A big red thank you.

Hello all
I am now officially on my hols - in Peterborough of course. A week with Janice and Andy at SirStampalot playing in their craft shop, what more could a girl ask for??
My daughter Becki drove me up here yesterday after work. What is it with the M25, it doesn't seem to matter what time we set out it always ends up taking at least 4 hours for what the sat nav tells us is going to be a 2 and 1/2hour journey. Still never mind I'm here now and all set up in my little corner ready to play.
I thought I would share another couple of the cards from Barbara's last TV show. I've also just  noticed that it looks like this show is being repeated on Create and Craft channel 671 at 7pm on Sunday 20th March. That's tomorrow.
This card uses the Dog Roses and Celtic Thank You Text Box. The background paper is made with a brayered background and cling film (Barbara shows a similar technique on the show). This card seemed ideally suited to help me say Thank You to all of the customers who came into our garage yesterday and supported our efforts for Comic Relief. We raised the spectacular sum of £531, which was the best in our territory. So a very big thank you to everyone, it made dressing up as a school girl and looking silly for the day well worth the effort.
It was actually great fun and everyone got into the spirit of it.
From left to right Kovi, myself, Jeanette, Sega our Headmaster, I mean Manager, and Jude the Duty Manager. The lady visible over Sega's shoulder is Cheryl another cashier. The picture of me is dreadful, I hate having my photo taken and now you can see why.
This is another card using the same two stamps only this time I have stamped and embossed the images and then painted with bleach, a favourite technique of mine as you know.
It's time to make the tea again so I will get on with some playing.
Don't forget to watch the repeat of the show show tomorrow, if you get the chance and I will try and post again later.
Happy Crafting.
Love and hugs
