21 April 2011

The day after the day before.


Thanks to all for your messages of concern and support. I can confirm that there was no damage to either Sweet Cheeks or The Copics throughout the production of yesterday's post!

I had to go to the Doctor's for a new patient check this morning. Boring, but necessary, the usual stuff.

Blood pressure, a bit high. Doesn't she read my Blog?! CopicGate would be enough to shoot anyone's BP through the roof! ;)

Do I smoke? Does that include what comes out of my ears?

Do I drink? Occasionally, quite rarely, which got me a bit of a funny look. Again, doesn't she read my Blog? I'm an athlete and train regularly in The Bat Cave so need to be in full control of my colouring mediums.

Do I try and eat three meals a day? Oh Yes! I make sure I have a doughnut for breakfast, a cupcake for lunch and some pie for tea. I'm so good, I even have a vegetable snack (cocoa beans) before bed.

Do I exercise regularly? Hello! How many times do I have to ask? Does she not read my Blog? She's obviously never experienced me getting from one side of the house to the other when Sweet Cheeks and Copics are alone in the same room. Really, are these trick questions?

Anyway, I made this card last night, for the All that Glitters Challenge at MMCS, whilst 'in training'! I not sure about it, but it's growing on me and boy, did I have a good time on the fumes from my glitter (aka happy) spray. Ooh, good job she didn't ask about that, what exactly do they check your 'sample' for...?

Recipe
Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Spring Feast; First Edition
Image: Swingtime; Tatty Button
Colouring: Copics
Other: Flowers & Seam Binding; Wild Orchid Crafts, Glitter Spray; Crafters Companion

Fab card, Faye - love the glittery effect and the layout. Yummy papers too! I've got my medical tomorrow and apparently I keep confusing the right amount of alcohol comsumption and the right amount of exercise - G&T/glass of wine - regularly; exercise - occasional (I can sprint when I need to get the last flapjack in the canteen!) xxx

Donna said...

Oh my goodness - how could you not be sure about this card - it's totally fabulous! The colours, the layout, the image - everything about it is just gorgeous.

I always have a giggle too when I read your posts! Never a dull moment at you house! x

Ooh it's GORGEOUS!!! Love this image... had it in my mitts recently but put it back... but I NEED it now. I've got these papers and love them (am banning myself from buying more very soon) and all your sparkle looks fabby :o) Lisa x

Terry Oulboub said...

*laughing* Oh Fluff, I always have a full day after visiting your blog. I am able to view a most delightful portrait infused with gorgeous designer papers and a magnificent image on display having been deliciously inked up by your talented hands. This little darling is absolutely wonderful with lovely colors and prettiest blooms to accent that fab image! Then I get to read more accounts of the adventures of darling baby, Sweet Cheeks. I just love this little boy and what a lovely book his adventures have made (just waiting to buy the hard bound copy you know). I laughed about the oven on high and the Copics duly inside awaiting the appropriate burn. HAHAHA I'd hate for it to have happened but boy what a great story! I just love it! :-) Glad you and the baby are fine though. :)

Keep It Sweet and Simple said...

Ha! Ha! You crack me up! I have a bit of old rope in the garage, that you can use to tie Sweet Cheeks to a chair - I used it all the time when my girls were younger. I'm pretty sure it's not illegal!!
STUNNING card - if you let me know what glitter you used, I will courier the rope to you, ASAP!!
