Good morning everyone, I hope all is well with you. Thank you for your kind messages about my BP testing. I certainly would not want to do that again but all went well, if painful at times. With the infernal machine doing it's thing every half hour throughout the 24 hours on such a hot and sultry day/night, I got precious little sleep but hey ho, 'tis done now so it's just a waiting game to see if I need to take tablets to correct the BP. Oh well, worse things happen at sea, so "they" say LOL.
On to my cards for today. I have added a new dimension to them in the form of embossing and I do think it's a worthwile addition, I hope you do too :o)
Meet Oink, Derby's resident water buffalo. He lives in Darley Abbey for those of you who would like to meet him for real. He has been there for many years. Why was he named Oink? Well, he makes an oinking sort of snorting sound and he grew up with pigs as companions! I took this photograph last Sunday :o)
The peacock can be found finishing visitors meals for them at Blackbrook Zoo, just on the Ashbourne side of Leek. I took this photograph 4 years ago, must go back there one of these days! The embossing was done in the GC using my latest Crafts Too bamboo embossing folder, accidentally debossed on the first card and embossed on the second one. Sentiments were done in MS Word using Papyrus font :o)
