Saturday, September 19

Pirates Beware!


It has been one of those days today! You know ... one of those days! John and I were going to have our first lay-in in ages! I woke at 7.30 and snuggled down knowing I did n't need to get up for anything in particular. At 8am my sister rings up 'Are you up yet?' NO! So I tell her to call back at a more respectable time and lo and behold at exactly 8.15am the plasterer arrives ... you know the one ... due on Thursday evening ... No lay-in for us then!Jack1

This afternoon has been nice though ... I have been mooching around the local festival with the afore mentioned sister and picking up books and pictures and things that could do with an alter ... they will probably sit in the accumulating pile of stuff that all needs to be altered ... but you just never know when the mood will hit do you?

This card is mainly Rusty Pickle with a Sugar Nellie pirate and Edwin's skull ... In case you were wondering ... I can make other cards but I have kind of promised myself that I will use this set of papers up before I start on another one ... That will be a first!

Anyways I will leave you to enjoy your Saturdays in peace!

Argh, and will you walk the plank if you move on before finishing? Nah, it'll be OK. Lovin the fun cards though. Gotta feel sorry for Edwin though, his head must be really floppy.

What a lovely day, going round a show looking for things to alter - wish I had a Sister, too! If I come across some scull and crossbones bits (I think I have some) shall I send them to you, as I don't think I would have your imagination!
