Blue Lake!

Good Morning....Just, to You All, and I hope you are well and have enjoyed your weekend. Weather wise it was a dreich wet one, but that seems to be usual for bonfire night up here. 
We had a lovely weekend, and an enjoyable birthday meal with Damian and Moreen for Alistair's birthday at our favourite Indian restaurant. Thank you all so much for your lovely birthday and anniversary wishes. 
Here is the card I gave Alistair;
This was my first attempt at using Stampscapes stamps, I had bought some to make a card for a friend, but hadn't considered this good enough, I haven't got the sky inked well, looks like there are flags flying in it. However, when I showed it to Alistair he loved it, so I kept it for his birthday as like his friend, they both canoe. He was thrilled to bits with it.

Well, that's all our birthdays done for this year, I'll be starting to think about Damian's in January and them Moreen's for February. Time is just going by so quickly, it will be around before I know it.

Thank you all so much for the kind comments you made about my last card, I do appreciate your visit to my blog, it all takes time, but  they are lovely to read.

Take care of yourselves and see you soon,

Kate, this is a lovely scene you created. The colors are wonderful and the scene so calming. I have been lucky enough to take classes with Kevin, owner and artist of the stampscapes stamps three times, and he is an awesome artist, he makes magic with those stamps.
