Golden oldies......

We have a team dare this week, and we were thinking.....with so many new things /latest papers/ trendy stuff constantly coming on the market, we thought it would be nice to have a look back, and dig out some of our 'old' papers and embellishments and make a card with our 'preloved' treasures. I think the tendency these days is to get on the 'latest must have' band wagon, sometimes, its nice to recognise what we already have- even if it isn't the 'latest' embellishment/paper.


Luckily no pictures have survived of my first forays into the world of cardmaking but.... there was a time that everything that I made came complete with a little bear.... so I have revisited the past and made a 'beary special' card for this week's dare.

Paper is Crate paper, Cuttlebug embossed Core'dinations cardstock, Docraft brad, Hobbycraft ribbon, Prima flowets and hand cut bear.

TFL :)

That bear is so cute and cuddly JO. Reminds me of one of my first bear stamps. I nearly used him for this dare.
