Here's another card made with those pretty die cut borders that I picked up in the wedding aisle of Hobbycraft.....
Here's a question. Every time I write a post, blogger underlines stuff that I know is correct, irritating. It just doesn't accept English English. I thought of this when I was stamping the sentiment for my rainy day card for Letraset yesterday - you make me happy when skies are grey......clearly a UK stamp, in the USA it would be gray. So I write flavour, you write flavor, I write fibre, you write fiber, I write humour, you write humor, I write licence, you write license...............and so on.
It occurred to me that all my American blog friends must think that I am rubbish at spelling, and it set me musing about how this came about. Did the pilgrim fathers hop off the Mayflower and say 'thank heavens we left the old country, now we can do away with the ridiculous U in colour, it's no use to anyone, and frankly little Isiah needs a bit of help with his reading. Let's make it easy.....' Or was there some high level meeting in the White House, where Abe Lincoln said 'I am issuing a decree that in future we will write words exactly how we say them. Enough of this British nonsense. We are American'
I have to say, that American spellings make a lot more sense than our British versions, but one thing always bugs me when I go over the pond. Why on earth do you all call herbs 'urbs' - what's happened to that poor little H? I mean, you say 'hearts' and 'here' and 'happened'. What did
Enough of my ramblings. Have a great start to the weekend, enjoy Valentines day. See you tomorrow x
