My oldie

Hello All
How's the weather your way, as I'm typing this it is snowing and beginning to settle. Busy week end again, today is my MIL's 92nd birthday and as her sister is visiting we're going around to see them and Oscar is (hopefully) coming too. On Sunday we are having lunch out with other members of the family.
My oldie is a real oldie. I made this with one of the first decorative dies I bought and Tonic Petal pairs punches - do you remember them I must admit they are languishing in a drawer now. Dies have taken over AND I was beginning to find them difficult to use. Probably user error but I was getting a little frustrated with my attempts to punch them out I.m also showing another vry similar one, this time using Mrs Duck's favourite die - Spellbinders Itty Bitty Blossoms! Apologies on the poor photography

4x6 card blanks
various colours of card including Centura pearl card
Bekka Feakin - Filigree Delights die
Tonic Punches
Spellbinders - Itty Bitty Blossoms
white pearls and tiny gold bling from stash

  1. Hi Karen your cards are gorgeous I love them both. Enjoy your really busy weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Still looks wonderful Karen, Love Bitty blossoms but very seldom use them, Note to self, use older dies. xxx

  3. Two very beautiful cards Karen, both the old and the new. I have two pairs of those punches lurking too.

    It sounds as if you're in for a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the time spent with all your family and I hope your MIL has had a super 92nd Birthday. Barbxx
