Hollywood comes to town!!

Good morning everyone from a sunny Blackpool! The weather here is being very kind to us so far this weekend.  Next week sees the start of The Open at Royal Lytham which is just down the road.  Can you believe it but George Clooney was in one of the pubs last night?  Well my sister and I are going to watch the practice today evidently you can pay to watch the practice and they have hospitality tents and shopping tents! Tom Cruise is also supposed to be here - goodness me!! My sister said I can't wear my leopard print stillettos I have to wear sensible shoes lol.  You may have gathered by now that I have absolutely no interest in golf but who could resist the chance to maybe catch a glimpse of one of these guys?  Who knows we may get chatting and get on like a house on fire and then who knows what could happen???? Yeah right more likely to be thinking who's that weird woman who keeps following me around drooling!

I must admit that I am really struggling with Mr Mojo at the moment so I have been having a bit of a rest from crafting.  I did make a card the other day and I also have one half finished I just need to decide on the final layout.  Here is the card I made the other day:


Its really quite plain but I didn't want to add too much so that it could be suitable for a man.  The stamp is from a pile I have on my workdesk that I have had for a while and never used it is by Stamposaurus Stamps.  The papers are Nitwits.  The twine is from my stash it came free from an order I placed and I really like it but boy does it fray as soon as you cut it so I added some Glossy Accents to the ends to stop it unraveling entirely! I have used Nesties for the backing paper and the tag was cut out from a really old Sissix die. The image was coloured with Copics. Really now that I look at it its far too plain - oh well.

I hope my mojo comes back soon, I have a really busy week and I'm not sure how much crafty time I can squeeze in this week so maybe the break will do me good lol!  Thanks for looking, take care xx

Asusan your Mojo will return ,this card is lovely well done. However if we don't hear from you will will know you have run off with George Clooney. Have fun Hugs Elaine

Glenda Atkins said...

I love your card it is a great one for a gardener! I laughed at your little spiel about the arrival of the 'hollywood' stars. Be careful what you wish for, I once (many years ago) found myself standing beside Dustin Hoffman and I towered above him! Never felt quite the same about him after that! I was 5'7" and was wearing LOAFERS..... so no stilettos for sure LOL..

hugs
glenda

Star said...

Great card for a man Susan. Know what you mean about the mojo... A few of mine have hit the bin this week. Hope you had a great time celeb spotting, the stilettos could have made you fall for someone :)
