Dancing in the Rain!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well, and for those who are not, here's hoping that you will feel better soon. 
Mind you the weather isn't going to cheer up anyone, rain and more rain, when oh when will Summer arrive.  Thank goodness for crafting!!

I got quite a bit of knitting done last night but I must have been sitting in a poor position as I felt as if I'd twisted myself. I've got a sweater on the pins for myself, hoping to get it finished for our holiday on September.  It's been ages since I had a big project on the go, and now I know why.  I've even got yarn to do Alistair a sweater, must have had a brainstorm at some point. Good job he's not in a hurry for it.!

I've got a card created  using Inkylicious stamps. I just love this image and had seen it on many people's cards in blogland.
Unfortunately, once again my photo is not showing up the colours well, they are brighter in reality, shades of blue, lavender are used and added with Ink Dusters.  I found an old card in my box that had been embossed with a SP folder, the card is a cream pearlesence card, again not showing up.  
I didn't add any embellishments, I didn't want to take away from the image.

Thanks to all who have visited me and left lovely comments, you are kind to take time to do this and I really appreciate it.

Off to the craft room now, the footy is on again no doubt hubby will watch some of it.
I'm saturated with the news of today, it's all been awful, albeit with two Oscars, one a wonderful performance by the former PM and the other escaping robust justice by being given a ridiculous prison sentence for murder. Here in Scotland the sentencing of two women for the torture and murder of a child.  Honestly, what a state of affairs!

I'll leave  you with a couple of photos of Teallach, like crafting he keeps me sane. He is awfully difficult to photograph, won't stay in place long enough.

Anyway, enjoy your evening and see you soon,

Beautiful card Kate. I don't know how you have time to knit and make cards. Making a card takes me forever. Great photos.

Hi Kate
Wow! Beautiful! I thought these were stamps by Ryn as I forgot Inkylicious did them now too. Lovely effect.

This is gorgeous Kate. Nice pics too, xxxx

Kate the sentiment on your card is one of my all time favourites. When the kids were young both used to dance in the rain and get absolutely soaked. I wish I'd taken photographs at the time. Your ink shading on your card is beautiful too.
Good luck with the knitting, still doing my crochet hexagons here, I think I'll be at it forever too. I think I may run out of wool before I finish too.

Great cat pics too.

Hugs Erika. x

A fabulous card Kate, a lovely silhouette image and brilliant sentiment.
We've been lucky down south - the weather has been lovely the past couple of days, I'm sure it won't last though!

A beautiful project, gorgeous colours and lovely stamp Kate, it does not need anything else on it as it is beautiful as is.xx {aNNie}

Wow Kate, gorgeous card! Love the soft colours in the background and how perfect for the weather you've been having. Just the opposite here, they've declared us being in a drought. No watering the lawns or washing the cars, etc etc. It's pretty bad. Let's switch eh? lol. hugs and happy weekend :)

I tell you Kate - the news everywhere I look seems to be on the very bleak side. So I escape into Blog Land!
You card is delightful. It reminds me of my favorite movie "Singing in the Rain".
My daughter and her four kids are here plus on extra teenager. Kind of tight when it comes to sleeping arrangements but everyone is doing well and seems to be having a good time. The two older teenage girls (16) have taken over the craft room - they live in there! I turn them loose and let them use whatever they please.
By for now!

I love both of these stamp sets Kate but I can't begin to tell you how many times I've stamped the rain drops upside down. I always start now by stamping on copy paper first :) I love your gentle blending of colours and the dark colour that you've used around the edges to draw the eye in, it's a lovely card. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

I love your blending on this card and the crispness of the black against it. Cara x
