Sharing an oldie this Friday.....Christmas style!

Good morning and how are you all today?
Whoops another missed post yesterday, Thursday's seem to be turning into my busiest day just now.
I had both boys to the dentist first thing for fillings, the youngest first one, so that was a little traumatic for him.  Mind you it doesn't help, and it is purely a coincidence, that we are reading The Demon Dentist at bedtime just now.  Even more scary we are just at the part where the little boy gets strapped to the dentist chair.  To say he was a little reluctant to go is an accurate statement.
After the dentist and whizzing them back to school I had my Christmas appointment at the hairdressers, the grey has again been tamed!
Then it was time to pick the boys up again for a trip to the opticians, new glasses required for my youngest.
We were fairly pooped after that and a little shopping so ended up at Scribbles, our local pizza restaurant for tea.
Once I got home the dog greeted me with such joy and we both had a lovely very dark walk together!
I'm sure that is a regular day for most of you but it was a busy one for me, I did enjoy then sitting down with a cup of tea and mince pie to watch I'm a Celebrity.

Back to the crafting and today I have an old SU CAS Christmas card for you.

Not my usual Christmas green but I'm loving SU's Old Olive ink and papers... oh and the tree stamp from the Seasons of Joy stamp range.  The ribbon I think I picked up in the states and the metal Christmas tree was in my stash.

What I find great about sharing these old cards is that I seem to have gone full circle, starting with simple cards and then getting more complicated, I have now gone back to a simpler style.  I guess time has a lot to do with it but I do personally prefer the less fuss approach.

Are you sharing an oldie with me today?  Don't forget to leave a message so I can pop to your blog and share the crafty love.  It is just for fun and the joy of crafting.
I'd like to say thank you to those who are joining me I do appreciate it, it only remains for me to sign off today and go and crack on.  I have dog walking, food shopping and then my Christmas decorations to make for tomorrows work Christmas party.  I think it is going to be another busy day!

Wow, sounds like your day was super busy.....don't know how us Mum's manage to fit it all in sometimes!! Love your card, that green is just beautiful.....I so wish I'd decorated my house in those lovely Christmas green/beige/brown frosty woodland tones.....maybe next year cos I'm sure it'll be here before we know it! Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Hi Erika,
beautiful Oldie for Friday.
Love that tree stamp and what you have created here.
That colour green is very nice.
Now there's me grumbling that there are not enough hours in the day to do everything I want, and you seem to be so busy and yet you get lots done.
It must be a case of me slowing done so much due to my age.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Erika, I just love your card, gorgeous shade of green and lovely tree image. The tartan ribbon is beautifu.
Sorry but I forgot it was Friday so I've not looked anything out.
You certainly always seem to be on the go, don't know how you manage to fit it all in.
Enjoy your Christmas party at work, hugs Kate x
