A Wish For All Tme


We seem to be jinxed in this house, since we have come home from our holiday -

1) TV remote control no longer works - so everytime we have to switch it off / on or adjust the volume, we have to get up and do it !!

2) Hoover motor blew up and am off to buy a new one tomorrow at John Lewis, looks like we are going for a Miele one

3) a new jar of mayonnaise fell out of the cupboard - glass and mayonnaise everywhere and no hoover to pick up the little of glass either !!

Below is a better photo of the embossing on the image and on the blue paper too

The shape of this card is a 'Front Step' and it was shown in the Quick Cards magazine last July and i've been meaning to make it for ages.  The image is : Penny Black - 'A Wish For All Time / 3907J / 2008' - i've embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder, while the image is stamped normally. The papers are : Basic Grey - 'Nordic Christmas', the blue paper is embossed with : Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - 'Swirls', the die is : Cheery Lynn - 'Fanciful Flourish', the silver ribbon and blue pearls are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Winter Wonderland - where they are celebrating their 7th Birthday and the Challenge is 'Ribbon And A Bow'

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 367 is 'Fancy Ribbon And Bow'

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - where CHNC No : 285 is 'Silver'

Simon Say's Stamp - where this week's Challenge is 'Animal Magic'

Fab N' Funky - where the Challenge is 'Shaped Cards' - if the shape is not different enough, please delete me

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Fabulous card Sam! Love the doves and such a pretty design.

I spotted that you're on the hunt for a new vacuum cleaner. One to consider, stocked by John Lewis as well, is the Sebo brand. It's also made in Germany and we've had one for a very long time without any issues at all.

Hi Sam,
I must apologise for you not getting any comments from the DT at Winter Wonderland. We had one person who went on holiday and one who went on an unexpected and very needed holiday and no arrangements had bee made to cover their numbers.
I can assure you that your card was included in the prize draw as I am always notified about cards that are ineligible as thay do not fit the theme for that week. Even if your card wasn't suitable it is our policy to comment and still do a write up.
I know it's not an excuse but some ladies on the team are very new to being on a DT, but I will be sending out an email to all members of the team.
I do hope you will continue to support our blog and hoe that this doesnt happen again

Eileen, DT coordinator at Winter Wonderland

And I did think your birds of peace was beautiful
