Susie Ponders!

Hello to you all on this dreach, dark January afternoon, is your weather as bad?  It has rained all day and we have had to have lights on throughout the day.

Thank you for all the lovely comments left on my last post, I appreciate them all.

This is my last day of freedom, back to the grind tomorrow, I can already feel the stress beginning to build up, but we haven't won the lottery again so needs must.  I have enjoyed my holiday even although I was sort of stuck around doors, I do feel rested and I 've managed to get some cards made.  Unfortunately I've not finished the aran cushion cover, oh well there's always next Christmas.

Alistair spent the morning putting his telescope together, and looking at it it should really be at Jordrell Bank, I don't know what I was thinking buying such a large one when we have no space for it, and he can't really keep it out in the shed, nor can he keep dismantling it and putting it together again. Anyway, last night I googled and found an astronomical society here in Inverness, in fact it's really near us at Cullodon, and of course they are participating in this BBC progamme thats on for a few nights this week.  So the next meeting is tomorrow so Alistair is taking himself off to see about joining and hopefully find someone who can give him a bit of help with understanding his telescope.  So that's him with a new hobby and he says he does,'t know how he's going to fit it all in. I don't know how this man ever managed to fit in  work, he's having a hard job to fit in all he does even although he's retired.

So to my card for today;
Once again the photo isn't great, something has happened to my camera, when I switch it on a messges comes up on the screen saying  "this memory card is write-protected", no idea where this has come from, but I've no doubt pressed something I shouldn't have. So this has been taken with my phone.

This is a Sarah Kay stamp and coloured with Promarkers, background papers are First Edition Desert Blooms,  and Adorable scorable card, LOTV semtiment,  Dovecrafts heart doily, Spellbinders flourishes (I think), pearls and ribbon from The Ribbon Girl. a little Star Dust.

I do love Sarah Kay images, they are all so sweet.

So that's me for today, better get moving and see about dinner preparation, Ah... no rest for the wicked as they say.  Take care all,

Good evening Kate,
Your card is wonderful, very thought full.
Beautifully coloured, loving all the Die cuts.

Keep November in mind, if we don`t manage to get to Birmingham maybe you could make it to Glasgow in October for the SECC.

Kate, I do like this card and the Sarah Kay image. Poor you having to go back to work after having such a nice break. I didn't get much time off as I work for to very busy consultants. I was to have the first week in Feb off but granny is dog sitting but won't walk them so I have to go each day and walk them. Ah!!! She does make my life difficult. Hazel

Kate have a look on your memory card in your camera, if it has a tiny little switch on it move it to the other side, re-insert in the camera and you should be good to go. (If my diagonosis is correct!)
Great card, love your layering.
Hope you hubby manages to join the group and sort out his new hobby cause you know what that means! More craft time for you Kate, win, win!
Take care, hugs Erika.
