Sharing an oldie this Friday.....SN style.

Good morning and how are you this Friday morning?
A missed post from me yesterday but I really didn't have anything to share.
I did start my new job on Wednesday and have been let loose on the customers, spending most of my time at the tills.  I wouldn't have thought it as tiring as working in the back warehouse but it is a different kind of tired, being nice to customers for my whole shift can get tiring.  LOL.  Just call me "Carol Smilie!"

On to today's oldie and this truly is an oldie.  I have gone so far back on my blog that I didn't list the products used.  I can't remember the name of the papers but then they're probably no longer available.  I would however be interested to hear if any of you have or have had these products in you mighty fine crafty stash.

The image is one of the early ones from Sugar Nellie and is called Summer Maggie.  I have used paper piecing on Maggie's dress and coloured with my prisma pencils.

I encourage you to join me sharing an oldie this Friday, it can be any project you have previously posted or anything you haven't ever posted.  I will visit all who join in and thank you for taking time to play along, I do appreciate it and enjoy seeing your chosen project.

I have a day off today before in again tomorrow for a short morning shift on the shop floor.  Lots of housework to crack on with as hubby is back this evening after finishing a three week course for work.  Mind you as I have a day of peace will I be good and go food shopping and complete the housework or will I be naughty and head to my craft room to play?
That is the $50 question!

Enjoy your weekend folks and thank you for popping by.  The link to join me is just below. 

I look forwards to hopping over to your blog. 
Take care.

Hi Erika, lovely card, don't remember seeing this one before. She is a real sweetie and beautifully paper pieced. The papers remind me of a range for one of these Papermania Teddy Bears, got it Forever Friends, but not sure.
Get thee to thy Craft Room!!!
Have a good day tomorrow and I'm sure you don't look like Carole Smilie, Kate x

A very pretty 'oldie' Erika. She's such a sweet image in her paper pieced dress.

Glad to hear the job worked out ok. I had to laugh at your Carol Smilie comment. Have a lovely weekend. I'm off to a workshop tomorrow. Barbxx

A very pretty card and colour combo Erika. Hope you find some time to craft in between the boring house work :)

I don't know about the papers, but that's a very cute card! Totally understand about the fixed smile, it's really hard work looking alert and happy all the time. I'm glad when I'm alone in my car when I can grump and switch off! Will be thinking of your early start tomorrow, from my nice warm bed obviously. Have a great weekend. Cara x
