Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and enjoying a break in the weather, it was chilly today but no rain.
Sophie and I were huddled in the craft room with the radiator on full blast, its lovely having someone to chat to while crafting, or in Sophie's case 'animating'!
Oh I must get the 'Soap Box' out for a mini rant, I went online to order tickets for the Craft show at Farnborough on Saturday, I looked for information on Concessionary tickets for disabled guests/carers but there was nothing anywhere, so I emailed the organisers and got a reply to say that they don't do any 'Concessionary tickets but the 'Person pushing the wheelchair goes free'! Why they don't publish that information I don't understand, I wonder how many people have paid not realising.
Also went we first attended this show about 3 years ago, it was £4 and indoor parking beside the entrance was free.
The tickets were advertised at £7.50 each, so I added 3 to my basket, got to checkout and the cost was £27, I rechecked my basket and scratched my head, (no, I don't have nits)! By my reckoning 3 × £7.50 = £ 22.50 right??!!
The cheeky beggars show the price EXCLUDING VAT, have you ever bought tickets anywhere that didn't include VAT??
I guess it's to make the tickets appear cheaper, the tickets were in fact £9 each. I hope the show is worth the price hike!!!
I will say that I answered a ladies question on their Facebook group, she enquired about wheelchair hire, I knew they did loan them as Margaret used one last year, so I explained that to her and made sure that i made it clear that anyone pushing a wheelchair goes free! Information that should have been available to anyone!! rant over! Soap box stowed!
Today's card was made using Categories:
I used stamps and die cuts from the SU 'Cake Soiree' suite to create the cake image, the 'texture' comes from the embossed background and the Ribbon is silver edged satin ribbon which I used to tie in with the silver on the Cake stand and the silver mat/layer.
A simple card, but I think it works, the touches of silver give the card a touch of luxury.
I hope you enjoy your dsy ladies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
