Puss IN Boot

Good Morning Fellow Blogger,  I hope you have all had a good night and are feeling recharged, refreshed and raring to go.  I'm not yet, another poor sleep but at least it's my day off so I can go at my own pace.

I would like to welcome my new blog follower Rita, it's lovely to have you on board, and yet another new inspired blog for me to visit..I was delighted when I noticed I had a new follower, I have now 15 but, that includes me, somehow I clicked a button and ended up following myself, how daft is that.

Thanks to all who have left comments on my last post, and especially for the well wishes. It really does mean so much.

My card for today is using a lovely little stamp from LOTV that I'd forgotten I had,
The sentiment is also from LOTV. i've stamped the image on to card die cut using  an Xcut die, co-ordination card, coloured with Promarkers, Memory box corner die, ribbon and gems from my stash.  Boot polished with Glossy Accents.

This card is not for anyone in particular at the moment, however I'm entering it into 
145 Challenge "Anything Goes"

I hope to get some more cards made today as I've treated myself to some lovely new stamps from Just Inklined.

Have a lovely day everyone whatever your doing,

My Snowy Friend

Good Evening Blog Friends I hope you have all been well.  I have been so tired over the last few days, I've not been doing much except working, so I've given posting on my blog a miss.  I have though attempted to keep up with what you all have been making. Glad I managed that because there are some beautiful card been shown.
Thank you too for everyone who took time to visit and leave a comment it's very much appreciated.

Since the weekend I have been exhausted, I think the weeks of very little sleep has finally caught up with me and I know that I'm in trouble when I begin to feel weepy and concerns seem insurmountable and not a little stressed, but I have only another day to work and then off for a couple of days.  So I have not managed to get many cards made.  I was up very early this morning and started to put a card together with a stamped image that I had coloured a couple of weeks ago and finished it earlier this evening, here it is;
It's a lovely Sugar Nellie stamp called Flakie, coloured with watercolour pencils.  Iv'e stamped on to a Spellbinders heirloom ornament die.  papermania background papers, I think they are from the Boofle selection, blue glitter card, Frosty Forms dies, XCut star dies and Spellbinders Snowflake dies. LOTV sentiment and stickles sparkle.
I think its such a cute little image,  I hope you like it.

I'm begining to feel it's time for bed, I keep making spelling mistakes, so I'll say Good Night and hope you all have one.

In To The Wind

Good Evening Everyone, I hope you have had a good weekend, it goes to quickly!, thanks to everyone who were kind enough to visit my blog and leave lovely comments, it's great to read them. I've spent some time catching up with what you've been doing and what lovely projects there are. It's great to be able to visit your blogs and learn new things, see what is being used and how to use them, finding new crafting outlets, and of course building wishlists.

Our concert was a great success last night, probably three quarters of Eden Court filled, it hold 800, so that was good.  The adrenalin buzz when the safety curtain rummbles up is just fantastic. In all my years with the Choral I've still not lost that feeling. We sang well, I managed not to make any mistakes like coming in at the wrong bit, feeling a bit ambitious when trying to hit a very high note, missing it and screetching.  There were some very high notes in the Mendelssohn, completely off the staffe.  The orchestra and soloists were marvellous.  Oh but I was exahusted by the end of it, and today have had a fairly quiet day.

We got a text from our friend to say that his son has had his first skingraft op and that it seems to be taking well.  What a relief for them all that they have been able to start so soon and that there is somewhere for the surgeons to graft from.  it was either the chest or the head and the lad chose his head as he felt that his hair would grow back in.  Bless him, he's really fighting through it.  A very breave young man.

I don't have a new card tonight, but I found one I made way back in the earlier part of the year, here it is'
It's from Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kincade Decoupage kit.  I found some purpley blue pearlesence paper for the background and vanilla card that matched parts of the sky to mount the image on to. Glossy Accents on the water whre the ship makes waves, and I think the sentiment is a Hunkydory one.
I was rather pleased  with it even although I had to cut out all the decoupage pieces, and it make a great card for my brother-in-law.

