Where's the Mountain!

Good Evening Everyone, gosh Friday again aren't the weeks just flying by, frightening really.
Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend doing what ever you like doing best.  I got some of the kitchen cleaned, left the two most horrid cupboards, I'll tackle them tomorrow, normally I'll do the worst tasks first but for some reason I couldn't start with these ones this morning, I think Alistair was in my way....blame him anyway.

My card today is for a work colleague who is having a hip replacement done and he is a bit like Alistair in that he loves the mountains and has climbed just about everywhere in the world worth climbing.  He was really very apprehensive about the op, but he knows it worked out really well for Alistair who is now fitter than ever.  Here is the card;
I have used one of Alistair's photos of a mountain, it is Scurr na Lapic, with snow, and photocopies one of his maps, however as Alistair was out I couldn't ask where this mountain was so that I could use the correct map, so the map bares no relevance to it.  Pete will spot the mistake right away, I put it down to yet again one of my little signatures.
So, Little Claire The Great Outdoors stamp set,  Pete Promarkered up and cut out, rucksack and boot embellishments from my box. sentiments from Kirsty Wiseman with a bit of distressed ink.
I've used this stamp set quite often now as you can imagine we have a lot of outdoor men friends and thankfully manage to do something different each time.  I am really quite pleased with how this has turned out.

That's all for tonight folks, enjoy your weekend, hope you get lots of crafting done or if your at the Harrogate show have a great time buying lots of crafting goodies,

Kate once again you have put together a brilliant card, you have thought of the person that is receiving it and worked every thing round them producing the perfect card for them, he will spot your wrong map but thats your signature as you say and it means he has really looked at his card. Funny how we all hate doing those cupboards.
