Have a Mice Day

Hi all
You know I was looking back to when I started my little area of blog land, and realised that my posts used to be so much more interesting than just a card, and how it was made and where to get the bits from. So I made a mental note (no funny jokes now!!) to try to write much more interesting posts.  I wish I was as good at writing posts as Carmelina such a talented writer, holding your interest in each and every post. 

My own dearest husband has a blog (not that he uses it) but his first few posts were really funny, humorous and so made you want to read them. It is a shame he did not continue with it.  

Yesterday I had a class to run at Grimsby Crafts, so 12.15pm came and I kissed the hubby and told him to enjoy his afternoon, jumped in the car with my tools for the day and watched as he very kindly opened the gates for me :)  only to have him close them a few minutes later...........................

You see my little car did not want to start in fact the sound it made was rather pathetic to say the least.  But I did that smile sweetly bit and locked the car and jumped in his - what a girl will do to be chauffeured these days :)  I wish I could own up and say that I had took off the distributor cap (and yes for those wondering, I do know what one is and where it is and could take it off) but that is totally not like me honest "smiling sweetly"

So off we went and I called my friendly mechanic, who very kindly (yes on a Sunday) popped around to see what the issue was and resolved it all whilst I was doing my class.  He is such a darl and then not only was that good service he phoned me this morning to see if it had started for me for my trip to York (yes I said I am here) so I have now booked in my service for next week.  Cannot have my car feeling poorly :)

Anyway moving on before you all fall to sleep, I just had to show you a photo from the class.  Now the reason for showing this is that it has been confirmed in the class that the Grand Calibur is the perfect piece of equipment for trimming up our waists, I must learn to use mine left handed as well as from the right so to even out my toning and the conclusion of this came from watching this impressive lady go :)
Of course if you want to see it for yourself you would have to book in on one of the classes

On that note, here is another card created for the next class at Grimsby Crafts
This will be me after eating all the Easter Treats this weekend :)

This is another twisted easel card. The base and contrast colour is peach card stock, and the papers are Graphic 45.  I have used the MS double heart punch and the smaller of the grand nesties for the image and one of my small nestie circles and the lotus pendant shapeability for the inner return. The ribbon is from stash and coloured with copics as are the pearls.  The flowers are new in at Grimsby Crafts and come ready glittered up. I have used the Forest Moss distress ink and a corner punch from a Prima pack of clear stamps. All products available at Grimsby Crafts.

I think that about does it for now, besides I have a large piece of chocolate cake at the side of me that says "eat me" so I just have to obey it. (you would I know it)

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
Cupcake Craft - Lots of Layers
Karen's Doodles - Lots of Layers
Stamp with Fun - Birthday
There is magic in the air - colour challenge
2 Sisters challenge - Bingo (diagonal punches and die cuts, glitter and glimmer and flowers)

I would also like to say hello to all my new followers and for those of you that joined me through the OVA Candy good luck in the draws.  Thank you to you all for the lovely comments, I appreciate everyone of them.

Enjoy the rest of the week

Sorry to hear bout the auto trouble, my favorite part is the "smiling sweetly" that I have to say is exactly the way I picture you. By the way house mouse is one of my favs and I need some of that cake too! Share up! Great job!

Posts do vary don't they, some are too short especially when I want to know what a product is and others are too long, going into so much detail about how everything on the card is made. We only have so long to blog otherwise we'd never make anything. I love funny posts though and yours always make me smile. Hope the cake was good, coz the card is lovely. I must make a twisted easel again. Love the soft colours and the fun image. Marianne x
