Summer Time!

Hello Everyone, how are you all doing today?? I hope you are well, but sending kind thoughts out to those who are not so good.
Our friend Dougie is going through an operation today in Aberdeen, it's on his spine, and there is a chance that it may not work for him and leave him worse off. The whole condition is quite complicated, but for several years now he has been in awful pain, it's arthritis, and it also affects his eyes. He has had to give up mountain climbing, and music to an extent, he was part of the little music group that Alistair is in. So we are really sending out healing thoughts to him.

Thank you all for your visits and he lovely comments you leave, I appreciated it all.

I've got another one of my Crafty Individuals creations to show you today;
 I've used CI-368 and watercolours  and you can find the stamp  here with a SB die behind it. CI beautiful paper with a selection of ticket and postage images that are also from CI. Sentiment stamped on to velum is from CI.

Well that's me for now folks, hopefully I can get around to visit your blogs later, enjoy the rest of your day,

I hope your friends operation goes well Kate and that it resolves or at the very least alleviates his symptoms.
A gorgeous card, love the pastel colours and pretty stamped image. I always forget about using vellum, especially for sentiment stamping, thanks for sharing this.
