An Old Flapper for Friday Oldie!

Good Afternoon Everyone, I do hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely weather that has unexpectendly arrived, but if your not so well, I hope you feel better soon.

I wan't to say a big thank you for all the lovely, kind comments on my last card, I appreciate the time everyone takes to visit and comment.

Well it's Friday once again, how quickly they come around and of course it is time for a Friday Oldie. This piece of fun was started by Erika of Snappy Crafts and you can find her here.
It's all about sharing a handmade project from times past and it can be anything, cards, knitting, scrapbooking. It's good to see how our crafting has changed over time, and it is just fun. So here is mine and it is a real oldie, in fact I didn't even know I still had this,

I found this when clearing out ringbind folder, and believe it or not it is the first ever CD card I ever did, well you can tell that.  It's from MCS.  I don't even know if I've done I suppose it's pyrimage properly. It's all been printed on cheap photocopy paper, with glue which is not sticking it all together.
The card base is a cheap one which hardly stands up. However the insert is better. 
I just laughed when I saw this and thought the perfect project for today. I'm going to stick it all down better and stick it up on my gallery, which is the cupboard door of the spare room, just to remind myself of how I've improved.

I've been informed that there is on Corrie tonight that it's the Rugby again, so that means I'll be able to get around to visit you later on.

Enjoy your day and I'll see you soon,

Hi Kate
Well, yes you have come a very long way since you made this one.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Kate, a super oldie, what a difference to the cards you make now. I love how your style has changed and how many more techniques you use now.
The sentiment is perfect for the style of card.

Thanks for sharing your oldie today, have a super weekend.
It was beautiful here again today, spent the evening at the harbour and saw the dolphins, great end to the day.

Happy crafting, hugs Erika. x

Hi Kate,
well all I can say is I wish my very older cards looked as good.
As Ang says I just couldn't show some of my very early ones, mind you I didn't photograph them then either so I couldn't show them could I.
Love the Art Deco style of the card.
Didn't they sure know how to do things in style then.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Well,it looks great to my eyes! I love these layers, and I like the idea of the rectangular shapes set into the oval one. You may see all the flaws, but I like it lots. It's quite interesting to see how our styles change as our skills get better, isn't it? Enjoy your lovely weather and have a wonderful wkend. TFS

Katie, you are so funny. We all have those cards. When I look back at the first card I posted on my blog in 2008, it makes me laugh. This flapper image is wonderful and the inside decorated too!! Enjoy your day.
