Wasps and Penguins


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
