Just a quick reminder that we are looking for some Guest Designers to join us for a few weeks. To apply all we ask you to do is enter this weeks challenge and add GDT to your name in your link up. We are looking for people of varying skills so please don’t think you are not good enough. Come on, give it a go, what have you got to lose? It is a fabulous, friendly and supportive team to be a part of so if you love Nikky’s work and can make one card a week for two to four weeks then let us know!

Now onto this week business...
We have a Special Discount code for you to use this week - you can find it at the end of this post!
We are all living in the moment it seems now and we are always on the lookout for NEW but sometimes we forget that the old ones are the best! 
So yes, we decided this week the theme would be
 Something Old
You could use an old collection, or an old stamp that you have had for ages and haven't used in a while, a piece of old ribbon, an old button, anything you like....
Rummage through your older stash and you'll be surprised at what you forgot you had!!!! 
I think we are all guilty of that - aren't we!?
You can make anything you like maybe a card, a scrapbook layout of even home d├ęcor. 
You can use any products you like to enter as long as it follows the theme for this week. We don’t have many rules but check them out in the side bar if you need to.

It's time to see what the design team have uncovered in their stash and see what they have made for us....

Ria-  Hi, I am jumping in as Guest this week and I used the Cherry Blossom Lane collection for my card. I coloured my image with pencils. I so adore the soft colours in this collection.

NazThe stamp I decided to use for this project is called OCTAVIA BIRD IN THE HAND.
Some of the papers I have used for this card as well as the sentiment are also from Polkadoodles.
I absolutely adore this stamp "believe in all your dreams" - What a beautiful sentiment. I thought the sentiment fits well with the image.

Jenny - Hello there I'm here again as a guest on this great team. This challenge is to use an old collection so what else could I use but Dollie Goes East, one of my favourite collections.  I have used a pre-coloured image and three papers from the collection and just one sentiment, don't know how I restrained myself!
Scatty Jan  Ohhhh a lovely easy challenge for me as I love using bits and bobs from the older collections , I always find some right gems on them. I decided this time to use my most loved and treasured  Bonbon Belles, but using a character I had not used before (at least I dont think I have) Pirate Jack, I have coloured him with Graph'It Markers, and added glamour dust to his sword. The Boat was cut on my portrait adding some stickles for the water. The cute little fish, treasure chest, Octopus and balloon all from Bonbon Belles (added a touch of gold stickles to the chest)

Monica- For this project, I wanted to use an old collection but new to me. So I chose Baby Boom Bundle and a tree from Picknix 1 In the Garden. I used the stunning precoloured images from both collections.
Tanya - There are some absolutely fabby-do-dah collections in the Polkadoodles shop and it was really hard trying to choose one but this week as schools will be breaking up in the next week or so I’ve decided to use the teacher digi and the matching papers, embellishments and sentiments from Work& Play Collection 3 to make a teacher thank you card in a stepper style card.  More details can be found on my blog (and you still have time to enter my giveaway from last week’s post)
Caz  For my use old collection, I decided to use Baby Boom Bundle download. Everything I have used is from this collection, except card shape and words, which was cut on my silhouette portrait.

Lynda: It was so hard to pick an older collections to use this week, there all so amazing :-)  In the end I chose to use Work & Play 2. The papers (except the cloud paper) flower embellishments, sentiment and digi stamp are all from this collection It available as digital download or on a CD. Have fun xx 
Emma - For this challenge I have used Winston Bear Etty's New Dress that can be found Here, I have cut her out & decoupaged her. I have fussily cut out the flowers & embellishments which can all be found in the full Winston Collection Here as a download or Here on CD.
Yvonne - Hi everyone - I opted to use 'Amelia Roses' from the Pretty Sweet Collection. The image I used can be found here, or you can see the range of the Pretty Sweet girls here. You can also get it as a CD-Rom if you wish.  I made a step card and coloured Ameila with my polychromo pencils. The papers are from the Serenity Collection - I know they aren't old but I seem to be incapable of making anything that doesn't involve the Serenity Collection! 

 Jane - Hi everyone! The older collection that I chose to use is WORK AND PLAY 1 featuring the fabulously cute FIREMAN JIM who is also available in a clear stamp HERE if you prefer! I decorated a premade Kraft crate to make it look like a house on fire and so our lovely Jim is coming to the rescue!! Go Jim!! Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Wendy - For this weeks old collection theme, I've gone back to the Pretty Tuff collection. The boy is available as a digi here and the door, sentiment & both papers are part of the CD collection. I've used Graph'Its to color both images.
AnjieI've used the old but fabulous Picknix Gingerbread Twist Collection. This really is one of my fave collections!
