Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today starts a new month of Retro Fresh Challenge over at our FFC blog
This month we want you to dust off your craft items and do some

As if Retro Fresh wasn't enough to make you use your older TGF stamps (6 months or older),
now you need to use some items that have been sitting in your craft space for a loooong time.

For my Karate Anya card (circa 11/09 digi) I used some patterned papers that I have had forever.
Seriously, forever. I bought this 12x12 Far East paper stack (DCWV) in 2008. 
{I only know this because I made my first project with Geisha Anya with this stack. ;)}
 It has some really pretty papers in kanji, as well as cherry blossoms, dragons,
and other nice asian designs. And the papers are super thick!
I paired her with some ribbon that was still in its packaging. 
I picked that up for Halloween two years ago from the $1 bin at Michaels.
The only thing new I used was the current sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (hi Mel!):

Now let's see what old stuff you dust off for this challenge!
Retro Fresh runs for an entire month, so you have plenty of time to join in.
You can also upload your cards to TGF's gallery or to SCS.

Thank you so much for coming by everyone, I truly love your visits!
