Inventory Reduction Challenge # 64 - An Old Maggie Image

Well, a good, good morning to you all!  We have had several days of unseasonably warm weather here in good old western New York.  We can handle this very easily, unless you own a ski lodge.  Then there's a problem.

ETA: I woke up to 1-1/2 " of blowing, drifting snow this morning. I'm sorry WNY for saying how nice it's been:(

This week our inventory reduction challenge is to use an old Maggie image.  I don't remember what my first few Maggies were.  So I used some of the older ones from the stamp collections files.

I used the Lap Tilda from Spring 2008, Tilda's Birds from 2008 Spring/Summer, Rufus and Shabby Chic Fence from 2008 Shabby Chic Summer, and Tilda's Wall from 2008 Magnolia & Lilac Summer.  They created a really cute scene, I think.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia.  The background paper is from Webster's Pages Winter Fairy Tales.

The inside of this card is sort of Blah!  I used older papers and very much older ribbon.
The cutting die is from My Favorite Things Die-namics Dizzy Doily.  Ssshhhhh!!! Don't tell anyone - it is new!  The sentiment is from a Gina K set Tree Silhouettes given to me by my friend Kim Marie about 4 years ago.

That's it for tonight! Hope you enjoyed this "Oldie".  Looking through those old Collections catalogs reminded me of so many of the stamps I have, maybe not even used, and have wanted at one time or another.

I hope you will take a few minutes to visit my team mates' blogs to see what they have for "Oldies but Goodies". They always come up with absolutely gorgeous cards!
