Sunflowers for Friday Oldie!

Good Morning......just and how are you all today?? Crivens, another Friday! can you believe it!
Anyway, it's a lovely sunny day here in Inverness and I've got the fiddle playing going on upstairs at the moment, practise session move up from this evening as we are going out to see the new film of Macbeth. I believe it's all spoken in the original text.  I grew to love Shakespear whilst at school and would read it for pleasure and have acted in quite a few plays as we had a teacher who had a passion for the Bard and drama and started a Shakespearean drama group. Looking forward to that.

For now though I have a card for Friday Oldie, where we share something we have handmade a while ago. Started by Erika of Snappy Crafts,just a bit of fun to see how our crafting has changed, developed, improved over time. There is quite a few of us have joined her, so why don't you, as I say it's just a bit of fun.  Here is mine ;
Most of you will recognise this lovely LOTV image of sunflowers and I think I coloured them in with Promarkers. Just thinking how lovely this is and must use this stamp again.

Before I go I just want to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my previous card, you are so very kind and I do appreciated each and every comment.

I'm off now to fix the chains on our vertical blinds, Teallach has made such a mess of them I've had to buy new ones, the chains not the blinds, although he manage to rip one of the veins, he's some boy.
Have a lovely day and a super weekend and see you soon,

Hi Kate, your card is very pretty. That's a super stamp. I've not seen it before.

I was amused by the title of your blog. I assume you knit them. Well I've never knitted socks but wear them most of the time as I mainly wear trousers and jeans. I have often thought if I suddenly became rich I would have a new pair of socks every day. I love putting on a new socks.

Good luck with getting your blind sorted out. Have a great weekend. Barbxx

Hi again Kate, I was interested to read about the mountains on Skye. It's not something I know about. Both of your cats are beauties. We are dog people. Our two girls are on my sidebar. I think both cats and dogs are very special in our lives and it is so difficult when they have to leave us.

I can't see your photo amongst followers so do hope it worked ok. I am your new follower too. Barbxx

The sunflowers are so beautiful, Kate, and the shadowing gives a nice 3D effect. I hope the film was enjoyable, I share your love for Shakespeare. I saw a play as a teenager and has been hooked ever since. Enjoy your weekend sweetie :)

Love and hugs

Lovely vase of sunflowers, love them! I have a blue watering can in my window full of them. Your boy just wants to see what is going on outside when he isn't out there himself, our pup does the same with the curtains.
