DIY Dad! and Candy Winner!

Good Afternoon to Everyone, I hope all is well with you, but here are some ((((Hugs)))) for those of you who are finding life sad and difficult just now.

We have a lovely day of sunshine here in Inverness, and really quite warm, I've a load of washing out so here's hoping it will dry.

Today is the day I am going to try and learn to crochet, there must be a you tube tutorial, there is for everything else.  It's just popped into my mind that I've forgotten to take a photo of the socks I was knitting for Kerr's mum and I wrapped them up and sent them off this morning, oh I'm so annoyed with myself, Oh well, you'll just have to take my word for it that they were lovely, just plain but with a lovely sage green and aubergine self stripping yarn, which gives a random pattern.

Well I have to tell you that Karen loved her card and she had a terrific day of Graduation celebrations

Now at this point I will reveal the winner of my Anniversary Candy, and to say thank you for all your good wishes and for joining in with me to celebrated.  Only one winner, I would love to give you all something, but....... it's you Kate Wylie from
Alistair pulled your number out of the hat this morning, so Congrats to You Kate!!  If you would get in touch  with me by email I will send the info in order to get the voucher from Chocolate Baroque.

I have a card for you today which was requested  by Karen for her dad's 60th Birthday and he is a bit of a DIY guy;
I must day that this chap in the image is rather a young looking 60 year old.
Do you know I can't remember for the life of me where this digi image comes from, it could be Just Inklined, anyway it's coloured with Prismacolour pencils.
Limited Edition paper and Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder on grey card
Hessian from The Ribbon Girl
Tools embellishments from Hobby Craft
Peel Off Sentiment and Numbers
Kraft Basic Card

So that is me for today, I've a couple of days to myself as Alistair and his friend Bill are off on an other adventure, honestly the pair of them have just never grown up.

See you soon and have a good day,

Congrats to Kate. For winning your voucher she will have great fun choosing craft stuff.

Love your card, now maybe Karens dad is a young looking 60 year old, if not he will be flattered.

Enjoy your free time- just think the remote all to yourself.

Good evening Kate, love your card, it's brilliant. I am sure the 60 year old will relish the hunky looking guy on his card. Probably make him feel fantastic.
Congratulations to the winner, lucky lady.
Beautiful day here as well, had our after lunch cuppa sitting in the garden.
You will definitely get easy to follow instructions for Crochet on YouTube that's where I got the instructions for my Shawl.
