"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.  Welcome to my little corner of Blogland which I have to say I have not been visiting myself as much lately.  I am stepping back a little, we have lots on and things to do especially now the weather is better.   I hope you are all well and enjoying the wonderful weather we have been having.  All very busy here at the Ranch.  John and I have done lots in the garden, cleared out the Shed (Garden Tool Store).  Cleared out the Summerhouse (boys garden toys plus +++)   The boys are now 10 & 8 why were we keeping all these Plastic Garden things???  All gone to a local "Pop up Charity Shop" who were very grateful and I know they have sold most them.  Still lots to do which is on going and will continue later today!!!!
Oldie for Friday is just a bit of fun started by Erika over at:-  anything Crafty you have done in the past is wanted.  Its all fun and a good way to show things you have done in the past.
Here is mine for today:-

Base card looks approx 5 x 7

SB Paisley EBF for the background
A Sue Wilson Edge Die down the side of the paper
Paper was definitely out of a Magazine
Rose made using a SB Classic Circle Die  I used the the Circle Die to show ladies at a class that you  did not need any Fancy Dies to make Roses, however the Blossom Five Die I use now makes much nicer Roses
Foliage a mixture of Dies
Ribbon and Pearls from my stash

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

  1. Morning Patricia, Wow !! you have both been busy, de-cluttered and also helping a charity shop too. Would you like to come and de-clutter mine hahaha, Graham and I are both hoarders, we need to be really strict and get rid of loads !!
    Loving your oldie for Friday card, proving that you can make a fabulous flower from a circle, brilliant.
    Enjoy your weekend, I will be working in the garden if the weather stays fine, fingers crossed.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  7. Beautiful Patricia. love the Paisley EBF. I know what you mean about stepping back, its really hard with everyday life going on and trying to keep a blog going, its surprising how much time a blog takes up, at the moment I am pushing myself to keep it going as I love it so much but yes other things have suffered because of it. Would be so much easier if I didn't work lol!

    Have a great day

    Love & hugs
