Thank you very much

Thank you for staying with my despite the cryptic moan in on my last post.
Thanks to Roy who stepped in at the last minute to take a service for me as I was really not well enough last week (I do hate that happening)
Thanks to Alan who organised an extra special church trip to the zoo yesterday.
And thanks be to God that I was well enough to enjoy it.
Bad enough missing the Exeter Stitches show when I had bought a ticket and everything, but to have missed meeting the baby giraffe (she was a surprise birth apparently!) that would have been terrible.

Both Roy and Alan are getting one of these
as I made two of them! They are for this weeks DCM colour challenge - a lovely Autumn colour scheme chosen by the wonderful Sharon
I think there are 4 different manufacturers of paper featuered - October Afternoon; Studio Calico; MME and Heidi Swapp. Not bad for a small card eh?
It also features a new Cheery Lynn die that I won - so another thank you this time to Tracy from Dies to Die for.
The notched sentiment strip is also from there - one of my compensation for missing Stitches parcels (I was very sorry not to go!)
The other dies are Nestabilities; the stamp is Purple Onion and the gems are from Sarahs Cards.

I didn't get round to blogging last weeks dare - Chevrons. (I love chevrons). Fortunately I had made my card in advance of falling ill. To be honest I had made it thinking that the chevron dare came before the "thanks" one the week before!

I used Echo Park papers with a smidgeon of MME; some Imagine That stamps and white emobssing powder; an old button and paper flower and some white, yellow and teal liquid pearls. I may have gone liquid pearl crazy!

I've shared some zoo photos on Facebook but had to repeat and add a few more here. The gorilla was on his way to jumping out and scaring teenagers. We watched him do it twice. Hilarious!

You can see what a lovely day it was yesterday in South Devon. Back to constant rain today. I'm off to Messy Church now. Which is VERY loud and VERY  hectic and VERY messy and VERY  fun and full of the love of God

Gorgeous cards Lythan, the papers on your colour combo card are just lovely, and I love the layout. Your day at the zoo looks like great fun, I just love going to the zoo!
