Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

I've had a busy couple of days...my sister decided to end her 50th year as she started it by having a day at the races, so it was off down home first thing on Wednesday to join her along with her staff and several customers. We had a fabulous day at Kelso with a lovely meal, good company, a few drinks and a little win. There were canapes waiting for us when we got back to her hotel and a convivial evening was spent in the bar. Yesterday I spent most of the day with Mum and we made a start clearing the family home ready to put it on the market later this year. I came home with a small bag of bits for the craft room including my favourite teaspoons from my childhood which will be appearing on a canvas near you very soon hopefully.

I'm off to join Erika with a golden oldie today.


Made in 2009 as a commission for a regular customer. The stamp is one of my favourites which I have de-blocked and can't for the life of me remember the make! Stamped and heat embossed with gold onto pearlised card, bow and gems added, a bit of embossing and some peel offs...et voila!
