The Great Out Doors and Mr. Bond? Or Not!

Hello Everyone and I hope you are all well and enjoying this wonderful weather.  it was incredibly hot here,  too  hot really for me, but it's lovely to have good weather at last.  Unfortunately, I spend most of the afternoon in front of the computer, looking up employment agencies and registering with them.  It doesn't seem to matter what kind of work you're going for applying is all on line, even Asda and Tesco.  I'm just at the beginning of this process as I thought that whilst I am still off work I could take the time to explore what is out there.  I know that I will have to leave my present work, probably sooner rather than later so I thought I'd crack on, have to say there doesn't look like much on offer.

Thanks to all of you who visited yesterday and left lovely comments about my little card.  Some of you were asking about the shape, well I cut the base card with the Xcut leaf die, using the largest, which isn't really all that large. I was delighted that it turned out so well.

My card today;
This was a card for my hubby who needed one very quickly made to send that was last week and it is still sitting waiting to be written by him, after me producing it extremely quickly.

Anyway, Little Claire, Outdoor Stamp Set, I've used it quite a few times,
Prismacolour Pencils
copied one of Alistair's maps
Sentiment from Kirsty Wiseman
Buttons and twine from my stash
Card Candy

                                                Ah, down at last !                                         

                                 Ta Da!, it's Mr. James Bond, err..No, it's Brook Bond                     
Alistair just slays me when I see him dressed like this.  This is what he was doing today, what do you think girls, is this a good look or what?, I think it's the or what.

Have a good evening

Kate in my experience things only get really bad when we need to change direction and are digging our heels in! Sometimes you just need to move on! Cute card!

Hi Kate
How spooky. I too have been parked at the laptop today and submitted 3 job applications. Fingers crossed for the both of us eh?
I thought that the card was for Alastair himself when I saw it as it seems to fit the image I have of him and his outdoor pursuits.
Well, I have to admire any chap who is not afraid to wear rubber in public LOL!!!
Take care
