Twine Heart

Well that was an eventful Christmas the weather gave us. If you did see the news the south east was hit with a pretty bad storm took out trees and power. We were fine but for one tiny problem we were going out to Christmas Lunch in Godalming who had no power.
But by Christmas Eve evening we had the call to say they had power and everything was fine. But also by this point the River Wey at Guildford had burst it banks and things were looking serious and by morning it had nearly reached levels as high as the worst flood ever.
Even Godalming hadn't escaped and once again they had no power and we had no Christmas Lunch. Lucky for us the fabulous people at Inn on the Lake had arranged for us to go to their Sister pub at the Horse and Groom at Merrow which is where I said we should of gone when we first booked but was overruled by DS.
I feel very sorry for those who were affected and once again worried about the storm which is going to hit us on Friday.

Now to my card isn't this heart fabulous, it arrived a few days before Christmas and I so wanted to play and I needed an Anniversay card. The Doily heart is from Simon Says Stamps, I cut it out twice but the second one I chopped of the scallop edge and drew round it to make the red mat underneath. The middle cried out for either ribbon or twine, it makes quite a statement. The beautiful scripted sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamps Perfect Love which I think will turn into a firm favourite.

Hope you are spared in the next storm Debby. Here in Canada, we had a terrible ice storm and parts of Toronto were still without power on Christmas Day.

Your card is lovely .. so crisp and clean.

For once we here in the North escaped the worst of it - let's hope the predictions don't come to fruition over the next 36 hours! Hope your Christmas Day was a good one despite all the uncertainty at the beginning. Lovely card too!

I really love that die Debby, and made into a smashing card. Sorry to hear about all the problems this bad weather is causing. I know that area quite well as we used to live only a few miles away, but never seen it so bad! Let's hope whatever they are forcasting for later in the week is less destructive. x
