It's been a while since I made a black and white card, always a favourite of mine. This one is really simple, the papers are anonymous ones that have been hanging around for ages. I cut the circles for the flower with the George cartridge and the Cricut expression, and roughed the edges up a little with sandpaper. The leaves were handcut
I will be picking the winners for the Promarkers later today - pop back tomorrow to see if you won
I see that the President of the USA is visiting the UK over the next couple of days. Apparently he has an entourage of 400 with him. 400? Good grief. These include a few chefs apparently. Chefs? Do they not think that he will be fed in Buckingham Palace? There's me, I manage to cross the Atlantic regularly with an entourage of one - my chief luggage lugger Mike. I have been known to do the journey with no entourage at all, just me and the inevitably overweight luggage. Now if I had my way, in a perfect world, I would have my personal hairdresser, a make up artist, my ladies maid, a couple of chefs........until the world is perfect, I will just have to rely on smiling sweetly at the nearest available bloke 'would you mind terribly just giving me a hand with this suitcase....careful, it's a bit heavy'.
Talking of cases - yes, it's that time again, the packing, the anxious lifting of cases to assess the weight, the agony when you can't fit it all in. I always take ridiculous choices of clothes back with me as well, flushed and warmed by the hot Florida sun, I tend to forget that in the UK I rarely, if ever, wear shorts, we don't have a pool so I really don't need ten swimsuits, I probably will never wear the stuff until it is time to pack it all back into the poor old suitcase to lug it back to Florida again. Life is a circle........
See you tomorrow
