My Oldie for Fffriday

Good morning everyone. I've scheduled this post as I'm visiting young Oscar this morning. Thank you so much for your lovely comments re the crafter's card. I really enjoyed making these kind of cards for knitters and quilters etc. Of course, Friday's is to show an oldie inspired by Erika at Snappycrafts  and funily enough she is showcasing a card with butterflies. I thought I'd show a couple of cards I love making, inspired by a post by Sue Wilson from I have made several and have never repeated the colourway. So easy to do and very effective. These days I would probably ad more mats...
The jury is out on the Platinum at the moment, I think I need to play with it more and have a look at a view videos. Actually I haven't had a chance to really put it through its paces. I hope to remedy this, this afternoon. I'll let you know how it goes, I know JACKIE in particular would like to know my thoughts
