Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

Well I finally made it into the craft room last night and managed a couple of hours of messy fun, the results of which you will see sometime soon.

As it's Friday once more...who pinched my week!! I'm off to join Erika to share a golden oldie.

The original post for my card can be found here. Stamp is from LOTV, die is from Cheery Lynn. This was my first (and probably only!) attempt at ribbon weaving on a card which ended up as a birthday card for my Mum in 2011.

Challenges entered:
Throwback Thursdays - Mother's Day/Background technique

I'll be back later with some exciting news!!
