Well here I am again - this should have been my first post today but when I looked it was still in draft - wondered where it was when I checked my blog! I'm just using the insanity excuse that's the only one I can come up with - I'm seriously losing the plot!! I think I'm on the countdown to my holidays at the end of the month. So if you're a DT buddy of mine - beware I'm not responsible for my actions until the end of August lol - DT cards, they may turn up or maybe not, maybe the right day or week - maybe not!!
Anyway - here's what should have been my first post today.....
Today's challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges is hosted by the fabulous
she's one of our wonderful new teamies and has chosen the theme
Rhinestones and Pearls
It's as simple as that!! I rarely make a card without at least one of these shiny embellies so it must be an easy one.
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Crimson Cloud
Here is my card for this week using rhinestones on a very simple thank you card
- or as my daughter has called it
- the Brownie card!!
I'm sure you're as puzzled by the description as I was when she first said it - but for anyone who was a Brownie - well its obvious. In the Brownies when they congratulate anyone they say (or always used to say - I presume it's never changed) "Well done, Well done, Well done" accompanied by a sequence of clapping, and the person replies "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you" also with the same clapping sequence as you can see there are three "thank yous'" on my card .....so its a Brownie card ha ha - see told you I was quite mad. I'm sure there will be two very distinct groups of readers of this blog either nodding and smiling - "oh yes I remember that" or - "haven't got a clue what she's talking about - she is mad"
Card punched with - Martha Stewart zig zag border punch
Ribbon - Berrisfords blue gingham
