Good morning my little Duckadees. Hope you feel better than I do.
Several colleagues decided last week that they would come to work with stinking colds and true to form, I've caught one. Thankfully, it didn't appear until after the lovely Thai lunch on Saturday. I got an itchy nose Saturday evening and by Sunday morning, my mouth felt like the bottom of a birdcage. I went to work Sunday afternoon and almost lost my voice (Mr Duck was on the edge of Christmas coming early for him lol !!!)
Had to admit defeat for yesterday's shift and stayed at home as I felt like a bag of poo. I doubt whether I would have made it into the charity shop today. As you read this, I shall probably be cocooned in the duvet with tissue up my nose and dribbling into my pillow (sorry to put that image into your head).
Anyhoo, big congrats to Elaine (nattyboots) and Lydia for their being pulled (steady now!) by Sue Wilson and Julia Watts respectively. Lucky girlies.
Also, further to some of the comments on my last post, I too used to have to write thank you notes after birthdays and Christmas. I don't now admittedly but I always ring people to say thank you.
Nesta still hasn't heard anything and the worst of it is, she physically handed the stuff over to her neice and there wasn't even a grunt of thanks at that point so she had hoped it would materialise later but alas, no.
Now, today's card I made for a friend who is a Coventry City supporter (yes, there is one) hence the colour scheme.
The base is A5 in size, white card topped with a slightly smaller silver holographic card layer. I then cut a slightly smaller white layer and scored some horizontal lines across the bottom and top using my Hougie, leaving the centre panel plain.
From the centre panel, I cut three of the Marianne Creatables Snowflakes (LR0125). I then backed the apertures with double sided adhesive and sprinkled with some blue glitter.
I then added some silver satin ribbon, the heat embossed, matted and layered sentiment and some blue bling. This was all then foam padded to the holographic layer and that was that.
Here's hoping your day is runny nose free and supahdoopah.
