Good morning everyone. Hope all is well in your bits of the world.
Welcome to my new follower. You're not showing up on Blogger so may be anonymous but I'm glad you have joined us for a paddle.
Thank you all for your kind concern about the shin and for putting the oojits up me (Darnell!!!) Still have an itchy head. . . . . . .that'll be the sand from where my head has been buried lol!!! Things have eased so think it just needs a bit of resting. Not much chance as I'm doing extra days still but I'm going to be feet up enjoying the F! GP from Spa in Belgium today.
Now, todays card is another from John's shows and this did get shown. I got down and dirty with the gilding flakes. . . . . . .same as sand, you find them everywhere for days after lol!!!
CE Silver card
CE Rich Red card
John Lockwood's Partridge in a Pear Tree stamp set
John Lockwood's 12 Days of Christmas 8x8 paper pad
Sue Wilson Snowflake Lattice embossing folder
Silver gilding flakes
CE red and silver ribbon
Ranger sticky embossing powder
I really did have a lot of fun making these cards and I'm a sucker for a paper pad. . . . . .or two!
Well, I did make it to lunch with Nesta and co but only just. The evening before, Mr D and I frequented our local hostelry for a bite to eat after work. I decided to have my favourite roast chicken but with the option of the spicy hot naga ghost chilli marinade. I love spicy food (its in the genes) and happily munch on raw green chillies as a snack but I have never eaten anything as hot as this before. Dentists could use the stuff to anaesthetise folks mouths!!!
Still, all was good until the early hours of the following morning when I discovered why they are called "ghost" chillies. . . . . . . because at 1.30am they came back to haunt me lol!!!
They continued to "haunt"me for several hours so I won't be touching that stuff again. I think you could probably strip paint with it!!!
Are we all going to be watching the new craft channel on Thursday? I still think Hochanda sounds like something rude in Spanish. . . . . . . . can imagine kicking someone in the hochandas, hahaha!!! Hope everyone is going to watch John. Poor lamb is prepping demos like mad for his shows so I shall be going over to mop his fevered brow tomorrow morning.
Jenny, did wonder where you were going with that bruised boob story lol!!!
Sam, the bauble dies were actually Spellbinder ones but Sue's would work equally as well. . . . . .oh and congratulations on winning John's stamps!
And everyone else, thank you for your encouraging comments about my cards, leg and life in general. . . . . . . you're all good eggs (or tofu for the vegans).
