Michele's Beautiful Blue 'pop up box card'
Michele's Pink 'Pop up box card'
Good Morning Ladies,
I start today with a huge apology.....sorry I didn't get your Sketch Cards up today, they will be published tomorrow (just for this week)!
This is because of the sheer incompetence of the staff at the Port Of Calais !!!, we arrived a good 3 hours before our Ferry was set to sail to find that the Police had blocked off the whole motorway into the Port, we watched as about 8 police rounded up about 6 immigrants in a field next to the motorway, several more police were watching from the road side too, after a good 45 mins they re-opoened the motorway for us to proceed the final 3 miles into port, (we were about 6 cars from the front of queue), if I told you that it then took a further 2 hours to get to first border control would you believe me?!, well its true, bearing in mind the road to port was closed for a good 45 minutes the backlog of traffic still waiting to get through passport control was crazy, there were two young ladies in high-vis vests directing cars here, there and everywhere, the chaos was unbelievable, so we ended up miussding the crossing we were 3 + hours early for and put on one a coupke of hours later, there wasn't a seat to be had on the ship and all restaurants were full to capacity within 10 mins of boarding!! We then discover that they have closed the M20 to clear away the damage footbridge from last weekends accident, so we had to figure a diversion out too!
We were supposed to be home by 7.30 - 8pm latest but it ended up being nearer to midnight !!
I then tried to upload all of your photos but some wouldn't work, so I gave up at about I am and decided to reschedule for tomorrow, I am sorry, I don't like letting you all down xxx
On the upside this means you get to see Michele's fantastic pop up boxes in two colour ways, I love them both Michele, so bright and cheerful, would work for any age too! I love how you have layered the stars up on the blue one, looks very professional, thank you for sharing these with us Michele, you were a life saver, I was panicking about not having a post at all today!! Xxxx
I was so shocked at the huge pile if cards and packages that greeted me last night when I got in, I will be opening them today, so excited, like its my birthday all over again!
Apologies again ladies,
Love and hugs
