Oldie for Friday... I know It's late!

Hello Everyone
I'm back and so is the laptop - Hooray!
A big welcome to Cheryl, thank you for joining in the dance!
I dread to think how old this project is See Erika's page here. As her oldie yesterday has butterflies I thought I 'd show this one!
Les Papillon and Marvellous Squares were the first dies I ever bought. I have done quite a few in different colour ways of this card and in the bottom right hand corner have used a sentiment instead. It was inspired by a post by Sue Wilson 

It's a 6x6" card blank
My Craft Studio background paper 
Cream card "dabbed" with distress ink using a scrunched up piece of tin foil a la Ali Reeve stylee and a little bit of bling

Take care everyone and hopefully normal service has been resumed and I'll be catching up with all that I've missed. See you Tuesday


  1. Karen, you have added to my confusion over what day it is? I lost a day while flying home,, and then you post your oldie Friday on Saturday that didn't show up on my dashboard till today. A great "oldie" by the way. Hazel x

    Have a great day
