A Balloon & Bambi...

Ohhhlallaaaaa... I love getting surprises and yesterday when the doorbell rang, there stood a chap with a mahooosive box... which was as light as a feather! Having taken delivery of said light as a feather box, I was in a rush to see what was inside... and nope, I haven't ordered anything (honest, I haven't.... well, apart from one thing but that is a Christmas pressie so it doesn't count lol) Anyways... imagine my surprise when I opened up the box and out popped a big balloon! Isn't it fab! And how kind... it is from Joanne... what a wonderful surprise Joanne, thank you SO much, I love it... it made me smile very lots and... the choccies in the box too... mmm, nomnomnomnom... Here's the balloon, it is a helium filled one and has a little anchor on the end of the string so it doesn't float away. AlfieCat isn't even bothered by it... I would have thought that he would have gone a bit bonkers with the string but nope, he is being as good as gold... I think he is saving his energy for when the Christmas tree goes up!




Anyways... hands up who is having a ball with the fantabulous and wonderous 12 Tags of Christmas from the one and only Duke of Distress himself, Tim Holtz! (click his name to see what I am on about!!) Yesterdays tag... ooooh, I lurve this one... covering Grunge with Claudine's Sticky Back Canvas... brrrrilliant i-deer (ahem.. grrroan) My brads at the bottom went a weensy bit wonky... not sure how I managed that but never mind...and I think I overdid it with the PP Mists too lol Tis all a learning curve though... I mean, I had never thought to colour one patch of the Kraft Resist card with DI's... how lucky are we that Tim does all these techniques on a tag for us to learn... so... THANK YOU Tim!




Right... I had better get a wiggle on. I had to take Ferdy to "hospital" yesterday... he has been making really baaaad noisy, like a screeching metallic noise from the back wheels. Well, Mr Mechanic has said that a piston had stuck in the brake caliper and it needed releasing, Ferdy needed new pads and then he should be ok. Anyways... Ferdy has been restored to good health (hopefully) and Mr Mechanic has some dosh towards Christmas so I had better get over to the garage before they shut! Thanks for looking... oh and don't forget, a new theme for the Sunday Stamper tomorrow! TTFN

What a lovely surprise you got and glad Alfie hasn't got at it.
Fab tag too and mine is still in the making as yet again virtually no supplies Sir Tim used (and eek! Just seen today's and nothing there either)
Hope Ferdy's visit didn't leave too big a hole in the pocket.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Wow isn't Alfie Cat well behaved - is he feeling ok? I'm not sure my little Taz would have been so good even with the temptation of a Christmas tree on the horizon!

Lovely tag Hels. I'm even tempted to join in this year!

Joanne said...

Your tag is superb. Mine wasn't very good and today's is even worse. Oh well. Roll on Tuesday. I've got Sky+ all set up so, CONGRATULATIONS again. Am glad AlfieCat wasn't frightened.
Hugs Joanne xx
