Gingerbread Twist

Today's card was so very easy to make, just one sheet of paper printed out, and the zig zag panel cut out then attached with foam pads. A couple of punched snowflakes and a little scattering of gems, and I was done.....




So todays giveaway CD is the fabulous Gingerbread Twist, a collection of Christmas images and papers, with the usual flair and design you always get with Polkadoodles. To win, just leave your name under this post, and you will be in with a chance......you need to leave a comment under every post this week, the random draws will be done separately for each day. Winners will be drawn on Sunday

So I was in Dunkin Donuts today, two very smart looking women wandered outside with their coffee. Obviously career types, dresses, killer heels, those lanyard name ID things around their necks. It was hot, and there wasn't a table with an umbrella free. So they moved their chairs to the shade, then went together to move a table. They tugged, they pushed, they tugged again..... they looked surprised when I pointed out that it was bolted to the ground. I do hope their problem solving skills are better when they are at work!

See you tomorrow

It'a amazing how you seem to notice so much comical things happening around you. Too funny eh?
Love the snow flakes, so much one can do with them to dress up a card. I have a story for you, I was woking in the bank and an older lady dress to perfection walked by, I admired her outfit until I notice a piece of toilet paper stuck to the bottom of her shoe. There went her style. Ha!

Jolanda said...

I love it when people do silly things as long as its not me!

Carol said...

As always, I love your delightful cards Enfys ... and this snowflake card is no exception. And the really nice thing is that it looks easy enough that I might be able to make it to ... "might" (wink).

Oh that CD does look like fun ... thanx for the opportunity to win it!

Gotta love your stories ... I can actually picture those two ladies attempting to move that table, and then feeling extremely foolish when you pointed out that it was bolted to the ground. It had to be a chuckle for you all!

Hugz,
Carol

Love this card En! I can see making many of them. I am doing a craft fair as a fundraiser and cards like these would be terrific! With permission, of course!

I am in awe of your powers of observation! I'm sure it's one reason you are such a gifted designer...but you really don't miss a thing! I so enjoy your stories...and I have done the same thing...but hopefully figured it out a little more quickly than your ladies!

Have a fabulous day!

Pretty card Enfys, lets just hope those women weren't doctors!

Jessica said...

Love that CD! Beautiful card.
Your DD experience reminds me of the first question the service tech's should ask when someone calls for a problem with their machine...Is it plugged in? I was a dispatcher fo said tech's, and was surprised at how many times they came back to the phone and mumbled something like "Um...nevermind." lol Hugs, Jess

eiyiyi said...

Probably smart enough to know why it rains, just not smart enough to come in out of it!

MelodyR aka Ry&MysMom said...

This card looks gorgeous! You made it sound so easy and effortless to create - while it probably would have taken me hours just to choose the right paper LOL!

PS. I love where you hang out - I don't have a Dunkin Donuts close to where I live - it's all Starbucks all over me!

Thanks for the chance to win this CD!

I have often wondered how some of those dressed up office personnel get any real work done particularly when they wear those sky high heels. I guess every office must have some eye candy. your card is simple but oh so elegant.
