Here's one of two doily cards I made for Scrappy-go-Lucky today, head over there to see my 'to a deer friend' doily card
This one uses the little bird on a branch doily, and the circle border is from the same cartridge. The doily was cut at 3 1/2", and the border at 1 1/2"

Well, we are back from our trip, we stayed around beautiful St Augustine, after deciding that the drive up to Savannah would be a bit of a jaunt. We only got lost three times, and I discovered two new things:
1. My sister cannot understand American accents at all. I don't know what it is with her, but she keeps making the most inappropriate replies to questions. So a server in a restaurant, seeing her plate sitting there empty says 'All done?' 'No thank you' she replies, smiling sweetly at him. 'Okay' he mutters, walking away shaking his head slightly. Turns out she thought he was asking her if she wanted more. This went on over and over again, I had to act as translator everywhere we went, although of course we did giggle about it!
2. I have discovered that I would make a hopeless tour guide. We bought tickets for one of these trolley bus things that you hop on and off, to see the sights. One guide kept imploring us to be careful not to hang any of our body parts out of the trolleybus! I quickly realised that I would have no patience whatsoever with Hank and Doris, who dithered around 'shall we get off here honey' dangling a body part or two off the side of the bus so that the driver couldn't move on. I would have yelled 'get your body parts off my flippin bus'
I would also get very very very bored of telling everyone the same old stories over and over again, dozens of time a day. I would be fired very quickly, for trying to rewrite history. I just know that I would not be able to resist adding some colourful anecdotes, salacious details, and scandalous gossip - none of them true of course, but it could make the day quite enjoyable for everyone - maybe even Hank and Doris would have folded their body parts back in to hear more.
See you tomorrow
