"Oldie for Friday" No 2

Hello blog friends, followers and all who find themselves here for what ever reason.  You are very welcome, I love having visitors.  If you have an active Blog and leave a comment I will link back to see what you get up to.  For all who leave me comments and do not have an active Blog I thank you for that.  Maybe in the future you might have a wee think and join this wonderful world of Blogging, it is so much fun.
Not so busy at the Ranch this week but oh! my! word! where has the time gone.  
Just had a thought, normally at a Ranch there are horses.......none here I am afraid.  It is an expression that we have used for a long time.......time to head home to the Ranch!!!!  We do live in wide open spaces, have sheep and lambs over the fence but that`s it.
I am off to Perth later to meet Hazel.  An exciting meet up, this will be our last "face to face" meeting before we fly off next Thursday.  We chat every day but it`s much nicer to see each other.
Last week Erika over at snappycrafts. blogspot had a post titled "Oldie for Friday" to encourage us to use some of our "older" things also show some of our "older" makes.  To continue the theme I have decide to show another of my older makes.
Here is a card I did for a friend ... I forgot her birthday.


Base card approx 5 x 7

Pink card stock
Backing paper printed from a MCS Cd

Flowers and Foliage Crealie Dies

Thank you so much for taking time to come visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

"A New Rose"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.  I am reading on a lot of the Blogs about the brilliant weather. Tell you what they must have forgotten to include some of the North East of Scotland.  It is bright here today but rather cool to say the least.
All quite at the Ranch this week.....so far!!!
Last week was hectic, painters here all week doing the outside of the house. Finished and looking good again.  The woodwork suffered this ravages of winter this year.
Visitors arrived who needed lots of feeding!!!  We did go out a couple of times to ease the situation.  I do not enjoy cooking, I cook because I have to.  Certainly not one of my favourite pastimes I can assure you.   I used to LOVE baking, I still do.  I do not do as much now, we don`t eat that kind of thing so much now, but I do like baking.
I was trawling some Blogs one day and found a Tutorial for a slightly different "Rose"   I love making flowers so of course I had to have a go.  The Tutorial is on livedream.Blogspot.co.uk belonging to Jennie.
If you have time pop over she does some great Projects and Tutorials.
I had a comment asking about listing any colours I use in Pens.  I really do not do much colouring, if I do it is on a Whim and would just use what I feel like at the time.  If I do any colouring in the future I will try to remember to note what I use.............don`t hold your breath, colouing does not happen often.
Here is a little card using the Rose I made:-


Base card approx 4 x 6 an off cut I found lying about
Backing paper Nit Wits download from my box.  Did not realise till I was placing the Bird House .... I had punched a bit out...... can you see it????
MB Window and Foliage ......  from my Die Cut box
IO Bird House...... also from my Die Cut Box
TH Flower Die I used 2 of the 4 flowers shapes on this Die.
(just discovered I can use TH Dies in my CuttleBug) Doh!!!!

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for popping in I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs
