Thinking of You for Friday Oldie!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all hale and hearty (is that the correct hale, or should it be hail??) to think I used to get A's in English, ah well the old brain is going. Nevertheless I hope everyone is well.

Thought I would get this post ready for scheduling for Friday Oldie tomorrow as I feel I would like a computer free day. I seem to have been on the damn thing for most of the afternoon, sometimes you just get caught up going from one thing to another and time just disappears.
Talking about time thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my previous card. I'm really getting to love stencils, and have ordered a few more from Chocolate Baroque.

Anyway, here is my Oldie share;
Now this is a bit grey, a bit like this afternoon. It is of course a Kanban stamp, one of my favourites especially for a man, the paper I'm sure is from a Papermaina paper pad, I can't remember who it was made for, or when without trawling through my blog, but I hope they liked it.

Why not play along and share your earlier projects whatever they are, we would love to see them.
Oldie on Friday all began as a bit of crafty blog fun by Erika of Snappy Crafts and you can find her fabby blog here,  

The rain is coming down in sheets and poor Teallach is sitting at the window looking longingly out, but obviously not as yet venturing outdoors, I'm just annoyed about the washing that's out, have to leave it now.

Have a smashing Friday whatever you are planning and see you soon,

Great card Kate. I have this stamp set too - and bought for the same reasons. I haven't used it for quite some time now so maybe I'll dig it out again. Hope you enjoy your "offline day". Hugs Christine xx

Hi Kate, enjoy your offline rest, these computers do tend to suck up the time once you sit in front of them. I too have this stamp and it is perfect for those male cards, a lovely 'oldie' today.

Wonderful card and it looks just like the weather here. It has been raining all but non stop for several days now. And when it rains here on the island it pours! Lots of grey days but I really don't mind them. I think I would do really well living in Scotland.
The background paper you used for this card is delightful. And the scene certainly does remind me of our island paradise.

Hi Kate, sorry I got distracted at the weekend with all the fit men in shorts! Cough, cough!
I hope you had a super weekend, the weather was beautiful here.

I love your card, the scene is lovely, just perfect for a Thinking of you card, with a soft colour palette too.
Thanks for joining me sharing an oldie this weekend,

It's a beautiful scene of the lighthouse and the sea, and perfect manly stamp. Love the neutral colors too. Very nice indeed, Kate.

Hi Kate
Love the stamp you have used and the paper is lovely too. A great card for the chaps.
Poor T Boy stuck indoors but best place for him on a wet day.
Know what you mean about the computer. I can spend an hour on the tablet or my phone and not realise it.
Take care.
