Wasps and Penguins

Hello!

Well I'm glad the weekend is over ... Boy what a day Saturday was ... It started off ok ... I prepared the roast, did the baking, cleaned the house and did the laundry and spent a few hours with my friend Beryl ... After Beryl left Pat came over to help me hand cut a lot of things for my Thursday Group this week ... I thought we'd have a nice relaxing time chatting and cutting together ... WRONG!

I set up the Cameo to cut some holly leaves for Pat ... The new blade I'd put in just kept on unscrewing itself every time I tried to cut ... It chewed the paper and created havoc ... Several attempts later I gave up and put an old blade in. In the course of this somehow a wasp got in to my room - I know! Who knew they'd still be around in November? Well, I tried unsuccessfully to get it out when the lights fused and there we were in the dark with an angry wasp on the loose.
Eventually I fixed the lights and got the wasp out only to find another one around ... Now all this time Pat carried on cutting away not a bit fazed until suddenly the wasp swooped down on her and stung her arm!
Suffice to say that we didn't eat dinner till 8pm and I was soooo glad to get to bed that night!

Yesterday was a whole lot calmer and I took a little time to make another Christmas card ... It's those Pink Petticoat penguins again with some new purchases the stitched rectangles dies and the stitched stars dies by Lil' Inkers


I also got the little banner die too - all these are available at Make The Day Special Store for my UK friends...


In case your wondering about that 'snow' ... Well, it's not a stencil, it's this stuff


Snow writer by DecoArt which I've had for the longest time and cost me a whole


It's still available and probably about £2.50 now but still worth it


I'm entering this card at Catered Crop where there is an "Anything Goes" challenge


Have a lovely week my friends ...
I'll be back tomorrow for the City Crafter Challenge ... 

Thanks for looking in on me

Now that is one darling card, Ros! Love the colors & your design & the Snow Writer is great--have to look for that! I hope your friend's arm isn't too bad today. I would have been freaking out with that thing in the room--I don't do wasps--LOL!

Think of it this way Ros, you and your friend Pat most certainly have had a little adventure ;-) Oh sometimes things all go awry, don't they? Except for your card, of course, for that's a regular beauty with these adorable penguins! Hugs, Ira x

Oh Ross, what an adventure you had on Saturday.... hope you got the Cameo sorted! Your card is lovely and will make someone very happy come Christmas!

I'll have to remember if I ever come to visit you that it will most likely turn into an adventure. LOL Poor Pat. I hope her arm is much better. I am loving your sweet penguins and of course, since I am such a stitched die addict, I am in heaven with the die cuts. So cute! Hugs!

Geesh these penguins are so stinkin'cute (forgive me my language...) I love that snow too; I am on the hunt for it now here in the Netherlands. If I can't find it I have to bringt it home next year :)
XXXXX

Oh, these penguins are cute! But what an ordeal you had on your afternoon... I heard about the wasps (and bees etc.) being still around due to the warm temperatures... and that especially the bees need feeding because they burn too much energy finding too little to eat in order to survive this confusion.
