Hi to Everyone! How are you all today? Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my CCC card, very kind and encouraging, make it all worth while.
Boy was it cold last night, in fact all day, but it comes to something when I had to wear my thermal underwear under my clothes and a scarf around my neck when in the house, and the heating on. I wonder what we'll do when it gets cold, ha ha!
It was a gorgeous day though, the sun was shining and for a lot of the time the sky was blue, but bitterly cold. We had planned a walk, for yesterday, I'm trying to overcome my aversion to exercise and make an effort to get out more. I really could become a recluse given the chance. Anyway, Alistair is delighted as he loves walking. I don't to hills though, a flat walk I can manage. We decided to go to Findhorn Bay, it's a lovely drive there, and not too far from Inverness. We had lunch out to save rushing back to make an evening meal so the day was ours. Made a flask of coffee for when we got back to the car and set off. It was beyond cold with a wind blowing that felt as it it was lacerating my face, I was cosy everywhere else though, but we only managed about 20 minutes, actually Alistair seemed to feel the cold more than me. I was hoping to see some seals, which I did but through the binoculars unlike Hubby on a walk before Christmas when he saw this little guy, sorry picture heavy here, but the Aw factor is worth it;
Isn't he so gorgeous, the baby seal I mean. Alistair and his friend found him on the beach, thinking he was dead they went over to investigate, but he wasn't dead, just having a wee sleep. Alistair approached him very carefully, and don't worry he didn't touch him, but the wee thing was so curious and not the least afraid. Alistair then noticed the adult seals out in the water keeping an on the baby.
I think these are just brilliant photos and can't think why humans want to kill them. However, I just to be content to see them through the bins.
Now I really do have a card;
I've used a gorgeous CB stamp from the Pretty Bird Cage Set and followed the colours of the challenge, focusing on the lilac shade.
I've also used the beautiful free paper from CB.
Sue Wilson's border die, which I have to say was a b...er to cut out.
I didn't want to add much as I wanted the stamp to be the focus of the card.
I've added little Wink of Stella, but it doesn't show up.
I'm sorry this has been such a long post, but I really wanted to show these photos.
That's me for today, off to put on Game of Thrones whilst I'm ironing, oh the joys of days off.
Have a lovely day whatever you're doing and I hope you enjoyed my post today
