Oldie for Ffffriday

Hello Everyone
Thank you coming to visit, and if you have time to leave a comment, I do appreciate it. If any of you have been wondering why I haven't commented on your blog, I apologise. Blogger wouldn't let me for some reason let me do so on my little iPod.
Thank you for your lovely comments about Thursday's offering - Jackie, I've seen the Minc machine and wonder if their foils would be suitable for the Patsy May machine. I must find that out! My laser printer only prints on paper and in black, but was very cheap, about £30-£40.
Today's oldie for Erika's inspiration where she invites you to post any crafty item here, is one I made  a few years ago in the days before I had a GC and dies! "she" was a real favourite of mine and I used this image a lot in various ways for that Christmas (2012 ish) I also made a gift of a tote bag bought from The Clever Baggers here. The photo of this particular image wasn't a very good photo, so the second photo is of another of the bags I "decorated" using transfer paper. So that year my Salsa Girlies all had a card and bag to match

black cardstock for the matting

Dancing was great fun last night and we may go somewhere to dance tonight where the the theme is white! It will give me a chance to wear a pair of white trousers which with this year's summer weather I haven't worn much. I have this "thang" that I can't wear a lot of white together if it's not bright sunshine! Daft I know but that's just me. My OH is working today and will be on Bank Holiday Monday, so it's an ordinary week end for me. What are you planning for the long week end!

See you Tuesday

  3. Very nice Karen, a good oldie !
    hugs Maria x

  4. I feel like saying "get thee behind me Saturn"!! I do not need a laser printer and a foiling machine. But thanks for the info anyway. Just love your bag the black is so dramatic. It might have been here that I mentioned one time I have used CraftyBaggers when I did a workshop with owl applique and as my ladies don't generally like sewing it was a surprising hit and the bags were very reasonable in fact very cheap! We had pouring rain all evening so it easn't white trouser weather but hope you enjoyed yourselves best wishes Jackie x

  5. I don't think I've worn white all summer, the weather has been that good up here! NOT.
    Your salsa dancing does sound like great fun.

    Thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie this week, I love your card and your bag. Lovely lady images and a useful gift to boot (the bag).
    I hope you have had a good weekend?

    Hugs Erika. x
