In My Favour

Hello everyone.

The postie swung by my way today........LOOK!!


Needless to say...I sat and drooled most of the evening...this gorgeous candy arrived from Scotland from the lovely Tracey. The craft fairy was smiling down on me!!!

I had a great day yesterday...full of fun and hilarious moments.
My work can be so funny,and the elderly [God bless them] can have you in stitches with their wonderful ways,stubborn ways,funny ways,and yep!.. annoying ways.
My lady[of 7 days a week] scratched her ankle in bed with her toe nail, just a pin prick, but she nust have beld and smeared it onto her other ankle, and her shin, on her nightie etc,and when I got there she had her leg up on a stool, and was adamant that she was bleeding to death through her veins.

I put my glasses on to look, and she told me I was blowing air on her leg, dont touch it,she might start bleeding again. I tired to tell her, it was just a nick, and if I cleaned her leg up with warm water and dettol, the blood would go away and we could see the wee hole...WELL...wee hole indeed, theres no hole, its the veins...they are leaking blood.
I noticed the blood was dried and brown so had been there awhile, but, in her mind if she stood, her veins would bleed again.
This went on for my half hour, had other clients, had to go, and she said she would press the BUTTON....get the professionals I left...and she did...pressed the button, they came and took her to hospital..cleaned her leg...and took her home. Oh!! dear...I have to face the music this morning, and hear all about her adventure...but I will NOT be shown the pin prick, I will be told they stopped the veins from's a worry, I tell you.

Rightio...onto my card, which covers a few fact ..surprised myself with that.

There he is...KK image, coloured with pencils,added the last of the old sack I found, leather strip tied in a loose bow, cute orange feathers with spots on them,and the tiny lizard up the top, boy, that was hard cutting out.nearly put a butterfly there, but it had to be a boy card, so I coloured the lizard and plopped him there..sentiment from the computer, font was called bamboo.leaf die cut for the lizard to sit on.

Challenges I would like to enter are:
Sir stamp alot   [anything goes]
do it with digis  [spots or stripes]
Kenny K   [anything goes]
Ladybug crafts  [summer birthdays]

Done with minimal confusion, so ready for a new day...more lectures...more cleaning...

Have a wonderful day/evening, and I will see you all soon.
