Here's One I Made Earlier

Hello there and a big welcome to my blog.  I have found a few cards in my New Cards folder that I have not posted before - I did have to check through my blog to be double sure!

I have used a Hero Arts Stamp for this one and stamped the colours straight to the stamp if you know what I mean. Its really bugging me that I have no idea where that thanks has come from - I am going to have to go and have a look ..... hold on .................... ahhhh it's a Memory Box die which I had no idea I possessed!!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Fussy and Fancy - Swirls and Pearls
City Crafter - Mostly White
PDE Linky Party - Blue and White
Die Cuttin' Divas - Picture Challenge (I used the colours)

Have you anything nice planned for the weekend?  We are doing housework in a minute then some shopping (food) and then we are going over to my Daughter's and her partner's house this afternoon. Dave is helping them with a few jobs whilst I play with Rowan and we are staying over and having a meal with them.  I do hope it stays fine as snow is forecast and they live in land where they are more likely to have snow - fingers crossed.

Thank you so much for looking and the wonderful comments you leave.

A really beautiful and elegant design and the 'thanks' die is fab - it's always nice to re-discover some stash you had forgotten about... almost as good as buying new stash!

I had a lovely weekend; a fab meal out, bit of crafting, teeny bit of housework and a walk in the sunshine today :-) I hope you had a fantastic time with your family after getting the chores done.

Big hugs, Kat x
