Tickets.... Grrr!

Friday, 15 February 2013

Good morning!

I've just spent almost an hour trying to get tickets to see the Scottish comedian Billy Connolly.  I thought I was doing well to start with as I got onto the site, got my tickets selected and entered my payment details.  And then... CRASH!  The flippin site went down!  And then it was impossible to get back on it, even to find out if my purchase went through.  So after 45 minutes of refreshing the page with one hand and re-dialling with the other I finally got onto the page and got tickets booked for another night.  So at least I know I'm going now, maybe even twice!

On another note, I've been in total shock about Oscar Pistorius.  You may have noticed that I have pictures of him in my side-bar as I've been a fan for a long time.  I just hope that the right result comes from this terrible incident.  There are just so many questions.

Anyway, it's time for another challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and the challenge for the next fortnight, which was chosen by our lovely Jan, is...

A for Anything With Wings!

So back at the start of the alphabet with a fab challenge!

Here's what I did:

The image is Daisy Butterfly by Whimsy Stamps and I coloured it with the following Copics: E55,53,51,40,39,37,35,YR24,23,21,16,14,RV34,32,10.  I then used Glamour dust around the edges of the butterfly.  I used the out of the box technique to cut out the image with a Spellbinder die and I twirled some wire to add to the top of the wings.  Lot's of Swarovski crystals to bling it up!

The papers I have used are MME Indie Chic.  I used Grand Nestibilities - Grand Labels 23 for the card base and Fancy Framed Tags 1 for the sentiment.  The sentiment is a Waltzing Mouse stamp from the Fancy Phrases set.  And I couldn't resist a few more Swarovski's and pearls!  I didn't take a pic of the inside as it is quite plain.

So pop over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT did.
