Puffin Love!

 Hello Everyone, is your weather as cold as ours? -7 degrees this morning when I let Teallach out...he wasn't out for long lol.  We have had some wee flurries of snow too, but at our level not too much, the mountains are are plastered though and look fabulous. 

It's such a pity that for once the ski fields here in Scotland  have wonderful snow, but due to lockdown, obviously closed, it's an industry that have been struggling for quite a while.

So I got my jab yesterday, in and out in minutes and all's well, my next dose is in April. The nurse who delivered the jab said that our surgery is fairly flying through  the vaccinations, so that's good.

My card today  is my Valentine card for Alistair;

I  saw this wonderful digital image  on Rachel Vass Etsy Shop and fell in love with it. Puffins are one of my favourite little birds, and they bring back memories of visiting an  Island where there were loads of the wee birds, I was able to sit down beside some of them, they are very curious little creatures, not at all afraid of us big humans. Anyway, I've coloured the image with Prismacolour pencils and added some sparkle.  added a drawing of a sun and added some cloud dies. The sentiment is part of the stamp set.

I've used Puffin colours for the background card and some First Edition papers. Found some old heart dies and job done.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments you leave, I do appreciate them and a warm welcome to my new follower, I hope you will pop in often. You don't seem to have a blog though so I can't return the visit.

That's me for now, keep yourselves safe, and see you soon,

What a fun card and in bright and sunny colours Kate. Weather is much the same here, although of course being so flat in the Fens no hills or mountains, the forecast -9 tonight.

Love your card, I like puffins but never seen one in real life, I hope he loves his card.
My hubby does not want a card, the last few years I have given him either a tatted heart or a die cut one but as I know he won’t be doing anything for me, he’s going without.

We don’t have snow just a few snow flurries every so often nothing that will make it turn white. It’s very cold with frosts at night, not as cold as you, At least that east wind has dropped.
What a pity that you have good snow for skiing and they can’t take advantage if it. I am sure it would have been good for the industry as they do get years very little snow.
Stay safe and warm

What a wonderful Valentine's card Kate. I adore
the image, such fun and I love the bright, cheery
colours you have chosen. I'm sure Alistair will
just love it too. What an amazing experience, to
be able to sit so close to the birds without them
flying off lol! and their trust in you...a lovely
feeling. Glad you've had your jab.
Take care and stay safe Kate.
Hugs Jennifer xx.

I LOVE puffins Kate, I've never seen them but your card is so real and beautiful Alistair just HAS to love it. Good to hear that you've had your jab and that many are taking it up. -7? Nope we don't have that just down to -3 in the night. We don't have snow either. Keep warm and safe

This beautifully coloured puffin couple are so cute, him with his bowler hat and her in her colourful jumper, and the background scene with the brightly shining sparkly sun looks great Kate and love the added puffy clouds and hearts too. x
