A little personal number.

Good afternoon all, how are you today?
Bright blue skies here in the sunny north but a tad colder in the air.  Boo, do you get that feeling that winter is on it's way?  The mornings are certainly getting darker, especially the early starts for work.

I have been a bit slow in getting going today, I don't know why.  You know when you have one of those days where you get up all guns firing ready to take on the world and then you sit down to breakfast and fizzle out very quickly?  That's been me today.
I need a rocket to get going, if you find one, think of me.  It might just get me moving a bit quicker!

Today's card is a personal request from a friend.  She gave me an old photograph to go on a card and wanted the recipient to be circled in some manner.

I tweaked the photo a wee bit and tried different ways to do the circle.  In the end I thought this little brass ring did the trick as it didn't block out anyone else in the picture.
She said the family hasn't seen this so is hoping they love it.

Before I forget I didn't mention the stamp in yesterday's post and have since been asked about it.  If you don't remember it was the label for my jam.  The stamp is by Unity Stamp company based in America and it is called Premium Authentic Quality.  I thought it would be a perfect addition to any presents that I had made myself when packaging them.

That's all from me today, oh I so should be doing my housework right now but I'm really not in the mood.  I think I'll go and put tea in the slow cooker and chill out, maybe craft instead, you won't tell anyone will you?
My excuse.....not that I need one, hubby has been on nights and is currently sleeping off, I couldn't possibly make lots of noise tidying could I?  LOL.

Catch you again tomorrow, can you believe it's Friday again already, I better go and hunt out an oldie.  I think come September I might start with some Christmas oldies, I seem to have plenty of them from my demonstrating days.  Enjoy the rest of your Thursday.

This is a fabulous card Erika using that old photo and the brass ring works perfectly to highlight the recipient, even though they are trying to hide from view it seems.
We have the same type of day here and I too feel as you do so perhaps it's the ions in the air affecting us? I should be beavering away for my stall tomorrow but I can't muster up any enthusiasm at all. Come tomorrow I shall regret it no doubt.
Should be joining in with you later tomorrow for an oldie share hopefully although my photo's are getting rather scarce now - how old is old? I have posted all my pre-blog pictures and so only have ones that are from 2014 onwards.

From Patricia, (finger troubles with new phone!)

Erika, that is absolutely brilliant.
Great idea using the brass ring. Does not block out anything.
Hope you have a better day tomorrow!!
