Arr Me Hearties!!

Hello To you All this very cold and foggy Saturday, at least it has been up here in Inverness.  I think it has lifted a bit now but it was quite pea soup when I was out this morning. I hope it has been better wherever you are.

Thank you for all the great comments on my last card, It's great to think you take the time to visit and comment, everyone is so busy these days.

Well, I took my self out on my own today even although it was foggy and managed fine, so I guess I'm back in the harness so to speak.  Talking about harnesses, I remember a few years ago when I went riding and came off the horse and was incredibly winded, I knew I had to get right back on again, which I did, then drove home, all the way from Muir of Ord on the Black Isle to Inverness in 2nd. gear as the pain was eye watering when changing gear.  I had in fact busted two ribs. That was awful, thankfully, no injuries with this accident.

So we are off star gazing later tonight, I think I'm going to lace my mug of coffee with a little brandy, that should keep me warm along with the thermal long johns.

My card today is one using a LOTV stamp;

I love this little image and have used it quite a few times, but the difference this time is that I've used a new Memory Box die, Big Splash Border which I've put over white paper in the hope of giving the impression of "white horses", it's coloured with water colours and matteed on to silver mirri.  Black glitter card and blue co-ordinations for layering.  Sentiment is LOTV and pirate charms from Papermania.

I've now just to find a little one to give it too.

Well I'm working tomorrow, but I hope you all enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

Good morning Kate. Hope you didn't get to cold while stargazing? Well done for getting back behind the wheel and driving. I hated it when I had my op and wasn't allowed to drive for over 8 weeks. It was different for you as you had had that bump and wasn't sure you would be able to get back behind the wheel but you have done it. Your card is fabulous and so cute I just love it. Hazel
