Hello Everyone, are you fine and dandy? I do hope so, but if your not, sending through some positive thoughts in the hope you will feel better soon.
Thank you so much for your comments on my last card, and sorry about the long post, somehow I didn't quite realise just how long it was, so if you did read it, thanks for that too.

I've had a morning at home trying to catch up with bits and pieces, it's amazing that my few days away have knocked me to pot, anyhow I had Alistair out of the way as he took off this morning at 5am to go to the Cairngrorms, there was a particular route he wanted to climb. As I was awake, he can't do quiet, even although he tries, I just got going with my chores. I'll crash out later, anyhow he is back now, and informing me that he was walking through mist and snow and it was bitterly cold when he stopped to have his bite to eat. I guess that Winter is now taking hold. Anyway a nice bowl of homemade soup, a hot shower and he's as right as rain, or mist and snow.

I have a share today that is a variation on a theme;
 A lovely MB die, a little paper piecing with the green card and some green Sakura sparkly pen, glitter. tiny red gems, sequins and a free sentiment stamp
This one has been cut out in green card, and I've used the green pen again, the ribbon is covering up a mistook, glitter and gems
 White with a pop of red on the berries and some crystal gems and glitter.
Just plain and simple , but quite effective I thought.

That's me for now folks, enjoy your day whatever you're doing, take care,

So glad you had a good time at the show Kate and I think you were quite restrained with your purchases..I love imagination crafts have loads of their stencils and paints trouble is there are just not enough hours in the day are there....

Beautiful Christmas cards Kate -- I like the white one the best!
If you think you have gone to pot - you should see me and my house. I have so much to do that I just want to sit down and have a nice cold pint!
I really think I would enjoy living in Scotland - would need you for a translator though. And I would need a nice warm place to live!!!!
See you later kid!

Beautiful cards Kate. Love this die, it is surprising how cards can look so different by just changing the colour of the card, think I like the green one best. Pleased to hear Alistair got back safe and sound.
Love and Hugs Jennifer xx,

Hi Kate, I love the die. They are three really beautiful cards and a lovely selection of colours too. I actually can't choose a favourite. Barbxx

Erika said...

Hi Kate, your hubby must be crazy to get up so early to go climbing. I think we have the better idea, staying warm and crafting!
A lovely selection of candle cards, I think the first one is my favourite, love that colour combo the best.

Happy crafting, hugs Erika. x

Super Christmas cards Kate, they are all fabulous but I especially like the white version - it is so elegant.
We had our first frost down south this morning - winter has finally arrived.

These are brilliant cards. Beautiful detail but great for batch makes. What a useful die.
