Ohhh I am soooooooooo late with my card this week for the fabbydoodles Just Magnolia challenge peeps – more in a sec.
But we are on the case now and I guess better late than never
This week it’s our special monthly challenge and it’s a lovely one is this, because we want you to make a criss -cross card. There are lots of tutorials in the land of blog but our featured stamper Jeanette from Happy Thoughts and Ink Spots has a cracking one to follow and if this bit works correctly, (and as I’ve done it, it may well not lolxxx), you should be able to see it ….
… here :)
Before I get onto my card, I just want to send loads of love and best wishes to my JM teamie Michelle. She has had a terrible accident and has lost her right eye – you can read about it on her blog here. Michelle, I am thinking about you my love and hope things are on the up for you xxx
Tilda was coloured with Copics in the following colours -
E00, E21, E35, E42. E50, E53, R11, R20, RV0000, RV000, RV10, RV23, YG0000, YG03
Tracy at Dies To Die For has a fab array of these awesome pens plus a lorry load of other deliciousness. She’s adding new stuff all the times so keep checking it all out lovely peeps xxx
Another thing I don’t think I will ever tire of are these beautiful blooms which are of course from the one and only Wild Orchid Crafts.
And that’s me card done.
Well we’ve had a funny couple of days I have to say, most of which I won’t bore you with, but you might enjoy this story which is the reason I am late getting this on here. I am enjoying it now but I really wasn't at the time (and neither was our poor Kyla).
I picked little Miss up from nursery on Thursday as she was in residence for the evening and we went home. Rich was already there and was sorting out the food for the birds for the following day. It's all frozen so he gets it out of the freezer in the evening so it’s defrosted in time for the next day. So as we arrive, he is going into the garage where the bird food freezers are and just as we are going into the house, I hear an almighty crash. So we ran to the garage only to find that the up and over door had fallen down and had jammed shut – and he was trapped inside the garage.
Well I did snigger a bit I must be honest, and then I set to and tried to open the door.
But would it budge – not a flamin chance!!! So he is trying to free it from the inside and I am trying to free it from the outside. But it was literally stuck fast. Well poor Kyla was crying her little heart out because she probably thought she would not see him again and he was telling her through the door that he was fine and there was nothing to worry about. I am wondering if we should call the fire brigade or what the hell to do (calm in a crisis – not!!) and he is saying, no don’t be ridiculous, I’ll sort it, and I'm thinking he is going to dehydrate in there cos it’s like a furnace.
So not so much sniggering now!!!
Well the upshot was that it took us AGES to get him out but he emerged unscathed eventually. But it obviously effected poor Kyla - she ended up having a bad dream that night and I was up half the night with her, poor little sausage.
So anyway, by the time we had got him out, there was no light to take the pic and then I was in a zombie like state yesterday and forgot to sort it.
Oh the trials and tribulations!! And my God, I’ve waffled today peeps so thanks for staying with me (those of you who are still awake lol xxx)
Now before I go, last Saturday I was GDT for the lovely Emma at Allsorts and I did a bit of a giveaway, so the 5 chicksters who won the card kits are -
Hugest of thanks to everyone who put their names down - I’m just sorry I couldn’t send you all one xxx If the 5 winners could e-mail me their details, I’ll post their stuff of to them next week xxx
Phew, this was a mammoth post today, so that’s me done. Have a fab weekend lovelies and see you soon if not sooner, and hugs to all xxx
