another oldie for Friday...........................

I am sorry about the poor photo quality but as I have mentioned on previous posts - when I was making these cards I starting taking photos for reference only - to give me inspiration when there was none!!!!

told you the picture quality was naff!! mind you so is the card and I really do hope I have improved since this was made for my friends husband who is a keen fisherman - circa 2011.................

I, at least now try to make sure that cards I make these days are made from scratch - ie stamping sentiments and making toppers with die cuts etc........................these were all purchased and other than adding ribbon to the sentiment and covering the card blank with paper - that was the limit of the talent used on this least it was appropriate for the recipient.



  1. Hi Gail
    We all go on our little crafty journeys (sorry, that sounds a bit X Factor again lol!) and testament to that is the mahoosive pile of Hunkydory Christmas toppers I have from 2 years ago. Don't be so hard on yourself chuck. I'm sure your friend and her hubby were more than happy with it.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Gail. We all started off using things that we cringe at now looking back, when I started with my baskets I thought they were wonderful - NOW I would not give them house room. Your card is lovely and I bet your friends husband loved it. Yes we can see you have come a long way, so no more downing yourself. Hazel x

  3. I think this is a fab card and the fishing elements look brilliant. I think it's great that you share some of your older cards too so you can look back at how far you've come on your crafting journey!
