Lovely card, don't ask me why but it springs to mind the smell of old leather. It could be a childhood memory cos in my day doctors all had those leather bags.My doctor always had smarties in his and mum used to go mad if we took more than one! My crafty blogs took a couple of days to register but beware, it's quite addictive watching it go up and down for the first few week until it settles.
