 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 🤨. Just dreading the leccy bill now 😥

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 💖

Great use of colour Kate, the purples really pop rom the blues.

Sorry about the boiler, lets hope it doesn't snow for you, although sounds like you do have heat, probably too much at times.

Hi Kate,
sorry to hear about your heating unit.
I have seen a little electric heating unit on You Tube adds that is very inexpensive to use and heats up a room in about a few minutes.
Maybe one of those might help with the cost till your new one is repalced.
Love your wonderful journal page and the colours used are amazing.
Those jelly fish are so pretty but deadly arn't they.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

What a wonderful page Kate, the jellyfish looks like it's real in the blue busy ocean. It's gorgeous. As for the heater? Why do these things go when they are needed most? Really chilly here, I expect it's even colder up there with you. Take care. Keep warm somehow. x

So sorry for your heater, it seems to have chosen the most wrong time to break! Finger crossed for a speedy electricians intervention!
Your jellyfish underwater is awesome, such amazing colouring!

This is gorgeous Kate, and I just love that wonderful purple jellyfish and fish, and the added blue foliage and brilliant blue water looks very inviting. Sorry you have had trouble with a heater and have bought a new one..pity you have to wait that long to get it wired up. x
