Sharing an Oldie this Friday

Hi Crafters,
How is everyone?
Well I feel like I have been run over by a steam roller today, I had a fabulous time yesterday walking round the NEC craft show at Birmingham and buying lots of crafty stash but today I am suffering with a flair up of Fibromyalgia and I ache all over. I've tried taking my mind off it by crafting but I just don't feel up to it, so I thought I would blog instead. I have rather a lot of cards and projects that haven't seen the spotlight yet so I thought I would join in with Erika at Snappy Crafts and post an 'Oldie on Friday'...

 
I used a Marianne Designs Cupcake die and some digital papers for this one, the sentiment is a stamp but I can't remember what set it came from and I haven't got any notes on this card so without looking through all my stamps I couldn't say. The border was made with a Martha Stewart punch and some ric-rac ribbon.
I will definitely be joining in with this weekly post again, it's fun to look back at what you have made in the past and also to see how your style has changed over time too.
Enjoy your day, it's quite sunny here now after the eclipse and the overcast start to the day, hope you are getting some sun too.

Hi Lorraine, thank you for joining me in sharing an oldie today and welcome. I know what you mean about craft show visiting, it's great till the following day and all the excitement catches up with you!
A great card you have shared today, I did giggle at the sentiment, it's great. I am a cake girl at heart!
Lovely layering too.

Hope you feel better soon. I know how that aching can set a person back. A day or two to yourself with nothing but relaxation is always good.

Your oldie but goodie is a treat. You have reminded me that I have a cupcake die that has never seen paper!

The rickrack with the MS border and the wee pearl detail is so pretty!

Hope you feel better today. Could we have some pics of what you bought please. Going to Ally Pally next month rather than NEC, going there in November. Fab card, great colours

Kat W said...

It's an oldie but a goodie! Fabulous design, all those cupcakes look yummy!

I'm glad you had a good time at the NEC and hope you feel well enough to play with your new stash soon.
I went yesterday and am currently stuck in the motorway services because of an accident on the M5 so I can't play with my stuff either :-(

And I agree with Marianne - do share some pics of your crafty goodies! I will be sharing once I get home!

Big hugs, Kat xx
