My mum arrived home from another URC training - this time in Windermere, after Dad had left to discover water coming down the kitchen wall. Her question to him "Did you know it was leaking?" still has me chuckling - although the situation doesn't. She also decided not to turn the stopcock off as she would be cold without the central heating... I have phoned this morning and got no reply so she might have gone shopping as Friday morning is shopping day.
This morning we have had lost pe kit (Carys as a nice change), forgotten cello and then a call from Phil's mother as there is tough family news from Canada and she has to travel there asap. Which has rather sent life all awry.
And, most importantly of all - it meant an all out rush to try and get a card done for today. Especially as it was my turn for the dare this week. It was a bit tough - and it may look as though the team have turned chicken - but it is simply that there is loads of ill health, pregnancy and business just now!
So here it is
Song without wordsI would like you to create a card inspired by a song or a carol - it could be for Christmas or not! (you may have got all your Christmas cards done by now...) BUT there is a twist. the words of the song are NOT to be seen on the front of the card. You could leave it to us to guess! Have fun!
It looked so much better in my head
The card stock is 8x8 Bazzill folded in half.
The paper is nearly all from the Self Addressed September kits, one of my most favouritest ever. I added some gold card . The nativity figures are QK dies. I bought the nativity set a few years ago meaning to use it for Christmas cards. Until I started to cut it out. Now it is saved for special occasions as it is v. fiddly.
Then lots of outlining with gold pen and some pop dots for effect. Then just added a bit of ribbon. Well two actually. Held in place by two gold brads.
Why can't you buy just gold brads on their own anymore?
NOt as serious as some of the above problems but still annoying.
Anyway can you tell what the song is yet?
It was number 1!
