"Oldie for Friday No 4"

Hi there folks,
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you do that.
Hopefully I have managed to keep up with you all.  If not I will get back on tack when we return home next week.
Here is my submission for the Oldie on Friday ........  !!
This is the very fist card I ever Blogged back on 6th June 2012.  I remember that day for the frustration I went though trying to start my Blog, I am not good on the computer.  However, for some reason a thing popped up saying ....Start a Blog.  I clicked on and after some real hair pulling and a few choice words I got it.
The first comment I got was from Carol, CM Designs then Flora from craftylark one from a friend Debbie who I  first came across through looking at Blogs before I started mine, she encouraged me to start.  Debbie and I have met although I seem to have lost touch with her since the New Year.  Things changed in her life so I suppose there are greater prorities than Blogging.  Can I just thank everyone who has stuck by me through the years.  Without you it would not be so much fun, I also love to look and see what you guys are up to.
Anyway here is the card:-





Can`t really give any details other than I used 2 Doilies
WOC for the Roses,  I have cut then wrapped the wire stems round a cocktail stick to make the twists
American Seam Binding and some Bakers Twine

That`s it for today
Till next time 
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it 
Hugs

"Birthday Wishes"

Hello Blog friend, followers and passers by, hope you are all well. 
Thank you for calling in to visit, I love that you do that.
Another scheduled Post that I hope gets there.
A card also from Rita`s order, it is for the lady opposite her.  The lady runs a Taxi business, Rita uses her for some journeys she needs to make.  We have no bus service within 3 miles of our village.  Most people do things for others when they can but there are times that Rita has to use the services of Linda and her Taxi.  
Here is the card I made:-



Base card 6 x 6 PMD Hammered Card
Backing paper printed from MCS Flogiogrphy CD
White card and die cut a SB Butterfly out 
(I used the actual Die Cut for decoration on the back of the card)
I punched different flowers and butterflies, added them.
The tiny flowers are waste from a Die Cut I keep them for things like this
Computer generated greeting and some pearls from my stash

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs

"New Baby Boy"

Hello folks, If this works we should be sunning ourselves in our little corner of Paradise.....Dalyan, Turkey.
I am scheduling some Posts I do hope they are working.  I should know if Fridays worked .... we will see.
I will be chatting to you on your Blogs via my iPad anyway.  Seeing all your wonderful creations and keeping you up to date with our exploits. 
Thank you for popping by I really love that you take time to do that.  
This is one of the cards I made last week for my neighbour in the village.  She is the oldest resident of the village (which is tiny)   Rita was 90 years old two weeks ago and she has the most magnificent garden.  Wins prizes very year for showing certain Plants and also "Best Garden" in the area.  The only real help she gets in the garden is when he son comes and turns the ground over for her to begin planting.   She told me when she was along with her order. "if  I could not get out in my garden life would not be worth living"  I think she is an amazing lady.
Here is today`s card:-


Base card approx 8 x 6 PMD Hammered Card
Blue Card Stock from a pack that Sue Wilson promoted on C&C some time ago
Digital image  ... had this for years but don`t know were it came from, Sorry!!

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit, I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs
