Winter Village for Oldie Friday!

Hello Everyone, hope you are all well, but if not here is a Hug that you feel better soon.

Not too bad weather over the last couple of days here, but getting colder, but I suppose that it is the end of November. Where has the year gone?????????

Well I've been playing with my new Xcut machine and it is super, and today saw the delivery of a set of SB Decorative Circles, the large ones, I've wanted them for ages.  My Christmas to myself.  As I was working late I'm not going to be able to have a play yet, but I just keep looking at them and seeing all sorts of cards.

Another fab thing to happen is that I've won the Challenge at Chocolate Baroque, I'm so delighted as I don't enter many challenges now because I get left with so many cards that I can't really use, but I do like using the CB stamps so that is really the only challenge I enter. I've chosen some gorgeous stamps for my prize which I will show when inked up.

I'm scheduling this card for tomorrow, Friday and it's my Oldie for Friday;
Here I've used an image by Micheal Powell, I can't remember what else I used, but I would guess It was coloured with Promarkers. It's all a couple of years old.

Here is a photo of something a bit more recent;
Our lovely boy, he is just wonderful, and it feels like he's been with us for ages, not just a few weeks.

That is all from me tonight, just before I go I just want to thank everyone who leaves lovely comments, I very much appreciated your time in visiting my blog.
See you soon

Hi Kate
Terrific card. I love Michael Powell images. I have a wonderful MP cross stitch of Venice my friend did for me.
Teallach is a handsome boy. Hopefully he isn't keeping you awake playing with his balls still (stop it! Lol!)
Have a great weekend.

Hi Kate

I love winter scene Christmas cards - this one is gorgeous and I bet it was great to colour and glitter up too.

Hope all is good with you and your Christmas plans are coming together nicely.

Love Jules xx

MaryH said...

Hi Kate...Big Congratulations on winning at CB. Their stamps are so gorgeous. I've got a few - once I found a USA place to order. Sad to say, they are a NBUS and since they are Christmas themed, I should use them this season! I'm so glad you won in the challenge, and can't wait to see what you share. Glad you are enjoying your new machine and learning all about how to use it. Your new baby is pretty too. (I'm allergic to cats now though!) He looks very much at home and not so shy anymore. See ya tomorrow at CCC. TFS & Hugs
