What's Your Name, Who's Your Daddy

It's been a while since I've done a card but after work yesterday instead of collapsing on the sofa in front of the idiot box I got busy...quite impressive after a 12hr shift wouldn't you say? There's a die-cut theme at Less Is More so I had a rummage in my collection and came up with this.

Dies - Spellbinders oval nesties
         Marianne's bird on a branch
Stamps - Inkylicious    
   Hobby Art
 Also linking to this week's ATCAS challenge- Texture


Talking of work, we've seen more slebs (I use that term loosely) in the last couple of days than you can shake a stick at.  Well ok, five actually.  Nigel Mansell, Nigel Havers, John Gordon Sinclair, Tess Daly and Vernon Kay. One of them was a bit up themselves.

I'm on nights tonight so I got a lie-in today but yesterday at 4am, Radio 2 woke me up with this tune and I was singing it all day. I love Rod Argent's psychedelic improv bit and imagined doing 60's dancing to it with very swingy hair and go-go boots. It featured in a Tampax advert once...time of the season??

  8. What a beautiful card and well done in getting the energy to make it as shifts are an absolute killer.

    Go on, do spill who the sleb with the overinflated sense of self was.

  14. Great card - even more so after a 12 hour shift! Sorry to hear that you had an up themselves customer, not what you expect really is it. Oh well! I like your restraint in not telling us which one it was. xx

  21. Hello Fiona,

    We are impressed! Crafty we are not, so your handmade card looks not only way beyond any capabilities that we may possess but looks so very pretty. The colours are carefully chosen and beautifully complementary. The different layers you have applied gives the card a dynamic, three dimensional quality that definitely makes it stand out. Perfect!

    We are so thrilled to have found you. We really appreciate the comment you left for us and to which we have made reply. To see the reply, however, you must click on 'load more' twice as we received so many comments on that particular post. Clearly bad manners is a topic many of us have something to say about.

    We noticed in your header picture that you have a bottle of Virol. What foul sounding stuff that would seem to have been. Cure or kill, perhaps! We once had such a pottery bottle but cannot for the life of us place it now. Yours brought back a smile to our faces as we remembered it!

    We have signed up as followers and look forward to many happy returns!

  25. I don't think I could create anything after a 12 hour shift, let alone such a lovely card. My vote for the aresy celeb is Nigel Havers. You have to tell us Fiona! xx
