Rainy Days Friday Oldie!

Good Morning to You, and I hope the day is shaping up well for you. 
Dull and a bit smirry rain here so I'm not going far, in fact I'm not going anywhere, it's a nice quiet day for me and Teallach as Alistair is away for the day in the mountains.

This is my share for Erika of Snappy Crafts Friday Oldie, and you can find her here.

Just for fun and interest a few of us gals are sharing something handmade from an earlier crafting time and it's good to see how  we have changed our style, improved, taken up other sorts of crafts, whatever.

This is my contribution today, a lovely image from Crafters Companion Paint shop Poppets. It's such a charming image and I always think little ones in raincoats and wellies are always so cute, I remember well Damian having a little red pair of wellies that he wouldn't take off rain or shine, and he was a puddle jumper with the greatest of glee, Ah well, another age....another century.

We had a lovely visit with our friends yesterday, and Peter is so upbeat about starting his treatment, although he knows it will knock the stuffing out of him, being so positive can only be a good thing.
It was the most gorgeous of days, and they live in a beautiful area, surrounded by hills and wild life, and it was even warm enough to sit outside for lunch, where the red squirls and all sorts of birds joined us.  A perfect day! 

Heading into another weekend, so I hope you have a good one whatever you have planned, so till next time, take care and see you soon,

Hi Kate, good to hear your friend remains positive, I'm sure that will help.
A super oldie today I had wellies like that when little and apparently wouldn't take them off!
Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. X

Yes Mr Linkie worked too. 😁

Such a cute image made into a lovely card, thanks for sharing it. I was so sorry to read about your friend's diagnosis, it must have come as such a shock to you all. I will keep him in my thoughts. Have a good weekend, Cara x

Your card brought back happy memories from my own childhood as well as those of my sons, we all had a great time splashing in the puddles dressed in waterproof coats and wellies, it's a beautiful dateless card Kate.

Hi Kate,
what a gorgeous card for your Oldie choice today.
They sure look so cute.
Love your fab design and colour choice too.
I treated myself to some Paint poppets when they were on offer recently, and have only used them once so far.

So glad your friend is being so positive about his treatment, that can be a great healer.
I do hope all goes okay, and he is soon on the mend.

Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy your day to yourself.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Such a cute card - I love little children with their umbrellas and boots. More than that, I love it that you call them wellies. Why is it that little kids like to wear rubber boots and do not want to take them off!
Glad your friend has such a positive attitude - I wish him well.

Cara said...

Hi Kate, yes I have followed your site. I enjoyed having a mooch about looking at your lovely creations and have now bookmarked the chocolate baroque site! Thanks for the heads up, Google seems to be having a strop with my profile picture. Hopefully I've fixed it! Cara x
