"Oldie for Friday"

Good morning everyone, hope you are all well.  Welcome to my wee corner of Blogland. Oh! My! Word! it is so dark at 5.30am these days  ....  don`t like it!!!!
Welcome to my new followers Joe & Margaret, thank you so much for joining me, hope to see you back soon.  I mentioned on my last post that I was curious as to who was looking in.    Nosey!! that`s me, when I looked at how many people looked in on my Blog and how many actual comments, there was such a BIG difference.  I was not fishing for extra comments although I appreciate every single one.  It was just got my mind going as to who these people might be........!!  Thank you to those of you who have now left a comment.   I am really delighted, I can get back to thank you and see what you get up to if you have a Blog.  If not I thank you anyway.
I am off to meet Hazel this morning so its all go here at The Ranch.  I like to get things done before I go out.  I hate coming back from something to have to catch up with what I did not do.  Because of one thing and another I have not seen Hazel face to face for almost a MONTH!!!!  We do chat every day and message each other most of the evening, but it`s not the same.
Here is a card for "Oldie for Friday" started by  It gives an opportunity to show things you have made in the past.  It does not have to be cards, if you have something please let us see it, come and join in.

Here is my card:-
Base card 6 x 6
Backing paper from a Rob Adam`s CD...printable Gingham, Polka Dot, Check & Tartan Backing papers.  It is a old but great CD, I still use it lots
Bits from my Bit Box
Those flowers are really old, made using a Crealies Die. It was one of those Dies that had foam for easy release.  Its long gone it actually fell apart with use!!!!  The same thing happened to the Foliage Die as well.  These Dies were used when I first started making Roses or any flowers for that matter
Sentiment was from a pack brought back from the States many years ago
Pearls from my stash

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for your visit I do appreciate it
Till next time
