Well tonight's share is going to look mighty strange .. .. but there is a reason.
This card is to go to two very good friends who we went out with during the summer for an Indian meal. It was the sort of place where you can take your own drinks with you.
The chaps took some cans of "Speckled Hen" beer and my friend and I had a bottle of wine that had all wire mesh around it.
Once we had finished our meal I was sitting playing with the wire from the bottle of wine and made a butterfly with it. My friend laughed and said "you can put that on a card for me" .. .. .. and her husband then plonked an empty beer can in front of me and said "and I want that on one". LOL!!!
I knew immediately what I was going to do .. .. and here is the result.
The beer can and the wine bottle mesh have been stored away for use for months . .. tonight being the night they came out to be played with.
Here is my make
Backing Paper: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: Computer generated
Snowflakes: An old Speckled Hen beer can
Butterfly: Wire Mesh from a bottle of plonk!!
Snowflakes: Cuttlebug die and punches
Wire, self adhesive pearls and diamonds from the Stash Box
So Christmas finally came to the House of Hearts today.
The garland and lights got attached to the base of the bannister and the tree was finally decorated .. .. complete with new lights that we went out and bought last night in the sale.
So tonight I showed hubby the lovely Christmas tree in all its glory .. .. and he loved it .. .. I was feeling well smug at getting ahead of myself for a change.
But you know what they say .. pride comes before a fall!!!
Pride isn't a nice trait and is one I try to keep under check .. .. but sadly today I didn't manage it and I was made to pay!!!
I switched the lights off on the tree as we were going upstairs for baths and my crafting session only to find that when we then switched them on again one set wasn't working!!! GRRRR!!!
Have you ever tried to take a set of 100 bulbs off a fully laden tree? Hubby took them back to the store and they exchanged them for another set.
So if you have ever tried removing a set of 100 bulbs from a fully laden tree .. .. have you also ever tried putting 100 bulbs back onto a fully laden tree!!! LOL!!!
