Poinsettias, The Sequel of the Sequel . . . . . .


Good morning all. Hope everyone's fettle is fine? Happy St Patrick's Day to those who celebrate.

Still running with Christmas but a more ornate one this time (and those pesky poinsettias and holly flourish again lol!!).
I love the purple card. It was from a craft show but no make/brand on the wrapper.


Ingredients
Cream and purple card
Silver mirror card
SB Labels 18
SB Layered Poinsettias
Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish
Sheena Douglass holly embossing folder
Crafters Companion sentiment
Memento Dew Drop Grape Jelly ink
Silver Krylon pen (for the veins on the poinsettia bracts and on the pearls)
Pearlage


I always thought purple and gold went well together but purple and silver looks just as good, methinks.

Well, today's the day again. Not looking forward to it (well, you'd have to be a masochist to be looking forward to it) but it needs to be tried again so try we must.

To be honest, if they told me standing on my head, butt naked, flower strategically placed, whistling the National Anthem, in the middle of Trafalgar Square, would help me, I'd do it (now that would get my own back on those bloomin pigeons lol!!!)

Bridget, they do it under sedation but last time they didn't give me enough, I felt it and screamed "Owwwwww" lol!!!
Marion, don't get falling over with your cross legged walk lol!!!
Maureen, I wouldn't dare be disapproving, lol!!! I do love the elegance of the DL but I'm tight as a fish's oojit and want my moneys worth out of Royal Mail lol!!!

Thank you for all your well wishes and prayers. I do thank you from the heart of my bottom.

Will let you know how it goes as soon as I can and apologies if I don't get round to visiting blogs for a few days.

  11. Hello Ang,
    Absolutely stunning card today.
    I hope everything goes well and that you are sorted once and for all. Chin up, big girl knickers on and show them how a lady behaves. You know we are behind you all the way, I'm certainly not in front as they may decide to pick me!!
    Now we know where Flash gets his ideas. Butt naked in Trafalgar Square whistling the National Anthem, oh that I'd like to see ha ha.
    love Maureen xxx

  21. Good afternoon Ang, a beautiful card, loving the colour combination and design.
    I had to laugh at your Trafager Square comment ... have not seen anything on the News. Take it that was not one of your options. Hope all went well yesterday and you will soon be "ticking" away nicely again soon.
    Have a good weekend
