Hope you're all having a lovely day watching the river pageant and celebrating! GRRRR I've been stuck on the settee with my foot propped up on cushions - I have cellulitis and my right foot resembles something like a red balloon... complete with water blisters on top - yuck!! But I'm on with the anti-biotics now... so hopefully it should feel slightly better tomorrow.... hope so as we're supposed to be going to a Jubilee Proms night!
So..... as I needed to do SOMETHING crafty today in the short time I could be upright, I shot up (well limped and hopped actually) to my craft room, and dug out a freebie stamp from Pink Petticoat that I got with a mag last year. I saw some similar cards on Mandy's blog - A Little Space of My Own - so thought I'd try my take on them - thanks for the idea Mandy. They're very self explanatory..... stamped, coloured, glittered, then punched with a tool, and cord or yarn put through and knot tied! Very simple, but effective I think!
What did you think of the pageant? Wasn't she a trooper standing all that time??? AND WOW to that choir who sang for her in that downpour! British eccentricity at it's best! I can image even with the rain, it would be a magical experience for all that took part.
And talking of rain, my daughter Emma is currently in North Cornwall..... she's driving the van which is providing the support for a group of cyclists from York who set off this morning from Land's End - and they are cycling to John O'Groats in a week!!! She has told me it's bucketing it down, but it's still not stopping them.... at least she's driving the van - on her own, but dry! They're raising money for some wonderful charities - Yorkshire Air Ambulance being one, and also to raise money for treatment for a little boy with Neuroblastoma (not sure I've spelled that right). I hope they do really well - and even think Emma's task is hard - driving that far!!! If anyone would fancy donating just a little, their page is: https://www.justgiving.com/teams/LEJOGTeam2012. I'm sure they'd be very grateful. Their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/#!/LEJOGTeam2012
And lastly... our hols!! I've not been able to get much on my blog about them up to now..... suffice to say we had a wonderful time until the last couple of days when it rained... I love the South of France with all it's opulence.... and there is something magic about Antibes... Think I should have one of those gin palaces that are moored in the marina there... can you imagine having craft sessions on one of those????? YES!!
Sorry for being picture heavy....... I'm going to save the kitchen till my next post..... and believe it or not, it's NEARLY finished! April 16th it was ripped out, so it can't come soon enough!
Big hugs and have a lovely couple of bank holiday days!
