 Hello Everyone,  hoping you are well, and enjoying life.

Loads of rain for us over the last 24 hours, and high winds.  Apparently snow is forecast for sometime tomorrow. 

Unfortunately our heater is not playing ball, again,  so it's got  to be replaced.  It's belting out heat,  even when on standby.  Had the electrician out twice and it seems it would be just as expensive to get parts sent from Germany,  plus the wait,  so a new one was bought today.  However, getting a slot with the electrician will take over a week,  they're awfully busy ๐Ÿคจ. Just dreading the leccy bill now ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Anyhoo, here's my latest journal page 

This is Jandlar from Lavinia Stamps,  with sea foliage and little shoals of fish Elements ink,  Wink of Stella and sticker sentiments. 

Thank you for your lovely comment on my last card. 

That's all from me for now,  take care 

Love and Hugs, Kate ๐Ÿ’–

Faerie Magic!

Hello Everyone,  I hope you are all well and that life is being kind to you. 

I'm back here sooner than I thought I would be,  and this time with a card 

Here's Eden meeting her little friend Rory and showing him some  Faerie Magic, Rory is just too little yet to do magic, but he likes to watch, whilst Eden's dragon friend is flying home for the evening.  All products used are from Lavinia Stamps. 

That's me for now, thank you very much for your lovely comments on my previous post.  Take care of yourselves, 

Hugs Kate x x

Wrap up Well!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, I hope all's well with you, and that life is being kind. We are living quietly here, just waiting for Spring to arrive. The lovely little Spring flowers are up ad about but, being battered with wind and rain.

As usual just a quick post to show a coloured page done way last year,

This page was from Rita Berman's Winter Walk, and now I have no recollection of which pencils I would have used. I've put some stencil work in the background.

Well that's all  from me just now, take care of yourselves,

Valentine Card!

 Hello Folks, I hope you are well, and not having such a miserable day of rain that we are having, and it is so dark. One of these sorts of days that chill to the bone.

Anyway, just popping in with a quick post of a Valentine card, meant to do it yesterday, but didn't get round to it,

 Tilly and Tango here with a lovely rose and some lovely steampunk hearts, all from Lavinia Stamps. A little stencilling in the background, gel pen and gold Stickles. This was Alistair's card.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my previous post, always so kind with your comments.

That's me for now, take care and see you soon,

Evening Sail!

 Hello there folks, been a while since I last posted, or indeed commented, sorry about that, so I hope all's well with you. I've not been feeling too well, nothing I can put my finger on or give a name to, but just not feeling tip top with everything being an effort, maybe an age thing, perhaps you know what I mean. Anyway, I'm here today with another calendar page from my Lavinia Stamps  calendar coloured up, here is  Evening Sail

Mr. and Mrs. Hare like to go for an evening sail when the weather is fine, they like a bit of time to themselves away form the family, so a nice leisurely sail along the river side to relax  is just the thing. A little fish who knows them pops up to say hi, and Bronwyn the owl is also coming to say hello.

I've used all Lavinia stamps and Elements and Versafine Clair inks. Lavinia sentiment stickers, gel pen and Stickles.

So another page done, only another six to go  ๐Ÿ˜„

I'm going to a cake and concert this afternoon at the Cathedral. with Musick Fyne. A group of musicians who specialise in  medieval music with like instruments, It's just lovely and very relaxing.

It's a much better day weather wise, so no battling through rain and wind, makes a change.

Anyway, that's me for now, hoping to get around to visit some you guys and see what you've been up to, take care,

Visiting Friends!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, Are you all keeping well? I do hope so and that life is good for you.

Such a rollercoaster of weather we are having,  temps up, but awfully windy, lovely sunshine today. The Met office keeps saying we are due for snow and low temps soon. Hope not. I'm watching my little bulbs shooting through in my pots, and really surprised that the cold has not killed them off before now. I have one lone snowdrop out in the back garden.  Anyway, it is still early.

I have another coloured up page in my Lavinia calendar, now it's it November page, I was going to do the page for May, but somehow got side tracked  to November's page,

Here is Nia and Pippin visiting fairy friends and they have stopped for the night in a little forest clearing. Various Lavinia stamped used, with Elements ink, gel pen  silver foil and stickles. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.

Thank you for the lovely comments you left on my last card, you are all so very kind.

Well that's me for now, I hope you have some good plans for the weekend, take care and see you soon.
