Happy New Year Peeps :)

I hope 2017 is happy, healthy and totally wonderful for you all.

For my first post this year, I'm sharing a card using the current Stamp of the Month over at Stamping Bella... Thinkingofyouabella. I really love this stamp, so it was fun to pull her out and play with her again. Remember, she's on discount over at Stamping Bella, but UK Peeps, you can get her at Dies to Die For.  

So, in the spirit of new year and because I've been hearing all kinds of fab things about the health benefits of Coconut Water, I thought I'd get some. It sounds yum, AND it's good for you. Excellent.

Very Understanding Hubby warned caution in the volume of Coconut Water consumed, due to the stories you hear about peeps marooned on dessert islands with nothing but a coconut tree and a toilet roll. We renamed Coconut Water something else that doesn't sound as pretty!

Yesterday, I bought some, remembering to call it Coconut Water and not the other name when enquiring where to locate it in the supermarket. 

Last night, I had my first slurp. Note the use of the word slurp, rather than sip. I was more than a little excited having listened to Very Understanding Hubby banging on for ten minutes about how much sugar was in it. Coconut Water was going to be totally scrummy. He brought over a glass. It glowed like golden sunshine and smelled delicious. Angels floated around me throwing glitter and confetti. My mouth watered in anticipation. *insert scratched record noise*

You know when you go on holiday and accidentally drink an ice cube made with bad water and you leak from both ends? Then you drink one of those disgusting re-hydration sachets that give you salt, vitamins, minerals and the will to move away from the toilet bowl? Coconut Water, now officially called Poo Juice, tastes like that. The sachet stuff, not the toilet bowl. Actually I doubt there's much difference.  Anyway, the point is, Poo Juice does not taste like Pina Colada. Pffft. I've got two litres of this stuff!!

Love this post...you made me laugh outloud right at my desk. I wonder if Poo Juice makes a good rinse on your hair, leaving it smell nice. This is a great card, beautiful coloring, and another gorgeous creation!

Loving your stunning card of course..... but oh....... I'm still giggling at your poo juice story!! That's just the kind of thing I do.... then give what I can't drink/eat to Barry and tell him it's good for him and that I've already had my share!

Ha, ha, ha! That's hilarious Faye. I will avoid Poo juice like the plague. Maybe you should contact the manufacturer about the name change, it may catch on :D.
Fabulous card! Such wonderful colouring. Debra x

Fab colouring, I always love it when you do reds.
Sooo....on to the coconut water debacle. Something that would never happen to me because of course coconuts are one of the few things in the world that I dislike the flavour of. However I think you made a rookie mistake in not googling said coconut water in the first place ...the clues are there....
I got the following....Coconut water is the clear liquid inside young green coconuts. In early development, it serves as a suspension for the endosperm of the coconut during the nuclear phase of development
There you go...anything that has a description that contains the words 'serves as a suspension for the endosperm'is NOT going to be 'scrummy' nuff said :D xx

Love the card by the way!
