Pals Just Lazin' Around!

Good Evening to you all, been glorious up here today, hope its been where you are too.  Sat in the garden early this morning having breakfast, but even then it was pretty hot.

Thank you everybody for all the lovely comments on Bella's card and too for all the good wishes for Alistair's toe.  Norma even sent a recipe for herbal juice that may help.  That's the wonderful thing about this blogging thing, I find that I receive so much, support, advice, good wishes, and so much more from all you lovely people, and I've only ever met two of you.  It's just amazing.

On Saturday I'm off to Perth to meet up with Patricia, Summerhouse crafts, and Hazel, Baskets of Joy. You may remember those who are regular followers that both of these ladies with their friend Elaine came up to Inverness and we all got along great and found we had plenty to chat about, so it's my turn to pay them a visit.  Elaine, however is on holiday, it would have been a difficult choice for her to make, stay and meet Kate or fly off to the USA, ha, ha!!  Anyway, I'm getting quite excited by it and really looking forward to catching up with all their news.

I met up for a coffee with Fiona, one of my choral buddies, that was a really pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, we had a good old moan, but an even better laugh.

Alistair and I went to Aberdeen yesterday, that meant 4 hours there on the bus and 4 back, it was an awfully long way for a lunch.  We were on the bus at 8am and not home until 8.45pm, what a long day, I don't think we would do that again.

My card today;
Penny black stamp
Prismacolour Pencils,   need more practise on colouring fur, but never mind
Core'dinations card
First Edition Desert Blooms paper
Xcut dies
LOTV sentiment
MB Fabulous Phlox Die
Hessian, Pearls and Ribbon from, The Ribbon Girl
Star Dust

That's me, see you soon
Hugs Kate x
