Hi peeps!
A lovely morning here, sun shining at the moment but I don't know just how long it's going to last.  It depends which window I look out of as to the colour of the sky!

Before I get onto my witterings, I'm sorry I've been a bit remiss in visiting my blog friends, life has been a bit busy recently but I hope to get back to normal this week. 

Now, yesterday ... we had to be in Glasgow by 1030 to pick up Mr C's new car!  At last, I think he's been humming and hawing for about a year now.  Another Skoda but he's got a 4x4 this time as some of the places he goes to work are up dirt tracks and driving is sometimes not easy.  Anyway, the deed is now done!  We were actually in Glasgow earlier than we thought as we'd left in plenty of time because there was football traffic on the road.  There was a McD's next to the garage so we dived in there for a breakfast roll and a coffee.  After we'd picked up the car we headed back to Callander to see our son and DIL, they wanted a nosey round the new car!  The four of us went out to lunch at The Harbour Cafe at Loch Venachar

Loch Venachar

... pity it was blowing a hoolie and pretty dull as it would be the most beautiful spot on a sunny day.  The food was excellent and we'd a fun time.  It was almost 5pm by the time we reached home so it WAS a busy day!

I've just put this card together this morning and had to rake in the crafty cupboard for my stencils.  I don't know when they last saw the light of day.

Best get a move on now as I'm meeting a friend for lunch and a catch up.

Gorgeous views Anne. Glad hubby finally made his mind up on the car.

Great card sweetie, I haven't used my stencils in years, not sure if I still have them as I had a clear out(had to as we were downsizing) when we moved here over two years ago.
