Mad About Video Games!

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Visitors of course.  I hope you are all well, but sending kind thoughts and hugs to those who are not so good.

It's been a lovely day here, frosty first thing in the morning and clear and crisp this afternoon, the air feels nice and fresh.  Alistair is away down to the Cairngorms for a walk, so I took the opportunity to get some crafting done, I'm a bit behind with cards that are needed soon.

I've been spending so much time trying to fix problems with the PC,  some strange things happening to it, adverts kept popping up, even although I have a blocker on, then my home paged changed to something I've never heard of.  It just all takes time to suss out where to go into to fix it, but I've managed something.  I really need to go on a course for when things go wrong.

Anyway here is my card for today;
The image is a precoloured one from TPS and I know Kerr loves playing these sorts of games.
Red Bazzil card
LC Sentiments
Twine and buttons from my stash.

I can hardly believe Kerr is 11 next week, he is growing up so fast, he is my friend Dale's Grandson, and he is a terrific little guy.  I think he will like it.

Thank you all so much for the very kind comments on the fab cards/calenders made by my little group, they will be chuffed to bits when I tell them.

I'm off to Glasgow with Alistair tomorrow, and early start for the bus.  I think he wants to go some exhibition at the Art Galleries, me... well John Lewis of course.   It's a long day, but if the weather is good it will be fine.
Enjoy the rest of your day,

Hi Kate, great card today. I think this one would suit Sébastien. He is an avid video game player. I am having all sorts of things going wrong with my blog. I'm useful but John is great, and even he can't sort it out. The Followers have disappeared of mine and everybody else's blogs and no matter what we do I can't get them back. So annoying. Checked all teh trackers and cookies etc but no joy. Aghh! You seem to have had the same day we had yesterday but today it's rained hard and been pretty miserable. Hugs Christine xx
