Getting Ready for the Weekend!

Good Afternoon All, finally getting around to blogging, we have been busy this morning getting the house ready for friends Dale and Stewart who are arriving this evening for a few days.  We are so looking forward to their visit, and anticipate a laugh a minute with them; i've just looked out the window and it's snowing!!, hope their train gets up OK. Alistairs' just gone out for a walk to blow the cobwebs away too, he'll come back like a snowman.

Anyway I've known these friends for ever, and unfortunately don't get together very often so it's great they are coming, last time here was for Alistair's 60th and that was 7 years ago.  We've lots of things planned but main one is SNJO concert at Eden Court theatre on Sunday, both boys are great jazz fans. 
I wont get crafting while their here but it's a good opportunity to get on with the knitting. Anyway here is the card I put together for Peter and Jean
I thought they would like the dogs.  I've used the free papers from Making Cards mag and the rest is from my stash.  I can't claim to have really designed the layout, I copied the example in the mag, well I couldn't have done any better.

To all who are going to the craft exhibition in Glasgow this weekend, have a great time and come home with loads of goodies.  I had planned to go, but visitors are here, always next year.

Have a great weekend,  Kate x

Good Morning Kate,
Love your card, Fantastic use of those papers
My favourite dogs, we don`t have any but the boys have a dog each both Border Collies.
I was looking after them for a few hours in their house last night. They like to sleep together in the spare double bed downstairs when Mummy & Daddy are not there. I went in to see two wee boys, two dogs all sound asleep in the one bed. I would not have them on the bed but it is not my house. It was sweet to see though.
Hope your friends enjoy the snow.
Have a Great Day,

Patricia xx
