"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, how are you all to today???   Gosh it`s the weekend again, hope you have some nice things planned.  
Nothing much here apart from the boys popping along.  We see more of Thomas these days.   Robert is always away playing Football, Thomas goes to watch sometimes but he prefers coming here.  He says its all fine on a nice day but if its cold, raining or windy he is better here with us ... sensible lad.  Thomas plays Football Tuesday & Thursday evenings but Robert seems to Play or be Training almost every night of the week.  I really don`t know how John & Audrey manage to fit it all in.  I suppose looking back I did a fair bit of running their father here there and everywhere but I only had one to fit things round.
Anyway its ages since I joined Erika over at:- to share an Oldie for Friday.  Its a chance to show off some of your older projects.  It does not have to be Cards, anything you have created is what we want to see.
Here is mine for today:-

I am not a Stamper but every now and again I decide I have to have a go.
The background is done using Distress Inks.
Stamp is a Clarity Stamp
Don`t know about the Happy Birthday one.
Just a little bit ribbon to finish off

That`s it for today, have a fantastic weekend
Thank you for your visit I love that you take time to call by
Till next time

  10. Hi Patricia,
    what a fab Oldie today I don't remember this delightful card.
    You say your not a stamper but this is perfectly done.
    That background is amazing so wonderfully created too.
    Love this one soooooooo! much, and I wish I was that good.
    I know what you mean about standing about watching football on the side lines if it's cold and miserable.
    Very clever lad not wanting to get that cold as it seeps right to the bones just standing and watching.
    My Son is constantly taking my Grandson to football practice, and he also has coaching by a professional coach too.
    Have a super weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  22. Hi Patricia and thank you for joining me in sharing an oldie today. I remember this one. I love the atmospheric background you've created with your inks, it really makes the black stamped images pop.
    It sounds as if you have a busy weekend planned with the boys. My eldest used to be busy every night when younger but the little one isn't so keen.

    Enjoy your weekend, hugs Erika. x
