It's FFFFFFriday, time to share an old crafting project.

Good morning to you and how are you this Friday?
It's a bit cloudy this morning but hopefully it will brighten later.  Day off today and lots to get through but lets start with sharing an oldie.

I created this card by using 2 x 6 x 12" strips of Ranger Adirondack canvas textured card stock.  I scored the card 1",1 1/2", 2 1/2", 7 1/2",8 1/2", 9" and cut off at 10".  First I covered the front strip with MME The sweetest thing Bluebell paper then I cut two windows with a Classic Spellbinder square die and one of the Back to basic tags dies.  I stamped onto acetate with my sentiment from Hero Arts Treasure the moments and added to the rear of the first strip with foam pads.  The inside of the card is decorated with more Bluebell paper and 3 x butterflies from Spellbinders Les Papillions two and pearls.  The edge of the card is decorated with Edgeabilties dies Classic petal before putting the whole card together.

I haven't made this style of card for a while but I do love the shape.

I'd love it if you'd join me in sharing an old project, just for fun.  It's great to see how everyone's style changes over time.  All I ask is that you leave a wee comment below, that way I know you are joining me.  I will visit everyone who does.
Sharing the joys of crafting!

Tomorrow it is my wee man's birthday so I better get a card sorted today.  Last minute as always!  He has a party which my husband has taken charge of as I'll be at work.  I shall just be turning up for the best bit, cake, and to take the kids home.....result!

At work we are also supporting Prostate cancer this weekend.  We will be bag packing and cycling, as well as working, it should make for a fun time.  A few of us are also baking for the staff too.
With that in mind I better get myself sorted and get that oven on.  Now what to bake?!

Have a super Friday and even better weekend.
Oh and happy crafting too.  x