I'm off to do a wee bit of knitting now, so I'll say good night,
Kate x

Happy Christmas To You

Good Evening Everyone, and I hope wherever you are that you haven't encountered this awful weather and that you and yours are safe and dry at home.

We have had a blustery day here, not too much rain thankfully.
Thank you everyone for all your lovely comments on yesterdays blog, I love to get them. A thank you also for Wendy and Annette you have given me information on how to do linky things.  We'll see if I can indeed manage to follow their very clear instructions.  I'm not the best at IT and I think its the language that beats me.
I treated myself to a new Spellbinders lattice die today, and was really pleased that it cut quite well, sometimes they don't even although I rub it with the tumble drier sheet and use parchement paper.

So to my card of today,
I've used this little stamp before but in shades of red, this time as you can see I chose blue.

LOTV stamp,sentiment and  background papers, coloured with promarkers, Glitter card, Memory Box Snowflake corner die, Spellbinders Lattice die, gems from Papermania, and ribbon from stash.

I think she's turned out quite well.
I am entering this card  into two challenges; "Anything Goes"
and I Love Promarkers Challenge Blog "Singing and Dancing"

Thats me for tonight, still to sort out my music for tomorrow, better get cracking,
Good Night, Kate x

The Snowman

Good evening All, Hoping that everyone is well and had a good day.
I'm a wee bit late with today's post, got caught up watching the last episode of The Hatfields and McCoys.  I've been watching this faithfully for five weeks, and I'm now wondering why. The biggest lot of American codswallop if there ever was.  Two inbred clans, in th 1800s who have killed one another in a stupid feud and are now part of American folklore. There was a few really good British actors in it, oh well, maybe they needed the job.

Thank you all very much for all the lovely comments on my last post. I have no further news about our friend's son, I don't like to phone too often.
I've enjoyed looking at what you have all been creating, some fantastic projects out there, just goes to show the amount of creative talent there is.

My other friend has been entertaining us with her experience at the Baffta Awards, and who she saw and met. Quite a few funny stories as well.

I am off work now for three days, wonderful.  So tomorrow apart for a bit of housework, I need to prepare myself for the Choral Society's Concert at Eden Court Theatre on Saturday.  I only looked out my concet dress this morning, thankfully it only reqires a bit of ironing, but I will have to make sure my music is marked out. At the last rehearsal I somehow managed to loose my place and got completely confused with where I was supposed to be singing.  There is thankfully a dress rehearsal on Saturday, although that is more about the orchestra and soloists as that will be the first time we all come together.  It will be alright on the night as they say.

Anyway here is my card for tonight, my penultimate Christmas card for my chior buddy Fiona, she adores The Snowman;

I have to say I love The Snowman too and this is from a Crafter's Companion Kit and I've added snowfall acetate, a bow and some icicles stickles and a couple of liquid pearls.  I'm sure she will like it.

I'm bushed now, time for bed, so Good night all,
Kate x

Sparkle and Shine

Good Evening Everyone, I hope you are all well today.

I would like to thank everyone who left such lovely comments yesterday for our friend's son.  I spoke to him tonight and the lad has gone through another 8hr. skin graft op.  He is being very brave, but the pain is awful  as my understanding is that they can't completely sedate him, something to do with organ failure.  His mum is with him and dad is trying to keep things going at home and as far as possible keeping as the days as normal as they can be at this time. Hopefully, each day will bring an improvement.

Also thank you for the comments on my card.

Today, brought some good news; another friend's son won a Baffta, albeit a Scottish one, the other night.  It was for the best animation.  He is a fantastic artist, which clearly shows through this award.  he only left Art College a year ago. His mum and dad were there to see him get the award, and as you can imagine they are oh so chuffed.  So where will he go now I wonder!.  Isn't life strange, two families, who by  the way know each other, children at same school, and one on top of the world and the other's world has crashed about them.

