Adventure Guy!

Hello Blogging Friends,  I hope your Sunday has been a good one.  We have had rain, wind and sunshine today, in fact, just what was forecast, but we went for a walk in North Kessock, and blew away the cobwebs and it was really lovely, on the way home however, the rain began again.  Hope you have good weather wherever you are.

Thanks to all who left comments on my last card, I do appreciate every one of them.

I've managed to produce a few cards today, on a roll, I guess, I won't have the same opportunity during the week as I will be at work. Here is one of them;
This card is for yet another of our friends who is an outdoor guy.

I have so much use out of  the Little Claire Outdoor stamp set, here I've used elements from the set as embellishments, the main image is by the wonderful Mo Manning, all coloured with Promarkers. LOTV sentiment, Kraft card and Core'dinations card, Paper from Nitwits, it's xmas paper, and card candy.  Found a bit of map I'd photocopied for one of my other cards so used that. The little sentiment on the main image comes with the LC stamp set, and it is just right for Graeme, in fact all of Alistair's friends do "enjoy every moment" when they are off doing their thing.

It's always difficult to find an image for a man's card, especially if the person is interested in  pursuits other than footy, wish I could find something with a Canadian canoe, cos that's one of the other things they do, so if anyone out there knows of any, I would love to hear of it.

That's me for today, off to pour myself a small G&T and devote myself to getting dinner ready.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend,  Kate x

Great male card Kate. Love the character. You must have enjoyed your walk.
I don't do much walking though we did take Ellie to the park last night and took her through the woodland path, and she kept looking about like she was scared. She thought the big bad wolf was coming! Had to tell her no wolves as Granda scared them away for her. Was so funny, her wee face was a picture.
No more Red Riding Hood at bedtime.
