Good morning everyone. Hope that this finds your tickety very boo. My voice has now evolved to a cross between Norman Collier and Frank Ifield. In fact, if I speak for long enough, dogs appear on my doorstep lol!!!
Firstly, I extend a very warm welcome to Anneke who has kindly pressed the follow button. Only another 3 to go to 100 lovely followers and I have a super paddle prize to send when we hit those dizzy heights.
Donna, you be careful in that snow
Jenny all dittys gratefully received chuck.
Elaine, me, write a book? Yikes! Well, I suppose I could make it available on the NHS as a cure for insomnia hahaha!
Now, today's card was born just out of having a play with John Lockwood's Daisy Corner Elements stamp set.
I made a mask for each of the three flowers I used and just went on a stamping frenzy.
I stamped the daisies in Memento London Fog as I thought black may be too harsh. I then coloured the centres in black to make them stand out.
The sentiment from the stamp set, is recessed into the card.
White card (6x6)
Orange and black card (Lidl)
John Lockwood Daisy Corner Elements stamps
Card-io stamps (the butterflies)
X-cut circle die

Pound shop felt tips (just being honest lol!!!)
Hope that I have managed to do my matey's stamps some justice, as you all know I am not a colourist by any stretch of the imagination.
I popped in on John at his demo day at Daisy's Jewels and Crafts (rather appropriately) yesterday, where he was doing his thang with Hels Sheridan and Pauline Wheeler. He is there again today if anyone is in the vicinity.
Well, its another day let loose at the shop on my own. I guess they figured I didn't manage to destroy the place last Tuesday, so they'd give me another chance to do it today hahaha!!!
This was bad rota-ing by my manager as its a live F1 GP from Bahrain this afternoon, and I shall therefore be having to drive like Lewis Hamilton to get home after closing time so I don't miss too much of the race. . . . . . . . . . . only joking if any of you fine people happen to belong to the local constabulary!
Should be interesting at work if my voice is no better. . . . . Lord help anyone who comes in with a hearing aid, they'll think the battery is on the blink lol!!! I may have to resort to hand gestures. . . . . . I bet you can guess a couple of them already hahaha!!!
Anyhoo, enjoy your Sunday folks and be good.
