My Knight in Shining Armour!

Who Knew! I spent my life expecting my knight in shining armour to be on a horse wih ... erm ... shining armour and pretty much being a ringer for a certain Mr Darcy!
Well ... when my car broke down last night ... in the dark ... an hour from home ... lo and behold Green Flag sent me a knight! Can you imagine my surprise when he arrived with a recovery lorry for a horse ... the only thing shining was indeed a piercing ... and he had swapped his shining knight head gear for a knitted bobble hat! He was about a foot shorter than he should have been and aprroximately a decade older! To be fair ... he could n't have looked less like Mr Darcy if he had tried ... but I was still oh so pleased to see him! And he got me and my car home safely ... so I should n't complain!
So ... yes people ... after spending a very lovely day in the wonderful Lin's shop and then a very lovely evening with the lovely Karen, the wonderful Lin and Mrs Paperartsy ... gets in my car to go home ... get a few miles up the road and then the blooming car died! And boy was it cold!
Right ... well that is that ... here are a few more demo samples from the weekend ... first up we have a THE Wendy Vecchi Art Part ... my favourite Art Part to be precise ... I adore these little watches!
Second up we have a tag using my favourite Lord Tim of Holtz stamps ... love those gentlemen! You know Tim ... the man that can walk across the Atlantic Ocean while playing Beethoven's fifth on a harmonica with just a Townscape die cut and a memo pin.
That is me for now ... I had to walk to the nail bar today ... fair wore me out I can tell you ... sooooo disappointed when I left the building and remembered I had to walk home as well! So a quiet night with a stack of invoices for me!

These are both gorgeous creations Linda. Love the Art Part watch!

Glad you got home safely. Very scary breaking down in the dark when you are on your own.

Hope your wheels are working again soon so you don't have to burn any more shoe leather.

Bit rude of them not to send a real knight wasn't it! Knights are a bit like firemen, never as gorgeous in the flesh as they are in our dreams :)

Gorgeous samples as always. Sorry to have missed you but Mr bank manager gave me a choice this month. Fix the shower and go to work not being smelly or spend at Ally Pally. Colleagues voted for shower, damn them!!
