Oak Tree!

Hello to Everyone,  I hope you are well and enjoying your day.  It's as if Summer has decided to come back today, absolutely gorgeous day, blue skies and warm sunshine.  Teallach has been enjoying himself out in the garden chasing bugs, oh the joys of being able to sit outside and enjoy it all.

I was sent this lovely image by my lovely blog friend Annie as she knows that I love trees;
It's a Sheena Douglass stamp, just beautiful and the background is coloured with Oxides,  CB sentiment. 
Kraft card embossed with a Crafters Companion  EF, and finishing off with some red gems.
 It was such a lovely surprise to receive the stamp and one of those images that can be built on, so thanks so much Annie. 

Thank you all for visiting me and leaving such kind comments on my last cards, I do appreciate your time and words. 

Well Alistair has just finished his fiddle practice, and I thought, a little quietness at last, not to be though, he's now mowing the grass,  I think earplugs are the way to go. 

That's me for now, take care of yourselves and see you another day,

A lovely stamp from your friend, what a kind gift. I like how you've done the background, I've not played with my oxide inks yet but hear good things about them.

Have a good day, it's a bit miserable here so I'm doing some crafting this afternoon :o)

Hi Kate
I'm not usually a fan of Sheena's stamps but this tree is fabulous.
We had a lovely warm day Tuesday, with washing out in the Sun. Since them, it's been downhill and wet and cold today.
Best wishes.

I don't have this SD image but I do love it as it is a beautifully shaped tree Kate, and how lovely to receive it as a gift. I love the colours you have chosen and the embossed background looks wonderful and the Kraft card is the perfect foil to the tree, very organic. x
