My Lovely Supporters

29 Nov 2021


 Hi all, today I have another festive card to share and enter into some challenges.
My card features an image that I recently purchased from Pink Gem I have coloured her with Nuvo and Graphic markers, the card stock is from my stash, I added some glitter and a die cut snowflake 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Last week my son invited me out for lunch with Reuben of course I accepted as I so wanted to see my baby Grandson, we had a wonderful lunch I thought I would share a picture of myself and Reuben this is a rarity for me as I hate having my picture taken let alone letting anyone see it, but I have made an exception on this occasion 

He is such a beautiful boy with a lovely smile and dimples, lol.
see you later

He had indeed got a lovely smile and it's wonderful to see a photo of you Lorraine, I seem to remember you said something similar when I posted one of myself and Margo. Obviously these babies bring out the best in us as neither like having our photos taken.

And love your cure Gnome, do hope theres plenty of now where he is because with that hat he won't see where he's going so needs a soft landing when he falls.

Had another car incident here yesterday. Another stray around the last few days, very friendly and clearly a 'house' cat. No luck finding an owner so been feeding it, then yesterday notices it had injured its neck. Took it to the out of hours vet, it was chipped but they can't trace the owner, but biggest surprise expecting kittens any day.

Spoke with the vet this morning and they are keeping it there at the moment as its neck needs treatment and kittens due. Then they said it will be Wood Green if they can't trace the owner, so I'll keep in touch with them once it's moved.

Gorgeous card Lorraine - your new image is adorable and so beautifully coloured, and goes so perfectly with your papers and embellies. Love the cute picture of you and Reuben .. what a darling boy. Glad you had a nice lunch out ... I dream of going out for lunch, but as we have no family to speak of I can't yet bring myself to risk it with friends. Sometimes wonder if this nightmare will ever end!! Take care

Lovely photo of yourself with your Grandson. Love this gnome card. I have also recently purchased some Pink Gem gnome images (papers mysteriously fell into basket at same time) but not this gorgeous little gnome girl. Methinks i will have to do a return trip. So thankful that it can be a virtual one and noT have to venture outside. hugs Mrs A.

A beautiful photograph of you and Reuben, he looks such a jolly little lad - I don't know why you don't like having your photo taken, you look fabulous.

A lovely cute gnome image and beautifully coloured and designed card. Great to see you and I acknowledge the courage it takes to share a photo of oneself here in blogland - like you I'm rather camera shy.
