Can It Really Be Friday…..Again???

Posted on October 3, 2014

Af’noon all.

Ok, so the last time I checked me watch it was still thursday.  So where, oh where has the last 24 hours vanished to eh?? The days are short enough as it is, what with it getting dark at around 7ish, but somewhere between yesterday and today I seem to have missplaced about 16 hours.  Maybe i’ve had an alien abduction experience….Er don’t think so.  Could the diet be finally kicking in??..Don’t think it’s that either.  I know what it was.  I was lost in the timewarp that is Mission Control’s studio, unable to escape through the door and being trapped in what used to be an empty tidy neat and clean room.  Not any more folks, ‘cos what with all that has been going on this week, the place truly looks like the local tip in all of its grotty glory.  Never mind, though.  Guess who has been left the enviable task of repairing the damage, and with The boss being away until monday, I will have all weekend to do the sorting…….Can’t ble-din’ wait!

Anyway, all of that waffle brings me round to todays set of sneakies.  There are some corkers in amongst the new samples, which you will be able to check out later today, if I manage to get the gallery posted, but for now, lets have a spy at one or two picked by my fair hand at ramdom from the box.

As she has both stamps and stencils launching, I thought that a couple of both would set you up for the neet.

Look oot….The Vikings are coming…..At least their boat is. Kinda spooky this, I think, with it’s misty cold hues and silent ghostly frame.  Then check out those juicy greens for the base card…..and that beautiful ‘True Friendship’ sentiment…….Nice card!

Then lets warm, nay, heat, up the air a tad with this, which uses one of the new stencil packs…

….That’s one might steaming hot background we have here.  I could just be there now….Paris I mean…..not in the steam.  I tried a very hot sauna once, and thought that me finger nails were melting off.  Not for me.  I don’t mind around 70 ish, but much hotter and thats it.

Anyway, one digresses.  Obviously, as I mentioned, this stencil features the Blackpool Tower, and a load of hungry gulls.  Just kiddin, its Paris and Eiffel’s tower, and a pretty canny job has been done by this Inkoid, who shall remain anonymous until I can find out who did it.  Very summery, which is just what we need at this point, given that we are in for a rough weekend, if Carol Kirkwood is right about the weather.  In fact, the wind is starting to build up already, so I better get those hatches battened.  Again beautiful colours.

Next we have this…….

….night time in Africa.  Can you imagine the Kittycat bill for that bug-er?  Mind you…..if he was ours he could ask for owt…….and have it!

Finally, how about a bit of sunshine in the form of…

…these graceful giraffes.  You can almost feel the heat from here.  I have seen these wonderful creatures in the wild, and they are just so beautiful.  They glide along as if on air.  Would hate to have to knit a scarf for one though…..know what I mean??

Well thats me for yet another friday.  I’m off now to get the editing and rendering done for the gallery, which may take some time, as there are dozens and dozens of samples.  So there goes anothe missing 16 hours.  (If I miss tonight, they will definitely be there in the morning)

Have a brill weekend, enjoy the shows if you get the chance to watch and we’ll be back next week with another action packed session of bloggery.

Bye for now
