You Make Me Happy!

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends,
I hope everyone well, and for those who are perhaps not too well, sending you Hugs!!
Thanks to all of you who took time to visit me and left a wee message, I love reading them.

Lovely day here, sunny, although when putting the washing out this morning it felt quite cold, hands were like ice, but never mind it was sunny without wind or rain.
Had a day to myself, Alistair away for a walk with his chums, an early start of 7.30, so he'll come home exhilarated, but tired. I've knitted, made a card, thought about making soup but did'nt, reallyjust took things easy.  I was so tired last night when I came home from choral practise I couldn't even be bothered to post anything, in fact at one point I thought I was going to have to leave early, but we are so close to our concert date that I can't afford to miss anything.  There's always instructions from our conductor to take note ofn not only musically, but when to stand and when to sit, and it's always an anxiety that I'll get something wrong on the night.

Anyhow here is the card for today;
Isn't this image fab, the minute I spied it I had to have it, it's from The Paper Shelter, digi stamp, and I think it's called Love Bubbles. It comes as a set with image for colouring and one already coloured, this is the coloured one, the background paper is also part of the set. I've matted it on to black Core'dinations and distressed the edge to reveal an orange shad underneath. Xcut border, Sentiment from LC, Ribbon Girl ribbon, and hessian, Hobby House pearls. I think the foliage is a SB die only because I had trouble cutting it, big gem from my magic box and Star Dust.
It's very green and in reality much more vivid, but I'm pleased with it, hope you like it too.
I will probably get some more crafting done tonight, the football will be on and Alistair likes to watch the big European teams.
Bye for now hopefully see you all soon

Kate, I love this image it's just so cute. Not so good that you are still not feeling 100%, and so glad to hear you are taking it easy.
Alistair hopefully has had a good day, and his weather has been good to. We have had a lovely day here and sun still out.

Take care. Hazel

Hi there Kate - I love your card - such a fab image and your colouring is brilliant - hope you're feeling a little better today - in answer to your question the scarecrow festival is at a village nearby to where I live called Wray - every |Year the villages chose a theme then people make their scarecrows to fit the theme - and stand them in their gardens/ around the village - the scarecrows are more like human sized models than scarecrows per se - they usually have cloth or papier mache heads etc. - its lots of fun and we love to visit every year! Hope that helps your understanding!! Hugs rachel xx
