Oldie Friday. . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone and their pets are ticketyboo.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on Nesta's card. Yes, it was a labour of love stamping all of those roses but she's worth it, bless her. I will show the gift bag next week after my DT postings on Sunday and Monday.

Sorry I'm late in the morning putting this on. I had 2 DT cards to do along with busy couple of days at work, along with other bits and bobs.

John Next Door had suggested I should pop some of my jewellery on as I hadn't done so for a while, so I thought the Oldie Friday spot would be a good place to start.

I made this set for myself. Mr D gave me the pennies to buy the bits as a pressie a couple of years ago as the chain and all the findings are sterling silver and the crystals are Swarovski (I have yet to use any other type of crystal as the quality of Swarovski is magnificent. . . . . bizarrely, I also wear Swarovski Aura perfume too lol!!!)

I think I showed similar in tones of a single colour a while back, that I had made for a stall I had but this is bigger and uses more crystals (the pendant is about 2.5 inches long)

It really does twinkle in the sunlight and does draw comments from folk (good ones thankfully lol!!!)

Hope that you all like the set. Lets face it, I couldn't subject you to another of my Blue Peteresque first card attempts again (well, not for a while anyway hahaha!!!)

Have a good weekend chaps. I've got a busy one with work tomorrow and The Great British Craft Festival on Sunday with Christine Harrop and John Next Door. Its all go !!!

Ooh, and nice to have you back Sandy; you have been missed.

Be good.

  7. Hi Ang,

  8. Hi Ang,
    a very pretty and colourful oldie for Friday.
    Thank you for your lovely comment on my rose.
    It didn't take that long as it was very light cards and I could cut a few in one pass.
    I did find however that was my 2nd attempt, on my 3rd I used my hot glue gun as the glue dries faster, and used the Lidl paper I bought last year and it worked fine.
    Will show that a bit later.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  9. Fantastic pieces, love the beautiful colours.
    Just imagine the effect with the sun shining on them!!!
    Meeting up with Kate tomorrow, really looking forward to a good old "chin wag"
    Have a great weekend
