Raining Daisies for Friday Oldie!

My goodness, I thought it was still morning, horrified to see it's past noon, all to pot today, but it is Friday and time again to join Erika of Snappy Crafts.. to be found here for Friday Oldie.

So Hello to Everyone, and how are you today, heading into another weekend, have you some nice plans made??, we are going to a concert in Inverness Cathedral tomorrow night, to listen to the Mahler Players performing Mahler's 9th Symphony, in miniature. They are excellent musicians lead by a very young Conductor, who I believe is still studying for his Music Masters.  Alistair loves Mahler, my musical likes are of an earlier period, but I do like some of Mahler's pieces. It will be a lovely night out.

So here we are again to share and Oldie, something handmade from an earlier time in our crafting career, doesn't have to be a card, sewing knitting, oh the list of crafting is endless.  They're are quite a few of us playing along now so why not join in, it's just for fun and it's good to see how your styles have changed, here is mine for this week,
This little creation was made from LC stamps, papers too and sentiment. If memory serves me right they were one of the monthly Club sets, which they no longer make.  I don't do many easel cards, not sure why as they are lovely and different. It's a pretty wee card I think.

Milo was in the bad books last night when Damian and Moreen got in from work, he had got into the pet's cupboard and managed to pull all his biscuit off the shelf and eat them, it was a box of shapes, then he got the large biscuit bones, demolished them, then started on the chews, didn't quite managed to finished them owing to the fact that he would have been too full. He didn't forget about the cats though as a box of cat treats were found almost empty, and Poppy and Bonnie looking  quite smug.

Damian let me know all this by a text message saying Milo's butt would be sore with either with a good slapping or of nature taking it's course. Anyway, this morning I texted back  to say that I hoped it wasn't me that left the door open, as I'm usually careful to close it, but was informed that the cat's have learnt to open the door could have been them and Milo in the right place at the right time. I just have this picture in my head of the pets all working together to get at their treas.  Damian's response was that when out for the morning walk, and nature taking it's course, and I quote"big enough to stick a flag on top".  I just another picture in my head then.   This dog is a real handful, and keep all of us on our toes.  

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last post, all appreciated.

Anyway, that's me for today, off to link up with Erika, and see about a bite of lunch, have a lovely day and take  care of yourselves,

What lovely papers and super cute little girl in the rain Kate. Milo certainly is a little character, I once had a dog that ate a box of chewy chocolate candy and when I got home the dog was on his back trying to push the caramels from his teeth.

A lovely oldie Kate and the flowery stopper looks so pretty.

My goodness it sounds as if Milo and the cats had a party yesterday. It reminded me of our first dog Amber who somehow managed to get hold of a box of indigestion tablets when she was a pup. What she passed looked like a mountain too! She obviously learned a lesson as years later we'd gone out and left a half eaten sandwich on the hearth. When we got home a couple of hours later there was poor Amber sitting guarding it. She was dribbling and shaking in anticipation. We felt so bad and of cause she was given the sandwich for being such a good girl. We felt really bad!!!!!

Enjoy your concert tomorrow evening. Barbxx

What a sweet easel card, the image of the gal in the rain is lovely.

OH NO, Milo and the kitties conspired to get to the treats. Lucky Milo didn't get a tummy ache. My sisters pug got into the large bag of dog food and ate so much he could not get back up the stairs, you could see the pellets of food in is bloated stomach. Had to pump his stomach.......large Vet bill!!!

Beautiful card Kate, love the image and beautiful papers. Oh my naughty Milo, oh my my kitties haven't worked out how to open the cupboard where there treats are! I think I might get some of the kiddie safe locks just in case.
Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Kate,
brilliant and wonderful Oldie today.
I love the image and the papers used.
oh you did make me laugh about those pets anitcs.
I had a Dalmatian once and he used to open my doors while I ewas at work, and go upstairs and get in my bed, and I hated that.
So I had to reverse all the hadles of the doors, but he still managed to open them.
So then I had to take all the door handles off, and keep them close by to use when I was at home.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Beautiful oldie Kate I agree that easel cards are special, poor naughty Milo, at least he wasn't sick.

Cats aren't so dumb eh? Sounds like a conspiracy, definitely.
Love your easel card Kate, very pretty, and I like you rarely make them, think they're too much bother or stuck in a rut not sure which.

Hi Kate
Very pretty and lovely oldie.
Oh my, what an image you conjoured up with the flag comment lol! I'm guessing that was Milo having the last laugh as it would be Damian having to bag it......ewwww!
My dear late Sam the cat used to love Thorntons special toffee but it was comical watching her trying to chew it and get it off her teeth lol!
Best wishes.
