Time to share an oldie, sewing bee style!

Good morning, how are you this Friday?
It's the end of the week again so time to dig out your oldies.  You know the deal by now but for those who are new today I encourage you to join me sharing an old crafty project you have previously blogged or haven't blogged at all.  It is all for the joy of crafting and it is fun to see everyone's creative journey.
Before I start I would like to say a big THANK YOU to those of you who take the time to join me, I really do appreciate and enjoy visiting your blogs to see what project you have chosen too.

Today I have the Sewing bee in my head, are you watching it too?   I know a couple of you are.  I really enjoyed 60's week and would love one of those dresses with the block colours.  With sewing in mind I have stuck to card making but on this theme, you can choose any craft project you would like to, all I ask is that you made it yourself.

For this card I have used:
Stamps:  PI Vintage Sewing and "Stitch" from Andy Skinner  A stitch in time.
Paper:  TH Idea-ology Kraft resist pad.
Ink:  Distress ink Black Soot and Rusty Hinge.
Embellishments:  Idea-ology Ornate plates and brads, Pearls by Zva Creative,
Seam binding, thread and lace from stash.

That's all from me today, my task now is to tidy my craft room.  I am back to work tomorrow, that will be a bit of a shock to the system after a week off.  I bet I'll be tired come home time.
Then on Sunday whilst my boys have a bonding day out with Dad I plan on having a few crafting buddies around for tea, cake and I dare say a few giggles and a wee bit of crafting.
Enjoy your weekend. 

Don't forget to link up with me here if you are joining sharing an oldie this Friday.  I look forwards to popping by.

Hi Erika, Friday already, eeek!! Anyway your card today is beautiful, lovely vintage feel to it, I've gone with a knitting theme this ime.

Wasn't that video of the footy fan hilarious, I've watched so many times and still laugh my head off. Alistair is watching just about every game just now as the weather is so bad he can't get off to the mountains. Have a good weekend and take it easy tomorrow when your back at work, Kate x

Hi Erika,
not managed to post for a few weeks.
So I thought I would join in this week.
Brilliant card, and love the very fab sewing theme, and it's a very fab design as always.
Things are bit hectic for me at the mo, but then you will know what I mean as your work and have a family to look after.
Sadly my age slows me down such a lot.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A lovely sewing themed card for today's oldie, a gorgeous vintage style. Sorry I haven't joined in for a while but I need to delve in to that memory card on my old camera to find some more older photo's since my computer lost them all a while back. Hope the weather perks up for you and good luck going back to work tomorrow.

Lovely oldie Erika. I love that vintage theme, something I'm never pleased with when I have a go. One of your funnies today (Saturday) is really apt for me too.
