I hope that you are all well, I was relieved to read that we aren't the only ones that aren't organised as far as Christmas is concerned, at the moment I'm not to worried about it, but I bet as soon as we hit December NEXT week!! I will be starting to worry!
Yesterday flew by, Sophie and I went to have our hair coloured in the morning and we were waiting for the Sky engineer to come to fix our tv service, we haven't been able to watch a few channels for a few weeks, this last weekend it got a lot worse, bet eeh, the make you do so many things before you can get to the 'call an engineer ' stage, we re-booted, reconfigured, re...put all the cables in and out again, then we got the booking! I said to Paul 'you are sure the Dish is ok on the side if the house, he said yes its fine, not obscured by anything!! The chap arrived, I showed him where the dish was and waited for him to come in to look at the Sky Box and Tv, well he came straight back in and said I know the problem, I said oh, is something wrong with the dish?, no he said the dish is fine, its the very tall Budlea bush infront of it thats causing the issue, (I my head I was shouting Paul's name), anyway he said he would give the box a thorough check over which he did, he even gave me a new controller, that you talk in to !! Technology EH!! He was a lovely man, he stayed and had a cup of tea and gave me a really useful tutorial, so I am now the Sky Guru !!🤣😂🤣
Today's card is my favourite colour combination, I made a Poinsettia using vellum with my Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia stamp and die set to create the components for my Poinsettia. I used Old Olive card to make the base card, I then used a Phil Martin die to cut the scalloped edge rectangle for the decorative part at the top of my card. I stamped 'Seasons Greetings ' at the bottom of the card base and heat set with white embossing powder (same as Poinsettia). I then added my Poinsettia, starting with the Old Olive foliage, finishing with the vellum layers, I tried a few different options for the centre of the Poinsettias but most looked too heavy, so I used 4 small pearls.
I hope that you all have a good day, wrap up warm my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