My other news is that I have won the I love Promarkers Challenge "Christmas Trees".  I'm just amazed that I did as I never think that my cards never come anywhere near all the fabulous cards that are entered into these challenges.  I do however enjoy doing them if I've got the right bits in order to do them.  Here is tonights card,
I am entering this into the Sugar Bowl Challenge and the theme is Sparkle and Shine
I've used a lovely little fairy stamp from Sugar Nellie, Digi.  Coloured with a mixture of pastel and watercolour pencils. LOTV sentiment, Nitwit backing papers, co-ordinations card, Xcut dies, doily from Lakeland, Papermania gems and a sparkley gel pen. Glitter card for the stars.  The colour shades of lavender, lilac and purple. not showing up too well here.

We'll see if this one's a winner, all good fun though.

Have a good night all, Kate x

Thinking of you

Good Evening Everyone, didn't mean to be this late but got home much later than planned from work, then had to see about a meal, so here I am at the back of 9 o'clock.

Anyway I hope you are all well and that you've all had a good day.  My day has been filled with thoughts of friends whose teenage son was horribly attacked at the weekend, a horrible, evil attack which now sees him in the burns unit at St. John's in Livingston.  We are trying to get our head round it, his poor parents and sister and brothers are just in bits. It's so awful. It makes you wonder what kind of society we are living in.  I believe that the attacker was caught, that is something.

I made this card to send to the family, couldn't think what else to do and it's way too soon to go and see the lad.  I fear it's going to be a long, painful  haul in recovery;
It's just simple card, and I always think a lighthouse always symbolises hope for though in danger. I hadn't realised that I have used this image quite a few times for cards when I want to send hopeful messages. Never thought that when I bought it that It would get used in this way.

Thats me for tonight, Kate x

Bring us some Figgy Pudding

Good Morning All, early today, thought I would get this done before getting off to work. Have to say it doesn't seem all that long since I went to be, not a great night really, have listened to the rain for a good few hours during the night. Something tells me i'm going to be not fire in all cylinders today.
Anyway my card today is another LOTV creation;
LOTV die cut Papermaina boofle background paper, co-ordinations card, LOTV sentiment, music own, lots of star dust Papermainia pearls, The Ribbon Girl red ribbon.
Entering this card into Lillies Little Fairies Challenge.

Have a good day whatever your doing

Woodland Fun

Good Morning Fellow bloggers, It's a fine Sunday morning here, blue skys and sunshine but oh so cold. Thats the good news, the bad, is that I'm working later on.  How I hate it, so I thought I would do my post early rather than tonight.

Thany you for your comments on my last card, taking the time to look at my blog is really appreciated and I always love looking at what you are all doing.  I learn lots of new ways to do projects and have some wonderful inspiration.

Here is the other card I made for the order;
I've used very different colours on this one, but I think it works quite well.

LOTV stamp and sentiment, coloured with Promarkers, LOTV Kraft pad of papers, gold mirri, Spellbinders snowflakes, adorable scorable card and a Hunkydorry blank card, lots of frosting and glitter.

I really like this stamp and it was fun to colour in, as long as Caroline likes them though.

Off now to get ready for work.  Hopeing you all have a great day, whatever your doing.

Glad to be Home

Good Evening Fellow Bloggers and I hope all is well with you.

I have finished up tonight for a couple of days off and as usual I'm whacked as I've workied 2 9hour days this week. I'm a little too tired to get much crafting done.  I'm hoping to perhaps get down to it tomorrow.  I'm planning a quitet couple of days.

 I haven't a new card for you tonight, this one I made for my friend Dale's 60th earlier in the year.  She adores poppies.
I've used a Sheena Douglass Stamp and coloured with promarkers. The background paper is from a Flowersoft CD, flowers are from MCS Flower Expert CD, and bits and pieces from my bits box. Dale loved it, I hope you like it.

I'ts a good night from me,  Kate x

Princess Zelda

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well.  Thank You for all the lovely comments left on my last blog.

I've been catching up with all your creations and what lovely cards you are all making.  Wendy's milk cartons are fab too. I find looking at your blogs so inspirational.

