A Walk in the Snow, for Friday Oldie!

Hello Folks, Friday again, another week has whizzed by. Hoping that you are all well, but if not here is a HUG and some kind wishes for a speedy recovery.

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and leaving your kind comments, I do appreciate the time it takes, but I love reading them so please keep them coming.

Well the craft fair is this weekend and I've been beavering away with the cards and whatnot, the whatnot's I've not got many of, it's hard work all this card making, I've spent a while making another star box, and I wanted to do more boxes, but to be honest, I've sickened myself with paper craft......for a while anyway.

So it's time for another Oldie, all started by Erika of Snappy Crafts and you can find her blog here
to share some our our earlier handmade projects, doesn't have to be cards, could be sewing, knitting, Jewellery, just something handmade.  It's good to look back at how our crafting has changed, developed over time. Here is my offering;
This was one I made for Damian and Moreen and the image is from Justinklined, and I love it. The inspiration was taken from Creative Stamping magazine. The holly stamps are part of the set and there are Memory box dies there too.  I can't remember what the white paste is framing the couple, but it was so effective, don't even know If I've got any left. have to say, I loved this card at the time, and still do.

Well that's me for now, I will take some photos of my stall, if it looks good. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Dale has been sewing and it sounds as if she has managed to have quite a lot of crafty people having stalls, so all we need is interested buyers.

Have a smashing weekend and see you soon

Great to look back, lovely snowy scene. Hope the fair goes well. Some do, some don't so don't despair if you don't do well, it isn't you just that you get a lot of browsers at some fairs x

Good morning Kate, good luck with your Craft Fair.
Please don't stress your self, you'll be just fine.
Will tell you one thing, you NEVER get 2 the same when you do Craft Fairs.
This one can be fantastic and the next not so good ..... nothing funnier than Folk!!
I remember your card, loved it at the time and still love it.
It's the image of the couple that sets the mood.
(((hugs)) and good luck

Lovely texture and a beautiful snowy scene on your 'oldie' share for today Kate. This is certainly a gorgeous card and I love it too.
You have been given some great advice above about the craft fairs, I have had similar experiences and you need to just enjoy the day and have a good time - hope you do well though as all the work that you have put in deserves a good reward. Good luck!

Christine Harrop said...

I really love the texture you have added to this super Christmas card Kate. Good luck with the craft fair. Hugs Christine xx

Erika said...

Good luck with your craft fair Kate.
A super oldie today, love the paste/snowy background and lovely wintery image. A perfect Christmas card.

As for my friends son's name, his Dad is Portuguese.
Babies name is Joao Davide which is John David in English but they've picked the Portuguese version. I think it sounds better especially as he has a Portuguese surname too.

Have a super weekend and thanks for sharing an oldie with me today.

Hugs Erika. x

Stunning design Kate, love the dimension and scene. I have sort of lost my muse (my source of inspiration) for a while making cards also. I hope I find it again soon.
