Time to Go!

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends, what perishing weather we are having, and my thoughts really go out to all of you who have the snow and blizzards.  We up here in Inverness have had snow flurries not really coming to much, but oh so cold, with a biting wind.  So I hope you are all keeping safe, warm and cosy and if you can't manage out, you'll get lots of crafting done.

I'd like to welcome my latest follower, Sue, and hope that you will enjoy visiting my blog.  Thanks to all who left comments yesterday.

Now I must tell you of the fabulous pendants that I received from Patricia at They are simply stunning and made by Patricia and her sister Hazel to raise money for Maggie's unit in Ninewells hospital in Dundee.  Some of you might already know about this, but I just wanted to mention it here in case anyone would like to see them.  Patricia has a photo on her blog.
In reality though the pendants are so much more as the work that goes into them and the story of how they came to be made is marvellous.  If you are looking for an extraordinary gift for someone, or, even if you want to treat yourself, have a look at them, and remember it all goes to a good cause as Patricia and Hazel only use some of the money to buy more materials.

So to my card today, made for our Operations Manager who is now leaving the Organisation, he has had some health problems and I think that he feels that now it's time to go.  He will be missed.  Here is what I came up with;
I've used a clock stamp from Kanban and distressed it with ink, Core-ordination card, Papermania papers, Kanban gold foiled paper, sentiment computer generated, and some card candy.

I've kept it fairly simple, I hope he will like it.

That's me for now. working tomorrow so don't know if I will manage to get another card made over the remainder of the weekend.
Enjoy your weekend,  Kate x

Hi Kate
Another great card, your output is prodigious! Mind you with this weather, it's better in that out and what better way to spend the day. Like you we've had very half hearted flurries at best but a bitingly cold wind which gets right into your bones. It's enough to make me knuckle down and get on with my next magazine projects now that I've finished typing up the class sheets.
Keep warm
