Oldie Friday

Yay, it's Friday! It's a lovely warm sunny day here in Lancashire, my car was showing an outside temperature of 20 degrees centigrade as I was driving home from work. The bunnies are happily sunbathing in the run and all is well.
As it's Friday it's time to join up with the fabulous Erika and share an old make. It can be anything crafty, previously shown on your blog or not. I recently discovered some old pictures lurking on photo bucket (no idea what they were doing on there?!) and this shows that it may have been taken 10 years ago, but my photography skills haven't improved! I remember that this decoupage kit came from create and craft in the days when Michelle Marsden used to own a craft company and bring products to sell. I've still got some bits of this kit knocking about as I this was one of two cards I made from it as it was printed on such heavyweight card that it was a nightmare to cut out! I think the embossed background was in the kit too and the flowers were from QVC and the sentiment from Lakeland when they both used to sell craft stuff. 
I hope you all have a great day and a fab weekend x

Love the card btw, those soft colours are soothing my frazzled nerves. Cx

  13. Awww that's a cute oldie ... my 10 year old cards are dire LOL
    Send some of your sunshine our way, we had a dreary, chilly damp day today :(

  14. Well it shows your skills were there 10 years ago. Very pretty, photo skills have improved. I know that feeling of printing up on card stock/paper thats too thick and trying to cut it out. Like the Tim Holtz watercolour cardstock, try cutting that bugger out.
