Arabian Nights ~ Once Upon a time...

Igjen har jeg funnet frem Hero Arts sitt klubb nydelige klubbkit med '1001 natt' tema dies og stempler fra desember ifjor, denne gang sammen med et par av mine absolutt eldste stempler ~ All Night Media øyenstikkeren må vel være rundt 20 år gammelt for det var allerede et godt brukt stempel da jeg kjøpte det for mer enn ti år siden, og både Lazar StudioWerx snirkel stemplet og Whiff of Joy jenta inni er fra stempelsett jeg kjøpte i 2010! 
De holder seg godt :) Selv om jeg nok har ti ganger flere digitale stempler, så er det fremdeles mine kjære gummistempler jeg elsker mest

I have yet again taken out and played with my fabulous Scheherazade / Arabian nights theme Hero Arts Monthly clubkit from december last year ~ this time pairing it with a couple of my oldest stamps of my collection. The All Night Media dragonfly has got to well around 20 years old by now, as it was already old and well used when I bought it second-hand more than ten years ago. And both the swirl stamp from Lazar StudioWerx and the Whiff of Joy girl inside my card is of a stampset I bought back in 2010! All three gone out of business ages ago...
Talking about oldies but goodies! :) Even if I probably have ten times more digistamps than I do rubber and clear, the sweet rubberstamps will always be my not-so-secret-hoarding-addiction and absolute favourites
