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.

  27. 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??
