Some Thursday Throwback cards


Good morning my lovelies,

I hope today is a beautifully sunny one wherever you are, we had a mix of cloud and sun yesterday,  we managed to get washing dry though, which is always a bonus, I had a lovely visitor yesterday,  Sonia very kindly drove all the way over to help me choose a dress for Emily's wedding, I really did appreciate that you drove all the way to help me my lovely 😍 

We did play about with some crafting in the afternoon but I didn't get to finish a card so I thought I would share a couple of 'throwback' cards, from 2019 (how is that 5 years ago)

The top one is a Alcohol ink background, the second is the 'caught in crystal' technique. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day,  

Love and hugs to all of you, 

Sandra xxx


  1. Two great throwback cards I ought to get my over the edge dies out and play
    I find it’s so much better trying on clothes with a friend I am hopeless at deciding what I like etc
    We went looking for bathroom furniture yesterday There is so much choice! I can away confused!
    Today is Oscar’s birthday We hope to visit after school to give him his presents and card
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi Sandra and all looking in today.
    Both cards deserve a second showing. I love how the backgrounds glisten and shine in the light. It doesn’t seem possible that they are 5 years old!!! How lovely that Sonia came to help you.
    I am really missing our weekly meet ups and looking forward to getting back to them my lovely xx
    I hope you all have the same beautiful blue skies that we have here at the moment. 🀞🏼it stays for the day. I hope you all have a good day anyway. Take care. Love Sue xx

  3. Hi everyone
    Two beautiful cards that is lovely to see again. How nice is Sonia coming over to help with choosing a dress, always nice to know if it's ok.
    Not sure what we do today. Washing machine is going and have some cards to make, May is a busy month for birthdays.
    Have a good day everyone and take care. Many hugs to you all, Maria xx

  4. Hi everyone
    Love both of your beautiful cards today 😍
    We had a lovely day yesterday, and your wedding outfits are gorgeous ☺️ It was wonderful to spend the day with you, and Paul and Lucy, Bella and Milo. I’m sorry I didn’t get to see Sophie too πŸ₯°
    Karen, a Happy Birthday to Oscar πŸ₯³ xx
    I hope you’re all having a good day
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  5. Hello Sandra and everyone
    Sonia you are a star 🌟, it’s always good to have a second opinion when choosing an outfit for a wedding, especially when it’s someone so close. I sure Sandra really valued your opinion, family are not always the best at giving advice for these occasions.
    Lovely throwback cards, the lovely thing is that they have not dated so the dies are good to use as when we first got them.
    Didn’t sleep very well last night so have spent most of the day taking things easy .
    Hope you have had a good day, Hugs Brenda xxx

  6. Hello, back to rain and using tumble dryer. It’s also much colder.

    Love today’s throw back cards, still as fresh as when you made them.
    How lovely that Sonia came over to help you choose a dress, I only wear trousers mostly, so find it most difficult with dresses.
    Have a good night all, Lilian
