Man Card Monday
Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Boy this has been a long weekend, with Paul either at work or sleeping, so I have felt like I had to keep 'shushing' everyone, trouble is our bedroom is the first room next to the lounge and kitchen, everyone has to walk past it to go anywhere, the trouble is Paul hasn't done night shifts for a couple of years and the girls have just gotten used to being noisy, be it singing, play fighting or their main love playing their music quite loud, (I enjoy their music choice so I don't mind) it was Adele yesterday! The girls are also extremely stressed with exams and revising, Diane I am sure you haven't forgotten what it's like, I am trying to keep them positive, trouble is I remember only to well walking into that Exam Hall and feeling like I had remembered nothing! I think it's made worse when they sit and think too much, yesterday's gem was "we have to go through this every year for the next three years" which is very true!
Although I don't ever remember my mum and dad helping me with revision, (Sophie was in hysterics on Friday night, she asked me to help her with her Spanish Speaking test, I had to ask the questions, well I was trying my best, but my goodness its a hard language to get the gist of 'v's sound like 'b's, or is it the other way and two l's together make a 'y' sound, well you can imagine my pronunciation error's) but it did make it fun!
Anyway on to today's cards, they are of course made by our very talented Anne, I do love the embossing folder you have used, it looks 'quilted' almost, you too are very good at combining your colours and matching them to your focal elements, both of the cards would be perfect for men, particularly if they are interested in sailing or anything Nautical.
Thank you Anne for sharing your fabulous man cards with all of us xxxx
I think I am about ready for a 'top up' of man cards, if any of you have any that they would like to share.
I will leave you with a stand on the 'soapbox' I am not sure how all of you feel about the news yesterday that the Cinema giants have pulled the 'political correctness' card and banned an advert due to be aired on the week before Christmas, the problem they have with it is that the advert recites 'The Lord's Prayer' which could be 'offensive' although the advertising body deemed it fine, its promoting the power of prayer, something that I would imagine everyone would have turned to at one time or another.
As a child we recited 'The Lords Prayer' every morning in assembly and sang hymns, something that I used to love. Would it really be that offensive?? When you think of some of the things we have had to change to accomodate others! Soapbox stowed back under the stairs should any of you need it!
Love and hugs
