Good morning one and all. Hope you are well and to those who've not had the best of weeks so far, as Yaz said, "the only way is up" (or was that my gynecologist?)
Nice to see Val back. Hope you're better chuck.
Anyhoo, I'm a very excited girlie. Next year, I will not be sat watching the British F1 GP from my living room, I shall be screaming like a banshee at Silverstone hurrah and double hurrah. . . . . . .and what the heck, thrice hurrah!
I was poised at 10am Monday morning on the Silverstone website waiting for next years early bird tickets to go on sale. It took about 40 minutes in queues but tickets purchased by Mr D for my birthday next year.
He had got his mate to make secret enquiries about packages to Barcelona or Belgium to see the GPs there but I said it had to be Silverstone.
I apologise, in advance for the times during the next 12 months where I bore the pants off you by whooping about it lol!
Now, back to Earth Ang and the card. I made this for my dear friend David, the one who travels around a bit. . . . . .well, a lot actually. He is currently somewhere in South America on his trip round Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.
This was for his birthday in June and I got the idea, I believe, from an anniversary card that Karenlotty made (a thousand apologies if I've had a memory lapse on that one and said the wrong person)
Black card (Lidl)
Brown card (Lidl)
Old map printed from tinterweb
Swiss Dots embossing folder
Cosmic Shimmer Black PVA Pearls
Stampin Up sentiment
Black Archival ink
He was chuffed with it (but probably won't be chuffed that I've told the world how old he is hahaha!) I've now been asked to do another for where the person was born abroad so getting hold of a map to print off for that will be interesting lol!
Wendy hope your bits have stopped sweating and that Janice's doggy isn't suffering to much Thankfully, I haven't needed that bloomin fan since.
Pamellia, I'm surprised that the bits of broken lamp haven't made their way onto a card lol!
Christine, please tell me you are a real person whose had a bat up her nightie lol!
Gail, if there was Prosecco in the offing, the St Bernard wouldn't have made it out of The Pond lol!
Jan, I got my sporty toppers from The Range at £1 per set and I think I'm doing my hostess with the mostest again on 30th July.
Jacquie, no such luck with Mr D nodding off downstairs. He's always first in bed and emitting a low rumble (that's snoring rather than anything else lol!!!)
Karenlotty, me write a book? Heavens to murgatroyd! It would be discounted in The Works within a week and book folded into the Eiffel Tower by someone within a month hahaha!!!
For those of you who don't know, lovely Maureen lost her brother last Saturday so sending sincere condolences to you and your family Maureen.
