"Oldie for Friday"

 Hello Blog friends, followers ad passers by.  Welcome, so glad to see you.  Hope you have all had wonderful New Year.  Very Quite here, being "out in the sticks" has its advantages!!!  There are no street lights down this end of the village so I think people get "scared of the dark" and don`t come this far along......!!!!
John, Audrey and the boys are coming along for New Year Dinner later.  Everything organised as far as I can get it for now.
I would like to welcome Lynda  .. who has joined as a follower.  Thank you so much for that, delighted to have you on board.
Stephanie asked if I have set days for posting on my Blog.  Stephanie, when you live in a "crazy mixed up house like mine" nothing is set or regular!!!! There is really just John and I but we don`t do regular ... every days a bonus so we just live it as it comes.   I used to Blog every day but what do you do with all those cards and projects???  OK! some I obviously use, some are orders, some I sell BUT what do I do with all the rest.  I have boxes of the blooming things.  I used give some away to people who were running Stalls for fundraising.  However I found out some were selling them for something like 50p each.  I have stopped doing that, my cards are maybe not every ones taste, I do think they are worth more than 50p.
Anyway here is my Oldie for Friday started by:-  Erika over at
I don`t know if she is keeping it going this year or not.  The idea was to see things you have done in the past.  It does not have to be cards, anything you have made and would like to share, go ahead we would love to see it,

A Tag I made simply to use the Sentiment.
The Tag still hangs over the edge of a mirror in the Guest Bedroom
To me it is a reminder!!
Flowers are made before I had any of the  Rose Dies ..  I used SB Classic Circle Dies, divided each layer to form petals. 
SB Foliage Die
That`s it for today better go check that I "do" have things under control.
Thank you for your visit I really apppreciate it
Till next time

  6. Beautiful Tag.. I know, these cards build up, I do not have many of them, I usually send them out, give them away or send them to my mother who loves getting mail, she is 87 and still painting and wall papering and has a basket filled with the cards I send her. :)

  7. Happy new year Patricia and thank you for the chq and beautiful card. I'm very late today, chilling out and catching up with things at home.

  18. Hi Patricia! Happy New Year to you and your family sorry its taken me so long to get round to your blog. I get upset when people always assume because cards are 'handmade' they should be cheap..a work colleague once offered me £1 for an 8x8 that I had spent hours on ..I was selling cards for the heart foundation at work..I was so disgusted and she couldn't understand when I refused to sell it to her!! LOL Tag is fab ..all the best for 2015 huggles Sue xxx

  19. hi Patricia
    happy new year for you and your family and beautiful flowers and tag and love the text.
    hugs from anneke

  20. Hi Patricia,
    What a lovely tag! I forget so often to make tags and I think they look lovely and can be hung up! Have been meaning to comment more and this is a New Year Resolution I am probably capable of keeping! Lol. Gym three times a week - forget it!
    Happy New Year to you and your family,
    Love Myra

  21. It's a lovely tag, and of course I noticed the pretty flowers right away. Bet it's a most wonderful decoration in your guest room...a very personal touch welcoming whomever sleeps there. TFS & Hugs

  22. Beautiful tag girl and as always I love the flower. I send my leftover cards to a local nursing home for the patients to hand out when someone does a kindness for them. They also give to each other and my sister says when she goes into a room and sees one of my cards on the bulletin board she knows I would be pleased.

  23. Morning Patricia,
    Happy New Year to you and your family.
    A lovely tag even if it's an oldie.

  24. A fab oldie Patricia, I remember this one and thank you for sharing it again! Hugs Carole Z X

  25. Hi Patricia,thank you for the welcome,sorry I haven't been around before, I love you tag even if it is old,it's very pretty the flower is gorgeous.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend & A Happy New Year love Lynda xx

  26. Fantastic tag and a brilliant sentiment - not surprised you keep it as reminder - we all need to stop and think sometimes and get things into perspective - luv it and your amazing flowers especially being made with a circles die - you are just a natural at making beautiful flowers xx GailT xx
