New Home

Asked to make a new home card with a difference I chose a Carol Dunne Cascade Deluxe design. This was easy to construct but looks amazing.

Silver Anniversary

I wanted an unusual design for a Silver Wedding card & chose a Carol Clarke design - Silver Wedding Window Card. This is such an easy design to make up, but with a few silver peel offs mounted on silver mirror card then cut out, it becomes a stunning card.

Anniversary Card

I havent blogged much for the last month - so much to do & so little time to do it.
Have just finished another card order with a special anniversary card as the main item.
For those of you familiar with the Glitter Girls Keepsake embossing Boards - the centre panel is made from the Art Deco Board, using part of the main frame, embossing both inner & outer sections plus the oval centre. A simple floral spray with organza ribbon gives it an elegant look.

On the way home from the Chiropractor today we went round a roundabout & saw a truck parked at the side selling oranges. Having gone round the roundabout again we pulled up & Allen went to get some. The oranges were in black plastic crates & the man added another 3 oranges to one crate before tipping them into a large blue plastic bag. Allen had a struggle to carry it back to the car.
When we got home we decided to weigh the bag - 11 kilos for 5€. Definately a bargain.

San Luis Lions Roar Loudest

Last Friday the San Luis Lions secured the title in Costa Blanca Southern League Division A just pipping La Marina Sharks by 2 points. No rest for the wicked & we were into battle with a rival pride of Lions from the North - Benitachell Lions. (This was the team I played for when I bowled at Benitachell before moving down to live with Allen).
Monday we were at our own green & we secured wins on 4 of the 5 triples & despite gong down heavily on the other one had a healthy shots advantage of 40 to take to the 2nd leg.
It was up at the crack of dawn yesterday for the 2 hour trek North. After bacon sandwiches it was into battle. Our losing team from Monday were out for revenge & they were quickly into their stride, never under pressure & put the first points on the board. Now it was upto the rest of us & as long as we kept the matches close even if we lost we would win on shots. But our Lions were out to prove they are the dominant pride & do that they did. We finished the game again winning 4 of 5 & became Costa Blanca Champions.
I dont think any of us stopped smiling on the way back to our club & when we got there Vic had left a tab behind the bar for us all to have a drink.
