Bafta Boy!!!

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends,  hoping you are all well and for those who are not too good just now hope it wont be long before you feel tip top again.

Firstly I want to welcome my new follower, Alison, lovely to have you here.

Thank goodness today is a much calmer day, the last two days had such high winds and some horrible rain.  I detest the wind, it always scares me and coupled with rain is just so awful.  Still our weather he is not as extreme as other places so have to be grateful for that.

No real news today, nothing exciting happening here just now, well I say that but actually I feel a sense of excitement and anticipation for my manager at work as her son has been nominated for a Bafta at the big one in London.  He has already won the Scottish Bafta for his work.  This young man is not long out of art school and already making his mark with lots of awards.  He is of course and artist, but works in animation and it is his short film called The Making Of Longbird which is up for the award.  It is such a clever little film.
His mum asked if I could make a card for him, here it is;
I was a bit stumped as to what to do, Susan really likes to give me a challenge.
So this is just a simple card, using Xcut stars in gold mirri matted on to red card(meant to represent the red carpet), and black glitter card for the letters. which are Marianne dies and Tim Holtz.
I hope it will do, and I really hope that Will, will win the big one.

Well it's just about lunch time, I'm off to forage in the fridge.
Enjoy the rest of your day,  Kate x
