Scottish Castle!

Good Evening One and All, are we feeling a bit warmer this evening?  I noticed quite a few of you good folks were beginning to feel chilly and were sweatering up and putting on the heating.
We had so much rain this morning but, cleared up mid afternoon, although there were some large black clouds lurking, nothing else has yet happened.

Thank you for all you comments on my last card and also for entering into the spirit of remembering all the sweeties of bygone years.  Quite a few of you mentioned some I'd not heard of, and some I'd completely forgotten.  Patricia mentioned Penny Dainties which her dad split in two pieces when they went to the cinema, unheard of now as everything is so much smaller.  All the chocolate bars have shrunk, and Turkish Delights are a fraction of what they used to be, but 100% more expensive, just shocking I say.

Welcome to the fold Jacquie of 
 I am delighted that you have chosen to join my little group and I hope you will continue to enjoy what I have to offer when you visit.  Please call in to Jacquie's blog as there are some lovely cards to view.

Here is my card for today,

image from
Core'dinations Card in Black and Grey
Silver Mirri
Papermania Capsule Liquorice Sherbet Papers ( here's the sweetie thing again)
Card Candy in Black
Glamour Dust on the water

This is a lovely image and comes quite shaded already, but I wanted to add a little colour, so the Fleximarkers I have are all very soft colours, just what I wanted to a twilight scene, hope you think it's worked.

Well folks that's me for another day, I've got a bit of a crafty mess to clear up and as I do all my creating on the dining table at the back of the living room, I feel I've always got to clear up.

See you all soon
Hugs Kate x

Hi Kate
Stunning card and beautiful image.
Its not quite at the heating stage in the Midlands. I try and keep it off until mid Oct. My Shaun the Sheep fleece blanket will keep the chills off if need be.
Have a great day.
