A Robin for Friday Oldie!

Hello from a dim and dismal Inverness, I hope it's a bit brighter where you are.  We had sleet this morning and I wouldn't be surprised if there was snow in the hills.

Anyway, I'm here a bit later than I'd planned with my Friday Oldie,
A very traditional Christmas card, I think it might be a Docraft's topper, but can't remember.

Why not play along with the few of us who share one of our older projects, it doesn't have to be a card, just Handmade.  Friday Oldie was started by Erika from SnappyCrafts and you can find her here as a bit of fun to show how our crafting has changed/developed over time, as I say it's just for fun.

Now just before I finish up here, I'd love you to check out my friend Amanda's new blog, those of you who regularly follow me will know she is my friend Dale's lovely daughter and she has recently started to make the most wonderful frames, some of which I've shown on here.  I suggested she should show here beautiful creations on a blog and she has now managed to start one up, here it is
She is very artistic and I would love if you have time to pop into see her and maybe give the Follow Button a click, he only has me at the moment.

Thank you all so much for all your lovely comments on my last card, very much appreciated that you all take the time to visit.

You all take care of yourselves and I'll be back......soon,

Hi from a very wind and rain torn side of the country. Don't you just feel like hibernating when it's as bad as this. Love the photo of your kitty sitting in front of the coal fire - hope that's where you are too :) Anything with robins on it is perfect for me so love your card. Elizabeth xx

Your oldie is lovely Kate. I love Robins on Christmas cards and sparkle is almost compulsory! Your cat looks nice and snug in front of that beautiful open fire. Barbxx

Erika said...

Hi Kate, it wasn't too bad earlier here but I think it has gotten worse as the night has gone on. I am not going out to check, but it is certainly a lot colder than normal.
I love your traditional Christmas especially the added sparkle.

Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

Hi Kate
I did shiver when I saw your forecast this morning.
However, your bonny little robin doesn't seem bothered by his white surroundings on this gorgeous card.
Have visited Amanda, then nearly forgot to come back and comment here lol!
Have a great weekend.

Hi Cathy (Kate hehe),
I've had some lovely new visitors to my blog thanks to your very kind comments. It is so wonderful to have some visitors and they have left some very kind comments. I am loving blog land (although it is threatening to become quite the obsession!) and am going so spend some time today visiting the blogs of some of your blogging friends.
See you in December.
Hugs and kisses,
Amanda xx
