It's about sharing an oldie with me?

Hello folks, did you miss me?
I had meant to post whilst I was away the last week but unfortunately the site we stayed only had Internet connection at the bar.  No mobile signal either!
Sorry Kate I haven't been in touch with you but I haven't been able to get hold of you.  Will sort something out later today when I am unpacked and sorted.

We stayed here.  It is a lovely site only about 15 minutes from family, so handy too.  The weather was interesting with the tail end of the wet and windy hurricane!  It was a little blowy in a static caravan!
I enjoyed time to do a little crocheting, played plenty of board games and did a little shopping.  This was only marred by some nice person hacking my credit card and treating themselves to flights and a couple of holiday!  Scum.  Luckily I managed to get hold of the credit card company and put a halt to anymore shenanigans.
It was great to see my parents and have some quality time with them.

Back to crafting and I have a couple of things to show you but first it's Friday so you know what that means, time to share an oldie with me.  Today's oldie is a wreath calendar, something a little different.

Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities die large scalloped circles for the base of the wreath.
For the flowers I have used Shapeabilities Anemone flower topper, Spiral blossom 1, Foliage and Ironworks motif.
Card stock by American craft and MME Loss and Found Union Square.
Calender from Papercrafts Boutique.
Bling from K & Company.
Glitter Stickles red and Distress ink Vintage Photo.

I'd love to see your oldies so don't forget to leave a comment below then I can visit you.  
It only remains for me to wish you all the very best for the weekend, back to work for me tomorrow but I am hoping to have some crafty fun on Sunday.  More from me later.  x

I am so sorry you had your card hacked, these people need to be really dealt with, I hope they don't get off on there holiday aboard or where ever they were going and spend a few years in a cell. Glad you got away, pity about the weather, but it was nice to be near family.
Love your wreath. Great idea. I have posted an oldie today. Hope you get some crafty time after all the washing is done. Hazel xx

Hi Erika,
welcome back, and where you stayed looks really fab too.
Sounds like you had a great time except for the credit card bit.
Love your superb creation today.
The flowers are superb and the colours are wonderful.
I am very fond of that Anemone Die.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
