"Oldie for Friday

 Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and survived the storms.  It was horrendous here overnight.  It has calmed down now but they say there is more to come. Did not sleep much last night so might just have to have 40winks this afternoon.
I am in a bit of a muddle, I am Annie Sloaning a couple of little chests of drawers that have been out in the Garage for a few years.
I suddenly remembered it was Friday so here I am with a very quick Post.

I imagine the card would have been approx 5 x 7
SB Edge Dies for the Zig/Zag
Marianne Doily Die
This is an old card,  look at the "Roses" ... they are bought ones from Wild Orchid Crafts
American Seam Binding from them as well
Sentiment from Pink Petticoat
Bakers Twine for the little bow

A few of you have asked about how I make my "Roses"
I have a "very crude" tutorial back on 4th November 2012   I have spent absolutely ages trying to get this as a link ...  sorry no luck.  I am so hopeless on the computer it makes very angry with myself.  I definitely need to go have that lie down NOW!!!  My Annie Sloaning will have to wait till I fully recover from this trauma....LOL!!!

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by and for your patience with my ignorance
I really appreciate that you take time to come visit me
 Look after yourselves stay safe in these horrible winds
Till next time

Hi again, I thought to calm myself down I would do some commenting  ....  well another annoyance added.    I just cant get my comments to publish....AAAHHH!!!  Sorry folks I  "AM" looking and admiring.    Hopefully things will sort themselves out later.


  1. You have made me smile this morning with your post. First off I love the card and I got so tickled about you trying to get the link done. Girl I'm right there with you. I just can't seem to do that; I'm definitely getting old!

  2. Well big sis join the club, I tried to link Erikas blog to my post and it just wasn't playing, Love your oldie with your gorgeous flowers. I thought maybe it was the Annie Sloan paint that was causing all the problems. You will have to show your painted pieces when they are all done. Well have been making the mock up of Gillians and Andrews invites, wrote down everything and now I can't find what I have done with it. Hazel xxx

  3. Yes, wow, what a night. 114mph recorded on anoch Mhor next to us, but probably their equipment won't record above that. No sleep for us, so will try to nap later since a few more days of this to come, hopefully not as bad.
    Love the card, your flowers always look great.
    Forgive my ignorance, but what do you mean by Annie Sloaning?

  4. Wild here too during the night but I slept no bother! A lovely card Patricia, it's nice to look back to see how you've developed as a crafter. I want to paint my hall furniture to give it a new life but I'm hopeless with a paint brush! Carol x

  5. Beautiful card Patricia. Love the design and those roses are just stunning. Go get some sleep.

  6. Love this one and hope you feel calmer soon! I'm all to pot today lol! It must be the weather xx Jan

  7. Hi Patricia,
    I am in awe of your computer skills! I have only just managed to connect to Pinterest . I would love to do a blog but don't know how to begin.
    Here in Lancashire today it is dark and wet and horrid but at least we didn't have your storms.
    Love your Friday idea.
    Love Myra

  8. Hi Patricia. Wow I thought that die WAS a real lace doily, its beautiful. Ooo another admirer from Lancashire ! Where abouts Myra ?
    I too feel ignorant but will ask anyway, what are you exactly doing to your shelves ??
    Have a relaxing evening everyone and a better sleep than last night. From a dark, wet, miserable Lancashire. Over and out.

  9. Oh Patricia I hope by now you are calmer and maybe have had your forty winks, sounds as it your tired. Hellish here last night too.
    Now your card is beautiful, love the colour theme and your doily.
    Hope your weekends good, hugs Kate x

  10. Hi Patricia, sometimes computers just drive you crazy? No?!*
    Looking forwards to see your Annie Sloan projects, I love her paint.
    Thanks for sharing an oldie with me today, I love your layers and colour combo.

    Have a super weekend, hugs and happy crafting, Erika. x

  11. What a superb card Patricia, love the zig zag and the colour of those roses and binding look wonderful. Hope the storms abate so you sleep well tonight, I think they have arrived "down south" it's blowing a hooly out there so I doubt I shall sleep much once Martin has left for work :0( xx

  12. A very pretty card Patricia. Hope you have recovered and de-stressed now!

  13. Such a gorgeous card Patricia, I love the design and beautiful colours.
    I hope the weather with you is calmer tonight and you manage to catch up with some sleep.
    I hope you have a good weekend.
    Sending hugs, Sue xx

  14. Hi Patricia
    And there was me thinking how your flowers looked just like Marisa's lol!
    Love the design of this, with the zig zag. Superb!
    Annie whatting? Glad I'm not the only one lol!
    Hold onto your hat up there.
    Best wishes.

  15. Oh Patricia what a lovely chocolate roses, doily die cuts and fabulous design.

    Hugs Diane

  16. Hi Patricia, Loving the earthy colours on this card, it is lovely.
    I haven't got a clue what 'Annie Sloaning' means, is it upcycling old furniture, with paint etc ??
    It has been really gusting here but nowhere near as bad as you have had it, I'm really scared when it is really bad wind, and prefer to stay indoors, I'm a right scaredy cat haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  17. Hi again Patricia, I've just googled it, and it's Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and you don't need to prep beforehand, sounds great.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  18. Ha ha ha! Oh Patricia, I do love your character! Relax girl and keep on breathing, lol! Things will work out fine in the end (they always do ;-) Will you show us your Annie Sloan drawers, too? What colour are you using? Have fun! Btw, your card is lovely with these rich chocolate tones! Hugs Ira xox

  19. What a lovely oldie Patricia, gorgeous! You're an Annie Sloaner too? I am such a massive fan of her paint, I just want to keep doing makeovers with it!!! Do you wax as well? If not, you must, the finish is incredible hugs Carole Z xx

  20. Fabulous oldie Patricia,..
    No sleep for me either last was I type the wind is up again really bad sleep tonight I think!!!

  21. Evening Patricia what a lovely old card I really like the colours you used.
    weve got the gales too never shut my eyes last night and im sure I'll not be tonight as tonight is worse than last night. I really hate it when its windy.
    thank you for your lovely comments on my blog.
    Take care in these winds

  22. Oh Patricia, you have just said and expressed the very feelings I have had today - I try so hard on the computer but it never seems to do what I want either....... hope a rest helped you though.

    Your card is so beautiful, but then all your cards are beautiful!

    Hope you don't get too much of the horrible weather that is expected this weekend. Take care. Hugs, Anne xx

  23. Patricia, it's a lovely card and I really like the sepia tones. Well done! Hope the nasty storms don't return with such ferociousness. Hazel may be able to help you with the linking...or if you want to leave me a comment with your email address, I might be able to help you (I'll try anyway! I moderate comments so no one but myself will see your info). It's really not difficult, just need a little 'how-to'. We all have to learn. Good luck with the blogger boo-boo. I think (hope) my insurance rant may have gotten resolved today. I'll know if we get the medications!!! Happy wkend, TFS & big hugs. (oh yes, I had a nice little cozy nap this afternoon too).

  24. Another beautiful creation! Love this card too! Have a great weekend!

  25. Hi Patricia, beautiful card, love the doily die, so pretty.

    Hope you got your nap and sorted your computer out, they can be a real pain can't they?

    Love & Hugs

    Love your oldie card. Like you I'm hopeless with the computer, I have to wait for one of my Granddaughters ti visit if I have a problem.

  28. Good evening Patricia
    Sorry to be so late but hopefully better late than never! This is such a beautiful card I adore the lace doily it looks so delicate, and your colours are so rich looking. We too here in the Lake District have had the storms too.
    Take care
