I Saw Three Ships!

Hello Blogging Friends, How are you all this evening, feeling good I hope, but for those of you who are not feeling too well, ending good wishes and hugs.

You might have noticed that I have put a countdown to my Blog Anniversary on the side of my page, well I just can't believe I've been blogging for almost a year, and how much pleasure Iv'e received from it. Not only have I met some super folk both in reality but also in cyberspace too, and of course I hope to meet some of you in a couple of month's time at the Birmingham NEC, but, what a wealth of crafting and PC knowledge I've learned through you all too. I really began this blogging lark in order to have a record of my cards and I't grown so much more than that.

So to say Thank You for sharing your friendship and committment I would like you to help me celebrated my 1st. Anniversary, by joining in and commenting on Friday 27th Sept.My lovely assisstant, Alistair will pick a number and that blogging friend will win the LOTV Voucher.  Obviously you must be a Follower.
Is this all making sense, I don't do the random thingy, or the sticky post, but will rimind everyone at the start of each post I make until that date.

Phewwww!! That's done, now on to my card,
Little Claire I Saw Three Ships Stamp comes with Sentiment
SB Oval Florals Dies
Hunkydorky Adorable Scorable card
Core'dination Brown Card
Papermainia Christmas in the Country Paper
The Ribbon Girl Brown Seam Binding and Dazzeler
Buttons and Gems from my box
Waterfall Stickles

When I first saw this stamp which is one of LC's latest Christmas stamps, I though it was so diffferent and had to have it, I think it's turned out quite nicely.

Thank you everyone who visited and left commentd on my last card, very much appreciated cos I know it takes quite a bit of time to get round all the blogs.

You've heard of Golf Widows, well I'm to be a Canoe Widow over the weekend as Alistair is away canoing part of the Forth and Clyde canal.  There is only going to be two of them this time, for one reason or another most of the boys have pulled out, so it's just my boy and Ken.
However, I have some lovely ladies coming for a visit on Saturday, yes, Patricia of Summerhouse Crafts and Hazel of Baskets of Joy, and their friend Elaine of The Tearoom( for those who follow Patricia's blog will know of) and I'm really looking forward to seeing them and catching up.  You see what I mean, with out the blog I would never have known them.

Rambled on enough so I will love you and leave you, till the next time.

Hugs Kate x
