It's Friday, time to share another oldie for fun.

Good morning and how are you this Friday?
It's that time again, sharing an old crafty project for the fun of it.  I'd love it if you'd join me resurrecting an old project on your blog just for the joy of crafting.  All I ask is that you leave a wee comment below, that way I know you've joined the fun but more importantly it means I can pop along to your blog and check out your oldie to.  I will comment on all.

After yesterday's chilly post I thought I'd bring us right back to the summer months with a sea theme.

Today I have used Sugar Nellie image "Ocean's gift!" together with papers from DCWV The Linen Closet.  The sentiment stamp is by Stampendous and the image is coloured with Prisma pencils and Distress ink Vintage photo.  Wire, lace, pearls, ribbon and button are from my stash.  

Mmm my favourite colour combo, Kraft, cream and shades of teal.  In my eyes it can't be beaten, but then it would be very boring if we were all the same.

Plans for the rest of today really depend on the weather, the housework still awaits my approval as does the ironing, decisions, decisions!
I did actually have this weekend off work but have been asked just to do a short shift in the morning tomorrow.  It is holiday season after all!  
I believe the market is also on in Elgin so no doubt the town will be busy.

Do you have anything exciting planned this weekend?
I hope you enjoy whatever you get up to!  
I shall be back tomorrow to tickle that creative funny bone.

She is gorgeous and I absolutely love the way you have designed this card with all the coordinating embellishments. This colour scheme works perfectly for a seaside/sea-life feel and your swirly wire and pearl decoration is inspired. I haven't tried colouring on kraft card but your image is wonderfully vibrant against the background, love it.
