A Ballerina for Oldie for Friday!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all good, but if not I'm sending out kind thought and hugs that you'll feel better soon.

Thanks to all who visited and left comments on my last card, your very kind. Thank you too for your good wishes about Alistair putting in the Velux window.
What a job, it's a hugely heavy window, and luckily our young neighbour stopped by to see how it was done as he is needing to replace his and he ended up helping when they were trying to put the window back in.  Both Alistair and Bill said his help was just great, and would have had quite a bit of trouble if he had'nt been there.  Anyway, it's in, not leaking and looks lovely and clean when I open the blind.  When we got CRSmith in to give a quote, we asked if it was a big job, 1/2 hour he told us, well the lads were a bit longer than that, but did a good job.

I've got an Oldie for Friday;
This card was made from images, papers, sentiment and embellishments, Paintshop Poppets from Crafter's Companion CD
I've not used anything from this CD in ages, might have a look through it again because ther are some lovely images.
I've only tomorrow to go at work and then I'm off for a few days, and I've got to events to look forward to, on Saturday I'm going down to Perth to meet up with two of our Blogging Friends, Patricia from Summerhouse Crafts and her sister Hazel, Baskets of Joy, their friend Elaine is coming along too, so I'm really looking forward to that, it's been so long since we managed a meet up, last November actually.

On Sunday our friends Dale and Stewart and their Grandson Kerr are coming for a couple of days, mainly so that Kerr can go fossil hunting with Alistair, he is very keen on geology.  We are hoping for some decent weather.  So, loads to lookforward to.

Anyway, I'll finish now, expecting my DH back from a day in the hills, he's been away to Kintail, so he probably not have climbed just one mountain, he's more than likely climbed more and he'll be whacked.
So take care everyone and see you soon.   Scheduling this post.

Hi Kate and thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie this Friday. I love your card, lovely colours and love the touch of glitter on the tutu.
It sounds as if you have a fun packed weekend planned, say hi to the girls in Perth and have a fabulous time.

Hi Kate,
that is a very beautiful card.
I love that super image, and your design, and colours are wonderful.
So glad all went well with the window, I was quite worried.
Enjoy your day with the 2 fab sisters and their friend Elaine.
Now it is quite a few years since I was at Perth, but form what I can remember it is a lovely place to shop, and plenty of lovely places to have coffee and chat.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
