Just a Note!

Hello Everyone, hoping you are all having a lovely Sunday and are feeling tip top, but if not I hope you will feel better soon.

We went for a walk in Culloden Woods this morning and met Milo and Damian, these woods are a favourite walk for Milo as he gets off the leash and I have to say he was very well behaved,mind you Damian is very firm with him, and distracts him when passing people especially children in order that he doesn't run and jump on them. He is such a friendly pup, but getting big and strong and the last thing wanted is that he frightens people.

Anyway we had a lovely walks, I was trying to make up for an non day yesterday  where I was so tired and out of sorts I ended up having to go to bed in the afternoon, no like me at all, especially as we had a lovely morning in Nairn and a bit of lunch, back home and I felt awful.  I'm okay today thankfully.

A little simple and quick card to share today;
Beautiful daisy stamp from the fabulous John Lockwood, which I embossed in silver Wow  powder. Added a little pink colour and green with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils.
Sentiment is from CB  McIntosh sentiment set.
It's a tiny card made for a friend who knits the most wonderful bags, and I bought one for Dale's daughter Amanda's 40th birthday,  in the most wonderful purple colour, which by luck is her favourite colour. She adored the bag, so I thought I'd give Sheena the feedback, we Crafters always like to hear that our creations are well received. 

Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my last card.
Oh and Sandy asked to see photo of our Edinburgh jazz trip, didn't have the camera with us I'm afraid and didn't think to use my phone, so sorry about that Sandy. 

That's all for now, take care and see you soon,

Hi Kate, loving your embossed daisy card, with the McIntosh sentiment. Very pretty.
Your walk sounds lovely. I was a bit like that yesterday so spent most of the day sat on my bum crocheting. It's just got to be done now and again!

Take care and happy crafting,

Hugs Erika. x

Glad to hear that you are feeling better today.
Your card is so pretty. I like the idea of the silver embossing powder. I don't remember to reach for my powders often enough!

Beautiful card Kate. I love that daisy image and it works so well as a card front. Sounds like you had a lovely walk, and it's so nice that your cat is trained enough that you can take off the leash! hugs :)

Cara said...

A beautiful CAS card, just perfect to pass on your thanks. Sorry to hear that you weren't too good the other day. I'm glad to hear that you were able to enjoy your walk though. I'd love to have a dog, but Hubby used to breed and race whippets and would want one from the bloodline he used to breed from if we had one. Perhaps not the best idea whilst I have bunnies! Cara x
