Wee Three Kings and a Little Camel!

Hello to You All, back again after a wonderful girly day out in Glasgow, all by myself, and I managed not to spend too much, even in John Lewis.  I went by the Gold Bus service in which you are given refreshments and sandwiches, shortbread, pancakes, and other comestibles to while away the almost 4hours journey and . I got a bit of reading  and knitting done too, a long day though and although I enjoyed it I was glad to be home.

With this I'm a bit behind with your blogs, but I've tried to get around most.
Thank you all so much for your very lovely comments on my last card and can you imagine my surprise when I was alerted by Ang of "The Ducks Doodahs" that I had been Daily Talented Spotted at Joanna Sheen's Blog Challenge,  I was delighted.

I had a phone call on Tuesday night from Alistair to say what a wonderful time he and Ian are having in Orkney, decent weather, and camp site and visiting all the sights. They will be home on Saturday night and it will be good to have him back.

Here is my offering today;
Now I don't really do religious Christmas cards, but I do have a couple of friends who are religious so I try to do something for them, and I think this lovely LOTV image is just so sweet and reminds me of times gone by when we had Nativity Plays at school.
LOTV ready coloured image
LOTV Frosty Christmas and Krafty Christmas
Core'dinations Card
LC Tag Sentiment
MB Border and  Corner dies
Gems and Ribbon from my box
Star Dust for a little sparkle
 
So, that's me for another day which has been really nice, I met up for a coffee with Wendy, Confessions of a Papersniffer and her mum and her friend Fiona, it's good to catch up. Now it's a relaxing evening with the knitting, so bye for now and have a good evening.
Hugs Kate x

Hi Kate
Well done again. I would have thought Joanna Sheens lot would let you know you were on. . . . . . Good job the Duck was on patrol hahaha!
That's some posh bus you were on. Sounds like one we were on from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur a couple of years ago. It was a double decker but only had about 16 seats as they were full sized leather recliners with TVs and we got a hot meal. Happy memories of visiting my family.
Back on track. . . . . Your card is sweet and those die cuts are fab!
Take care
