"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who just happens by.  Welcome to my Blog where I try to show lots of different Crafty Stuff.
WOW!! Its Friday again ... how did that happen???  Where did the week go???   Tell you what I am not really looking forward to "Sunday" its the longest day ... right!!!  Well after that the days start getting shorter.  What about Summer when do we get that???  On a brighter note maybe summer still has to come!!!! 
The boys will be off school for the Summer Holidays in a couple of weeks,   They were here yesterday after school for tea.  Thomas brought his bike along (well actually Grandpa put it in the boot of the car)  for Grandpa to fix, something to do with the gear changer.  All done and returned along with him later that evening.  Robert was very grumpy and went home with his dad.  I love that boy to bits but oh!boy! can he be Grumpy!!!!  I really think he does far too much,  playing lots of football is fine, but 3 times a week!!!!  Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday, the wee soul is exhausted.  He is so blooming skinny, he eats but I have seen a fatter "Bootlace"
Right on to Oldie for Friday started by Erika over at:-  Anything Crafty made by you in the past is what is wanted.
Here is mine for today:-

Plain and simple that`s for sure
Base card appox 5 x 7 
I have made a pierced effect on the edge of the base layer using a Score Bubby.  This is an ingenious little tool that give the effect of piercing.  You place your card on a score board catch a groove where you want the piercing and run the tool down your card ... done!!!
Sue Wilson Italian Collection  - Background Die
Sue Wilson Finishing Touches - Faux Quilled Leaves
Piece of Tulle tied in a simple knot
Banner hand cut, stamped and a pearl in the centre

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