It's Friday so lets share an oldie.

Where has the week gone?
No posts from me.
Well, I have been working and catching up with all the normal day to day bits and bobs.
The time just seems to fly.  We've also had a few broken nights, poorly child and a dog that likes getting up to go out for her business.
At this time of year I do find it hard to muscle up the enthusiasm by early evening, dark cold nights, tiredness, a warm fire.  I'm afraid I have found collapsing in front of the fire with a wee glass of something too much of a draw.

Anyway enough of my waffle back to today's post and it's that time of week.  Time for us to share a crafty oldie, it is just for fun and it can be any of your old crafty projects that you'd like to share.
Add a comment below, that way I can find your blog too and see what you have decided to share.
Back to my oldie and today I have a wee card for you with a tartan theme as it is the New Year.

For this card I have used Papermania Christmas in the country together with Spellbinder dies Jewel Flowers and flourishes and Vintage labels two.  The sentiment is from JustRite Live, love, laugh vintage labels two.

To make this card you need to cut a 8½ x 4¼” piece of card stock and score it at 5½”. 
Cut two pieces of patterned paper in 5¼ x 4″ and 2¾ x 4″ and add to above card.
Take an 8 x 3″ piece of card stock and score at 4″. 
I cut a piece of 3¾ x 2¾” patterned paper and add to above card.  Attach two cards together.

I'm back in work today and tomorrow and then getting together with my crafty friends on Sunday for our monthly gathering.  According to the weather forecast there is a nasty storm heading our way over the next couple of days so fingers crossed it isn't as bad as it sounds.  
It only remains for me to wish you all the very best for the coming weekend, stay safe and warm.  I look forwards to hearing from you and shall be visit you at some point too, sharing the love of crafting.
Catch you soon.  x

Erika, I do love the design of this card, and of coarse tartan always looks great, not good that you have a poorly child, back to school and all the bugs again. Doesn't work get in the way of crafting? I have put up an oldie today. Hazel x
