Trimming the Tree! and CCAYR Mid Month Reminder!

Good Evening One and All, hoping you are all well, and big hugs and good wishes to those who are not just as well as they would like to be.

Well what a dark and dreary day we have had up here, smirry rain, you know the kind that soaks you more than a downpour.  It was the kind of day to say indoors but, unfortunately I had to go to work, where in the road my work is in, we have new flood defences being installed and the biggest machinery ever is making such a racket, this has to go on for something like 19 weeks.  We are situated along side the River Ness, but flooding can't be brought to mind in living memory.  Inverness Council love spending the Tax Payer's money, and believe me this will be costing a fortune as the some road was dug up this time last year and now they are doing it again.Tirade over, makes my blood boil though.

Thanks you all so much for all your wonderful comments about the little cards.

I'm here with my Mid Month Reminder Card for CCAYR, there is still time to enter the challenge which this time is Preparing for Christmas and you can find details of the challenge here, http://christmascardsallyearround.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/october-challenge.html

Hi Kate
Gorgeous card Kate. Love it. Is that Holiday Magic I spy? Its one of my favourite folders.
Our council are the same. They fill in the same potholes time after time instead of doing a proper job once and for all.
Have a great evening.
