Game Playing!

Hello to Everyone and I do hope you have all enjoyed the Bank Holiday and have had some lovely weather.
It has been a glorious day up here, blue skies all the way.  I did however think there was the beginnings of an Autumnal feel first thing this morning whilst waiting for the bus,  the air seemed fresher.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last card, I love reading them.

Just a short post today as  I have to go and get organised for choral practise later on, we started back last week, and the first few weeks are always intense when learning new pieces.  Unfortunately I have a stonker of a headache and my eyes are nipping, don't know what that's about, but I have to go.

I've a card that I made a wee while a go that has found it's way to Lewis who is Alistair's son;
I've had the elements for this for a while and I don't remember whose it is but it is decoupaged and matted on to a piece of Core'dinations embossed with a TH embossing folder in wood effect. Papers were from a magazine a couple of years ago and card candy.

The card wasn't made for anyone in particular but, Alistair liked it and thought it would do for him to write a note to his son.   He lives in London and we don't hear from him all that often, so this is how his dad keeps in touch, not too intrusive a method.

I an off now to make my diner, cheated and bought a Sweet and Sour Chicken meal from Markies, with egg fried rice, oh I know how to live when Alistair is off playing.
Cheerio for now
Hugs Kate x

Hi Kate, we have had a glorious day here too. I am sitting in the front garden commenting on your post enjoying the last of the sun and it is still warm.

Your card is lovely, is Alistair's son into board games I wonder? Enjoy yor Markies dinner.

This is a great male card Kate. Yes, we have a good day today too, although like you initially there was a little nip in the air. Enjoy your meal. This is the sort of thing I do when John is away, unless I just make an omelette or something. It's just too much hassle cooking proper meals for one isn't it? Have a good evening. Christine xx

Kate another great card. Love the image. Hope you enjoyed your Markies dinner. I'll need to practise meals for one for when Emma goes off to Uni. I'll be dealing with it 2 days a week. Poor me, ha.

Hope you enjoyed your meal and that your headache has eased...I think the weather isn't helping, very close here needing a good downpour of rain.
Loving your card, a great man card or game player card. My kids love Monopoly and Chess, the youngest one always wins.....I sign of things to come maybe?
Have a super day, hugs Erika. x
