Oldie for Ffffriday

Hello All
I'm glad you liked Thursday's post. It was really hard to take a photo and get all of the texture to show. I've got a friend coming over this afternoon to craft, bless her, she has really taken to card/paper crafting and has made two beautiful box frames using roses that she made last time she was here. She's even bought some dies and has the GC on her Christmas list. Today she wants to make a birthday card for her mum. So I must go and clear a space! looking forward to Strictly tonight which I get a little emotional at, a) I just love dancing and b) when my mum was alive, she'd ring me as soon as the credits rolled and we'd chat about who was our favourites and the costumes etc
On to today's oldie inspired by Erika at Snappy Crafts. I was intending to scan some very old photos of cakes I used to make for family/friends birthdays etc - not got around to it, so I'll save that for another day.
Instead it's another card! I made this one for my mum to give to her sister. Very simple and there was a story behind why I used a mannequin. This must be one of the first cards I ever made and definitely the first time I'd used ribbon - still not good at using ribbon, it always looks like I've just plonked it on and looks out of place!

  4. Hello Karen,
    This is fab, and you do yourself an injustice. The ribbon is the finishing touch.
