A first!

Brrrr!!! Oh its manky! Absolutely, totally and utterly M A N K Y!!! Its raining, windy, freezing and nearly dark already! AWFUL! Oh I've got the heating on and its still not that warm.... one second..... ahhh! Should be better very soon, I've just turned it up!

Now you may have wondered at my choice of title.... if not why? ;))

Well I got a card order and the conversation went something like this;

'Can you do me a birthday card please?'

'Yes when and who for?'

'Oh its a girl I work with, its in two weeks' ~giggle giggle~

'Why are you laughing???'

~cackle cackle~

I'd now got that odd feeling....

'Well can you include something along one of her hobbies?' 'guffaw guffaw' (what a super under used word!)

'Er.... it depends what it is...'

'Oh it'll be easy for you' ~more cackling~

'Come on then what's the hobby?'

'It's pole dancing'

~thud~ That was my jaw hitting the floor!

Anyway after a bit of brain teasing and the loan of this fab stamp from my buddy Debbie This is what I made.

Taaa Dahhhhh!

I have to say I rather like her ;)) She did have a frou -frou skirt on. I cut that off as I thought a leotard look was more appropriate for pole dancing. I mean you couldn't pole dance in a big frou-frou could you? It'd cover your head when you went upside down! Which if I were doing it would only be a good thing! Hang on though that would mean my backside was showing though... I digress and I apologise for any nasty images the thought of me pole dancing has given you!

So she's been popped on a nestie and coloured with Copics, flowers a la Wild Orchid Crafts, a few blobs of Stickles, ribbon, lace, punching and pins and she was done.

Oh the arty shot for you fans out there.... there must be one surely?

Can I have a few good wishes for my Harry please? Little chickie is a bit poorly - again! I swear she wants me white haired and bankrupt.

Right off to turn that heating up a bit more I think!

Yes I like the arty shot! That edgy punched paper show up really well on it.

The theme is well and truly covered by your choice of stamp. And I must say she has good thighs for gripping that pole! hahaha.

Well done Net for coming up with something for someone who does pole dancing. I'd definitely have been stuck for what to do!!

So gorgeous card Net,I love the image and your papers.

Hugs Riet.x

Well you rose to the challenge triumphantly. Pole dancing brings a mutual friend to mind - perhaps you should have asked for a picture! Poor Harry - hope she's better than she was. I'm still hoping to get something done for the TG sketch (yes, I know, time is running out ...) x
