Oldie for Ffffriday

Hello Everyone
Thank you for visiting, I appreciate you coming by. I value you taking the time and trouble.
Thank you Linda and Tammy for popping across from House of Cards.
Jenny L, you did make me laugh re the reference to a marathon. I am humbled when we visit Harefield Hospital and see recent patients taking part. They award a cup to the one that has taken part who'd had their transplant closest to race day. The day is always the first Sunday in September and last year's winner had had their heart transplant in July - truly amazing. Did you know that there is a transplant athletic team and they have their own Olympics!
Jackie - the dress is finally cut out. I just need to sew it now!

Today's  oldie for Snappy Crafts curtesy of Erika See here
I saw this idea on Pinterest using a Memory Box die. I hadn't got the die and these are my interpretations

Hope you all have a great week end, having nails done tomorrow which means a bit of quality time with my daughter and on Sunday we are going to a charity BBQ organised by a Salsa guy for Macmillan Cancer Support where my daughter will be teaching a fun Rueda class and a Cha-cha-cha class xxx


  1. Hi Karen and thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie this weekend.
    I love this idea, with the coloured background and a white die front, it is very effective. MMMMmm now that's got me thinking.
    Your BBQ and dance sounds like good fun and right up my street, although I'd probably have two left feet trying to do the cha-cha-cha.

    Have a great weekend, hugs Erika. x

  2. Hello Karen,
    I love these cards and will "borrow" the idea!!!
    Have a great time tomorrow and just think, you can dance the calories off after the Bar-b-q!!!