Wilma (scottishcrafter), I've managed to put the liebster award on my side bar, and will try and award it to 5 other crafters.  So thank you once again.

This isn't going to be a long post tonight, I'm bushed, I was working late tonight, a 9hr. day and we are still short staffed. Honestly I think they are trying to finish me off. So anyway once I've done this it's off to bed.

I downloaded a Saturated Canary image, my first one and thought I would give it a go having seen quite a few made in to wonderful cards especially by ladies who are on design teams. Well, I'm not too sure about it, see what you think
I think this is maybe a bit OTT, I'm also not sure why I like these images. Anyway, this is Princess Zelda and just what she is holding in her hand I'm not too sure, but it might be a paint brush, but there again it might be a wand.  I wanted to colour in quite dramatic colours so I've chosen green and purple. Matted onto embossed green card Memory Box corner and border WO flowes and LOTV sentiment. Lots of sparkle. Oh and the base card is one from a range from Hunkydory I bought last year.

That's me then, good night all, Kate x

Monday again, but not at Work

Hello Everyone and how are you all today, well I hope.  Thank  you for the lovely comments on my last blog, I love to read them.

We had a lovely evening at our friend Sean's birthday dinner last night, wonderful food and Bunchrew house is such an impressive venue.  Really old apparently, goes back to 16th century and belonged to Mackenzie and Fraser clans.  Quite atmospheric.  Anyway, we were a small gathering only 12 including our host and Alistair and I only knew one other person, but Sean had mixed us all up at the table putting us beside people whom he thought would gel, and we did, conversation flowed and as it was a large round table we all felt connected.  Very clever of him and he had a ball, he just thought it was great having so many friends there to share is special day, I thought it was very touching.

Thank you Wilma for giving me the Leibster Award and I will forward it on, although I am not too sure how to do it and, I don't know if I know all that many people.My blog friends are all your blog friends. Nevertheless it was lovely to be thought of and I will try my best.

This is my card for today, just a simple one made for a friends Silver Wedding Anniversary, as you can see.

I've used a LOTV stamp and coloured it with promarkers, sentiment made on PC, matted and layered onto an embossed card, a bit of a flourish, though i can't remember from where and some little silk rose buds I found in a charity shop.

That's me for today, I'm off to see about dinner and then it's choir practise

Yipee it's Saturday Night!

Well hello Fellow Bloggers I hope your day has been a good one whatever youv'e been doing.  Thank you as always for the lovely comments on my last card.

I am so glad to have reached tonight, what a long week it's been and I really thought I woudn't make it, there were some days I felt quite unwell with tiredness, but I managed to keep going.  I will have a quiet day tomorrow, don't plan to do much.  We have although been invited to a friend's 60th party, which is being held in Bunhcrew House, a very posh place, tomorrow night.  I believe it's a dinner and there will be only about a dozen folk, I am delighted to be invited.  Sean is really Alistair's friend, and such a lovely guy, I will be a good night.

Talking about friends, our friend Graham made this for me, isn't it fantastic, he has been learning how to

do origami and he thought I might like his latest creation.  I can't begin to work out how he's done it.  Graham has used an OS map. I just has to put it on here for you all to see.

Now my humble creation tonight is a card I made earlier on this year,
It is a lovely stamp by Hunkydory and coloured with promarkers, embossed co-ordinations, marieanne Die flourish, papermania flower, bits and pieces from my box of tricks. It's a cute little cat, reminds me of Cuillin.

Anyway, I've been reading on your blogs that at least a couple of ladies have fantastic husbands who buy them early Christmas prezzies of computer based die cutting machines.  Fantastic for you, there will be many wonderful cards going on show soon.  I too have a gem of a hubby, he made the dinner tonight and has just washed up the dishes and pots, and that's just what I needed.

Good night, Kate x

Still Another Day to Go!

Hello Everyone, hope you are all well and have had a good day and heading into a good weekend.  My weekend won't begin until tomorrow at 5o'clock and boy am I looking forward to it, I just can''t work out why I am so tired this week, not to worry though I've almost made it and I'm looking forward to a lovely two days off.

