Oldie for Friday

Hello Blog friends, can you believe it, it`s Friday AGAIN!!! who stole the week???
Been a busy week here at the Ranch, nothing in particular.  Always seems to be things to do.  I have been out and about these past few days meeting up with friends. Catching up with chat & even a bit of gossip.
I have had lots of cards to make for other people.  They are all done and ticked off the list.  I do have a few tucked away to show sometime soon.
Oldie for Friday was started as a bit of fun by Erika over at:-http://snappycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/
Anything you have done in the past is what is needed.  Tell you what its a great way of having something to Post if like me you have been out enjoying yourself.
Here is mine for this week:-


I really can`t remember if I have shown this as an Oldie for Friday.  
If I have I am sorry, please forgive me.  This "Old Age" thing is creeping in quite rapidly!!!
The card is just multiple layers.  The cenral square is cut using Tonic Dies.  I did use scraps of paper from my Bit Box for the Roses.  They are cut using SB Blossom Five Die.  SB Foliage Die for the leaves. 
Stamped greeting, a few pearls for my stash

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by, I really do appreciate that you do that.
Off to see if I can find any of the past week that I seem to have lost!!!
Till next time
Hugs

Having fun with Shoes and Bags

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Great to have you call by, I love that you do that.
If you have a Blog and leave a comment I can get back to see what you do.  If not I thank you for your visit.  I hope you like what you see and call again soon.
I have had lots of fun making Shoes & Bags.  Made them over the past few day, they are now all finished. Hazel, my sister gave me an idea about how to "display and wrap them".  I have just to wrap them in Cellophane.  I thought I would show you them before I did that.
We used to import Oriental Carpets and still have a few left.  A friend of John`s who has bought quite a few phoned to ask if he would be interested in bringing them to her house in hope to sell some.  She is Hosting a Macmillan Night In, is having a few people together to sell some of their goods.  All that is required is to donate a percentage of any sales.  Sheila asked if I would bring some of my things as well.   We know how much Macmillan Nurses helped Hazel when she needed them, so no hesitation whether we sell anything or not.
Right here we go, there are a few Photographs:-
 Set One:- 
 Set Two:-
 Previous Display Idea
The last two shots are of the way I was going to display them.  
I pop a Nail Polish in each of the Shoes. Nail Polish Remover Pads, Large Emery Board and a Hand Cream in the Bag.
OR:- Mini Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Spray in the bag plus Mini Toothpaste and Folding Toothbrush in the Shoes. 
However Hazel had a set I made for her, she wrapped them altogether in an "Open Style Box"  ... Bingo that`s the way to do it!!!!  
Hazel http://hazelsbasketsofjoy.blogspot.co.uk/ is amazing at wrapping anything she`s brilliant.  Thank goodness for clever sisters.

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