Blue Baubles!

Good Morning to One and All, I hope everyone is well, but to those who are not so well, here is a BIG HUG and I hope you fell better soon.

It is a wonderfully sunny morning here in Inverness, so I'm hoping it brightens up spirits.  My spirit is very bright as I'm off work for the next four days, however, the lovely sunshine is showing up the state of the windows so, I'm thinking this is going to be on my to do list of jobs around the house.

Thank you for all the very kind comments on my last card, they are never easy to do and I guess that is why I never have one already made in my box.

We really enjoyed our meal out on Friday night, the restaurant lived up to it's reputation, and by no means expensive, we will certainly visit there again.  All good Scottish sole food, I had steak pie and the beef melted in the mouth, Alistair had loin of pork with Stilton and an onion chutney and whiskey sauce. The deserts were to die for, Baked Alaska, and for Alistair a wonderful sticky toffee pudding.
I would definately recommend going there, it was a lovely evening.

Now, my card was to be my DT card for the mid month reminder at CCAYR, but I forgot to send it to Tracey to put on her blog post, I don't know how I managed to do this, I'm usually organised, but I think it's something to do with the days just running away.
Anyway here it is;
The Challenge is to make a card in blue and white.
Papermania Stamp
Papermania sentiment
Wow Embossing Powder
Cord'ination blue card
Blue gems and Bow also from Papermania

I hope you will visit CCAYR and see what the other DTs have made and there is still time to enter the Challenge.

That's me for now, enjoy your Sunday whatever your doing and I hope you are keeping safe from the awful floods

Hey Kate - where do I start. You should see my windows!!!! Your dinner sounded wonderful and I have to admit, I loved everything Alistair ordered - or I think I would if only I could go there!
Your card is lovely - I have tried to hard to emboss a stamp like you have used and have not had any success at all. Beautiful job Kate!
