Cool Company


I know i am sad, but i really like Michael Buble (have managed to see him 3 times in concert) and i so wanted tickets for next July at the O2, but try, as i might i have been unable to get any at the Face Value and i'm gutted - but although the concerts are all sold out, you can get tickets but they are 3, 4, 5 times more than the Face Value and i refuse to give anyone more than their costs, just so they make a profit out of a true fans misfortune of not being able to get tickets.

I have used this stamp before, but i don't think with quite so loud colours !!! and so minimal too, the papers are My Minds Eye - Colourful Christmas, i've cut out the image and pinky paper with Labels 8 Nesties, the snow is Aleen's Snow (from The Glitter Pot) the sentiment is LOTV, and the pom pom is from The Ribbon Girls.

Today's Card And Challenges :

ABC Christmas - where they are up to 'V is for Vibrant Colours'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes - with the option of Christmas'

Sweet Sketch - where they are up to Sketch No: 179, but are recycling and are using No: 109

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where November's Challenge is 'Cute Christmas'

Without Words - where November's Challenge is ' Whizz Bang (Bright Colours)'

Penny Black At Allsorts  - where November's Challenge is 'Any Die Will Do'

I've added another photo, as i don't think the first one shows up the snow

Image - Penny Black - 'Cool Company'
Papers - My Minds Eye - 'Colourful Christmas'
Sentiment - LOTV
Pom Poms - The Ribbon Girls
Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x

Sorry to hear you can not get tickets for the concert. It is so ridiculous how expensive tickets to a concert can I am with you about not even paying more money.
You card is just adorable. Love the fun papers and you cute image. Happy you could join us at SSW.

Fab fun card Sam - love the vibrant colours and the pom pom trim is lush :o)
Sorry you didn't manage to get your concert tickets - I agree that it's not fair for people to charge 3 times and more for tickets they so obviously bought just to make a profit!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend

What a shame about the concert tickets Sam, they so often sell out far too quickly. I had exactly the same when I wanted some to see Andrea Bocelli in Italy last year.

I love the alternative colour palette to your pretty Christmas card, it works perfectly with the cute image.

Thanks so much sharing your creativity with us at Penny Black and More challenge this month.

Aww what a shame about the tickets. Agree with you re the inflated prices people then sell them for. I think I have this stamp or one similar, love it.

Hi Sam

Fabby little snowmen!! They make for a great Christmas card.

Sorry to read about the concert tickets. It just doesn't seem fair that people buy them just to sell them on for profit! I hope a ticket magically appears at the proper price for you somewhere so that you don't miss out.

Thank you for your comment on the NOEL stamp. I hadn't seen it used as a LOVE stamp. Will definitely have to try that idea out!! Thanks for letting me know.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
