Happy Saturday everyone, and cheerio January! What a grotty month that has been, but February is starting with a little promise as we have beautiful sunshine today, even if it is a tad windy.
Last night on the other hand. Good grief. Rain had been forecast, and by crikey the forecaster got it right. Sweeping in from the west after dark. Yep, it certainly did that. And my lift home was otherwise engaged so I had to battle with public transport. So, picture the scene if you will. Howling gale, torrential rain, an office promotional golf umbrella, and a small squirrel. If anyone had a camera they would have been guaranteed the £250 from You've Been Framed.
I made it onto the bus, with only a moderate struggle, but getting off again at this end the wind was behind me. The umbrella is huge, and I'm 5'3". So it was a little bit like windsurfing but without the sea. Along one stretch of road I was actually being forced to jog along. It was either that or take off I suspect. And of course the brolly only covers so much, and when I finally made it to the front door (I had to plan carefully the point of crossing the road in case I was blown past and into the cul-de-sac), I had cold water running down my legs and into my shoes. I went to get changed into something warm and left my trousers steaming on a radiator!
Anyhoo, today is better, and for so many reasons.
- It's Saturday
- It's the weekend
- I'm not at work
- I can play
And play I have. Totally Papercrafts are asking for CAS cards this time, and you know I love my CAS!
Stamp is LOTV James Butterflies
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are all from the same Papermania Capsule Collection
(thank you Netty)
Sentiment is also LOTV
Gold edged rope border is from stash
MFT DieNamics Banner Stax dies
I love how this simple use of two papers can add interest to a CAS card without cluttering it, and regular readers will know that it is a layout I use a lot.
Hope you are having a super day
Hugs to all
