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.

It's a beautifully coloured page Kate. Bulbs though and Snowdrops out here as well, last year it was nearly March, the temps make everything think it's Spring.

I have one clump of snowdrops up in the font garden which always amazes me as I never planted any in the first place but thy are always the ones that come out in flower before anything else does. What a super November page you have coloured and who says we have to do everything in order. Hugs Mrs A.

Such a clever and beautiful page Kate. Very impressive to say the least. As for weather, my son used a word this week that described it well. Bleak! Dark low misty clouds. I think you would say dreich? Not sure of the spelling, but it could be right? I think you know what I mean anyway?

ooooh, Kate! this is one of my all-time favorite creations using Lavinia stamps! Every centimeter is pure magic. Creature "cooperation" is what it reminds me of - like what can happen when we all work together for good! Your shading, color choices, and scene are so fun and sweet! Yes, weather is yo-yoing here, too. Wishing you a beautiful February! hugs, de

How beautiful and so full of interest Kate and love the colours you have used especially the purple tones for the night sky with the moon seen through the trees and the bit of light around the hanging lamps..perfect. x
