Time to Relax Friday Oldie!

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone!!, at least I hope its a happy one for you, but if not I hope that things get better soon.

Thank you all so much for all the lovely comments on my previous card, I love to read them and take great encouragement from them.

As it's Friday it's time once again to play along with Erika of Snappy Crafts, you can find her here, with sharing a handmade project that you've made at an earlier time.  It doesn't have to be a card, just something hand made. It's just for fun and there are now quite a few of us crafties sharing, it's god to look back and see how our styles have changed, been added to, or just improved and developed.
 I know I have changed in so many ways over the few years I've been making cards.
I knit too, but I an not a fast knitter so it takes ages to get projects finished, but I've always got one or two things on the go at once. I've been knitting  socks (now there's a surprise), and I've had them ripped out so many times that I've given up with the pattern. Nothing difficult that I can see, so I've decided that there must be a mistake in the pattern, I'm disappointed as it was a lovely colour work design. But I'm sure I will manage to make  good use of the yarn with something else.

Now on to my card;
Well I'm sure the fans amongst you will recognise the image as Penny Black, I don't have many but I do love them. Not too sure what I've coloured it with, it kinda looks like pencils.

Do join us and share your Oldies.

Well here we are once again at a sporting tournament, the Olympic games, taking place in a country with the most amazing poverty, oh well that's the way the world is now.  The Romans started all of this in ancient times that when things were not going well and the citizens were less than happy with their Caesars, give them games to take their minds of the awful conditions, taxes, wars, whatever......
is any of this ringing bells??  I'll get of my soap box now.  Of course not helped by my hating sport.

I'm off now to see what I can forage for lunch, the only person (?) who has much in the way of eats is Teallach, I always make sure he has plenty in his cupboard.

Enjoy your day and see you soon,

Hi Kate, my headache has eased after my massage thankfully.
Thanks for joining me sharing an oldie today, a lovely penny black image and great colour combo.
Shame about your sock pattern as you make beautiful stripy socks.

Enjoy your weekend, hugs Erika. X

Yes Kate I think we all have changed styles over the pass few years, yet this card is still as perfect for the occasion. Sorry your knitting has caused a few problems, your right it could just be a very small miss print that can make the pattern go wrong.
Will get together with Patricia and arrange that meet up! Hazel xxx

Hi Kate
Ah, but think of the slums that were knocked down to make way for the posh new stadiums lol! I must admit, there are some sports I do like watching.
Gorgeous cheery card with a lovely image.
Best wishes.

Oh I'm the same with knitting Kate, I'm sooo slow it takes an age to do even a scarf so I prefer sewing.
Gotta love your card, always fun to see the old Penny Black stamps - my first love!!
