Feed the Birds!

Hello Crafting Friends, I hope everyone is well, but sending HUGS to those in need of them.
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my previous card, I do appreciate them and love to read them all.

We have been away for a couple of days in Cullen which is in the North East of Scotland.  Love little town on the coast.  Boy, what weather though, we must have picked the worst of days as the rain and wind were gale force.  The sea was so churned and the waves were coming over the walls on the pier.
Magnificent really.  There has been quite a bit of flooding in Inverness though, luckily not us though.

It was bad timing though because of Teallach being so new with us, but it was all booked before he came, and the SSPCA wouldn't keep him until we came back.  However, Damian and Moreen came and tended to him.  They hadn't seen much of him though as he kept under the sofa, but this morning he came out to see Damian, so Damian spent a bit of time with him and they are now pals.
As I'm typing this he is sitting by my side with a paw on my arm.  He is the most lovely friendly boy, but has little sharp claws which cause me to ouch as he does lots of kneading, but, I believe that;s a form of bonding.

I've a card I made an age ago but never posted, it's one of the LC Club Stamps from around this time last year;
I've coloured with Promarkers, the base card, images, sentiment and papers are all from LC
Star Dust for sparkle.

Sorry I've not managed around to comment on your wonderful creations, I'm trying to catch up, so hopefully I'll get around to you.

Take care of yourselves, and see you soon,

Kate, a beautiful card love the design. Yes you didn't pick the best of weather to go away in. Teallach needs his claws trimmed, such a pity you didn't live nearer, our Gillian is dab hand at doing this seeing how she has three cats to do. Hazel x

Hi Kate
There's a few of us made these multi layer cards recently and this one is super. Lovely images too.
My friend Nesta is staying in Ullapool this week and visited Inverness yesterday. She's having a lovely time but said its been wet and nippy.
How lovely that Teallach has settled in. I used to call it pussyfooting but it can be painful lol!
East wishes.

Hope you had a nice time in Cullen Kate, my mum was from Portsoy the next small town along the coast. What a shame about the weather though. Did you manage a sneaky look in Geraldine's shop while you were there? Lovely card too Kate, love the concertina effect. Shona xx

This is a gorgeous tag card Kate, love all the images. Glad you enjoyed your trip, we're trying to organise a quick tour up to John O Groats and back down the west coast but the long range forecast isn't great! Carol x

My goodness girl...this is fabulous. I can't seem to manage to create one card and you have championed four fabulous images into this beauty.
Love the design and that tag look fold.

Great card!

Thanks for the kind comments on the new house. We are excited but don't get posession till Jan 23 as they are building a house.
We have a few things we want to do to put our mark on it...but will do it gradually over the first year!

Love the tag card so different. Pretty images as well. Aww, your new baby missed you, how sweet. He has such pretty markings. I miss having a kitty, but this pup we have is enough.


Have A Scrap Happy Day said...

That's a very lovely accordian tag card Kate. Oh, I'm glad Teallach bonded with Damian. Looks like he won't let you out of his sight now huh? He sounds like a very loving and affectionate kitty who's very happy to have you and Alistair back home.

Gorgeous card Kate, glad to hear that you enjoyed your little trip even if the weather didn't behave well.

Warm hugs

MaryH said...

Kate, your little mini-vacation sounds wonderful, despite the wet weather. I expect you still found fun things to do & places to enjoy some good food. So glad to hear your new family member is beginning to bond & feel more at home. Your folded card is lovely. The scenes on each fold are just delightful, with your wonderful coloring, and the pretty matting on the DP. TFS & Hugs. Have a great week ahead.

Norma said...

Hello sweet friend, it sound like you had a wonderful time on your vacation:) Your tags are fabulous!! Thank you for stopping by Kate!!

Love the tag effect card Kate, the designs go so well together and using the same DP on each section really ties everything together so well. The weather was awful wasn't it but glad you enjoyed the break
