Bringing home the Christmas Tree!

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends and what a horrible, nasty and cold day it is here, with squalls of rain.  I hope where ever you are it is better.  Alistair has just shouted me through to see the Scottish News where it is reporting on the weather in Corgaff, which is up and over the Gairngorms, and it has so much snow that the roads are closed.  We go over that way quite a bit as Alistair used to live there and we have a lot of friends there, in fact w,e will be over there in June at a friend's daughter's wedding and the ceremony is outside in the garden, and to think we were worried about rain.

I hope you are all well today.  Thank you all who visited me yesterday and left your lovely comments.

Well I spent ages trying to transfer my music,  something has transferred, but no sound., very strange.  I've decided life is too short to bother with this and will put it aside until sometime again.  I've looked at You Tube tutorials and asked at where I bought the tablet, bought the little memory disc thingy, but it's not worked.  I do wonder how I managed to get this blog up and running, must have been sheer fluke.

I have yet another Christmas card today, I'm well ahead, but I found out the other day that the craft fair has been cancelled, the lady who was going to be responsible for organising it has had to pull out and no one has taken it over, such a pity, however I'm left with load of cards. Anyway not to worry, no doubt I will find a use for them.   Here is my card;
I've used:  LOTV stamp and Sentiment
                 Promarkers
                 SB Marvellous Squares
                 Core'dinations Card
                 Bella Papers
                 Flowers from WO and Hobby House
                 Foliage Sizzix Die
                 Pearls from Hobby House
                 Crafter's Companion Sparkle and Spray on the Topper
That's it, and I would like to enter this into:   http://ilovepromarkers.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/challenge-169-anything-goes.html

Have a good day  and see you soon

Hi Kate,
I love this card and image. So perfectly created.
Love the image and colours used. Those dies are fab too.
Just got back from my singing outing. It makes it all worth while to see the residents enjoying themselves, and beautiful smiles on their faces.
I am starting to get over my nerves now.
I too am not very good with technology, I sometimes wonder too how I got my blog up and running. You look at some peeps blogs and they seem to know just what to doing all the time.
Your blog looks really great to me.
Good luck with your transfer of music, it's not on mute in the settings by any chance.
Have a wonderful crafty evening.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hello Kate, my son Alisdair drove through the night from Helmsdale last night as he works with Network Rail and said it was the worst he has seen all winter. Luckily when they got to Dunkeld it dried up and the journey home was fine.
My first love is polar bears and I used to make loads of them. So this card is a definite winner for me and you have captured it beautifully. Sorry to hear about the fair ,but hopefully there will be another one turn up nearer the time. Hugs Rita xx

This is gorgeous Kate. I love the image, beautiful colours and wonderful embellishments.
I do hope the weather improves soon. I think I heard somewhere that this has been one of the coldest Springs on record.

Great card Kate, love that sweet image of the Bears.
Oh! My! Goodness! will you stop the Christmas Crads..........I saw snow again on the hill I see out of my kitchen window. John Jnr has just come down from Pitlochry to say the Glen Shee road was closed today because of "SNOW"
If I was not going on Holiday next week I think I would go back into Hibernation.
Have a Great Weekend

its a beautiful card Kate but a real shame about the craft fair - when you put al the effort into an event and it doesn't happen - but like you say you can always find a use for them! Hope tomorrow's a better day weather wise for you! Hugs rachel xx

Hi Kate another Christmas card you are diligent and what a fabulous one too! I always leave mine to the last minute and panic! Trouble is by the time Christmas is over I am sick of doing them and can't really face any til October!! When will I learn! The weather up in your neck of the woods has been terrible, we will soon be going into summer! Have a good weekend Susan x
