Nostalgic Memories

I had a mega wobble in my head … one side cried “no don’t use the paper” but luckily the sane side took over and said “use it all” so that is what I am doing from now on … No More Hoarding!!!

This paper is so old I think they have discontinued it, managed to find a link Die Cuts With A View but it says currently unavailable. At the time I bought they were one of those must haves but then got lost in the piles of paper that is slowly turning into a mountain (it’s nearly bigger than the house). Lots of stamping, inking, punching and embossing on my card with added tags which I adore making.
