Powercut ...

... we had a very specific one last night.  At about 8.30pm I was settling down at my PC to catch up with reading various blogs, when Jonathan and I became aware that the lights were flickering quite a lot.  Now, it's not unusual for this to happen here - the electricity supply is a bit suspect quite often.  But last night we suddenly lost power.  Okay, we thought, the village has gone down.  But when we looked out of our window, we discovered the power outage was confined to the street light in front of our house, our neighbour's house and ours!!  That's a really specific power cut.  We called the power company and they sent an engineer out to check out the local sub-station (poor guy - it was really cold last night).  Power was restored at just after 11.30pm!!  We were woken up by our alarm going off!!!  So much for catching up last night.

So this morning I had to go round and adjust all the electronic clocks in the house.  Just weird!!!  So no cards were made yesterday, but I still have a few left to show you from those that I made for the School Fair last week.

Image - Pink Petticoat; Greeting - from a small set that I've had for ages; I added some sparkle with Stickles

Stampin' Up! - image - this is from the hostess set I got from my last party - I really like this set, sadly I missed the top of the card when I scanned it - the dotted border goes all the way round!!

Another Pink Petticoat image - coloured on the computer.

This is a sweet stamp - just right for tomboys!!

Now I'm off to play in my craft room and make a few more Christmas cards.  Should be back later tonight - powercuts permitting :))

My signature seems to have disappeared!!  I'll get that sorted out as soon as I can

Hi Deborah, love the cards especially the bottom one, what a little cutie. Hope your power is ok now.

I love them too - my favourite is the flower present, third one down. Such a graphic image, beautifully coloured.

glad you have power restored, my favourite is also the flower present - delightful with that border around the edge.
