So lets deal with spots first. I am now 43 years old (nearly 44, gulp. that is nearly 45 and THAT is half way to Fifty!!!!) I didn't suffer that much with spots when I was a teenager. And in that strange teen way longed for the signs of being grown up like acne and a sweaty upper lip.
(I had to pause there and remember the pangs of jealousy over a girl who had REAL BEADS of sweat on her below the nose area. I have only rarely had a sweaty upper lip since and strangely do not feel like I have really missed out).
SO why am I so spotty now. And the rest of my face doesn't look dewy and fresh to make up for it? that rather attractive freckle on my chin mutated into a frankenstinian mole ages ago. I have burst blood vessels on one of my cheeks so it is red all the time and people keep trying to wipe off the mark for me. And SPOTS. So I went to Boots on Wednesday and decided I now need camoflauge and serious chemical help. And now Phil tells me that my chin is glowing red. I wish balaclavas were back in fashion...
Just to make me feel better he sent me the link to this song Love you too my darling.
On to more positive things then... its school holidays! Which means I still have to work but not get up so early :) And it is nearly Holy Week and I just love it all (see yesterdays post) even though I have to work like a trooper. And the new Funky Hand cd arrived today so sometime in all of this I have to create so that Anice has some things to promote it when the cd goes live on Ideal World....on Monday 27th April at 6pm.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaand its Daring Card Makers Day. And Keryn posed a real pip of a challenge!
Feeling FruityMy dare this week is to put a piece of fruit on your card. Make your card for any occassion and use any fruit you like the look of.
I knew exactly what to reach for. Yes the Offbeat collection by Basic Grey. I'm still working through it. Its a fun challenge! And there is paper with pears and radishes on. there is also a chipboard radish. Still haven't worked out what to do with that. But anyway as it is not a fruit I was able to focus on the pear!
I added a paper frill, some tiny gems, some Making Memories Alpha stickers and a doodle or two. And you can just see the inside which is where the punch line is!
Right must go and do some work. And something about my chin...
