Sharing An Oldie On Friday

Hi Crafters,
A little late in the day but I'm here now, this morning was busy with my stall at the Farmers' Market and I didn't get a chance to post this before I went, so here is my 'oldie' for this week joining in with Erika of Snappy Crafts.
This is a thank you card that I made back in 2012 for a swap partner in Canada, we had both sent each other some goodies. The word die is from Sizzix and I cut this into the panel which was then covered in red micro beads. The photo is rubbish I'm afraid as the floral paper is flocked and the black 'thank you' is shimmery glitter but it doesn't show up at all. I have a different camera now and a bit more experience although that doesn't always guarantee great results :/
This links nicely into a big 'Thank you' to Erika of Snappy Crafts as I have just received a fabulous parcel of goodies today for a swap that we did recently. She really spoilt me and I have lots of things to create with - thanks Erika!
Well that's all from me, I have another stall to man tomorrow so I had better make a few cards to restock from this mornings sales. I will visit you all tomorrow evening for a catch up.

Love the effect you achieved Lorraine, looks amazing. Good luck with the stall tomorrow.

Erika said...

Hi Lorraine, glad you liked your parcel as much as I liked mine.
Thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie today, I love your flocked sentiment, I had a grin on my face whilst typing that, I don't know why?!
Great embellishing too.

Have a super crafty weekend with your market stall, hugs Erika. x

I can totally see how sparkly the sentiment is - and I live it! What a clever use of those micro beads too. Now I'm tempted to make something with them as well. lol
