A crafty day today

Hello Folks hope your day has been good and thank you for all your comments. 
If you read yesterdays post I said I would find out the name of the film my husband watched being made in Skye, well it's called the 47 Ronin and having Googled further found out that Ronin means samuri without a clan as their fudel lord has been defeated making them mercenaries,  they you go some useless info.  Anyway here is the photo of the horse which was Warhorse, he's the darker of the two, but I think they are both beauties, I love horses.
My Little Claire October stamp arrived this morning, great excitement, so I made this one replicating one of the example cards
I'ts my first easle card, not too bad I think for a first attempt.  I'ts a lovely stamp and will have so many possibilities, it also comes with a couple of sentiments.
The other card I completed was Cho from LOTV
Isn't she gorgeous, the image I mean not necessarily my card, thought I hope you will like it.  There were 2 Geisha images I only bought one, now wishing I'd bought the other one.
Both images are coloured with promarkers, and whilst all the card and paper for the LC card came along with the stamp, the papers for Cho is from Nitwits bought from LOTV as is the sentiment,Flowers from Wild Orchid and Papermania, card is Adorable Scorable and doilies from Lakeland, seriously.

I've enjoyed making these cards as I really love both of the images, but I did manage to drag myself away from the craft table for a walk as the weather was so nice, the crisp cold air cleared the cobwebs away. All in all it's been a lovely day.

I'll need to think what to make next, I suppose it's more than likely back to the Christmas cards.
Bye for now, Kate x

Hi Kate, you are introducing me to new ideas, I am glad I found your Blog. The first card is just so lovely, I will have to have a closer look and the Grisham girl so delicate. LOTV is becoming very inviting to me.

Take care

Happy crafting and have a great weekend.
