Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

Gosh where did my week go? I know I lost yesterday amid planning our trip to New Zealand....I think hubby and I spent about 6 hours in front of the computer and we're still only 2 weeks into the trip....I'm going to need a holiday to get over planning this one!

If it's Friday again it must be time to visit Erika and share a Golden Oldie...this week I have three to share with you, the kids Christmas cards from 2007!


The boys cards were made with a Joanna Sheen CD...either Vintage Christmas or Enchanted Christmas, Lora's card was stuff from my stash. Tomorrow you will see this year's cards. I think my card making has improved somewhat since 2007 and thankfully my photography skills have (or maybe just the camera has!).

Laundry, cleaning and more planning planned for today and I must get organised for Halloween, I'm way behind this year and no doubt it will be busy.

Enjoy your weekend.


  1. It's lovely to see the Christmas cards that your children made. Do they still make cards. Have a lovely weekend. Barbxx

  2. Your trip sounds very exciting Carol. If you need anyone to carry your bags I can be available. ;)
    A lovely selection of oldie Christmas cards, what a change to what you produce now. I love to see how peoples style has changed over the years. The first one is my favourite, I love the effect, it makes the snowmen look as if they're down a tunnel.
    Who doesn't love a traditional Santa on your other two cards? Just perfect for Christmas.

    Have a super weekend, and thanks for joining me sharing an oldie today.

    Hugs Erika. x

  3. Hi Carol,
    what great Oldies today.
    fab designs, and what a wonderful CD they are crafted from.
    I don't think I have ever seen that CD.
    I do have her Victorian Birthdays one though.
    I must have missed that at sometime.
    Your planning for your visit to New Zealand sounds like a real headache, but I am sure it will all be worth it in the end.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
