Friday Oldie, Happy Anniversary.....Er...No Birthday!

Hello Everyone, how are you all today?  Well I hope, but sending out kind thoughts to those who're not.
Thank you all for your kind comments on my last card, I love reading them and appreciate each one.

Alistair is up and about today and feeling better, not completely but much more than before.

I went back to work today and was working late and I am surprised at how tired I am, I could just close my eyes and drop off to sleep, so I am keeping this post short.

It's a scheduled post for Friday Oldie, started by Erika at Snappy Craft as a bit of fun, and now there are quite a few of us have joined her. You can show anything you have made at an earlier time in your crafting career. Doesn't have to be a card, I sometimes show a knitting project, just whatever you like.
Here is my offering;
Made in my first year of crafting around 4 years ago and I can't remember where I got the image, but the flourishes are Marianne.
I have a wee story about this card.  Alistair have me a birthday card a few years ago, this card was what I found. He had forgotten to get me one and knowing how much store I set on cards, he thought that he would raid my box for one, but Alistair being Alistair didn't read the sentiment only looked at the image and thought I would like the dancers. Anyway, it's the thought that counts, I can only think I was lucky to get this one as he could have chosen a sympathy card, cos he thought I would like the flower on it. Bless him! What can you do with them......husbands!

Please join us, it's fun. Cheerio for now,

Good morning Kate,
Thank you for starting my day with a wee chuckle.
Typical just typical I have a hubby exactly the same!!!
Tell you what, he "liked it" that's the main thing. Tells you something you make nice cards he was spoilt for choice and chose his favourite.
It is a fantastic card love the image and your great design.
Have a good day

Morning Kate, men eh?! Definitely wired differently to us girls.
Good to hear he is feeling a bit better.
Great card, your dancers really pop out of the card with the black against the paler shades. You made me smile with your comment about the sympathy card.

Thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie this Friday, have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

It's a fabulous card Kate, I'm not surprised Alistair chose it for the image - like you say it's the thought that counts. I'm pleased to hear that he is on the mend.
Have a lovely weekend.

Carol said...

Lovely card and your story made me laugh Kate. It reminds me of the time I re-gave hubby an anniversary card the year we sold the business as I'd been too busy to make a new one. On the day I was in a meeting and hubby popped his head through the door and mentioned our anniversary and the wrong number of years, of course I corrected him and thought no more about it until I got home and realised the card had the "wrong" years written inside! Oops that'll teach me! Carol x

Hazel said...

Oh Kate I had to laugh, men just don't stop and think do they? He liked it and knew you would to seeing how you made it.
It is a lovely image and design.

Hi Kate
Oh that did make me laugh but technically it was the anniversary of you being born (Alastair, you can have that one for free lol!)
Glad he is feeling better so that he can spoil you today (breakfast in bed , rose between his teeth, Indian meal for tea etc, etc lol!)
Have a great weekend.
