Good Morning from a very wet one minute, sunny the next Inverness. Boy when the rain starts it's coming down in lumps. No one in this house wants to go out in it, Teallach is snuggled up in his chair, Alistair is at his computer composing a new story and me... well I'm typing this post, after which I will be giving my nails a home manicure ready to go out this evening to our little craft group Christmas night out, a little late, but it it took until now for everyone to be able to agree a date. So looking forward to that and perhaps it will be all rained out.
Thank you all so much for you comments on my last card you are all very kind and for a new visitor,
Dortesjs, thank you so much for your visit and comment and I'll be visiting you shortly.
I'm pleased you enjoyed the photos and yes I consider myself indeed very fortunate living where I do and wouldn't swap it for all the tea in China. I always feel when the sun is shining Scotland is beautiful, but wild rain makes it dramatic, especially Glen Coe, if you ever get the chance to go through the Glen I'm sure you would agree. We have so many wonderful places of beauty the length and breadth of these Islands, but not the greatest of weather and warmth. Anyway on to my card;
I fell in love with this Hobby Art stamp set, and although Highland cattle are all over, I thought this little scene looks like the Highlands of Scotland. Coloured with SN pencils and DI for the sky, I used an aperture card and set the scene behind it and framed it with a Tonic die and some lovely Thistles.
An XCut sentiment die and a few sequins
This is the inside. I love the image of this beautiful cow, and Hobby Art stamps are fabulous to work with. I've edged the card with coloured charcoal to give it a frame. I hope you like it.
I almost forgot my big news of the week.... on Monday 6th March I officially became an OAP, yep that's right I can now expect to collect my" huge" state pension that I've paid into along with millions of others for 42 working years. HUGE LOL!! I was made redundant around 18 months ago but as I was well over 60 there was no way on earth I was doing any more labour, considered I'd done my bit and earned some peace from both mental and physical stress. So I'm just delighted and count myself lucky that I am of a generation that still is able to stop work and get something back.
I hope you are all well, but if not will feel better soon, have a good day whatever you are doing and see you soon. Take care of yourselves,
I'd like to enter my card into ;
