I bought this stamp set at the NEC simply because I knew that somewhere I had some notecards, bought in Michaels in the USA about two years ago, that had a cable knitted cardstock .......perfect. Or it would have been perfect if I could find them
So what started out as a quick card, turned into a marathon as I turned the house upside down looking for the dollar notecards. They turned up eventually, here's what I made.....
Did I sound a bit smug the other day when I said the Christmas cards were in the mail? It serves me right, but the very next day no fewer than four cards arrived from people I had forgotten about (in fact, I thought one of them was dead, but that's another story........), so it's back to the drawing board for me, or maybe a trip into town to buy some cards for these emergencies. This is known in the UK as sod's law - you think you are done, and something else pops up.....
I have a Max story to share with you. He arrived home from school the other day and announced that he was going to be a carrot in his school Christmas play.
'A carrot?' asked his bemused parents, who spent the next twenty four hours wondering however they would make a carrot costume
He came home from school the next day, saying he was a singer, and had to wear coat, hat, scarf and gloves
How did this confusion come about?
'Well' he explained 'she said I was going to be a carrot singer.........'
Joy to the world..........
See you tomorrow
