Going back in time for the oldie this Friday.....a little black and white number!

Good morning all, how are you this Friday morning?
It's that time again when I encourage you to share an old crafty project with me, just for the fun of it.
All I ask is if you are joining me and want to share your oldie too, leave a wee comment below and I will visit you all over the next couple of days.  It can be any old crafty project as long as you have made it yourself.

Today I have a little black and white number for you.

I have used digital image Annabel from Sugar Nellie stamps coloured with grey prisma pencils.  The Spellbinder dies are Classic circles and Labels Twenty four (I've used two frames and linked them together), together with A4 embossing folder dots (difficult to see in the photo).  The sentiment and die "For you" are by SU with ribbon and pearls from my stash.

All the colours in the world and I've done black and white, but I like a black and white card. It's fun to practise your colouring just by using light and dark shades of the same colour.

Have you got plans this weekend?
I actually have!
I'm not working tomorrow but am heading over to the Papeterie in Aberdeen to do a class with the lovely Hels Sheridan.  I have met Hel's before down at the trade fairs in Birmingham, her samples are amazing.  Can't wait to see what we will be making in her class, I think we shall be getting all inky, can't wait.
I shall also be another year older on Sunday.  I was hoping to have the whole weekend through in Aberdeen but the boys didn't want me to.  
They think that I should be going Quad biking you think that's what they might like to do?!  LOL.  
Looking at the forecast for Sunday I think a nice relaxing day at home crafting might be the order of the day.  I did say to them, Mum would rather have a massage or her nails done but they didn't like the sound of that.  Boring!  I must point out that I NEVER get my nails done and on the odd occasion I do, they don't last.  Guess I'm not a girlie girl!
I shall have to wait and see what they have planned for me, one thing for sure it won't be "girlie!"
Have a super weekend.  x

Happy Birthday for Sunday I don't post on a Friday but can I join in on a Thursday or a Saturday - the days I post on my blog I love the card I don't colour and love your suggestion of trying different shades of one colour

Erika, this is brilliant, the design and the image. Happy birthday for Sunday, just say to the boys that quad biking is ok but if you do that they have to have their nails painted on their birthday, see what they make of that?? Explain that you want your nails done but they want you to quad bike so you choose their birthday outings. What every you do enjoy. Hazel x P.S. Enjoy aberdeen.
