..best laid plans and all that. I am in a serious strop at the moment because our t'internet has been on the blink since 11pm last night... until about half an hour ago when I realised that it had enough ooomph to upload photo's...so, here I am with todays offering... oh and... the winner of the reindeer! Firstly, THANK YOU all for your lovely comments, there were 88 in total! WOW! So, I fed this number into Mr.Random.org and he gave me this:
Yes, the winner is commenter #35 which is Joanne. Congrats Joanne, I will pop the reindeers into the post for you later :O)) Also today I am doing my DT for Fantastic Ribbons. A few weeks ago the lovely chaps at Fantastic Ribbons sent us all some pretty ribbons to play with and make something wrapped... all of the DT designs are HERE on the Fantastic Ribbons blog... check them out... they are all stunning. So. Me and wrapping don't exactly have a very good past history.... I would go so far as to say I don't do it very well... so I have kind of been dreading this challenge because everyone has made such lovely stuff and I knew mine would look like AlfieCat had actually done it.... hey, thinking, AlfieCat would probs make a better go of it rofl
Anyways... never one to be beaten and give up, I decided to go with what I know, in a vain attempt to distract you from actually looking at the bow (never my strong point... I blame velcro lol) I used brown paper to cover the pressie and smudged Vintage Photo DI right around the edges to add some inkiness. I then got the Distress Markers and inked up some stamps... stamped them onto the wrapping and then heat set them. Next came the bow making... best say not much about that... ahem... and because the wrapping was so atrocious, I added some little beady flower jobbies... and a Journal Ticket with a sentiment on it... ta-dah! Done! Not my best make of this year but... it is the taking part right?
Thanks for looking... I am away to lounge about a bit more.. I am having myself a jammie's day today... I have slobbed about all morning... and more slobbing about is required this afternoon.... and then I shall rush around about 10mins before Grim is due home from work (about 7.30pm) and do some dusting and empty some bins and get the dinner on so it looks like I have been a hive of activity all day... somehow I don't think I shall be fooling him though! Speaking of Grim... I AM SO excited!!!!!! OH YESH! Cos... I have got his Xmas pressie, it is wrapped (after a fashion) and I thought it all up by myself because he kept saying "nothing" when I asked what he would like to have for Xmas. So, I thunked up the idea, got the thing and I am doing a little giggle-wiggle cos I think he will LOVE it!!! All shall be revealed after the big day ;o)) Right... am offski, that sofa is callling me! TTFN
