I still have a bad cold but I'm struggling on - pause for sympathy. (Didn't Onassis say of Jackie Kennedy, 'The only place she'll find sympathy, is beween sh*t and syphilis in the dictionary'?) I digress. I made this card this afternoon for my neighbour's little girl Evie. I've used my Nesties and Cuttlebug and a Bild Malarna stamp. She's one of my faves.
I managed to attend both of Kim's classes at Lavender Lane yesterday. It's always great to meet up with the other regular ladies and we always have a good laugh. Kim did us proud with her tutorials and I will post the cards I made later in the week.
I went to a garden centre today (Wyevales in Morden) and bought a few marigolds to brighten the back garden and pots. I couldn't help myself but I had to mention to the staff that there were spelling errors on the Specials blackboard. This news was not well received but I felt better. People just don't know where to put an apostrophe do they? They had written "Hot roast dinner with carrots and potato's". Then I took my latte back because at least half of it was foam. I asked the young man serving if it was his first day on the job. His reply was 'No'. I think I made my point.
Howdy! I have finally got around to posting a card after a short absence. I don't seem to have as much time as I used to. It must be the new job. I am suffering today with a head cold. I really didn't feel like getting up at 05:51 hrs but I did and it was a lovely sunny morning.
This card is for my lovely friend Pat, who lives in Worthing. It's an easel card, as you can see and I used one of those fabric squares. Pat has a beach hut by the sea. The dangly bits are attached to ribbon. I bought a job lot a while ago and was able to share it around. Kim's coming to Stoneleigh tomorrow for a class. I can only do the morning one though as we have friends Val and Eric coming over for a meal. I was going to cook but we may take them out or have a take away instead.
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
