"Friday Oldie" and a Starving Kitty!

Good Afternoon Everyone, and I hope you are all well and have plans of a terrific weekend.  Let's hope that we all have some good Summer weather. Hasn't it been awful, can hardly believe that we are almost out of June and the weather has been so dark, cold and rainy. However nothing we can do about that, except wear the right clothes as Billy Connolly would say.  We are quite thundery here in Inverness, muggy warmth.

Thank you for your kind comments on yesterdays card and your words if encouragement as I begin my retirement, it's all a bit strange, but at least I remembered not to get up for work, but I has to get up and go for food for Teallach, can you believe he had none in his cupboard, he wasn't amused I can tell you and this has never happened before, so it just goes to show where my head was to forget to stock up in cat food. In fact here was the consequences of that;
Good I've spotted my breakfast!

Where'd he go!
Poor boy has now been well fed and is curled up on his cushion fast asleep.

My "Oldie" for today;
One of my favourite stamps from Papermaina, and I think it's Promarkers I used to colour it. It's a large stamps so makes a super topper.

Why not join Erika of Snappy Crafts showing handmade projects from earlier in your crafting career. It's just a bit of fun and it's god to see how you've progressed, changed style and even all the different crafts that you do.

It's my friend Linda's 60th today so I'm joining her and her mum along with another friend for a meal tonight. She is having a party tomorrow night, but I'm not a party person, so this will be lovely tonight.

That's me for now folks, I must try and get around to see you over the weekend, so take care and see you soon,

Hi Kate
Poor T Boy! Hope he got a nice juicy steak as an apology (there are some moments where just Whiskas won't do!)
Fab festive creation with your sleigh.
Enjoy your meal out tonight.

Smashing oldie Kate, looks like a wonderful stamp. Poor Teallach, I'm sure he wasn't amused being left hungry.Our cat would eat all day long if you put out enough food, he steals the poor dogs food at every opportunity.

I hope you enjoy your evening.

Hazel said...

Kate, love the photos, would you believe I carry a box of cat food in my car, and we don't own one? But the amount of times I have gone to work or ?Gillian's and there hasn't been any to feed the cats. So it's pay off a few times. Love your oldie I completely forgot it was Friday.
Kate you will wonder how you managed to work and craft etc. since I cut my hours I find I can't fit in less. Enjoy your meal. Hazel x

Poor Teallach :( love the photo's Kate, a cat is very resourceful and he soon started looking for his own breakfast.
Love the Christmas card, I have that sleigh stamp too and it makes a super card front.
Hope you have a lovely meal this evening and enjoy your weekend.

Erika said...

Your cat has purrfect ideas of what he is having for tea!
A great card Kate, I love your bright and cheerful colour combination.
Have a super meal out tonight, just back from one myself with the family after seeing the new Minions film.

Thanks for sharing an oldie, have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

Hi Kate,
Sorry I haven't been commenting, anywhere, recently. The weather may be rubbish, but there are lots of visitors around. They are either climbing the Ben, walking the West Highland Way, or heading to Skye. Whatever hey are doing, it's keeping me busy, and has eaten into my crafting time.
Hope you enjoy your retirement, once you get your head around the idea. If you are like most folk, you will soon be wondering ow you had time to work.

Lovely Christmas card Kate. Enjoyed your story about Teallah and I'm sure he didn't go hungry for too long. Lucky bird took off. LOL. Congrats on your retirement. Now you can craft all day long. How fun is that? ENJOY!

Granmargaret said...

Lovely card. Best wishes on your retirement. I was made redundant in 2013 so after 53 years of working I am also retired. I find there are not enough hours in the day to do all the craft I want to do.

Richard Parker is unaffected by birds. Something wrong with him! Your wee guy is soooo cute. Super oldie, BTW.... I sometimes forget about the card!
