Oldie For Friday. . . . . . BOGOF

Good morning Friends, Romans, Bloggers. Hope you are all well.

I have to say a big thank you from the heart of my bottom, for your wonderful comments and to my new followers Sheila, Bridget and Cathie . A big splashing welcome to The Pond.
Hello to Messycrafter too. I am overwhelmed by how many people have come for a paddle.

Now, today's offerings are joining in with Patricia and others with her blogging chum Erica's "Oldie for Friday" where you show an old project (or 2 in my case today).
I decided to re-show these cards as a few folk commented on a recent card, that they had not seen fuchsias done on a card before. Also, my newer followers may not have seen these cards as they were featured in June and August 2013 (sent to my good friends, the infamous Nesta and the lovely David).

This one went to best buddy Nesta (for those who don't know, its not her real name but my nickname for her is Nesta Vipers. . . . .she didn't want her real name on the blog as she's wanted on Crimewatch lol!!!)

My good friend David (real name) was the recipient of this one as he's a very keen gardener.

There's fuchsias galore and roses, carnations, daisies and allsorts all die cut and lovingly rolled, embossed, tweaked and glued.

Hope those of you who saw these first time around don't mind seeing them again.

Now, to answer a few comments from my previous post. . . . . . . . . .
Jackie, the Mrs Duck and John show? Heavens to murgatroyd, I think the Channel would be shut down lol!
Norah, Nesta's nIece is not in the least bit domesticated so I would doubt she would recognise a frying pan or rolling pin lol!
Karenlotty, hope that Mexican weather picks up but there is always tequila!
Sue P, it was actually Mr Duck's thong you found. We thought the local kids had nicked it for a catapult. If it fits Graham, you're welcome to keep it, hahaha!

This little blog has made me some wonderful friends. The first person I met was John and then Christine, Hazel, Patricia, Kate, Sue J and Sue P and its fantastic. Thank you Hazel for being one of the first to click on the duck as its led to many special times. 
In this difficult world its nice to know that there's still some genuine people out there so to my paddling chums, old and new, I salute you all!

Don't forget to leave a comment on my last post (and be a follower) by tomorrow night if you want to be in the Ducky Draw for a pressie.

Enjoy your weekend and be good.

  1. Hi Ang. Thanks for showing these two beauties. I was one that said that I had never seen fushias before, I love them. Any chance you could show how you make them ? Have a good weekend. Take care.

  2. Hi Ang, wow these cards are lovely, you must have the patience of a saint to cut and put all those flowers together. I am enjoying looking back over your older posts, very inspiring. Do I really have to work today? Would rather be creating! Have a great Friday. Bx

  3. Good morning, Ang. These two cards are still as beautiful, works of Art and I certainly don't mind seeing them again. Thank you for a lovely start to this Friday morning, with your great sense of humour. Enjoy what ever you are up to today. We should have been heading your way tomorrow but Charlie has a sore back and sitting for hours in the car just wouldn't do it sny good ( was going to get him to go via where you work and hope you were there. Never mind in two weeks time we will see you. Hazel xx

  4. Good morning Ang,

    Oooooopps!! my head is still in Florida and I forgot about "oldie for Friday"
    I sitting having my Tea & Toast then off to pick up Elaine to go to SEEC in Glasgow for the HobbyCraft Show. All the ladies from the Craft Class are going and included me even though I have been away.

  8. Hi Ange,
    As one who is a recent newbie to your blog I haven't seen these wonderful cards, They're like having a bouquet of flowers...beautiful and full of colour. The flowers look so life like too. Well done Ange.

    Love Sheila xx

  9. Your flowers are so beautiful and life like i can almost smell them , both cards are stunning , well done Ang
    Take Care

  10. Good morning Ang,
    oh boy i am so glad that you decided to reshow these as i haven't got as far back as that yet in your posts. I fell in love with the first one as it was unfolding before my eyes flower, it is so beautiful, so bright and vibrant and real looking and then the next one unfolded. Now i can't pick between the two as both are extraordinary pieces of art. The extremely lucky recipients i hope have them in a picture frame because i just think they are magnificent Ang. Why oh Why did you not enter any of these specimens as part of your audition? You would have walked it or paddled it and i bet i am not the only one to think this, just wait and see?
    Take care dear ducky
    Love and crafty padding

  11. Morning Ang,
    Still beautiful second time round, must have taken an age to cut a shape all of the flowers, a work of love.

  12. Absolutely gorgeous Ang, all those beautiful flowers and the colours, they are feasts for the eyes.
    I love reading your humourous blog, I always find something to smile at.
    Not be long now......... hugs Kate x

  13. Your flowers still look as fresh as the first time you showed us Ang, just love those fuchsias. Jackie xx

  14. Holy BLEEP! These are fantastic Ang! WOW, look at all those amazing flowers and especially those fuchsias, absolutely amazing! This feels like a summer garden party that I missed, so glad you posted them again for us newbies! Did I say wow yet? Extra big flower-making hugs to you!! :)

  15. Hi Ang,

  16. Hi Ang,
    lovely to see you joining in with the Oldie for Friday, and what superb creations too.
    Love every bit of them.
    I think I have only used my fuchsias I made once on a card.
    So thanks for reminding me about them,as they are in box somewhere in my craft room.
    Now this is funny every time I blog lately I seem to follow Jacqui Js comment, on nearly every blog I visit.
    We must have a connection or similar time schedule. lol.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  17. Still as impressive second time around - luv them both and the fuchsias are amazing - remember being blown away by the amount of work involved the first time around and still feel the same now xx enjoy the weekend - off to the footy tomorrow - only going coz I'm getting fed while I'm there lol xx GailT xx

  18. Beautiful! I love the fuchsias! Thanks for the re-run since I missed it the first time. By far your blog is the most entertaining one I read. Have a great day Ang!

  19. Loved your fuchsias I tried to find mine so that I could post them but goodness knows where they are. So much stash I can't find them they will turn up one day.
    Have been trying to find homes for all my new purchases and even had a play today. Have a good weekend.

  20. Hi Ang
    Two beautiful cards! They are just bursting with flowers! I love the fuchsias. I think I've missed a thread somewhere - have you explained how to make them? Two weeks to NEC! I'd love to meet up with any blog pals on the Friday, if anyone is going? Best wishes, Anne O
