Let's share an oldie this Friday!

Morning crafters, hope you're all well!
Friday already so time to visit Erika & join in with her invitation to
'Share an Oldie''s just for fun & it IS fun to revisit past makes!
I love to see how my 'style' has I still like the card? Would I 
it the same way again? Is it good enough?  I think mostly us crafters are very
 critical of our own work, don't you? 
So today I'm sharing a card I made about 18 months ago, the image is from 
D'Arcy's Diaries & I think I coloured it with Spectrum Noir pens. Would I make
it the same today? No..........I'd ditch those dots lol........what was I thinking?
Still love the colours though & I do love distressing the edges of paper!!
Rightio, off to do something useful......and I don't mean the ironing.....I'm now
the proud owner of one empty ironing basket......can you believe it....9
days into the New Year and I HAVE NO IRONING.....none, not one single
item......yippee!!!! Think I might have a trip into town to celebrate!
Thanks for calling.....whatever you're up to have a lovely day!

  6. Jo, your card is fab, great colours. Oh you are lucky having no ironing, I don't mind doing it it's the putting away. At least now with not doing the ironing at work it makes life easier for me, girls still don't put their ironing away and I think the new cleaner see what I meant with, " do it but don't fuss over it". Especially when you see the pile you put on Anna's bed one day, on the floor the next. Keep up the good work! Hazel x

  7. I love your card Jo. It is fantastic. Hope you New Year is off to a great start. Hugs, joann

  8. A wonderful oldie Jo, love the neutral beiges. Now I love ironing I am sad to say so I don't even possess an ironing basket because I do it as soon as it is dry (even knickers lol)!! Susan x
