Sarah Kay, Friday Oldie!

Hello Everyone, I hope everyone is keeping well and warm as we seem to have another cold snap.

Yesterday was so dismal  with sleety showers, it made me want to stay wrapped up under the duvet. It's brighter today, but still cold.

Alistair is off to the Kintail mountains with his friend Bill so I have had the day to myself and I've watched two episodes of Outlander. Some of you may have read the Diana Gabaldon books as I did quite a few years ago and couldn't put them down. I was even lucky enough to hear her have a reading of one of her books here in Inverness, and she made the story so interesting I could have sat for hours listening to her.

The story is essentially a love story, but not the Mills and Boon kind, and at the start of the first book the story takes place in Inverness, and Culloden Moor which is just up the road form my home.  Anyway, somebody made the books into a TV series  which I could only get on Amazon Prime. I hummed and hawed for about a year, but finally gave in, and it is brilliant.... in my opinion. But you need a strong stomach, the fighting scenes are very gory and the intimated scenes between Jamie and Claire are........well, not Mills and Boon, nor even Barbara Cartland.  So for fans of these books, the drama is worth the watching, and the other good thing is that the main characters are well know Scottish actors, so there is none of the Mel Gibson dodgy accent as in Braveheart.

Anyway on to my Friday Oldie, it's a Sarah Kay image, I had some decoupage sheets, still got them somewhere, I think this was a commissioned card. Its all rather café latte colours with a splash of pink. Pretty.

Scheduling this as I won't have time to do it tomorrow, so I hope it works OK.

Friday Oldie all began with Erika, over at Snappy Crafts and it's just a bit of fun to share something handmade form your earlier work. It's good to look back and see how you've changed what you do or improved on what you make. There are quite a few of us join in with Erika so why not give it a go.

Thank you all so much for commenting on my last card, much appreciated, I hope you like this one too,
Take care and see you soon,

I started reading that series but got bored with them after the first few as they seemed rather samey. Cute card, love SK.

Enjoy the peace and quiet Kate, well jealous that you are watching Outlander on Amazon prime, I'm not allowed. I think I am on book 8 at the moment, I have loved the whole set and can't wait to see the TV series. Gutted I missed her visit to Inverness too.
You card is beautiful today, love the soft colour palette and the Sarah Kay image, too cute by far. The heart doily is stunning too.
Thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie today.

Have a super weekend. Hugs Erika. x

Hi Kate
I could have sworn I'd commented on this cutie but Blogger does seem to be messing again.
I certainly remember reading about the racy programmes you're watching, you raunchy devil you! No wonder its on some pay per view thingy lol!
Hope Alistair had fun. My friends hubby is currently up Ben Nevis......that sounds rude but you know what I mean lol!
