Talk about a shock!!! In the nicest possible way.
Posted by manicstamper on March 22, 2007
Well I had one of the nicest shocks I have ever had today.
There I was at work sat making a card. I’d heard someone come through the door but as the boss was seeing to customers while I finished the card I hadn’t looked up as I usually do. All of a sudden this voice says ‘hello Sheila’ and you will never guess who was standing there………our Wendy (AnnTaurus).
Well I just about fell off my chair I can tell you.
Wendy and I have met before………last year at a meeting of forum members from Crafts by Carolyn but this was a total surprise.
We had a smashing chat and I also got to meet her ‘knight in shining armour’ who is absolutely fab. I don’t think I have ever seen anyone smile so much…generally men who come into craft shops don’t do smiling much………lol!!!
A great finish to the week……..thanks Wendy………come back soon.
I’m having to share a card I made some time ago today as I had such a lot to do when I got home from work.The stamp is by Paper Artsy and is amongst my most favourite.I usually use quite subdued colours with these stamps but the paper I have used was the last of a sheet that needed using.This card evolved over several hours as I put the paper onto the card and then laid it to one side, then I did the stamping and laid it to the side again.The letters have been cut from various materials using a Sizzix alphabet…….the ‘n’ is an upside down ‘u’ and just to add a touch of quirkiness I replaced the ‘i’ with the keyhole….also a Sizzix die.
Well I still have quite a bit of work to do (just taking a break for five minutes) so I had best go and get it done as if I finish it tonight I should get all day to play tomorrow…….yipeeeeeeeee!!!
Bye for now
