Golden Oldie...

Happy Friday,

I'm demonstrating at H&J crafts in Louth today form 10am till 4pm so if you are in the area why not pop in and say hi!

Todays Golden Oldie is a bit of a multi layer fancy but I do love the way it looks like an optical illusion.

Its been fab looking back through some of my golden oldies to see where ideas came from and also how I have developed as a crafter.  I really hope you've enjoyed looking back too!

  26. Hello John,
    I've just googled Louth as Imashamed to say I'd no idea where it was! Now that I know it's in Lincolnshire - it's a wee bit far from Lancashire so I hope you have a lovely day!
    Today's card is lovely! I have smiled at the Peel Off Stickers and your opinion of them! Crafting has changed such a lot! I used to have boxes of them!
    Very hot here today . Hope everyone is enjoying the fine weather.
    Many thanks John,
    Love Myra x

  27. Hi John

  28. I have loved looking back at some of your original cards Quite a few you'd shown before I had discovered you! I have enjoyed it immensely and look forward to see what's coming next
    Today's card is gorgeous and it's a set of dies I don't know

  29. Lovely card today John. Very three dimensional.
    Hope you had a good time today.
    Love Valxxx

  30. Hello John,
    I had no idea this was not a snowflake die until I looked at the original post!! I have this die and have never used it (like a lot of others) but will certainly do something similar this Chr..... Thanks Myra, I had no idea where Louth was either, I thought it was in Scotland!!!
    love Maureen xx

  31. Hi John. What a really fab card, it is so different, I would never have thought of doing something like this. I am sure I have this die somewhere in my crafty stash so perhaps I should search it out and see what I can do with it.


  32. Hi John Very pretty card I like the dimension it has

  33. Lovely golden oldie John. Thank you for sharing all these old projects with us.

  34. Never underestimate the "Joy of Sets" John, that brought back some Happy memories lol.

  35. Ah John I thought u were in Louth in Ireland An said how did I miss u even tho I'd have travelled several hrs to cu, but no u were still in England, more's the pity!!!!. Love your card

  36. This is so lovely! I have this die and have not used it much...not quite sure what to do with it...but you sure have inspired me...thank you for sharing.
