By the Light of the Silvery Moon, "Friday Oldie"

Hello All my Crafty Friends, and Visitors of course and welcome to my little bit of cyber space, I hope you will always want to pop in to see what I'm doing.

Well the sun has been shining for two days now and it has been lovely and warm, long may it last.
I've finished my hours at work for this week and what a tiring week it's been, cleaning out cupboards, shredding documents, the amount of junk that's been collected over the past 24 years is amazing, we have another two weeks of this, I'll be glad when it's all finished.

Anyway enough of that, it's time again for a Friday Oldie, all started by Erika of Snappycrafts and you can find her blog here. 
This is a bit of fun where a few of us share a handmade project from an earlier time, doesn't have to be a card, could be knitting, sewing, just as long as it's handmade.
Here is mine for this week;
No idea who this was made for, but it's one of the lovely LOTV images and my guess is that it would have been coloured with Promarkers.  It's such a sweet image, but on looking at it, I think the colouring leaves a lot to be desired.  I hope I've improved somewhat.

I'm scheduling this post, it's only Thursday, as tomorrow I plan to have a lie in with my book, well I don't sleep and I expect much pampering from hubby as it's my birthday. He is taking me out for a lunch at a Turkish restaurant, I love the food there, and just generally have a fabby day.

Before I go I just want to thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post, I do appreciate your encouragement and support for my efforts.

Hopefully you are all well and enjoying the nice weather, remember the sunscreen.
cheerio for now, I'm off for a wander around your blogs,

PS. having troubling scheduling this, so here it is tonight.

Happy Birthday dear Kate - and cheers to you. I can't think of anything better than a good lie in with a good book and probably a good cup of tea and a biscuit or two. I love to eat out - you can ask me anytime!!!

Cute card - I also love LOTV!!!

Hi Kate
Just catching up after extra days at work.
Firstly HAPPY belated BIRTHDAY !!! Hope you did get your pamper session and a bit of Turkish Delight (ooh, err Mrs!)
Super card with a lovely image. Can even see where you've put a bit of twinkle on the water.
Enjoy your time off.

Hi there Kate - I was just reading some of your other posts and I really feel sorry that your MHU closed down. I spent 27 years with the NHS and the first 22 were at a similar unit to yours. I've seen this happen before and it is so sad for the clients and staff so I can certainly sympathise.

On to your Friday Oldie card - I love looking at cards I made ages ago and checking at how they have changed - for better or worse in some cases - lol!!!

Big hugs to you

hugs, Asha

Oh bit late sorry Kate, thanks for sharing an oldie with me, love the image. It is just perfect for an anniversary card, so cute. Love your shades of grey and is it duck egg blue?

I hope you had a good birthday weekend, it only remains for me to say
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"
Sorry it's late, I hope you got spoilt rotten?

Hugs and happy crafting, Erika. x
