"Oldie for Friday"

 Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.  Welcome, I love that you take time to pop in.  Thank you for all your lovely comments, it makes it all worth while.  I have a new follower, unfortunately I can`t find who it is.   Would like to put your hand up, shout out and tell me who you are!!! I would just love to know your name.  I also had a lovely comment from a new visitor called BrigetCG thank you very much.
It was extremely windy here yesterday, we even had to move the cars.  We have lots of trees which were blowing badly in the wind.  If a tree had come down on the garage my poor "Rosie" would have been trapped.  We have lots of room in front of the house so the cars were moved there.  Luckily all the trees are still there, well they were before it got dark and we could see them!!!
Nothing exciting yesterday, no overturned cars, unexpected visitors ..... all good to go and "play" 
 I will show you the results another day.   Today is Friday when we show "oldies" started by Erika over at   this is where we show work that we have done in the past. It does not have to be cards, it can be anything you have made and would like us to see.  Go ahead its just a bit of fun.
Here is mine:-

My card was inspired by these:-

I had been out with these shoes on and thought they could be inspiration for a card so there you go ... you can gain inspiration anywhere or from anything.
A very simple card
Base card approx 6x6 I would think
Navy card
White card
Cheery Lynn Chrysanthamum Die Strip
SB Butterfly Die
Pearls and ribbon from my stash

I love those shoes, really like wearing them.  They are old but still good and very comfortable.  
Wish it was the weather to wear then again!!!

That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time

Patricia xxxx

Almost forgot!!!  a few of you mentioned the "frames" I had made for the card in my last post.
They were cut using a set of Square Deckle edged Tonic Dies.  The set has LOTS of dies from tiny to approx 6x6.  I selected two leaving the out the one that would come between.....cut them out and you have your pretty frame


  1. A gorgeous card Patricia love the navy and white together so classy! I almost got blown away yesterday just like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, I was trying to get my Aunt out of the car! Seems a bit quieter this morning fingers crossed as I am off to Manchester. Susan x

  2. Lovely card, almost a perfect match for your shoes!


  3. I Patricia, I remember this card and the shoes, gorgeous and thanks for the revisit! I keep meaning to join in again, but Fridays seem to appear from nowhere at the moment, lol! Hugs Carole Z X

  4. Such a gorgeous card Patricia, the colours are so beautiful and I love how you were inspired by those fabulous shoes.
    Take care, hugs Sue xx

  5. Oh big sis I to wish it was the weather for you to wear those gorgeous shoes!!! Loved this card when you showed it before. Hazel xx

  6. Good Morning Patricia,
    Thankfully a calmer one today, which surprised me as it is 'Bin Day' here today and you can guarantee that people will put their 'unsecured' recycling out to blow across the street, it ends up looking like one of those huge art things you see them doing on kids programmes!
    I love your 'oldie Friday' card we don't see Navy & white cards often enough! I love that the Inspiration came from your shoes, you are so right, we can get inspiration from anywhere, although I have to be honest I have never thought of looking down at my feet, I will remember to do that, my shoes however are more designed for comfort than style !
    I hope you have a lovely weekend Patricia,
    Sandra xxxxx

  7. Morning your card & love even more that it was inspired by your shoes! Navy & white is a stunning colour combo, very elegant! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
    hugs Jo x

  8. Love your shoe inspired card Patricia...very classy. All is calm here too this morning, thank goodness! Off to join you at Erika's too. Enjoy your weekend. Carol x

  9. Morning Patricia,
    A very pretty CAS card, love it. Missed Wednesday's post for some reason, very pretty cards created form your bit box.

  10. Great card and I even love the shoes that inspired you! Hope you have a good weekend planned!

  11. Fabulously brilliant the colour combo and image AND shoes are{The Journey is the Start – my personal blog}

  12. Love where you inspiration came from Patricia...gorgeous card and love the colours.


  13. Hi Patricia,
    Lovely card and lovely shoes!
    I could be your new follower - I don't really understand how these things work but I put my email address in and it does not actually contain my name but it starts mry. Hope this helps and sorry if I've caused confusion!
    Have a lovely weekend. Know what you mean about trees! I feared for our Conservatory roof last night!
    Love Myra

  14. Isn't it amazing where inspiration comes from?
    Lovely shoes and card Patricia. Can't beat flowers and butterflies and I always think they look so classy in that colour combo.
    Thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie today, have a super weekend and stay warm.

    Hugs Erika. x

  15. I love this plain simple but oh so eye catching card today Patricia. I know those Tonic dies you've just mentioned, I was hoping that our Sue would release a larger die like the one SB has retired but nope, and to be honest both Tina and myself have probs eith the largest square from the New York range so whilst at Leeds I bobbed into Samuel Taylor's a wonderful craft shop in and around Yorkshire, its like being in a lovely big craft dream but Ive never had long enough to have an all day browse, which it needs to take it all in ! But that Tonic die is brilliant 14 dies for under 20.00 now that's what I call value for money. Can I please ask... Would it be better to emboss a piece of card before cutting the Tonic border ? Ive never had dies that I can make a good wide border, but if.I embossed AFTER cutting the border woukd the embossing folder make the border card buckle ? Any advice would be so helpful.
    Shoes... How fab that a design on a pair of shoes has given you the idea for this card - bet our 'hero' has never had anything like that as inspiration LOL. The only thing Ive ever looked at and thought 'that would make the prettiest of embossing folder' and that's Andrex loo paper LOL !
    Anyway, halfway through starting a sympathy card for my market basket top up so will love and leave you and bob over to see what Hazel has to wow me with.
    Have a really good weekend. Stay safe and warm.

  17. wow.. This card is fabulous Patricia. Great job,

  18. Hello Patricia, I remember this card and loved it, still do. The colour theme is a favourite of mine. I do think your shoes are gorgeous.
    Have a good weekend, hugs Kate x

  19. Hi Patricia, I, too, remember this card and the inspiration with the shoes, they are both gorgeous.
    I had just locked my front door after lunch, to go linedancing, and before I could get into my car we had a hailstorm, then sleet, then rain, yucky yucky, and I've just been out to put something in the recycle bin and it has frozen shut - hurry up sunshine !!!!!!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  20. HI Patricia, I to remember your beautiful card..
    I get new followers and like you sometimes do not know who they are, as I cannot find them, sure its when they join and no photo of them?..
    Hugs Pam

  21. A gorgeous card Patricia, love the colours and design

  22. What fun that these pretty shoes inspired your lovely card. Really like the floating butterfly, and the flowers were a great match for the ones on your shoes. Liked the colors as well. So glad you didn't have another exciting adventure day. TFS & Happy Wkend. Hugs

  23. Hi Patricia
    Super card. You can really see the texture on it. Knew it couldn't be recent inspiration with the shoes as I know the Uggs don't get surgically removed until the Spring lol!
    Keep them tootsies warm!
    Best wishes.

  24. Luv the card and the shoes too - a double whammy - no a triple whammy when you have shoes that are pretty AND comfy!! don't usuallly go hand in hand xx hope the snow has now gone and things are back to normal and hopefully the wind has died down too - our son lost the fekt off his shed but no real damage so although it was a bit wild no real damage done xx enjoy the rest of your weekend xx GailT xx

  25. I am totally smitten with your fabulous shoes (sorry, I've got this thing about shoes, my nickname is Imelda, lol!) and gorgeous card!! Love how you were inspired by your shoes, the flowers are superb (yours are always the best Patricia). Hugs, Ira xox