Thank you all very much for your lovely comments on my last post, I look forward to reading them.
This is just going to be a short post from me tonight as I am going to put my feet up and enjoy my evening in to watch all the rubbish I can find on the telly, I need to sit and vegitate after the day I've had at work, did I mention I work in mental health, I sometimes fear I might become one of my own clients. Anyway here is my card for today;
I an going to enter this card into LOTV Little Fairies Challenge, All things Bright
The stamp is of course from LOTV as is the sentiment. Spellbinders embossing folder on blank card which is from Little Claire, free papers from Making Cards Magazine, co-ordinatitions card and gold mirri, pearls and ribbon from stash and coloured with Promarkers.

I think she's  awfully sweet and I  think her name is Maisie or Millie can't quite remember, so we'll see how this one does in the competition.

Have a lovely evening,  Kate x

Could do with some more sleep!!

Well here we are another day dawns, Good morning to you all, especially to Hazel, it was lovely to recieve your comments.  Thank you to everyone who left comments, it's great to read them and most appreciated.

I am incredibly tired this morning, I think my extra shift the other day is now catching up, definately not firing on all cylinders today. I've got to keep going until Saturday then I've got 2 days off.  Getting too old for this working lark.

So my card today is one I made a while ago with one of my first LOTV stamps and I thought it would suit the theme of this weeks Promarker Challenge which is PINK, here it is;
Quite simple not a lot to it, but a very pretty stamp and I enjoyed colouring it in.  It is matted and layered with bits and pieces from my stash box.
Thats, me for now, off to get some breakfast and start the working day. Enjoy your own day whatever you do,   Kate x

Another penguin Card

Good Morning Everyone, hoping you are all well today.

I didn't manage to post yesterday but did catch up with what others had been making and what lovely cards there were. Such talented folk out there.

I ended up having to work late as a colleague was off sick and it was our late  night opening so by the time I got home I was too whacked to do very much.  We are in a state of change at work and it is very challenging for everyone and there is also quite a bit of sickeness and really low moral.  Truth be told we are all exhusted, but our new area manager who doesn't come from a social care background and is really a bean counter doesn't really care.  Well that's the way of the world now,  that's my moan for today, I'll shut up and get on with it.

My card today is the same image as the other days card, little penguins but this time Iv'e made it to entre The Sugar Bowl Challenge, so paid particular mind to the layout and colour pallet,
Again not a great photo,Alistair is away with the camera and this is from my phone.

I've used; 8x8 card, papers are all from making cards (freebies), digi stamp from Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers, Co-ordination mustard and black card. Spellbinders oval shape die coloured with distressed ink, WO flowers and blue pearls, the sentiment is from the free papers too, and a little bit of glitter.
The colours chosen are mustard, blue, black and vanilla, trying  to keep to the stated colour pallet with what i already had in my promarker selection and papers.
I hope this does.  I found doing this card quite fun trying to match everything, but that's what it's all about isn't it, Fun.
Thank You  everybody who commented on my last post I really do love reading them.  Have a good day whatever your doing and will catch up with you later,
Kate x

It's Monday Again!

Yes it's come around again, Monday, and back to work.  Where does the weekend go it's the quickest two days of the week, especially if youv'e had a lovely one.

Anyway Hello to you all and thank you for the lovely comments on my card and also for your kind wishes for our celebrations.  We had a lovely meal out at The North Kessock Hotel last night, had never been there at night before only lunchtime in the summer, but I would highly recommend it if anybody is coming to Inverness, or indeed if already here to try it out.  Now I don't really eat more than two courses, can't manage much more now,but I really went for it last night and ended up with the lightest, most delicous sticky toffee pudding and toffee sauce I've ever had.  Not recommended for someone with diabetes, but hey ho, it was a special day, only thing is it will take around three days to get the blood sugars under control again.
Alistair loved his card and has had a lovely birthday.

