Golden Oldie...

Happy Tuesday,

Another day another golden oldie.  I will be starting with new posts and cards from this weekend so keep your eyes peeled!

Todays golden oldie is from January 2014 and I thought I would share a few projects I made with the same die.  Ive lost the name of this one but it is a tonic die.

These really show my love of a lattice die!



  1. Hi John.
    Thank you for all the blasts from the past, they are all lovely.
    Take care and have fun Kitty.

  2. Good morning John, have to say I really wish it was "you" on the telly last night and today.
    Great cards, all so different using the very same Die.
    Thank you for showing these, we all have Dies that have gravitated to the back of the box. We need to get them out and create with them again.
    Have a great day.

  26. Hi John great selection of cards. You seemed to have prompted a few folk to dig their old dies out of the cupboard which is no bad thing! Love from Jackie xx

  31. Hi John managed to work out how to comment on my kindle Love the lattice samples. Also missing you on tv

  32. Hi John. I can understand why you like the lattice dies so much because I do too. I do enjoy seeing some of your older cards as they give reminders of what can be achieved with the dies.


  33. Hello John,
    I'm sorry too that we aren't seeing all the samples you had prepared . I do hope we will be able to see them in future! Today's cards are lovely and I like lattice Dies too.
    It's a sad day in the Manchester area today! Our lives have to go on though or else these evil people will have won!
    Love Myra x

  34. Lovely cards John which you'd obviously showed before I found your blog So it's lovely to see older projects and it shows that they are still so good to use
    Thoughts are with the families of the Manchester victims today But as someone has already said Life goes on so that can show they are not going to win xx
