My Oldie for Fffriday

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are all well and thank you for visiting. Big apology first, I mentioned Oscar in my last post title and then totally forgot to mention him/post a photo! he is growing fast and changing everyday. he does make my heart swell with pure joy! I love to see him smile and laugh at his favourite toy - Lion or Leo as my husband calls him. he chatters away as happy as larry. The photo at the end of this post was taken about a six weeks ago and just shows what a happy little man he is.I cannot believe he is over 5 months old now!
 Today is my day to show an oldie as inspired by Erika at Snappycrafts. It's a time to post an old project whether or not you have previously blogged it. recently I saw a beautiful quilled card displayed on tis blog Cotswold Crafter and remembered my trials at quilling.. I tried it years ago and gave up because my circles were always wonky and never spiralled nicely BUT I didn't have that lovely gadget that's available ow to keep the circles you create in place before you use them. This card was created with a free Serif digikit

5x7 card blank
lilac card embossed with a That Special Touch mask
White card with Phill Martin texture paste - chic viola through the same mask
Image and patterned paper from Serif kit

  1. Hi Karen this is a gorgeous card I love the design. That is a fantastic photo of Oscar he looks like a very happy cheeky chappy. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Oscar is such a happy wee cutie, can't believe he's over 5 months.
    Thanks for joining me sharing an oldie this weekend. I have quilling stuff somewhere in my craft room bought many many years ago. I didn't get off with it either, no patience and always expecting perfection.
    You've done a great job with your card and a lovely colour combo too.
    Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. X

  3. Lovely card KAren and Oscar looks a real happy chappy, xxx

  4. Hi Karen, What a dear little grandson you have. That's such a lovely photo of little Oscar. What a happy little chap he is.

    Your card is really pretty and I love the colours. Your quilling looks very good to me. Barbxx

  5. Hi Karen
    Lovely card....I did think that was real quilling and thought what patience you must have lol!
    Aww, Oscar looks a smasher, bless him. Where does the time go?
    Best wishes.
