Whimsical Garden!

Good Afternoon Fellow Crafters and welcome to my blog, I hope you like what you see and will visit often.
I'd like to give a warm welcome to my two latest Followers, Jane and Zoe, thanks you very much for choosing to follow me.  Thank you too to everyone who left lovely comments on my last card, and for all the well wishes on the hernia front. 
 It's a very common complaint I know, and I'm trying to pin point which foods I'm eating makes it worse, and so far it seems as if everything does. The GP has given me tablets to take in the mean time, but they don't seem to have kicked in yet.  Maybe the blood tests will show up something.

Are you all watching the new Hochanda craft programme??  I missed the launch, but I will tune in tonight to see John from Crafting Expressions tonight, I've got permission from Alistair, LOL!!

Anyway here is a card made from using another stencil from The Crafter's Workshop;
Isn't this such a lovely image?  Coloured with DI and matted on to Centura Pearl Card. Sentiment from CB McIntosh Stamps set and a little bit of sparkle.

Again as I said I'm new to stencilling, but I could get hooked, and so easy.

We had a bit of an upset this morning and Teallach isn't talking to us, he brought a wee mouse in which was still alive, just a tiny wee thing. Alistair managed to get it off him and took it to safety, well we hope it's safe.  Puss has been a late developer as far as hunting goes, but boy is he making up for it now.  However, that's cats for you!!

It's turned out to be a wet horrible day, so pleased I don't need to be outside.  That's me for now,
take care everyone and see you soon,

Eek on the mouse! I don't want mice in the house! We had a friend in Florida, whose cat would bring home snakes! UGH!
Your stenciled tree is just lovely. Looks to me like you have the hang of this technique perfectly in hand. Love the multi-colors on the butterflies and that darling little bird perched on the tree limb. Great work. Lucky you to have a new craft show to enjoy. TFS &Hugs

Hi Kate,
I've never had a go at stenciling, but I really like the look. This is a pretty card.
Male cats are usually pretty lazy at catching. I always found our girls were far quicker, and brought me loads of "presents"
Re the hernia and foods, my Mum had to avoid eggs, but then found duck eggs were OK. I hope you can get it all fixed soon

I did have a wee peak at the channel whilst mine were all busy last night. I don't like the backdrop, sad I know but it doesn't look as clean and crisp as other channels.
Great stencilling and great use of colours with them too. It looks beautiful.

Hugs Erika. x

Hazel said...

Kate, I hope you get sorted out soon. I am like you I just wish I knew which foods are causing the problems. Poor teallach I can just see his little face of disapproval Love your card another beauty. Hazel x

Pretty card Kate -- I have not had any success yet using stencils - I guess I had better practice more!

The card is so beautiful, Kate, well done with stencilling and the pretty colours.

I'm still teaching full time whilst studying to become a Head Master. It'll take three years, so slowly slowly one step at the time. Hope you'll feel better soon, hernia can be so troublesome. Have a wonderful weekend sweetie!

Love and hugs

Hi Kate
Beautiful stencilling has created a lovely card.
Hope they manage to get this hernia sorted as it must be like Russian roulette with your food.
Cats will be cats. He's trying to show what a clever boy he is, bless him!
Best wishes.
