Mr Fix It

Evening peeps

My son's housemate is currently an Assistant Stage Manager for Brendan Cole's (from Strictly Come Dancing) show, so he managed to get free tickets for my Mum and son to see him in Canterbury.  Unfortunately, my son couldn't make it, so I went instead.  She was over the moon when the guy in the Box Office handed her a signed programme.

My childhood was spent in the Ballroom dancing world, as my Brother was a British Campion for a few years, so it's something that she still enjoys watching today.  It always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when I see her excited.


Anyway, I have made a quick clean and simple male card tonight.  The digital stamp is called Builder Brian from Digital Delights and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Blue Centura Pearl card stock
Mirror card
Signature Collection Checkerplate embossing folder
Your Next Stamp Stitched Border die
Memory Box Carpenter Tools die set
Memento Summer Sky ink pad
Memento Bahama Blue ink pad

Forever Friends

Evening peeps

I have found out at work today that my colleague worked a 7 hour shift without a break because no one would cover her on the counter.  I am disgusted with this and picked out to one of the Section Leaders that they had two breaks yesterday.  It seems that there is no consideration for the colleagues anymore and they are the ones that work the hardest.


Anyway, I have made a card using just patterned papers and dies tonight.  It's a love theme with the sentiment of Forever Friends.


Materials used are:

White card stock
Double sided adhesive sheet
Patterned papers
Spellbinders Mini Envelope 1 die set
Spellbinders Flutter Love die set
Dazzler
Gemstones
Crystal Glamour Dust glitter


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
