"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any one who has just "landed" in my little corner of Blogland.  .  Great to have you visit, I love having you here.  Hope you like what you see and call again soon.
I hope you all enjoyed the wonderful weather,  we had a brilliant day here yesterday.  It did not get really warm till just after lunchtime.  However when the clouds parted we had a very warm sunny afternoon.  Great to have our afternoon cuppa sitting outside.  That`s twice this week, love it.
I am off to meet Hazel later this morning.  Goodness a meet up two Friday`s in a row ... great, plenty to chat about.   Next Saturday ( the 20th) Hazel and I  are off to Glasgow to meet up with Rita   ...  Rita has been a faithful follower of my Blog from the beginning.  She has also followed Hazel right from the start of her Blog.   We feel we know her but have not yet met face to face, really looking forward to that.
"Oldie for Friday" was started by Erika  To show off some old work.  Now folks this does not have to be cards.  We would be delighted to see any of your old projects, no matter what.  Come on join in ...... tell you what, see for next Friday keep the thing you were going to show, save it for another day.    Get into those files and look for something ... OLD
Here is mine:-

Made this for a gardener friend of ours
Base card was already printed with the wood effect
Little flower pots were from Diane Jackson`s website.   She used to do lots of Die Cuts for sale (don!t know if she still does)   I bought these before I was really into Dies
Computer generated "The Potting Shed"
Flowers Soft used for the flower arrangements plus a few other Die Cut bits

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by and for leaving all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them
Till next time
