Hail Hail!

No, I'm not referring to a particular football chant...I'm talking about the weather. Although it was forecast we haven't got any yet...but we did get this....
I didn't dare step outside to take the picture...I decided I didn't want to wash my hair for the 3rd day in a row (oh to have naturally straight hair!) so took this from my tv room. It actually doesn't look as bad as it was. Now it's the monkey's birthday (ever heard that one?) as it's sunny and raining at the same time!



And my poor washing! About 5 minutes before I took this picture the sun was shining hot...and I mean hot. I'm sure it was almost dry hmph. I've left it as I can't be bothered just now...more important things to do ... to show you ... like this card ...

This is one of the new Christmas Nikki images coming soon. So soon it might be Friday woot woot!. I got a bit caught out for a pre-order but you never know ... I might just have one anyway :-D



How gorgeous is Nikki with her sparkly scarf and driving gloves! I just realised I forgot the GA on the headlights...that's how impatient I was to get this posted. Buttercup looks happy in the co-pilot seat lol.


Remember this Jack card
here? I really wanted to make another Joy Fold card but a bigger size and in my favourite square shape so I adjusted the measurements and voila!
Notice anything about my pictures??? They've got blurry edges!! Jeanie came to my rescue...again! I don't know what I'd do without that girl. Apart from being mega talented she is so generous with tips and advice and just so helpful :-D
I've got Chef Ryan Ramsay in my kitchen as I type this. I don't know how many interruptions I've had while trying to type this up lol. Mom...do you have any walnuts...mom...what are Bay Leaves...Mawwwwwwm...how do you turn this blender on! He's on a new diet...The Paleo Diet For Athletes ...and ordered the book yesterday from Amazon which arrived today. It's got a recipe section so now he's cooking himself some lunch (it's just gone 3pm) which might just turn into dinner! Goodness knows what my kitchen will look like when he's finished. But I guess I shouldn't complain...at almost 23 he's finally starting to cook :-D I may get him to move out again soon (his room would be the PERFECT office/workroom heehee)....watch this space!
I'm getting more applications for the DT...I didn't think I'd get ANY takers so I'm pleased as punch. It's going to be so hard to choose...hmmm...I wonder what the Guiness Book of Records record is for the most DT members rolf.
One more thing before I hightail it to the post office....check out this fab card by Sue. It's the first one I've seen using Football Jack apart from my own and I love it!
Thanks for stopping by guys :-D
Catch ya later x

Card looks gorgeous, I might just have to try this folded style, I have them that both sides open but not quite like this. We've had sun, cloud and a light shower here but the sun is out again (for how long who knows!)
Busy busy this afternoon, got more cards to make and off out to post my orders.
How did Ryan's meal turn out? Was it edible lol!? xx
