Number 8 From John's shows. . . . . . . .And a Little F1

Good morning dear blog chums. Hope this finds you and yours well?

A picture heavy post today, I'm afraid as I thought I'd share some Silverstone snaps too as happily, I made it to the GP.......hurrah!!!
It was down to the wire and my goodness, it was a struggle at times but the staff at Silverstone were great and got us a buggy to ride along on from the car park to the grandstand and a bit of the way back too as I did manage a very slow walk 2/3 of the way back after the race.
I know its the tablets that are making me breathless but not much I can do until my cardiology referral is sorted.

Now, today's card is another from John's shows at the end of May (aren't his Christmas stamps terrific?) and would probably make a decent sympathy or get well card too.

Ivory & Rich Plum Foundation card
SB Fancy Postage Stamps die (extended)
Hougie Board for the scoring
John Lockwood Larkspur Elements stamps (florals in panel)
John Lockwood Peony Elements stamps (sentiment)
Versamark (for watermark effect down the panel)
Memento Dewdrop Sweet Plum ink
Cream Pearlage

Quite CAS but simple sometimes does it for me lol!!!

Now, I hope you don't mind a couple of indulgent F1 snaps. It rained when we got to the circuit but I was still smiling and 10 minutes before the race started, we had a hailstorm with hail the size of marrowfat peas (and no, our grandstand wasn't covered lol!!!) but I was still smiling.

The drivers go round the circuit before the race on the trailer and wave to fans. The trailer actually stopped in front of Vale where we were and Jenson and Lewis jumped off and came over to greet fans. Jenson actually threw some McLaren hats over the fence (too far for me to hurl my M&S finest at him lol!!!)

The Red Arrows put on a very fine display of aerobatics. This was about the only decent shot I got, Just before the hail started.

Had to show a photo with the cars so here's 3 of them...........and yes, the Sun did come out and stayed out for the rest of the race (my face looks like I've had week in Spain lol!!!)

Thank you so much for all of your positive thoughts and good wishes as I'm sure that in no small part, they encouraged me to just gird my loins (well, if I had loins to gird) and go for it.
I was one exhausted but happy girlie. 
Only trouble is, I want to go again. I think Mr D hoped that I would have got it out of my system now but nahhhh..................me wants more lol!!!

Anyhoo, time for bed said Zebedee (I'm scheduling).

    Great card too, John is sooooo busy, xxxs

  8. Good Morning to you Ang, so pleased you managed your day at the F1,and great photos. Damian was green with envy, I asked him to keep an eye out for you. He phoned back half an hour later and asked if I knew how many thousands of people would be there, then said what does she look like anyway! Didn't hear back from him.
    Now your card is stunning, simplicity, but elegant, wonderful design, you are a clever one.
    Rest up now, Kate x

  11. It must have done you the world of good to be out and about at Siverstone even if it was tiring.
    Love the plum and ivory card, it looks like it could lend itself to a few occasions.
    From the tub! Jennie

  12. Hi Ang,
    what a very brilliant card.
    Love the design, and colour choice.
    Yes this would make a lovely design for quite a few occasions.
    So glad you had a good time at the Grand Prix.
    It is a great get well tonic for you I'm sure to get up and close to a sport you love so much.
    Big hugs from my house to yours.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  13. So glad you managed to get to Silverstone, Ang.
    Love the card - those embossed lines around the sentiment are very effective.
    Look after yourself.

  14. Hi Ang! So glad you got to the races! Sounds like the weather has been a bit strange with the hail (We had a big hail storm here two weeks ago - must have sent it your way LOL). Beautiful CAS card Love the embossed lines on it. Have a great day.

  15. Hi Ang, love the card you are sharing today, a lovely colour combo. Great pics from the GP, so glad you got there and enjoyed it. Take care. Bx

  16. Lovely card Ang. So pleased you managed the GPrix and it was fun.

  17. Hi Ang, what a super, understated card, but so clever when it's dissected (if you know what I mean).
    Glad you got to Silverstone and had a good day, next up - what about Monte Carlo ha ha - catch Mr D as he falls when you suggest it.
    Take care, keep breathing.
