Going to Seed!

Hello Everyone,  hope all is well with you.

What a glorious day today weather wise, sunshine all the way, coldish but lovely. Alistair and his friend Derek climbed two mountains in Kintail, he can hardly move now.

I had a day off from the pups, have to say I was pleased, I was tired and in a bit of pain, and the worst of that is that I can't quite say where the pain is, other than in my right side, so it's been painkillers today and doing things slowly.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last card, and tips about Pinterest.  I fiddled away with it today and have the save it button back, had to do it through Firefox as that's my browser, so at least I can pin and save, but the boards on Pinterest that I'd been saving to have disappeared, but do you know what..... I don't care, life is too short to spend any more time on it.

My card today uses a lovely Crafty Individual image which I've heat embossed in black on to CC Kraft card with is a little lighter than the normal kraft card. added a few black flowery sequins and that's that. It was a simple card, but I think very effective and of course Crafty Individual images are so lovely.

I'm keeping this a shortish post tonight, as I'm going back to my knitting which I had to take back because of glaring mistakes, so I'll finish up here and see you soon, take care,
