Those, blogging friends, are the sounds I made after having my Frangipani wrap at the Health Club / Spa my friend and I went to yesterday. Of course, and this is typical of my life, the sounds I made when we left and my car decided to blink lots of orange warning lights at me wasn't so much sounds as more a word (or string of words) none of which are repeatable!!
So as you may have gathered from that opening paragraph yesterday was a day of mixed fortunes. The couple of hours at the Health Club were wonderful, if a little strange. As I spent most of an hour covered in green goo and wrapped up like a turkey ready to be cooked! It was so nice to pummelled, scrubbed and left to sleep - otherwise known as a Frangipani Wrap. I also had a 1-2-1 make-up session with a nice young girl to get some tips on the very 90's time warp that I am stuck in with my make-up. I have to say, all modesty to one side, I did look very nice when I came out of that session - although Emily slightly worried me when she asked what the black goo was on my eyelids!!!
Then when we came out of the Club, having a had a very nice lunch and meaning to go into the local town and do a bit of shopping, my car decided to let me know, in the nicest way possible, that my power steering; ABS and engine were failing!!! After ringing hubby, the trip into town was cancelled and I drove home very carefully. Thankfully the sparks came out today, plugged his fancy computer into the car and charged us £40 to say it was a glitch! At least hubby didn't moan - for once ;-)
So there is my saga - I do hope I haven't bored you and now onto the reason you all visit my blog, probably, is today's card:
Detail shot of image:
Pollycraft digi stamp: Kiki Cakes, coloured with my Promarkers and a touch of Stickles on the cakes.
Die-cut with a Go-Kreate die and chalked whilst still in the die for definition.
I don't know what the papers are, as they were very kindly given to me by a blogging friend (thank you Kat,).
The swirls are a Marianne Creatable die.
Message is from a Pink Parfait set from Papermania.
Crystals are from Hobby House.
So there that was my day yesterday, today nothing much to report, tomorrow I'm off to get my hair cut and hopefully I should be back soon with another card.
Off to wander through all your blogs now.
A challenge, or two:
