No Prob-llama!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, how are you all, doing well I hope and coping with this further spike in the virus. It seems it's not going away anytime soon. I'm hoping that the Highlands are going to be in tier 1, we will hear tomorrow whats what. If indeed we go down to tier 1 it will mean that we can visit Moreen and Damian in their home and vice versa, I do miss the doggies, and I don't see Moreen that much, Damian pops over for a doorstep visit which is great, I'm looking forward to the day when I can give him a hug, but I know I'm not alone in that feeling.

We had a lovely walk along Rosemarkie beach this morning and ended with a hot chocolate and shared a tasty fruit scone with butter and jam.....we know how to live!!, we sat outside at the eatery and looked at the sea, mind you it was pretty chilly, temp was 6 degrees, we were hardy though lol.

So on to my card;


 I was kinda stumped as to what to do for my friends Grandson this year, he will be 17 on his birthday, and I'm not all that sure what he is into these days, anyhoo, i remembered these fabulous stamps from an edition of Creative Stamping the other year and decided to use this super llama image.

I've created the background with DI and a cloud stencil and gave it a splatter with water, then as you can see added the leaves and grasses around the edges. The llama I stamped with two shades of brown  and fussy cut him out and attached with foam tape to raise him a bit. Mounted on to rose gold mirror card and job done. It's turned out quite well I think, I hope he likes it.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on mt last cards and a warm welcome to Lynne who is my latest Follower, unfortunately, Lynne commented on my last post and I accidently deleted it, I was using my phone and got a bit confused.com, so sorry Lynn, but I did manage to read it before I deleted it. Does anyone else find they are more confused by things these days, for example I never know what day of the week it is without having to lift my diary, is it an aged thing or a covid one???

That's all from me just now, I hope your week is going well, keep safe and see you soon,

Your morning sounded absolutely perfect Kate. Awwww! Wonderful card. The llama is adorable. Beautiful background. What a great sentiment. I use the bin day to know what day it otherwise I haven't got a clue. The only thing is it gets confusing because the bins go out Tuesday night. So then I think Wednesday is thursday. Friday comes and I feel like I've lost a day! LOL! Take care, sending hugs, Flo xx

Your walk sounds lovely Kate and you definitely live the good life, a scone AND jam cor! I Love your card, perfect for a late teen, he'll love it, a beautiful stamp as is the stamped frame and gorgeous background. I'm with Flo above with knowing the days from the bin men! It's a Covid thing I'm sure, couldn't be old age could it, God forbid.
Keep safe

ohhh so cute love your card - Have looked at your blog, I still think you do great things and stop by occasionally. I have not had time to make cards as I have actually been working on a book which has now been published.

Mac Mable said...

I used to think that no knowing what day it is was an age thing but now I think it's definitely a Covid thing....You are not alone Kate x.
I hope you go down to tier 1 Kate and yes I miss hugs too x.
Yay ....to the scone and hot chocolate and yes we sure are hardy up here x.
What a fun Llama card and a clever idea for a 17 year old lad. The sentiment will make him chuckle too x.

Great to get out for a walk and then a hot chocolate and piece of jam scone sounds just perfect Kate. This card is perfect with the lovely llama and the sentiment is such fun too. I love the foliage framing the scene and the cloud stencil to give some interest to the sky too. A brilliant card for your friend's grandson. x
