Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

A busy day yesterday so apart from a coat of paint being added to a project in progress there was no crafting done. We spent most of the day in Edinburgh with Lora at a university open day at Queen Margaret's then after a quick tea headed back out to an awards evening at the school where she had been chosen to receive an Outstanding Achievement Award in Higher Modern Studies....cue the proud Mum moment!

Any way we've got to Friday once more so time to pop over to see Erika and share an oldie. As it's our wedding anniversary next week I thought I'd share the one I made for hubby in 2009.

Now many of you may have wondered why I don't make fancy cards for hubby and the kids...this waterfall card (it was considered fancy way back then lol) was out of it's envelope for all of about 5 seconds before hubby had "dismantled" it!! I think he thought he was bell ringing when pulling the tassel!! I vowed never again....and I always keep my vows, hence one of the reasons I'm still married to him after nearly 27 years :)

Images and papers from Joanna Sheen's Enchanted Dreams Cd; tassel also from Joanna. I have to confess to still having a considerable supply of tassels in a multitude of colours...I just couldn't give them away to any old body in case they binned them! Must start making use of them in my mixed media projects...then I can keep them all for myself. 
Someone please tell me I'm not alone and they feel the same about certain crafty products!

I'll be back later tonight with my inspiration post for Happy Little Stampers, meantime have a great weekend whatever you're up to.


  1. Love this, just gorgeous,fab design.xxx

  2. A super waterfall card Carol to share with us today. I had to laugh when you said hubby was a bit heavy handed with it - sort of thing mine would do. Love the pretty papers and birds. Hope your weekend goes well.

  8. A fabulous oldie share Carol, great design - it's a shame hubby was a bit heavy handed.
    Congratulations to Lora, you must be very proud.

  9. Oh I love a waterfall card carol but yes, men can be a bit heavy handed with them! I also agree about not being able to give crafty bits to any old body! they are so precious to us, I like to hang on to them & take them out to admire every now & again! lol

  10. You do make me smile with your posts Carol! Mine would have been just as ham handed if he had been lucky enough for me to make him one like this! Well done Proud Mum on Lora's achievements. Michelle x
