It's that time of the week again, dig out an oldie!

Good morning and how are you this Friday?
It has the beginnings of another beautiful day, a bit cloudy, but hopefully that will clear later.
I have a short shift at work today so I need to get moving and get everyone organised and away to school so I too can get ready.

You know the drill by now, each Friday I encourage you to join me, for fun, sharing a previously posted project on your blog or a project you made a long time ago and haven't blogged.  I will add a link below for you to join me and visit all who do.  It only remains for me to thank those of you who regularly play along, I do appreciate it and enjoy my visit to your place to see your chosen project.
Without further ado here is my project for this week.

For this card I have used:
Paper:  Tim Holtz Kraft resist 12" pad, American craft black textured card stock.
Stamps:  Andy Skinner Flight of Fancy and Word Up.
Inks:  Ranger distress inks Crushed olive, Vintage photo and Black Soot.
Spellbinder nestabilities:  Labels 14.
Embellishments:  Tim Holtz Tissue tape, Game spinner and Sprocket gears. 
Wool from stash.

This is not my usual style but I did enjoy getting all inky.  The beauty of this shaped card is that it is also 3D but folds flat in a C6 envelope, dependant on what embellishments you use of course.

That's all from me today, better go and get ready for work, then I have a job lot of ironing to do, weather depending.  I would say I should iron outside but I have tried that in the past, dead bugs R US on all the clothes.  I guess that's the joys of living in Scotland.  We don't suffer too bad with midges here but do occasionally get a bout of them, just no where near as bad as the west coast.

Enjoy your weekend folks and thanks for popping by.

Hi Erika, fabulously designed card, I don't remember this one, but love it and all the detail.
Well I beat you this morning, you hadn't posted when I posted my Oldie, I was up with the lark, feeling tired now though.
Have a good weekend, Kate x
