For a Special Person!

Hello Everyone, an early start for us today as we are expecting our new bed between 7 and 1 o'clock, so up at 6.30 to get organised and the old bed out, and you know that thing when you're trying to do things quietly but in actual fact make even more noise, it just never fails. Anyway, old bed outside and waiting to be dealt with by dear not for him paying an extra £60 to get the delivery men to take it away, I'm staying out of it lol. It will be Sod's Law that it arrives at 12.59, oh well.

How are you all doing, well I hope and that your week is going well.
I'm having a real break from the dogs these days, this week it's Damian who is on holiday, and has for once turned is phone off so that no one from his work can get in touch, he's learning at long last that he is entitled to have a peaceful holiday, instead of trying to deal with things, that others feel they can't do.
So, I went out for a lovely walk with them yesterday to some new woods.. well new to me, although the dogs knew it very well and, we had great fun with their new ball, I felt I had had a good workout.
It's little Rowan's birthday today, she's now a big girl at 1 year old.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my little Robin plaque, you are so very kind, and it's always appreciated.

I've got a birthday card today to show;
This is for Kerr who is my friend Dale's Grandson, he will be 14 tomorrow...where have the years gone??
Using an Imagination Crafts stencil I inked through with Oxides and matched some lovely Dovecraft paper and some grey card. Chocolate Baroque sentiments, twine and a key.
Kerr gave me for my birthday a pack of Dovecraft papers and embellishments, he also gave me the keys, but like them so much he wished he had kept them, so I told him that I would include a key for his birthday.  I have to say that the papers are gorgeous and I love the colours, so I hope he does too.
Kerr is far too busy to look at my blog so I feel safe in putting it on ahead of his birthday.

Right off to get some breakfast now, I think porridge is needed today, it's quite cold and dull, need some inner warmth. Have a good day whatever you are doing and see you soon, take care,

Such a clever combination of patterns Kate, doesn't it work beautifully and loving the varying hues of green. Hope the new bed is comfy, we changed ours a few months back and only then did we realise the change was well overdue.

What a beautiful card Kate! I just love the colours, very cool and dreamy! The stripes and spots work so well together, and that sentiment is just lovley!! Stunning!

I sure wish Damian could teach that lesson to my hubby. 10pm on a Saturday night or 8am on a Sunday morning and his phone is ringing... I'm constantly telling him they can manage without him until Monday morning, but he seems to think differently. Men! lol. hugs :)

Anne said...

This is great Kate, what a lovely choice of colours

I love walking through the woods with Manny, especially in Autumn when the wind is blowing, I could stay there all day

Hope you didn't have to wait too long for your new bed!
