Black and Silver!

Hello Everyone, hoping today sees you all well, but if not then sending out kind thoughts that you will feel better soon.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my last card, I know it takes time and I do appreciate your visit to my wee bit of Blogland and your comments.

I was at my multi-cultural ladies group today and doing more sewing, this time it's tweed handbag that one of the Jordanian ladies is teaching. This lady is amazing in what she makes and makes it all seem so easy, anyhow I'm enjoying it.

Just a short post today, I've spent far too long on the computer and I think it's given me a headache, not to mention that I wanted to do a bit of crafting and never got around to it.
This is a DoCraft's image inked up in Versafine ink, silver ink around the edges and matted on to black card. The paper is from First Edition, some ribbon and black and crystal gems. Very simple, but I thought quite effective. Alternative colours for Christmas.

Here is a photo of my contribution to the quilt made by our group for one of the ladies who has just had a baby, never thought but should have taken a photo of the completed quilt;
The whole quilt was quite stunning, you'll have to take my word for that I'm afraid. Took me ages to make this little square.

Alistair is out at his music group tonight so I've got control of the TV zapper.
Enjoy your own evening and see you soon,

This is a very elegant and stylish card design Kate, I think it's gorgeous. Sometimes the simplest designs turn out to be the most eye-catching and this certainly is one of those.
Hope you enjoy your evening and happy channel hopping ! :)

Hi Kate
Love your terrific contemporary card. The tree stamp is fab.
I can just about manage sewing up a hole in a sock so your section of quilt looks brilliant.
Hope you enjoyed your custody of the remote.

Haha, I loved your closing comment, Kate! They do tend to like to control the zapper, don't they?! Your quilt square is gorgeous, so soft and silky! I love the vibrant blue polka dot material. And your card in black and white and silver is so elegant!! Hugs, Darnell
