New Home!

Hello Everyone, gosh but it's Baltic this morning,  it's still -3 outside and despite the heating it's not all that warm indoors either. Hope you are warmer, and well.

I'm waiting for the doctor to phone and I'll find out the results of my blood test taken  four weeks ago, yes this is the first appointment I could get with this particular doctor and a phone appointment to boot. Hopefully, there will be some insight to what is causing the stomach issues. 

So I thought I would post this little card made for my lovely friend Karen as she has just moved house,
Now, unfortunately, she hasn't moved to an Italian villa, much as she would like....wouldn't we all lol. Some of you might recognise this Micheal Powell image that Docrafts had out a few years back. I bought a few of them as I really love his art work. The sentiment is from a freebie from a crafting magazine.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my last card, very much appreciated.

Early start for me tomorrow as I'm travelling down to Glasgow to meet up with my lovely friend Rita...some of you might know of her.  I am so looking forward to catching up with her. Her beloved husband Andrew passed away in September, not long after they celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary, it's such a sad time for her and her family, so it will be good to see how she is.

Alistair was down in Glasgow yesterday, meeting up with his school chum and spent the day in the Kelvin Grove Museum and had a smashing day talking about the "old days". Willie is a mountaineer too, and they both began there adventure in the hills from the age of 11 and have had a love affair with them ever since.  

Obviously the doctor is running late as the appointment was for 10 o'clock, anyway, that's me for now, have a lovely day whatever your up to, but keep cosy,

I bought a set of these Italin Villa stamps too and have never colored them up. How bad is that! I love the card you have created with yours. Hope you get good blood test results. The Doc has been meeting up with an old work collegue so I had the house to myself and that wretched elf. Hugs Mrs A.
