Thomas Kincaid, Tranquil Scene!

Hello my very crafty Friends, and anyone who pops in.  I hope you are all well, but here are kind thoughts that if your not, that you'll feel better soon.

I was surprised to find that I am a Follower missing,  I had 80 of you fab people and now it's 79. I'm sorry to have lost your company whoever you are, I hope you'll come back again sometime.

Thank you all so much on the lovely comments on my Hearts, your very kind, and I'm pleased to report that Dale and Amanda both loved them.   I'm sorry to have missed commenting on some of your blogs, but it was a whirlwind of activity while we were away and I didn't get much time to journey through blogland.

We had a great time with our friends and the Jazz Festival was fab, loved it all and had a really good catch up with Dale, we always have such a laugh when we are together.  Alistair and Stewart never stopped talking from the minute we met up, and they say women can talk!!

Anyways, back home and back to work.  What a scorcher we had today, and I was on the cooking duty today, I was about melted, but the good thing was that I wasn't working late, and got home to a nice quiet house as my hubby is away overnight doing something that needs a wetsuit, coast steering or something, lets me catch up with bits and pieces.

My card is one I made quite a while ago but never posted;
It's a Thomas Kincaid image which is decoupaged, matted and layered with Hunkydory Adorable Scorable Card.
New Leaf paper from First Editions
Hessian and Seam Binding from The Ribbon Girl
Hunkydory sentiment
Dazzler from Creative Expressions

No one in mind for this one yet,  so just for my box.

Well, that's bed time for me now, I'm quite tired tonight, probably the heat, so hopefully I might get a decent sleep.

Take care everyone and see you soon,

Sounds like you had a good time but I know it is hard to return to work in the heat.
Your card is lovely. I always like a little hessian...give such lovely contrast and texture. Your Thomas Kincaid looks great!
