Good morning dear blogging chums. Hope this finds you as fit as a butchers dog (apologies vegetarians).
Still seem to be ticking along nicely but I don't count them chickens any more as they can be pesky little cluckers!!!
Had a lovely day on Sunday with Nursey Harrop. I'm sure that Christine won't mind me mentioning, now that she has told folk on her blog, that her dear Sister passed away a couple of weeks ago, just 10 days after being diagnosed with cancer.
Another blog friend had also lost her brother a couple of weeks ago too, so its been sad times.
I had hoped that Christine would be up to meeting at the Motorcycle Museum craft show and thankfully she was, armed with some non Geisha factor 50. . . . . .thank you.
John was also demoing at the show, so we kept popping by to heckle him lol!!!
As Myra wanted me to confess all, there is a photo below of my purchases.
Now, as I said on the last post, I had made a box for Nesta's Auntie's card as I would never have got it in an envelope without more squashing than the mammogram lol!!!
I made this some time ago and hadn't snapped it stage by stage but I'm happy to do a tutorial if anyone is interested.
It takes one full sheet of A3 sized card as the card inside was 8x8. The flap could be edged with any die but I used the SW Ara Gemini die.
I hadn't got any of that velcro thingy or I would have used that as a fastener so instead I taped some ribbon to the back and tied it at the front.
Hoping to get over to Breedon today to see John's workshop ladies and also, there is a lovely pie shop/cafe on site and there is a piece of quiche with my name on it . Mrs J, I shall be equipped with the triple stamping card, carnation and clock.
Kate, haven't really named "The Girls" although I quite fancy Cagney and Lacey or Thelma and Louise.
Donna, it would take more than a hat to make me look stylish. I put the shabby into shabby chic lol!!!
Maureen, I will happily make you a 70th birthday card; I take it that its somewhat belated? Hahaha!!! Just you stop plotting with Bonnie Fletcher and Yorkie Clyde. As Mel Braveheart would say "You may take away my life, but you'll never take my wisteria!!!"
Anyhoo, snap below of said craft purchases. Not too bad or indulgent, methinks.
The card packs are 50x300gsm purple and 50x300gsm white at £2.00 per pack. . . . . .Bargain!
The cream pack is 8x8 cards and envelopes.
Enjoy the rest of the week and see you soon . . . . . . . . British GP this weekend so guess what I'm doing (sadly from my armchair rather than actually there this time).
