Seven!

Tag07a1106

Seven more sleeps! I can't believe it! Mind you it is not all glamorous tag countdowns though! You will not believe the awful thing I did today ... I am going bright red just thinking about it! My long suffering and very lovely John is my soul mate and best friend but as yet he has n't managed to cough up enough money to buy me a five carat pink diamond so we are not married! Yes I know I am a shallow gold digger :0)Tag07b1106

As you know Dan comes to stay and he very quickly learned that I hate being called Mrs Newman ... clearly that aint my name ... so when I get the telephone sales calls ... I am quite abrupt ... not offensive ... just abrupt!!! Anyways ... Dan has taken to ringing me in a silly voice and asking for Mrs Newman ... as yet I have always worked out it is him! Well today I get a call from someone with what sounded like a dodgy Irish accent asking to speak to Nicholas Elbourne ... the caller says ... "Hello This is Save the Children please can I speak to Nicholas Elbourne?" So I says ... "He's not here ... and how many children are you planning on saving with that dodgy Irish accent Dan???" Oh My Giddy Aunt ... it was n't Dan! On a scale of 1 - 10 I was 192 parts mortified and very very apologetic! The guy was quite sweet ... but I definitely owe them one mahousive donation now!

Tag07c1106 Righty Ho ... the eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that I am on a mission to use every Distress Ink Colour on these 10 tags ... so today's offering is coloured with Faded Jeans; Stormy Sky; Chipped Sapphire; Broken China; Tumbled Glass; Weathered Wood and Dusty Concord. All embellishments are Lord Tim of Holtz's Idea-ology ... you know Tim ... the man that can talk every language known to man in his sleep while writing a War and Peace style novel with just an adornment and a Mini Mister. The rose is of course from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 range ... you know THE Wendy Vecchi ... that I am going to meet in 6 more sleeps!!! Oh yeah and I added a little UTEE heart ... just in case you forgot that I am meeting Suze "the meltpot" Weinberg too!

Look at the time ... I have class preparations still to do for tomorrow ... nothing like cutting it fine! And Anneliese's tag will most definitely have been here a lot earlier than mine :0) And if you feel like joining in with just one tag or all ten ... pop your link in the comments and we will come visit you too!

Good Night Y'all!

Ooo er missus - did you blush brick red or barn door red?

If this doesn't spur your man on to make an honest woman of you, you'll just have to change your name by deed poll

It's amazing that you actually can sleep at night with all the excitement to seeing all those famous people!

Wonderful tag as always. Love it
