It's sharing an oldie time again, crafty style of course!

Oh my, what a result for Scotland.  That is going to make for interesting times!
I can always remember my father saying to me, never talk about religion, money or politics.
It will always start an argument so I shall only say, let's hope History doesn't repeat itself.

Back to today and the happy world of crafting.  Sharing an oldie is my way of having a little crafty fun and I would love it if you'd join me too.  It can be any old project as long as it was handmade by you.
It's all about sharing the love of crafting.
If you are joining me don't forget to leave a wee comment then I can pop along to your spot and return the joy.
Feeling optimistic today so thought I'd share this card, this is from a class I ran a couple of years ago.
It was an introduction to inking.

The products used are;  Distress inks Peeled paint and Broken china.  Stamps all by Marion...It's all in the words.  Spellbinder dies; Eyelet squares and Classic squares.  Bling by Zva creative and Memento black ink.  
It was all about learning to use a blending tool!
As for the sentiment "May all your dreams come true!" maybe a little to much optimism on my part today!

What are your plans for this weekend?
I'm working early tomorrow which will come as a shock to the system as I don't feel I have been there for ages, which is actually true.
On Sunday I have my local crop meeting, planning some happy crafting time for that.
Today, however, I am away shortly to do a beach clean with my work colleagues, then later the usually housework and I am definitely going to craft at some point, if only to get organised for Sunday.
Have a super weekend guys.  x

Hello Erika, another week has come round and it's Friday again, can't believe it. Love your 'oldie' for today, the very subtle distress inking contrasted by the black frame is so striking and a gorgeous set of stamps too. Hope you achieve all you wish to today, it's sounds crammed full of things.

Hi Erika,
was a bit late with my Oldie today,
because of Internet probs.
Great Oldie for you today, and I love that fab inking, and the wonderful die cut frame.
Oh you poor back when you finish the beach clean.
Have a wonderful weekend,even though you have to work on Saturday.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Beautiful card as usual. Hope the beach clean up went well. I really miss living close to the sea, well apart from the seagulls! Hope you have a good weekend x
