Antiques Roadshow - Hedgies

Do you remember the pingu and snowman challenges that Squirrel hosted just before Xmas?  Well she's rallied the troublesome trio again for a fun new challenge starting today.  This time, the theme is called "Antiques Roadshow" and you need to dig out and showcase some old and forgotten stash.  So dust off those stamps that you'd forgotten you had, and give them some inky loving!

My immediate thought when we discussed the theme was Penny Black.  These critters were the images that started my addiction to stamping; I especially adore those little hedgies and mice and quickly became addicted. Therefore my card today features one of the hedgie images.

The border die I've used is also one of my oldest, and I've even had the green pearls for about 2 years (I bought a bag of 100 so even by using them in trios, they're lasting me a little while!).  The papers are probably a bit more recent than 2 years, but still ones I've had a while.

I'll be back tomorrow with another sample, but I hope I've inspired you to pop over to Squirrel's blog to see the other samples from both Squirrel and Jayne, and to link up your 'antique' laden creations.

I shall have to have a rummage and see if I can find this stamp at the back of my cupboard...it takes me back! It's been sooo long, I can't actually remember what Penny Black stamps I have...they also started my crafting inspiration along with Hero Arts! Hope you have a lovely long weekend, whatever your plans!
