It's crafty oldie time again, that must mean it's Friday.

Good morning to you and how are you this Friday?
I know I say this every week but this week does seem to have flown and to be honest I can't say I've made best use of my time.  Maybe I shall slowly get back to normal after the end of the school holiday.

Friday is all about sharing an old crafting project, just for the "crack" of it.  The only request I have is that if you are joining in you leave a wee comment below, not for my personal benefit but so I can also visit your blog and see what project you have decided to share.  Remember it can be anything at all that is handmade.  It is just nice to share the love of all things homemade.

This is my oldie for today and was part of a class that I taught back in 2011.  We had lots of fun stamping on to acetate, I guess you could say I am a hard task master!
Acetate can be notoriously slippery to stamp on to, you have to be clean, precise and confident when tackling it.  If at first you don't succeed, try again, it is amazing what solutions can wipe away the evidence so you can dry the acetate and have another go.

I have used black and white American craft textured card, Acetate, Martha Stewart punch Deep edge flower bed, Hero art stamps Anytime messages, bling by Zva creative and ribbon from stash.

Are you joining me today re posting an old project, I'd love it if you would.  I will visit all over the weekend to see what you have selected.

I am in work again tomorrow, an early start for me and no doubt it will be a very busy one as it is coming up to the end of the month.  It should make for a very quick day, but then all Saturdays are.
Have a super weekend.

This is a lovely elegant card Erika. The black and white look very striking with the sentiment stamped on to acetate showing through. I have joined in today, thanks for the good wishes for the Market today, I have a few pennies for more crafty stash now :)

What a lovely card Erika. The black and white looks very elegant. I have always been very hit and miss with stamping on acetate. Thank goodness for stazon cleaner, it's saved my pounds in what would have been acetate in the bin!

I'm visiting for the first time after a heads after visiting Carol L's blog.
