Just to Say!

Hi All, Hope everyone has been having a wonderful day in the sun, but not of course overdoing it.
We went up to Dornoch which has a gorgeous beach and took a packed lunch with us, it was lovely, Alistair even went paddling.  It was lovely to see so many folk taking advantage of the good weather, and lots of little tots dipping toes in the water.  I don't to any dipping, I just sat and read.

Well, an amazing phenomenon happened in Scotland today, the country stood still, no news, no crime, nothing to report except, OUR ANDY WON WIMBLEDON.  That was the sum total of the new bulletin, but at least it was good news for a change.  What a win though, I felt quite emotional and I don't even like tennis.  However, we tuned in when we got back from our beach afternoon and I was rivited like the rest of the nation.  He did so well, it would have been awful if he had lost. What an amount of pressure he must have been under.  So, Scotland is good at at least one sport.

Thank you to everyone who left a comment on my previous card, I love reading them and appreciate the time you all take in visiting me.

My card today, is just a little wee card with the image I used to colour along to Dena's tutorial on colouring with Prismacolour pencils.  I didn't have the one she was using, so I made do with this little one from Little Claire;
I thought it would do for a little note when needed.

LC stamp from Bright Blue Sky set
Prismacolour Pencils
Xcut Leaf die
Papermania paper from Tulip paperpad
Xcut Butterfly Punch
Papermania Bow
Pearls and blue gems from my stash
Star Dust for a little sparkle

Thank you for looking and enjoy the rest of your very warm Sunday,
Hugs Kate x
