18th Birthday

Good morning all.

Another quiet day yesterday, did manage to get some crafting done last night which you'll see in a day or two.

Today I'm heading over to see Erika at Snappy Crafts to share a golden oldie.

I think this is the earliest card I have a photo of...from June 2006 it was for hubby's cousin's daughter. Another overload of peel offs and a pretty envelope to match! I think everything on this card came from Create and Craft...gosh I must have spent some money with them in those days!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.


  1. Hi Carol oh this is a trip down memory lane - how on earth did we manage without our peel offs?? Great design and idea. My sister and I bought a big bunch of peel offs from Create and Craft - don't think we ever used them!! Susan x

  2. A fabulous oldie Carol, Create & Craft have a lot to answer for don't they!

  3. Good afternoon Carol,
    You beautiful card brought back memories.
    Peel offs and self adhesive ribbon what more could we want in those days???

  5. Hi Carol and thanks for joining me today, sharing an oldie. It's a great way to see how everyone has progressed over the years. I love how you have all the bubbles and squiggles coming out of the bottle, great idea.
    Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

  6. Hi Carol your card is an absolute cracker l love to see earlier creations by all xx

  7. Fab card Carol I can remember the days when stickers played a big part in my crafting, how things change, it is lovely to look back on what our styles were, I don't think I have any pictures of my oldies but I enjoy seeing others.

  8. Fabulous card Carol, love the design, nothing wrong with those peel offs, love it, hugs Kate x

  9. Wow, this is fabulous. No way did anything I did in 2006 (if I was even making cards then!) look this super. Love the way you have that bottle of sparkly fizzy stuff popping out of that envelope fold. So much texture and bling...it's gorgeous. TFS & can't wait to see the gelli play results. I need to get back to that again. Happy Wkend and hugs.
