Mini Bear.

Hi everyone. You wouldn't think I'd had a day off today when I'm ending up posting at this time of day. I had so much catching up to do and I even read the papers. And of course I had lots of texts to reply to with everyone sending me happy birthday wishes. I think I'm up to date now but I feel a bit lazy having only made one very simple card.

My family were all here at the weekend, only from Saturday afternoon till Sunday afternoon but it was a bit hectic. With 6 adults, two children and 4 Labradors it felt quite busy. All three of my children had gone together and paid for our meal and my presents. One of my birthday presents was a posh bag from Joules. Just after Catriona and family left I picked up the bag to take it through to my bedroom. When I looked inside Poppy's favourite Winnie the Pooh was inside. It's one of those sort of comfort blankets. I gave her it when she was a  baby. It's just a head with a sort of blanket type body and four paws. She has a few of them and Oliver has a few Tiggers the same. Needless to say she needed it Catriona said when we sent her a text! So I said I'd post it. For a bit of fun I took photos of him doing various things like helping to fold my washing, watching me ironing and having a nap in the bed Poppy slept in here. Then today he had to go in a padded envelope with some chocolate buttons, go in the car, get weighed at the post office and the last pic was my colleague putting the envelope in the mail bag! Poppy really liked getting the photos and reading what he was doing. I think he'll probably turn up in Crieff tomorrow!

I don't think this card has  turned out as it was in my head. Maybe I should have used a different colour to stamp the image and sentiment. What do you think? I'm not really happy with this card but it's done now!

I used :-
Image and sentiment :- LOTV.
Cardstock :- Stampin' Up! Pool Party.
Ink :- SU Pool Party.
I pierced round the edge using the SU Essentials Paper-Piercing pack.


CAS Monday with LOTV :- CAS LOTV card.
Daring Cardmakers :- Ink it up.
Totally Papercrafts :- CAS.
Less is More :- Coloured card blank. One layer.
Addicted to Stamps and More :- Addicted to CAS.

That's me now I think. I'm watching that fantastic programme about the Hebrides. It's narrated by Ewan McGregor and the photography is amazing. The scenery and wildlife are just stunning. I don't know if it's networked or just showing in Scotland but don't miss it it's just as good as all these programmes from exotic places. The underwater filming is incredible. The underwater reefs are really spectacular. Crikey you'd think I worked for the Visit Scotland or something!

Anyway thanks for looking and thanks to everyone for happy birhday/anniversary wishes. I'm not really sure where 37 years disappeared to!

  2. Good Morning Kat,
    Very simple but effective card, I like it.
    I have had a scroll back and managed to get an idea for my Hubby`s birthday card needed for the end of the month.

    Thank you so much for your kind comment on my Blog.
    Also for the information on Sue Wilson`s upcoming Demo at Papetrie Aberdeeen
    The ladies in the shop did not mention about the viewing screen. That would make a world of difference to being able to see what is going on.
    Have a Great Day
