For You "Friday Oldie"!

Hello to You All this fine wet, dull, cool morning, doesn't bode well for the weekend does it, nevertheless it's a day and I hope you  are tip top.  I only bother about the weather in terms of getting my washing out, is that sad or what???

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, comments always welcome, and appreciated too.

I'm here with my "Oldie for Friday" all started by our lovely Erika of Snappy Crafts and you can find her blog here. The idea is that you show something you've made at an earlier stage in your crafting career, doesn't have to be a card, it could be knitting, sewing, photographs, canvasses, just whatever you've handmade, so why not join in the fun, it's good to see too how your style has improved, changed, developed and all that kind of thing.  Here is mine for this week;
A PB Slapstick stamp, another of my favourite stamps and coloured with Promarkers, Papers are from Papermaina. 

Well, it's they type of day for staying in and doing a spot of crafting and that is just what I'm going to do, and also try to ignore any housework needing doing, mind you, I have just started reading my friend's new book and I'm only a few pages in and I'm hooked.  If you are looking for a good holiday read that puts a smile on your face and give food for thought, why not give it a try, in fact this is book is  the second in which will be a trilogy called Marilyn's Daughter, the first book is Cafe Paradise and the author is Patricia Comb.  I love the first book, it was such a feel good one and just know that Patricia's second book will be the same.

We are heading into the weekend, so I hope you have some good plans and that you enjoy them, so cheerio for now,

its a lovely oldie today Kate - that stamp is wonderful ....the book sounds good too - I just started a new one that I bought for my holidays - I'm on about chapter 5 - all good so far! I like books where nothing too drastic happens - Shaun used to call them boring books! He always liked horror and crime - I called them nasty books! We are all different eh? Hugs rachel xx
