Golden Oldie Friday

Good morning all.

We had a beautiful spring day here yesterday, just a shame the clear skies and sunshine haven't lasted until today for the solar eclipse. Judging by the forecast I don't think we'll see very much if anything of it. Updated, as this was scheduled last night, to say we have beautiful sunshine to view the eclipse.

Managed some crafting time yesterday, the results of which you'll see tomorrow...another project which has taken days to finish. 

Domestic Goddess day again, although my back decided to go last night so it might be a very quick once over.

I'm joining Erika at Snappy Crafts again today to show a golden oldie...I've gone back to 2009 to show the card I made for Mum on Mother's Day that year.

I think this is the only word card I've ever made...using the Flower Fairy CD from Crafter's Companion, ribbons and various embellishments. I don't know how I found the time or the patience to make something like this when I was working full time, I don't have either the time or the patience now I've retired!!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you've got planned.


  1. Beautiful card. I remember making those. Seems along time ago now.. Have a Good Day. Hugs Rita xxx

  2. This is beautiful Carol, you must have had lots of patience, I bet your Mum loved it.
    I hope you managed to see the eclipse, it was too cloudy here, it just got quite dark and cold - I think they managed to see it at Stonehenge which is only about 15 miles away!.

  3. Carol, this is lovely, bet your Mum loved it.
    hugs Jo x

  4. Hi Carol, too cloudy here for the eclipse but it did go very dark, the sun didn't come out till later.

    oh Carole this is gorgeous and stunningly beautiful.
    Love the fab pink paper used and all the embellies too.
    I have made a load of word books in the past, and always forgot to photograph them, so I know all the work involved in these.
