Bah Humbug!

Good Evening Blogger Friends, I trust you are all well, keeping cosy in this really cold weather.  We had snow in Inverness yesterday and rain today so most of it is gone, thank goodness.  Plenty snow on our hills though which is good for the skiing and giving folk work.

Thank you all for the great  comments on my Charlie Chaplin card, I'm pleased you liked it.

Been having a bit of a rest over the last couple of nights from card making and trying to concentrate on the Aran cushion cover that is intended for Damian and Moreen as part of their Christmas gift, well I've taken it back three times and I'm only at the third row of cable, Alistair just keeps talking to me as I'm knitting and I get put off my count, it's not even all that a difficult pattern. Oh well maybe not this Christmas.

I have at last finished my Christmas cards, and this one is for Alistair, here it is;
He'll have a good laugh at this.  I found this wonderful image of Scrooge by Mo Manning and fell in love with it and thought perfect for hubby. He isn't a Scrooge at all, although he does make noises about the cost of Christmas. I just ignore him. He is however a great Dickens fan so I thought this was just the ticket for him.

It's a Digi stamp and coloured with Promarkers, Background papers are both Papermaina and First Edition Vintage Christmas.  Co-ordination card, gold glitter card, sentiment from PC and gems.

I am so pleased to be finished with Christmas cards and looking forward to trying out some new crafty things, not sure what though.  There is plenty of inspiration fro all your blogs so I'll be spoilt for choice.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my creations, I love to read all your comments.

Well, I'm working tomorrow so I think it's now off to bed with my book.

Good Night All

Good Evening Kate. What a fantastic card. I love Mo's images and last Christmas I used the Artful Dodger and Tiny Tim and it went down a treat. My son is called Alisdair and I wonder how many different spelling there is. I'm from Islay originally, and have been to Inverness Mod many years ago now. Hugs Rita xx

Hi Kate, I do enjoy seeing your lovely cards and believe Alistair will love this. I just dont know where all your ideas come from but it works for me. Oh Aran knitting how I miss it. I used to work nightshifts and had a few hours during the night with nothing to do and I used to knit Aran jumpers, Icelandic Jumpers, baby clothes just about anything. Then suddenly I went right off knitting and have only picked up the needles for a couple of baby cardis and I do miss it. Have to try again soon but will have to fit it in with cardmaking.
Enjoy your book.

Hello Kate,
I just love coming on here to see what you have created. Loving this, the colouring is fantastic.
I used to knit Aran`s for extra pocket money years ago. Hazel and I went to St Andrew`s to a woolen mill for our wool. We bought the Aran on huge "Cones" beautiful to knit with and no joins.
