Firstly let me apologise for being so tardy this week. I normally have my blog updated on a Wednesday to go in line with the I ♥ ProMarkers site who update their challenge on a Wednesday morning, but I have really let this week get away from me somehow and here I am at half past one in the morning on what is now officially Saturday updating with a very heavy heart.
"Why so heavy?" I hear you ask. Well, this tale starts last night at work. I was absolutely freezing (I was in short sleeve order and wearing a flimsy body warmer - in borderline Winter weather!) and it didn't help that it was freezing outside, but I was sweating like a lady of the night in a church (that really is the nicest way I can think of putting that phrase!!), I had two heaters on but couldn't feel any of the heat at all. I rushed home and dived into bed and hadn't really emerged until late on Friday afternoon, still feeling particularly sorry for myself. Jo and I settled down to watch Glee and during one of the ad-breaks there was an advert for Steps and how they are preparing for their triumphant return to the stage. I have had my tickets since last September when the tour was announced and my chance to say farewell to one of my favourite pop groups was well and truly galvanised. I reached over to just double check when we were going to see them and there it was - the 11 April 2012!!! Two days ago.
So what, I hear you ask, was all that about being poorly the night before got to do with anything. Well if you thing I was sick before I picked those tickets up, image how I felt just two second after looking at them!! Sick as a parrot doesn't even come close. So now I have to hope they do a twenty year reunion tour and go and see that.
On to this weeks card and this is another new experience for me - White on White. I was a bit stumped about how to do a card using just one colour way, but after looking at Sue Wilson's site PartiCraft, I came away fully inspired and ready to go. The dies are the new Nesties from Spellbinders and they are the Persian Motifs and Accent dies. The background is embossed using a Creative Expressions embossing folder (Lattice) and then I finished it off with some gems and a lovely little Tilda image which I thought fitted the card really well.
So that's my week, hope yours has been a little better and I'm sorry every week seems to come laden with tales of doom and gloom, it's not for lack of trying that I want to bring you stories of puppies and sunshine - it's just the way my cookie crumbles at the moment!
Hope to be back soon, take care,
