Season's Greetings!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying some of this good weather, although I'm hearing that some areas in Englandshire are having such heavy rain, thunder and lightening, hope that's not some of you fine folk.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my previous post, very kind of you and I appreciate each one of them.

The sun has been glorious here and we took ourselves off for a drive to Findhorn, where there is a lovely beach. Well the world and his missus was there, and we waited around an hour for our lunch order to arrive. The little beach cafe were so overwhelmed with people that it was difficult to cope. The owner kept coming out and offering us extra drinks whilst we waited and even a bowl of chips which Alistair devoured as he said he felt as it his throat had been cut. Anyway when our food arrived it was worth the wait.

So my card today is the opposite of a hot sunny day, it's a Snowman;
This is a Papermaina stamp and I've coloured him with Zig watercolour pens, and inked around the edges with DI. Parcel dies from Tattered Lace, gems and Star Dust for that added sparkle.

That's me for now, enjoy the rest of your evening and see you soon,

The Tattered Lace parcels die just finishes off the card. Love the shading around the edges of the card too, as this draws your eyes to the cute snowman in the centre. Thank you so much for your constant support Kate, really appreciate it xx..
Hugs Jennifer

Hi Kate, I am always up for a snowman no matter the weather or time of the year! Your card is wonderful, and colored up beautifully. Love it. Because of the long weekend here, the crowds were the same here, every place was overwhelmed and crowded. Warm weather brings us out of our winter doldrums.

Hugs
Sue

Ha ha I spy a fab snowman, great colours. We have been lucky some overnight rain last night, otherwise been lovely.

Anne said...

It's a bit miserable here today Kate but I don't mind because I've got caught up with my inside jobs - I like to be in the garden when it's sunny so things get neglected!
Local places that we enjoy a quiet walk are always overwhelmed with people when the sun comes out, such a shame that the regulars who are not just fair weather visitors get pushed out because there is nowhere to park and you can't get in the café!

Always love to see a snowman, great Christmas card
