Adorable Susie

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends, I hope today is being good to you whatever your doing.
It's a bright crisp day here, cold but healthy.  Thank you for all the lovely comments on my Geisha card, I really appreciate them and I'm just delighted that you take the time out of your busy day to come and have a look and a read.

I drove up to Cullodon Battlefield this morning to find the Observatory,  Alistair with me of course, and am delighted to say I felt fine behind the wheel.  Not yet been in heavy traffic though, just taking it slowly. Anyway, we now know where we are going tomorrow night and it looks great.  There was a chap there setting up his telescope ready for tonight so Alistair got chatting about it all and was given an other bit of help.  We had a look around the observatory and it's really serious stuff.  As I said we will go tomorrow night for the last of the BBC Stargazing Live programme and Damian and Moreen are coming too, so it will be warm clothing, and maybe a flask with a wee nip in it to keep the cold out. I don't understand it all, lots of maths involved with calculations and things, but it will be really something to be able to see the planets.

The card I have today is one of the new Sugar Nellie Adorable digi stamps, I've fallen in love with them and bought three, so here is Susie see what you think;
Well it's another pants photo, I'm still on my phone, thought I'd managed to fix the camera problem, but now the computer isn't reading the memory card.

however, I've coloured her with Promarkers, and had to cut the image out free hand as I did'nt have a large enough rouns die, but I've managed not too badly. papers are First Edition Sweet Owl, my shades are pink and brown.  Adorable Scorable pink card, flowers from WO, ribbon,  hessian  and pearls from The Ribbon Girl, sentiment and gems from my box.

I would like to enter this card into The Sugar Bowl Challenge 99 "Anything Goes"

Well thats it for to day, I'm away to watch "All that Heaven Allows" and old movie with Jane Wyman and it's a weepie that I have never managed to see all the way through.  pure indulgence on a friday After noon.

Enjoy the rest of your day,  Kate x

Good evening Kate, Nothing wrong with your photo. Do you use your Macro setting for photos?? If not try that if you are not happy.
Your card is beautiful, that is a really pretty image.
Glad you have managed to drive your car, once you have another go you will be jetting about again no problem.
What a great adventure...............Stargazing!! I love to stand a watch the stars. Not that I know anything about them I just love to look. Have a great time wrap up warm.
