Oldie for Friday

Hello and Welcome.

It really doesn't seem like a Friday as we were away visiting friends for a few days and I seem to have missed out a day somewhere.

Anyway - It's Friday so I'm linking up with Erika on her Snappy Crafts blog when she invites us to show an old craft item each week.  It doesn't have to be a card.

Leave a comment for Erika and she'll visit you too.

My card today was made probably five years ago.  I used Distress inks through a piece of sequin waste.

The bees are a Judikins mounted stamp and both sentiments are from a Hobby Arts set.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you're doing.

Hi Barb, loving your bee card, great shaped easel card. The honeycomb inked background works so well with the wee bees, great sparkle too.

'Missed out a day'... That's funny! I feel like that some weeks.
Love all the circles and swirls on this design - they compliment each other beautifully. x

Hi Barb,
what a super, super Oldie today.
I love the wonderful shaped easel design, and all the wonderful work involved with the creation of this.
That sentiment stamp is awesome, and I love the bess also.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

This is beautiful Barb and I love the shaped easel and the honey coloured stencilling goes so prettily with your cute bees and circular sentiments. x

Home again for a few days so am catching up in blogland Barb. This is a great shape - the use of the sequin waste as a stencil was a great idea!

Nice to revisit old cards and good old sequin waste looks good as honeycomb, how we managed before dies!

Your card is bee-u-tiful! I couldn't resist a pun! Love this scalloped circle easel style! This is a nice older card to show off because it's still quite relevant with today's trends! Have a great weekend!

Great honeycomb idea! This is a lovely card...great design!

Aquarius said...

The sponged background is so right to go with these bees - great golden oldie. Thanks for your comments, especially interesting to see you'd commented on a couple of my older cards (much older) and I'd completely forgotten about that brilliant sheep stamp which I love(d) so will have to dig deep to bring it into the limelight again. Must prove that I have way too much 'stuff' but don't we all??

Greta said...

Very clever "stencil" & darling card, Barb!

Alison C said...

Fridays do seem to come round remarkably quickly, and now we are at the end of July. Cute bees on you lovely card. I have that sentiment set and use it all the time.

Mrs A. said...