So my card for today is a cute little digi stamp from Sugar Nellie;
Just new to these stamps and they are by a Scottish company too, so need to use and promote them.
Sentiment is LOTV, as is background paper, coloured with promarkers, Memory Box corner die, green glittered card and red co-ordinations, ribbons and gems from my stash.
This card was supposed to be for a challenge but, discovered that not only had I the wrong shape but, the wrong colours too.Will have to go back to the drawing board.

That's me for today, I'm off now to choral practice, never feel like going in these cold winter nights, but once there the music is uplifting and I know then why I force myself out the door.

Have a good evening, Kate x

A Lovely Relaxing Sunday

Hello Fellow Bloggers and hoping your Sunday is relaxing.  Thank you for the many lovely comments on my last card they are much appreciated.

Today has been quite a lazy relaxing day which is nice as it's our wedding anniversary, and not doing much is good.  We are however going out for dinner later on and really looking forward to that as we have not been to this restaurant begore, but have heard good things about it. I will miss the last of Downton Abbey though, must try and catch up on the Iplayer at some point.

Tomorrow is Alistair's birthday and he is getting excited about that, heis like a big kid, this is the man who tells me he can't be bothered with it all, Not I think.

Anyway, I don't have a new card made, I'm in the middle of doing one but here is one I made for an 18th birthday for a girl who loves horses:
On a black card I've matted silver and purple card, purpley-blue glitter card stamped image is from the Gorjuss range coloured with promarkers, inked around the edges. with dark blue ink,  black ribbon and flowers from WO, black peel offs, LOTV sentiments.

That's me for today, Kate x

Sports Widow Once Again

Good Evening Everyone, I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend, I know I am, it's our wedding anniversary on Sunday and we celebrate 17 years. One of my clients asked me today what has been best about those years and I shocked myself by replying that I had out lasted the first Mrs. Currie. I don't know where that one came from, but my client thought it was really funny. Anyway, I have and I will be eternally grateful to her for not wanting Alistair, she went on to marry a man with a couple of million, but I got one who makes me laugh, and he is one in a million. It is also Alistair's birthday on the 5th, so it's a double celebration.  I have a singing workshop with the choral society tomorrow and they are always such fun and off to see the new Bond film in the evening, I just may gert some crafting in too. However I have the house to myself as Alistair is away to the climbing wall at the local sports centre, great I can watch all the rubbish telly whilst cardmaking.

Thank you too for all the lovely comments on my last card, and a special thanks to Wendy for the helpful info on taking photos and I will certainly look at the picmonkey site.  Unfortunately tonights photo is not great, seems to have attracted quite a lot of reflection because of the silver and acetate.  My card tonight is Moreen's Christmas card for Damian and my instructions were Reindeers, here it is;

Nearly everything is from Hunkydorry's Elegant Christmas which I bought last year and have lots left. I've used their snowfall acetate on front and decorated it with papermania's stars and snowflakes peel offs, the personal sentiment is made on my PC.  I hope this is OK and that they both like it.

So that is me for tonight, have a lovely weekend what ever your doing ,Kate x

A Productive Thursday Evening

Good Evening All and thank you for the lovely comments about Moreen's card. They are very much appreciated and I look forward to receiving them.

I have had the house to myself tonight so I thought I would manage to get a card made, Alistair and a pal have gone to the swimming pool in Nairn to learn how to capsize a canoe and get into it again, Just how these men love to play!!  He's only been canoing for around ten years, however I guess it's important to learn these things.

This is just a short post tonight as I'm fairly whacked having had quite a stressful day at work but I wanted to get this card made as I want to enter it into LOTV Little Fairies Challenge for this week.The theme is"Snow is Falling"
I really must get one of these things that help you take a good photo, I think they're called a PHOTOGRAPHER!!!!
Anyway I used:   LOTV die cut topper Snowy Town, matted onto silver mirri, on to purple co-ordinations
background paper is from Wild Rose Studio, Bella paper pad,Spellbinder snowflakes, Memory box corner and LOTV sentiment, glittered and gemmed.

Hope you like it,  Good Night,  Kate x
