Weeping Geisha!

Good Evening Everyone, I hope today has been a good one for you, with some warm sunny weather.  We have had a really lovely day here in Inverness, a complete change from yesterday.

Thank you all so much for the very kind comments left about my last card, I do appreciate that you all take time to leave some words of inspiration and encouragement.

I've had the day to myself as Alistair was away in the mountains, so I had a crafty day, which included knitting, sadly my knitting is getting put to one side these days as my card making is taking over, and I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with all the cards as the craft fair that I was going to do in November has fallen through but I don't stop making them.

Anyway, I sat down in the afternoon with my knitting to watch The Robe. Now this is a film I've watched countless times and even know the dialogue at the right places, sad or what, but I enjoyed it.

I have a card for you;
I was very lucky to be given  the opportunity to choose some free images by the lovely Ignacio from http://nicecranedesigns.com/  and this one comes from the range called Asian Ladies.

I love Oriental images and when I saw this range I thought got to have that.
I've used, Papermania Oriental Treasures paper, Velum and Sentiment
Core'dinations
Crafter's Companion, Pearl Centura Card
Silver Mirri
Wild Orchid Flowers
Hobby House Pearls
Ribbon and Dove from my box
Glamour Dust

I think this image is my favourite, I think she is weeping hence my post title.
I hope Ignacio will think I've done her justice .

That's all from me tonight, thanks for visiting me
Hugs Kate x

Wow Wow Wow Kate, what a beautiful card. The beauty of the Geisha girl and the backing paper go so well together. A stunning card. Neil was on a hill run yesterday and came in 21st of 235 hill runners, so he was very pleased with that. My knitting is also back in the basket too, but I did buy the wool and pattern for the Debbie Bliss Shetland scarf. Hugs Rita xx

Great card Kate, love the colours and detail. Sorry to hear your craft fair has fallen through. I used to do mine for two chariies but both have had a change and I have no time to organise an alternative, so I have chosen to play with my old and occasional new Christmas stash and just have fun. Sending crafty hugs. xx Flora

Jules said...

Oh I hope she isn't weeping Kate - I see her as daydreaming!

Gorgeous image and such a lovely colour combo.

Sorry to hear the craft fayre has fallen through. I hope you find another to take part in.

Love Jules xx

Hi Kate
what a lovely card. Sorry Im behind but had dentist again yesterday and craft show today.
Is The Robe the one with Victor Mature and John Wayne at the end saying "truly he was the son of God" in an American drawl, not exactly authentic to ancient Palestine lol. Still a good film if its the one Im thinking of. x
