Walking in the Air, and the Birthday Boy!

Hello Blogging Friends, back again and managed to have a bit of a catch up with your blogs.  I'm at a loss to think where all my time is going, and it's amazing how a couple of days away from home can knock you out of kilter.  I'm busy trying to get washing and general housework done before I go away on Thursday. Thankfully I don't need to cook for Alistair, he is awfully good at foraging for his own tucker, and talking of Alistair, it's his birthday today and although, I made and posted his card away back in February, I thought I would put it here again, as I've loads more followers than then and I thought you might like to see it, I have to say  Hubby loved it.
I love this image from Acidrops and Whatnots called Nudie Norman, because Alistair was loosing weight , purposely, and he was doing my head in with all the weighing in, and I just kept saying I loved him just the way he was, so when I saw this stamp I though it was just the thing.

I do have an newly made card too;
It's the lovely Snowman and I've decoupaged him from a Hunkydory kit I bought  last year., so no great imagination involved. I was asked to do some children's cards and I don't know anyone who doesn't like the Snowman, old or young.

Thank you all for visiting and leaving your very kind comments, and I'm so pleased you liked the Anniversary card.
I've an evening to myself, as Alistair and his friend will be off to the Astonomical meeting after diner, so I just maybe get a little crafting done.

I'm hoping to run into some of you fab folk at the NEC on Friday, so if you see me, make sure to say hello, I know its an awfully big place, but you never know.  I'm making a list of the stalls I want to find and it's getting longer by the day.

I hope everyone is fine and well, and if not, hope it won't be long before you're feeling better.
Keep safe everyone and hope to see you soon,

Happy Birthday to Alistair and what a gorgeous card for him, I need that image for my hubby as he gets older the more interested he is in his weight. The Snowman card is lovely too. Hope you all have a wonderful time at the NEC.

Love both your cards but Alistair's birthday card is fabulous. Must get that stamp! John is actually unable to gain weight even with his meds so this image would be fantastic and would probaby give him a laugh!

Hi Kate I don't remember seeing this before but its fab! Alistair sounds very much like my husband Dave he weighs himself every day religiously I do all I can to avoid the scales! So wish I was going to NEC but things have been happening in my family so I need to make an emergency trip to London. Have fun! Susan x

Your Christmas card is stunning. I loved seeing that video - all music I do believe. You will be leaving tomorrow so whatever you are doing, have a wonderful time doing it!!

Hi Kate, you did make me giggle with your card for your hubby. Love it. Especially the strategically placed greeting!
Liking your Christmas card too, always reminds me of the Christmas Iron bru advert.
Have a fabulous time at the NEC, look forwards to seeing what new goodies you come home with.
