Share an oldie Friday.......go on you know you want to. Plus my bunting makes an emergency stop!

I was going to say good morning to you all but I've just looked at the clock....where has my morning gone?
Mind you I have walked the dog, cleaned the bathroom, had wood delivered, washed up and the washing machine is on plus I have two boys home not feeling very well.
A normal day then?  Apart from the boys home.
I also intend to cook very slowly a joint of pork this afternoon and bake cakes.  The pork for tea and the cakes for my boss who has his last day with us tomorrow before moving on, so I thought I'd take in a treat.

Firstly today I wanted to share an oldie with you....I am going to keep plodding on with this one, maybe you might decide to join me, maybe not.

This was an 8" card done for a demonstration at Papercrafts Boutique in Elgin, all products are listed below.
Edgeabilities Classic triple scallops, Shapeabilities Labels 2, Fancy tags 2 and Nestabilities Beaded ovals.
The paper is K & Company Poppyseed Shimmer 12" pad.
Sentiment is Marion Emberson stamps It's all in the words.
Seam binding and pearls from my stash.
This card is so my colours rather than pink and girly, it was also a bit of a whooper.  Sue Wilson always seems to make these bigger cards and I can so see the appeal as you can get so much more detail onto them especially to showcase dies.  As for the postage....that would be a different matter.

Back to today and I continued yesterday with this weeks project.  As I had some material left I started to do some bunting, I did go for three large flags rather than small ones but as you can see from this picture, as expected. I did run out of red seam binding.  It is on my shopping list for after work tomorrow as I am itching to finish it.
I don't know what is wrong with me actually trying to get projects finished and in one week too?! Very scary.

It shouldn't take long to finish.  I will share it next week with you all.

Back to today and I am away to the Post office then back to do lunch for the boys.  Then I shall be donning my apron and making a mess in the kitchen.  Enjoy your Friday and the coming weekend.  I hope you find time for some crafty fun.  x
