Challenge #369 - Bring Something Back

Hey LIMettes! 

We're back with our latest challenge which is Theme Week and we'd like you to 'Bring Something Back'! You might decide to use a technique that you haven't used in a long time or a stamp / die set that's not seen the light of day in a while, alternatively dig deep in your stash for something that you can add that's 'gone out of fashion' - we've all got some of those items lurking eh!

Just so long as you keep your cards Clean and Simple with lots of blank 'white' space it's good for us.

Here's the Cue Card, which we'd love you to display in your blog post

We're joined today by 2 of our previous challenge winners, who are guest designing for the challenge; Cara of Crafting Bunnies (random winner in January) and Sue of Sentimentally Sue (our February winner). Do pop along and visit their blogs during the challenge, we're sure you'll find masses of inspiration.

To be eligible for ShowCASe and Prize Winner choices please carefully follow all of our Clean & Simple Challenge Guidelines plus Glossary of Terms, which you'll find via our 'How To Play' tab at the top of the page. Your designs should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non-patterned space.

Now let's see what fantastic inspiration our Guest Designers and the design team have created for you and do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!

  1. Thank you all so much - I adored this challenge - it took me down Memory Lane to 2005 and all the memories of that time when I lived in the US. I found lots of old friends in my cupboards - I hope you like my card.

  2. Great theme as always. I took my old Magnolia stamps and made a card with it. Have a nice weekend, Ankie

  3. Some wonderful cards from the DT. Loving this challenge - it's made me look at some older stamp sets with new eyes!

  4. Love this challenge, its really amazing

  5. Such a unique challenge and great trip down memory lane to see your cards and those in the gallery! Fun idea!! Hugs, Darnell
