We went up north to the Moray coast during the October week, and I took a few crafting supplies with me, in case of inclement weather ;-) And we definitely had our fair share of that, but I only really got round to crafting on one day, when I sent hubby and girls off to the Macduff Marine Aquarium and I stayed behind with the dog (who did a lot of sleeping that day, thankfully!). I took Papertrey Ink's stamp set "Warm Happiness" with me, a few background stamp sets, a pad of patterned paper and some coordinating ink and cardstock. And with my limited supplies, I created a few cards:
There was one more, but that found a new owner at the craft fair last weekend, and I also made a bookmark (because I needed one and I had all the supplies there!) which I've not photographed yet. I really like this stamp set, although I haven't really used it all that much, but this is a start :)
Despite the weather, we had a good time during our holiday, and for the kids, the highlight probably was eldest daughter's birthday treat: a visit to the Landmark Centre at Carrbridge. Great place, lots of fun, even in the cold and rain! And because it was eldest daughter's birthday, I let her talk me into doing the higher of the two obstacle courses with her... Me in a harness, balancing across ropes, swinging logs, clambering along suspended car tyres, the works! And I'm not great with heights. But I managed it and felt pretty good about myself afterwards :) And eldest daughter was pleased that she got to do one of her favourite activities with her old mother ;-)
Wow, I feel like I've been quite productive - must get back to actually making more cards now, seeing I'm going to have a stall at the school's Christmas fair in a couple of weeks' time. Just glad that I have my mum's scarf out of the way - it has made its way across to Germany and was very well received :)
Thanks for stopping by and "listening" to me jabbering on, have a great weekend!
