Hello to Everyone and welcome to my bit of Blogland on this Saturday afternoon.
I hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.
It's been a quiet day for us today as we were away yesterday to visit our friend who is recovering from cancer, I mentioned him a little while ago. He is now finished with his very intensive treatment and goes for a scan in a couple of weeks to see if it is all gone. We thought he was looking well considering what he had gone through and is back painting, he is a fabulous artist. We had a lovely visit, but oh my the weather was dreadful, chucking it down. It was a full day out, so today is an easy one.
I have a wedding card that our friend Dougie asked me to make for his Granddaughter who is getting married soon. She won't look at my blog so feel I can show it. Along with the card I made a box for it and a gift bag to put them into. I angst over this project and had quite a few attempts that went in the bin, but finally got it all together;
Sorry once again for the photos. I used a beautiful LOTV image, lots of WO flowers. Starlight paints on background, had to mix to get the eau di nil shade, various dies, lace and pearls.
Thankfully Dougie loved it, and had asked me to make on for his daughter who is getting married in 2018, so lots of time to angst about that one. I think I've gotten out of the way of making commissioned cards, just doing designs to suit myself, I got myself into a tizzy about this one because it was such a special occasion and for a dear friend.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last card and for liking my photos, I've got a couple of photos of Peter and Jean's gorgeous Icelandic pony, that happened to be down in the lower field yesterday,
She is such a sweetie, 30 years old, but now way does she look that. She was born in that field and lived with her mum and aunt all her live, they have sadly gone now, but she has the geese who come into her field to keep her company.
Whilst I was out taking the photo, I noticed what looked like a couple of large birds flying above, dashing to the car to get the binoculars I discovered that one was a Golden Eagle, I think the other was a buzzard, but oh my to see an Eagle in the wild, just put the icing on the cake so to speak.
Unfortunately, all I had was my phone to take pictures and by the time I was trying to capture a shot both birds had moved too high. That is the fist time I've seen one that's not been in a zoo. They others were amused at my excitement as living where they live Golden Eagles are fairly common sights, and of course with Alistair climbing mountains he see them too. It's the simple things in life that make it so special and wild life does it for me.
So Folks, that's me for now, you all take care and see you soon,
