Take it Easy!

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends and I hope you are all well and keeping warm.  There is still some snow about, and we have had a bit of a flurry this morning, and it's darkening over as I sit here so my guess is that there will be a bit more.

Thank you to all who visited yesterday and left comments, especially taking the time to read my story.

It's so lovely to have a few days off work, even although I have plans to give the house a good clean, with working full time there are areas that just have to be left for a bit, you know how it is ladies.  My hubby does do his bit, but it's as quick as he can get things finished so he can get out to play. He is away out to play just now, just before he he left he asked if I needed him to do anything, but as he was standing at the door, in full cycling gear, helmet and gloves on, not to mention the I won't mention the Lycra, except to say not a good look,  the question was not for me to take seriously. Anyway he's away for the afternoon, and I am so enjoying listening to Classic FM, I don't get the chance that often, it's wonderful.

My card for today has been made for a friend who has just had a major heart attack, in fact the hospital told him that if he had gone home when he felt "not too good", he would not be here today, and thank goodness for the little cottage hospital in Dingwall who acted so quickly made this wee card in getting him up to Raigmore.  He is only in his late 40s.  So as we can't get up to see him just at the moment;
Little Claire stamp coloured with Promarkers, shades of brown Co-ordination card, sentiments also LC, papers, First Edition Desert blooms and Riverbank Revels, a few pearls from mu box and a little Star Dust.

I've  just noticed that I've not lined up my stamped image onto the brown card well at all, oh well, I just put it down to my signature to get something not quite right.

Signing off now, away to get some homemade soup that Alistair made yesterday.
Have a good day everyone,   Kate x

Lovely card Kate. Sorry to hear about your friend, but hopefully he will make a full recovery. Just you enjoy your music to-day. You asked about printing on canvas. I tape my canvas (from a pad ) on to a piece of A4 copy paper ,just so it goes through the printer and it works superb. I did a photo of the kids and it looks brilliant too. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xx

Good afternoon Kate, great card beautifully coloured and nothing wrong with the position of the image. It is the lines on that paper that are not straight..........LOL!!!
Hope you enjoyed your soup. I would keep an eye on that hubby of yours I can just see him in that Lycra........!!! It would be the helmet that would put me off

A great card again Kate, I always said Charlie didn't do much around the house since he retired oh boy I was so wrong he has been away in Canada for two weeks and I now know how much he does.. The biggest thing is him having the tea cooked for when I get in. Thank goodness he is on his way home stuck at Gatwick B.A. Having problems nothing new. But with luck he should get off by 8.30. 3hrs delay he should have been home by now. Hazel
