Good Morning Ladies,
From a very wet Wiltshire once again, I am just about sick of this cold and damp weather, it's playing havoc with my joints and everywhere looks so miserable, mud and huge puddles everywhere, which is making the girls nervous driving after Lucy drove me to 'Groovi Club' last week, she had no option to drive through a huge puddle that covered the entire road, she did everything properly, driving through slowly while keeping her revs high (as we had no idea how deep it was(its a tiny country lane), we got about half way through when there was an almighty bang, she had driven into the most enormous pothole that sounded like it had broken the wheel off the car! We got through the puddle (well pond is a better description) and then got out to check all was ok, which thankfully it was, it really shook her up though bless her and I felt awful too. A similar thing happened to Becca last year where she did exactly the same but if popped her tyre and cracked her alloy wheel, I made her claim from the Council, which took forever, you know the chap on the phone actually said that it is easier for them to keep paying out repairs on peoples car than it is for them to pay out and get the roads repaired, this was in Oxfordshire, Wiltshire roads around us seem even worse, it may be because along the road opposite Fairford there are a lot of huge quarry pits, which means there are always huge lorries carrying the rocks etc away, having said that they don't come around our village and it's terrible around there too.
Funnily enough we have another 'Beer' Themed card today, Karen smiled when she saw that I had shared the Guinness Themed Christmas card that Michele had made for her husband Phil yesterday, as she had sat on Monday and made the 'Beer' themed card above! What were the chances of that coincidence?!
The beer mugs/EF was a freebie from Papercraft Essentials. The aperture and sentiment is from a bargain die by Crafti Potential (that MICHELE told us about).
I edged the embossing with black soot DI I used CE Fluffy Stuff for the froth.
Such a brilliant idea for a card for a man Karen, love the background and the die cut sentiment aperture, brilliant design idea, thank you so much for sharing it with us today.
You know what they say about 'Great Minds Thinking Alike' !!! XXX
Still trying to get all the decorations etc up here, as well as having to make envelopes and inserts for my Christmas cards, lesson learnt there, next year I will be thinking more about the finished size of the card, making sure it fits into a standard envelope. So thats my plans for today.
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs,
