that was taken out of the attic at the Private School I work at.  Considering it's a Catholic school, I can only assume it was one of the nun's things, who is no longer living.  Last summer that attic was emptied out, and we could take whatever we wished from the piles of things that were there... WELL... Lucky me, I found a whole box FULL of those little rosebuds, that are made out of ribbon, and lace, and ric-rac, and buttons, and...  and well, lets just say I came away from that place with a box a little bigger than a shoe box that was FILLED with all sorts of goodies for crafting... LOL  That box was my little jackpot from the attic at work!

Soooo, how old it is, I HAVE NO IDEA, but it's DEFINITELY OLD.

There you have it....  3 challenges with 1 card.... WOW- it's working, I've really been trying hard to find challenges to combine now and then, and I did it again.    Hmmm, wonder what other ones I'll find this week.

thanks for stopping by, and taking a peek at this card that really had me stumped, but didn't come out so bad....  =)
