My Friend Flakie

Good Afternoon Everyone and what a lovely one it is too, a bit blowy, but it is sunny.
Thank you everyone who left comments on my last post, I love when they arrive, and it's great reading them.
A warm welcome also to my latest followers, I am so chuffed that you take the time to visit my blog.

Yesterday, Patricia, Sister Hazel and their friend Elaine came up to Inverness and we had a lovely afternoon.  this is the first time we have met and it was if we had known each other for donkeys, plenty to talk about.  They are three very lovely ladies, and it's going to be such fun going to the craft fair in Birmingham together in November.  We blethered about everything, crafting was mentioned occasionally of course.  I hope to be able to travel down to Perth or somewhere nearer them later on in the summer, I'll have my flexible friend (bus pass), by then, so not so expensive to travel. Gosh I would never have thought that turning 60 would have anything to recommend it!!  It was a full day for them, but we all enjoyed meeting one another.

On to my card for today;

I've used a Sugar Nellie digi stamp, and coloured with pencils, stamped on to SP oval die, sentiment is LOTV, Hunkydory swirlie card, and First Edition Stocking Fillers paper from LC. Snowflakes punched out of glitter card, WO flowers Card Candy and gems from my box.  Inked frame with Festive Berries Distressed Ink. A little Star Dust.

I would like to enter this into;  http://www.sugarbowlblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/challenge-102-april-2013.html 
"Anything goes"

Another card for the craft fair in November.  I can't really bare that I'm doing cards for Christmas in April, but I  guess I'll need quite a few for selling so must crack on.
Thanks to everyone who has given me advice on what to do for the craft fair, everything hepls as this will be my first.

Off now to finish the socks I've been making for a friend, I had one row of shaping to do and I just couldn't manage it last night, all the talking and excitement wore me out, ha ha!!
Have a good Sunday,
Kate x

I have to admit I got my bus pass a year ago but have only used it once - it's good to have though.

Kate. Another great card, beautiful image and layout, glad it's turned out nice here, because this morning I might have thought it wouldnt be long till Christmas, it was very windy,cold and dull.

Yes it was a really good day yesterday, like yourself I felt we had known one another for ages and were just meeting for lunch. Did me the world of good, took my mind off my six month check-up tomorrow.

Enjoy having some more down time. Hazel xxx

Hi Kate, love your card not too early to start Christmas cards. Glad your day went well sorry I could not be there. Had a hectic day with my sister and he boys, my sister's knee is showing no sign of getting any better and she is still using crutches to get around. Hope things improve for her soon.

Take care.
