Forest Friends!

Hello Everyone, Monday again, gosh they are not long in coming around again, the weeks are flying by.  I hope you are well and that your weather has improved. We have a beautiful sunny day, Alistair has gone out for a cycle, and I've been busy packing for a few days away. We are travelling down to Dumfries tomorrow and our neighbour is keeping an eye on Teallach.  We are going back to a hotel we stayed in a couple of years ago as it's so comfortable.....big leather sofas and chairs around a big open fire, my kind of comfort.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my CCC cards, always appreciated  and happy that you find time to visit.

I've got a little card for you today that I want to enter into a challenge;
Now it looks like it's a Christmas card, but it's not, the green of the hills are is not showing up too well, but it's all about not only the little things....sentiment from CB, but all the little Forest Friends. The Animals and fir trees are all from a Magazine, forget which one, and the other trees and birds are from Card-io.
I would like to enter this card into;http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/march-challenge.html

I had a lovely walk with the dogs and Damian yesterday and no snow, but it was a long walk so I was whacked at the end of it. I took a few photos....Sorry...



Always difficult to catch a shot of Rowan, she's always on the go. Milo loves picking up branches and he came across this beauty and just had to lug it along with him, he walked a good bit with it and lucky that no one passed us on the track as he wouldn't have let go of the branch.

I'll not be around for a few days commenting, but will see you all when we get back home. Off now to wind a skein of yarn into a ball for taking with me, think I'll take some colouring to do as well.

Take care of yourselves and see you anon,

Super card Kate. Milo certainly had a good time. Enjoy your few days break and keep warm round the fire. I did manage to get to the dentist but it was a very drive for the first couple of miles. The main road was clear as they grit it obviously but there were still really big snowdrifts even by the main road. Hopefully it will be gone soon. Hugs Christine xx

What a wonderful card Kate. The forest is my favourite place and you have almost all of my favourite forest animals in it! This is a variation on my favourite quote too!! It's funny over the years, how my idea of what 'the little things' are, but the quote remains true no matter what. Looks like you had a wonderful walk with the 'kids', best part about the seasons changing! Have a great week. hugs :)

Hi Kate
You have created a lovely scene with the Card-io stamps. I just had to buy another set (The Gerbera Garden) at the NEC to add to my Card-io collection.
Love the snaps of the dawgies and fab scenery.
Hope you are enjoying your break. Sounds just like your lodgings in Coventry lol!!!
