Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

Hope no one has blown away yet...our forecast for today is pretty miserable and the high winds are to reach here tonight!

Friday once more, they come around like clockwork  don't they....and the thirteenth at that! My Dad was very superstitious and if he could have stayed in bed on Friday 13th he would have done...if something could go wrong it would that day. We weren't allowed to cross our knives and forks either; or cross on the stairs and he never walked under a ladder...despite being a fireman for forty odd years because they all brought bad luck! I've always wanted to buck the trend just to see what happens lol!

You know the script...I'm joining Erika again to share a Golden Oldie.

Made in 2007, this was hubby's Christmas card. Love seeing parchment craft and this is one of only a few pieces I've ever made myself. I think I gave it to hubby so I could keep it lol. I still have all the gear stashed away, perhaps I'll put it to use when it's unearthed during the move...then again!

Not got any plans for the weekend, think we'll see how the weather pans out...could be a good weekend to craft. Have fun and stay safe everyone.


  1. The weather hasn't been too bad here as yet just a bit wet and windy but I believe the best is yet to come today. I shall be indoors crafting.
    I had a wee go at parchment craft years ago but found I was a little impatient and heavy handed for it, it just took too long and I don't mind fiddly things!
    Your card is lovely, the snowman is cute. The gold tassel give it a real festive feel.

    Thanks for joining me sharing an oldie today, have a super weekend and hope Abigail doesn't affect you too much.

    Hugs Erika. x

  2. A lovely Golden Oldie Carol. He's a lovely snowman. I think snowy scenes are perfect for parchment. I enjoy doing it when I'm in the mood. Barbxx

    Our weather is awful too, and we had sleet this morning and it felt so icey when I was in town, staying in and crafting seems like a good idea, Kate x
