Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK and nobody has gotten caught up in this awful trouble we are having at the mo.
More in a sec. Firstly we have a lovely challenge for you over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and it is
And looks what’s up for grabs ….
Now my camera seems to have let me down a bit cos my card looks like it needs a good wash in Daz bur IRL it looks much cleaner …..
… see what I mean!!! It looks quite grubby, soz :(
Anyway the image is of course Elf Tilda and she was coloured with Copics and doused with Glamour Dust. The base card was made using Grand Nestabilities but I didn't add any design paper – I just scored the circular piece of card and added some liquid pearls.
I made a rolled flower and added a little pearl and sat it in the middle of a Magnolia Doily Flower.
Very plain and simple and straightforward :)
I guess you’ve all been reading about the probs we Brits are having at the mo and compared to the poor people of Somalia it isn't even on the same page. But it’s not alright and, like most decent peeps, it has gotten me so mad.
It would not be politically correct to say what I would do to these hood rats if I got my hands on them. In fact, it is possibly because of political correctness that we are in this mess now. I would come down do hard on them and also their parents and it isn't an excuse to say that they don't know what their kids get up to when they are out of the house. They are parents and they should know. I don't always know where my kids were but sure as hell I knew they weren't looting or robbing injured people or setting homes and shops on fire. Sorry but if my kids came in with watches and jeans and bottles of booze etc, I would be asking questions!!! Or am I missing the point do you think? Some parents probably encourage their offspring to go put and nick but most don’t. And the police looked like they didn't know what had hit them, because, well they actually didn't. My SIL is a policeman and he does riot duty etc and I’ve seen the gear they have to wear. How they even stand up in it is beyond me – it is so heavy. I thank God that he and Emma are in Las Vegas at the mo or he would have been in amongst it all.
One of my work associates works in Manchester and they were sent home early yesterday. He lives in the city so he went from the frying pan into the fire. He told me that he went into his local Tesco to get stuff for dinner and just had a feeling that he had to leave so he grabbed a pizza and went home. 10 minutes later that shop was set alight and destroyed.
I hear that tonight will be more of the same and I hope and pray nobody gets injured. How nobody has been killed in these fires is a miracle and people have lost their homes and all their possessions. I think we need to take off the kid gloves and get tough now cos this cannot carry on. I have no answers cos the causes are so complex but it is a sad state of affairs for what was a wonderful country. And it still is a wonderful country and I am proud to be a Brit – just not right now.
Anyway we have her ladyship for a whole week while her mamma is away. She is downstairs playing on the Wii and putting make up on her Grandad (it isn't his usual look I promise!!) so on that note and before she turns him into Mark / Marcia from Corrie. I better go and see what’s happening.
Have a nice day and hugs to all xxx
