It's Friday again, time to resurrect an oldie, crafty style.

Good morning and how are you this Friday?
April fools day today, did anyone get you this morning?
I wouldn't dream of doing so, it's that time of the week again, time again to share an oldie with me.  You know the drill by now, share a previously posted handmade item and link back to me.  I will visit all who join in.

My oldie today is one from my Sugar bowl days over at the Sugar Nellie challenge blog.
As we have had lighter nights this week with the promise of Spring on the way, I thought Sweet Pea was appropriate for today.

My sweet pea seeds that I planted earlier in the year have also decided to grow and are now about 3 inches in height.  I don't normally have much success with seeds preferring to buy plug plants.  It really is nice when a plan works.

Back to my card.

We've got a little 3D action going on this time.

I have made a 6" box card and popped Lil'l Sweet Pea in the centre coloured with prisma pencils on kraft.  The card is from the Papeterie in Aberdeen, the butterfly die by SU and the Sweet pea sentiment and flowers are by Creative Expression, bling and glitter from my stash.

Have you got an oldie today?
If you have joined me let me take the opportunity to thank you for playing along, I do appreciate it.
It only remains for me to wish you all the very best for the coming weekend.  
I'm off this weekend, mmm what will I get up to?

Sorry ladies I have just popped back on to let you know, thanks to Jenny, that my link up tool isn't working this week.  Upon further investigation apparently you only get one free link and then you are charged for the privilege.  As I make no money from blogging I need to investigate this matter further.  For now if you leave a comment below I will get back to you.
Enjoy the weekend.  x
