Presents, Friday oldie!

Hello there, how are you all today?  Well I hope and enjoying this lovely weather. Not for long though, we are to have rain later, and indeed it's been trying since around 3pm. I was hoping that it didn't start until Alistair got the gutters cleaned and the outside of the windows washed, which he did. I've got to catch him when he's on a roll as house maintenance is not his forte. Anyway, two jobs well done, and the sparkling windows now just waiting for Teallach's nose to mess them up again, you wonder why you bother really, but there you go.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments yesterday.
I'm back to join in with Erika of Snappy Crafts, you can find her here , because it's time for Friday Oldie....yes that's a week gone already.  This is just a little fun posting to show handmade projects made at an earlier time, it's good to look back and see how your style has changed, or maybe you now make something entirely different. There are quite a few of us join Erika now, so why not join us, here is mine;
A card I was asked to make for a work colleague a few years back. All from a Joanna Sheen CD, Nostalgia, there are some lovely images for all occasions, but a whole CD devoted to Christmas.
Labrador pups, just so cute.

Apart from holding ladders steady, I've been in my craftroom, I've got yet another 60th card to make once again for a man, so I had to put my thinking cap on as I don't really know this chap well, but we will be with him on his birthday, so thought I would do a card.  I've been working with CB stamps, Starlight paints and now waiting for Sparkle Medium to dry, that's the bit I don't like, want to get it on and done.

Whilst, I was holding the ladders for Alistair, our neighbour came out and I was laughingly saying to him, that I didn't know what I would do if the ladders slipped, save the man or the artificial hip.....
Donnie answered immediately, save the hip, you can always get another man!!! Poor Alistair, said he wasn't amused.

Well that's all from me today. We are heading into the weekend, so I hope you have some nice plans, see you all soon,

Such a cute card Kate. Lovely. You were lucky the rain stayed off. When I woke up this morning it was pelting down and has rained nonstop all day. Only starting to clear away now at 5.30.

The rain has already reached us Kate such a shock after all those lovely days. That's such an adorable image on your pretty card but with Labs I am a bit biased.

Erika said...

Kate you have kept your man busy, maybe there is something in the air as mine has been busy too today doing his chores!
Thanks for joining me today sharing an oldie. Those labs are very cute and such a super personalised Christmas card.
Good luck with your 60th, when in doubt I always jazz up large numbers with fancy paper and embellishments.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, hugs Erika. x

Hi Kate,
what a brilliant Oldie, and the image is so sweet.
A very lovely design also.
Can't wait to see the 60th you are woring on.
I can see why your hubby didn't find that funny.
I think mine wouldn't have either.
Have a very lovely weekend.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A really sweet Christmas card Kate. Those little Labradors are just adorable!! It has rained all day here with the odd break but not for long! Better weather is on the way for the middle of next week I understand. Have a good week Kate and thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment, much appreciated.
Hugs Jennifer xx.

Awww just love your adorable Christmas card Kate, those dogs are so cute. Hugs Anet x I had to read your story about holding the ladder to my husband. Gave us a good laugh, but I can understand that Alistair did not find it so amused :).
