Good morning everyone. Phew, what scorchers we have had recently.
Its been stifling at times at work. We have a fan but all it seems to do is shift the warm air around. Mr D was away for work overnight midweek and so I had the luxury of having our fan at home at full pelt in the bedroom. Even in this weather, he's in jim jams and snuggled under a duvet, not wanting the fan on or a window open!!!
So Tuesday night, there I was, on the bed, flat out with the fan wafting over me warm bits. . . . . . bliss!!!
That is until I had dropped off and it obviously built up a healthy gust which blew over a picture on my chest of drawers. The clatter resulted in my leaving a dent in the ceiling as I jumped with fright. That was that, fan off for the rest of the night.
Now, back to today's card. I've had to do a few guy ones of late and here is. Its a variation of a golfing one I have done before.
I got a few of these Docrafts toppers with sporty themes as I thought they would come in handy.
I tend to use this embossing folder for male cards too.
Brown card (Lidl)
Green card (Lidl)
Papermania embossing folder
SB Matting Basics A & B
Peanut Butter Memento Dew Drop ink (to highlight the embossing)
Had a wonderful morning at Sue's demo on Thursday. The non crafting Nesta came along as well. I think it was out of curiosity as she has been on the end of "Can't chat, Sue Wilson is on the telly" so many times hahaha!
The funny thing was, John had put her on the list as Nesta Vipers and Sue asked as she got things underway, who was Nesta Vipers? which left my poor pal, pink faced lol!!!
Still, it was lovely to see Anne, Joy, Pauline and Kathy again.
Learned a couple of new techniques and just enjoyed seeing the good lady do what she does best. Then had another spend in the shop. . . . . . . 3 embossing folders, a stamp (just had to get John's Twas the Night one), a distress ink dropper and a spatula (don't ask!).
Then a spot of lunch on the way home. . . . . . we went retro and had scampi hahaha!!!
It was a nice interlude in a very busy week. Thankfully, I'm off for a couple of days so I can finally chill. Obviously, today's chill will be in front of the British GP (yes, I did mention I wanted that day off at my interview hahaha!!!). Jacquie and Wendy, enjoy!
Kate's lucky son is at Silverstone and didn't take me as a stowaway (or should that be Stowe-away. . . . . . .sorry none GP fans who won't know, or in fact care, what I'm talking about lol!!!)
Good wishes for the week ahead.
Ps. . . . . Maureen, if you're reading this, thinking of you chuck.
