Baby Boy!

Hello to You All, I do hope that all is well with you lovely folk, but here is a HUG just in case you need one.
Thanks to everyone who left  comments on my last post, you are all very kind.
I've had a lovely time on my days off, but all good things must come to an end as I go back to work tomorrow, and it will be the first late shift I've worked since last April, no doubt I'll be flagging by the end of the day.  Upward and onward though, I'm sure it will be fine.
Just a short post today showing a card I made some time ago but never got around to post;
 The image and most of the papers are from a MCS CD Elementary Card Kits
Yellow card
LOTV sentiment
Ribbon, Pearls, Button and Gems all from my box
I think it's quite sweet, just one to have in my stock box.

Now before I go I thought you might like to see one of the wonderful views from our friend's home who we visited at the weekend;
The view is looking towards the Torridon Mountains where there is still a little snow left on them, but it was disappearing fast.  The beach in the foreground is called Big Sands and what a gorgeous beach it is.  This glorious view is what you step out to when you wake up and, depending which way you look you can see the Isle of Skye straight ahead and to the right are the Isles of Harris and Lewis.  We are so lucky having friends living in areas like this and to be so welcoming.

I shall love you and leave you and hope to see you soon, take care everyone,

Kate your card is so very cute but Lordy, Lordy would you look at that view. Oh how I wish I could live there. Scotland is small enough to be able to travel around and I have to tell you, I do love Scotland. Yes my dear, you are quite lucky!

Now I am doubly envious of your lovely friends, after seeing that lovely picture of the view from there house. They wouldn't be interested in a lodger would they. lol.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Kate
Aww, so cute. The teddy is so sweet. What a glorious view. Know that the sunshine makes a difference but I bet its stunning with dramatic skies and lashing waves too.
Hope your shift goes well. Its my late one tomorrow but its generally quieter in the shop in the evening.
Take care.

Erika said...

Hi Kate your friends live in a beautiful place, great views and beach.
Loving your baby card, just perfect. Hope the later shift isn't too taxing...I find the later shift tiring too, when I'm asked to do them. I prefer an early start....never thought I'd say that mind...don't do mornings!
Happy crafting, hugs Erika.
