"Knit and Knatter"

Hello there Blog Friends we have had another wonderful day here today.  Crystal clear blue skies, sun shining from just after 7am till late.  Very cold but who cares as long as the sun is shining.
We popped up to Blairgowrie this morning, 8 miles north of here, we were so surprised to see so much snow still in some of the gardens.  The Tennis courts have about 3" of snow covering them.  Think it might be a while before they will be able to play tennis there!!!
Thank you for all the comments on my BIG project.  Now that one is done I think I will try another maybe not this week though!!!
Hazel would like to thank you for your lovely comments and all your good wishes. She is keeping great, looks fantastic, has been back at work as a Professional Nanny since late September early October.  Amazing what sheer determination and positive thinking can do...................and by great was she determined and positive!!!

Today`s card is a House Mouse image that I got somewhere on the Internet ages ago.

Base card approx 5 x 7
Coloured the image with Promarkers, actually looks darker in real life
Mounted the image on a piece of coloured card
Then onto card I had pierced round the edge
Mounted it all onto Kraft Card
I added a strip of a knitting pattern I photo copied
Wound up some knitting yarn and added that

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in today I really appreciate you coming to see what has been happening here in my wee corner of Blogland
