Flowers for You, Friday's Oldie!

Good Morning Everyone and hoping your day is getting off to a good start.  Mine got off to a very early start as Teallach decided to have a play at 4:30 this morning, running around like a mad thing, jingling his toys which have bells, scratching the carpet.  Alistair was very tired and so that he wouldn't be too disturbed I decided to get up and have a play with him, the cat I mean not Alistair lol!
So I will be quite tired later on I guess.

We had a lovely day yesterday despite the weather, really dark day and rain, I got to John Lewis to buy my lovely Liz Earle skin care bits and pieces and tried to do little bits and pieces of Christmas shopping. Didn't get very far with that though, kept saying, not paying that for that, everything is so expensive, but there again maybe I just wasn't in the right frame of mind yet.

I'm here with my Friday Oldie;
I think this is a lovely image, LOTV of course coloured with Promarkers and I think the paper is from the Tulip range from Papermainia..  The little silk rosebuds I found in a local charity shop.

I'm off into the town later, Alistair's birthday is next week and I've still not got his prezzie so I'd better get that organised, and this evening Damian and Moreen have invited us out for an Indian meal at a new place just along the road from us, so looking forward to that.  I've still to make DH birthday card, I really am not together this year.

Thank you all for your kind comments on Kerr's card, very much appreciated.

Keep well everyone and sending kind thoughts for good health for those that need them and see you soon,

Good morning Kate, so glad you explained it was the cost you were playing with, had a laugh at that. Goes to show how it changes the text of what was being said. It was a pity about the weather, but glad you had a good day. I forget it was Alistair birthday next week. As didn't you buy him something for it at the NEC? A great oldie again, with the lovely LOTV image. Hazel xx

Great card Kate, I love that sweet image. Wonderful colouring and design.
Mmmmm!! 4.30am because of a "cat" ...... I don't think so, will pass on that.
While I was away I saw lots of nice things but came home with very little (can't say the same for the rest) Like you I just don't think I had my "shopping" head on.
Must get it on for next week though.
Have a good weekend

Hi Kate, yes both my boys did their own pumpkins watched over by their dad.
Love your oldie today, great colour combo and a lovely image.
I can't get into Christmas shopping at all either, must be all the hassle at work putting me off! ;)

Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

Hi Kate
Gorgeous card with a super image. Soooo pretty.
Thank goodness you explained who you were playing with. . . . . did have all sorts of images in my head for a moment lol!
Love cats but Teallach's backside would've been getting acquainted with my size 6 at that time in the morning lol! Perhaps you could take his bells off. . . . . that's his BELLS lol!
Have a great weekend.
