Something Different

Well it is a bit different for me, cos it isn't my usual 6x6 card.
It's actually 2 of them stuck together and trimmed to make a card that is this shape -

I tell you peeps, it isn't easy to photograph - or maybe that's just me lol xxxx
We did this type of card at card club on Monday so I thought I'd use it for our Anyone For Anya challenge which this week is Pink & White + 1. So as you could use any other colour, I went for my fave pale pistachio!!!

And I just had to use my new Dahlia stamp which I got this week from the fabulous Dies To Die For. How sweet is she!!!! I coloured her with the usual pens and blingy stuff. The papers are Pink Petticoat (spotty) and the ginghams are Funky Fairy.

The sentiment is from a Woodware set - sorry I cannot remember which one :(

The button is from my stash box and the ribbon is from a local warehouse. I coloured the string with the PMs so that it matched the green on the flower in Dahlia's hair.

This is what it looks like all fastened up. Nip over and check out the blog peeps cos there is a lovely stamp up for grabs this week and some fabulous cards by the team for you to feast yer eyes on :)xxx

Did anybody see......

The Happy Mondays last night on that Ghosthunting prog with Yvette Fielding? Now I know the language was a bit fruity to say the least but I tell you, it was hysterical. For a start. I only have to look at Bez and I smile. But watching him and the others having their melons twisted by 'whoever or whatever' was one of the funniest things I've seen in a while.

If you missed it and it ever gets repeated, you have to watch it. Be warned, as I say they are a bit Anglo-Saxon with their choice of wordage but even so .....

My lot think the whole prog is a big set up and maybe they are right but I cannot make up my mind to be honest. Possibly there is a bit of crew jiggery pokery but maybe not all of it is.

I'm quite a logical person (no, I am really!!) and I think that if out of all the gazillions of ghost stories you hear, if only one of them is genuine then it must be true. I've lived in a house where all sorts of things went on and the bathroom was very scary. I didn't know until much later that somebody actually died in there. Ohhh-errrrr!!!

And Emma is convinced that in this house, she saw somebody standing looking out of the window on two seperate occasions. One was late one night as she was coming up the lane home. She thought it was either me or Richard but we were both fast asleep ( as she was driving, she was totally sober). And one was in the day time when she drove past on her way to work from dropping Kyla off at nursery. I was in my office and nowhere near the window - not even in that room.

No expanation for either incident.

Anyway, before I scare meself silly - cos I such a wimp re these things - I am off to do some work. I hope that you all have a fab Sunday and that you get to enjoy the lovely weather we are supposed to be having until mid week.

Take care and hugs to all xxxx

Hiya Dawny...I love this fold up is so lovely and the papers..ribbon and button!
Now I am a big sceptic as well and I still don't know if I saw what I saw or if the emotional part of the brain was tricking me but the night of the day my mum died I woke up and was sure she was standing in my bedroom looking out of the window...and it was like the bit at the end of 'Ghost' when Patrick Swayze glows up and walks into the light.... She looked lovely...all bonde hair an angel! Who!

Lil Sis said...

Not at all sceptical I def think there are ghosts - but not to sure about Yvette and her team I think they tend to make things up if nothing is happening!!!!!

Oh yeah and the card is brilliant love the shape.
