Oldie for Friday

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Thank you for calling by to see what is on offer for today`s "Oldie for Friday"  This was started by Erika over at
Its a fun thing ... anything Crafty you have made in the past is what is wanted.  
It amazes me how my Paper Crafting has developed.  I was always a knitter & sewer. I feel the style of that has not changed quite so much.  Talking of Sewing, when we had out Clear-Out we took boxes from the attic that were put up there when we moved.  I had a Box of Sewing Pattern`s that I had not used all the time we have been in this house.  All sorted and the ones that were definitely "dated" are in the recycling.  I have kept all the "classic" ones.  Don`t know if I will use them or just give them to the Charity Shop.  I used to make all my own clothes especially Evening Gowns.  Now John has retired we don`t do all the Fancy Dining anymore.
Anyway here is my Oldie for Friday:-

Can`t remember if I have shown this as an Oldie For Friday or not.
I did make the card back in 2013 inspired by a pair of shoes I was wearing that day.
Here are the shoes:-
I love these shoes, they are a bit high for every day use but I do wear them whenever I can.
They have the matching bag which is great

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

    The card is fabulous but so are the shoes. What colours are the shoes?
    When I was 60 Rachel organised a 60's birthday party, and she wore a halter neck evening dress which I had made at least 30 years before!!! (I've still got it!) George and I went as hippies!!
