a bit of "Antique" dusting!

Hello there, and thank you for popping in today......hope this finds you well! What a grim and wet day it has been today......yesterday was gloriously warm and sunny, I cut my front grass, did a bit of weeding and then planted some bedding (Snapdragon and Dianthus)
 So it tickled me recently when I noticed that the lovely Squirrel is running a challenge which required dusting off older craft stash, under the name of the Antiques Road show Challenge! I couldn't resist it, so I've been trawling through old files (many of which have had me groaning in shock and horror at my efforts of yesteryear, lol)  until I stumbled upon this once much loved digi set from Cuddly Buddly
I had originally downloaded it in March of 2007, and it seemed only fitting to use some of my earlier dies too.
this card features
  • Mother Bear set from Cuddly Buddly (image and papers)
  • Go Kreate fancy square die
  • Original Sizzix scalloped edge tag
  • Nellie Snellen "doily" circular die
  • flowers and self adhesive ribbon from Hobbycraft
If you would also like to come for a mooch down memory lane, you can find the everything here
