Gardening Grandad!

Well it's good to be back, it seems such a long time since my last post.  I hope everyone is well and I can see that most of your are happily crafting away, going by the lovely creations on your blogs, I've tried to keep up with them at least.

My best'est friend, Dale, and hubby, Stewart came for a visit and brought their little Grandson Kerr, at the weekend and it was full steam ahead.  Kerr is only 9 and such a great wee lad and so interested in the things that Alistair is interested in so we planned his time here with lots to do, looking for fossils, going to the observatory, an Egyptian exhibition at the local museum, none of which we could do due to snow and the museum being closed on Mondays.  It was turning in to a bit of a disaster for him as he was all geared up for it. However, Damian, my son, came to the rescue by taking him to see the exotic animals at his friends sanctuary for rescued beasties.   So, he arrived back grinning from ear to ear and full of it. Weather apart we all had a lovely time, and Dale and I caught up with all each others goings on, and Stewart and Alistair talked none stop from the minute they bid each other Good Morning till saying Good Night, and it was all about politics.  So now they've changed the world.  And they say women can talk.

With all this excitement I didn't manage to get any cards made, but this one tonight is one I was asked to make the other week and hadn't posted, here it is;
Do you know, I can't remember where I got this image, it's a digi one, and when I find out I will let you now, anyway it's coloured with Promarkers. Brown Core'dinations card, free papers from somewhere, LOTV sentiment, Sizzix foliage die, twin from my stash, charm from The Ribbon Girl and some peel off numbers, card candy and a little Glossy Accents on the spade and ho.

It was for an 80th birthday and the feedback was that Grandad loved it.

That's all from me tonight, have a good evening,

Kate, I know doubt Grandad loved it, it's great. Glad Kerr had a great time after all, this weather has hampered so many plans, more so for you considering you haven't had much snow this year till now. Here's hoping we get up to see you on the 20th. After the snow put paid to the last visit.

Oh Kate I love that image, especially the L and R touch on the wellies, the little charm works a treat too. Sounds like a fun day was had, my eldest is always happy when doing something animal related too.
Happy crafting....when you get chance!
Hugs Erika.
