I have been watching Maureen Lipman at the Hay Festival on TV this morning.  Man, is she so intelligent and funny.  But whatsmore, and what I envy her for, she is observant.  I am not, I miss all the little subtleties that go on, don't pick up the non verbals and generally allow the world to pass by unnoticed unless it's "in your face" type of event.  Can any of you remember her sitcom "Agony"...I'm 16 and I'm feeling kinda on the shelf, sometimes I get a funny pain....
So as it's my birthday tomorrow, I have just ordered her latest book from Amazon, it'll be fabulous, I know it and it's bitesize peices of wit and wonder.  Can't wait.
This card is for Polka Doodles secret.  It's not wildly imaginative I admit, but the secret is in on of the tiny envelopes and it's a promise tot the person receiving the card.

She's Gorjuss, carrying a letter and I've used a Papermania pad to make tonal paper envelopes, with a papermania template.  Decorated them with peel offs, added a green brad and coloured Gorjuss with Promarkers.  The band across the middle is Martha Stewart leaf punch and I've saved the leaves and added them to the envelopes.  It's all distressed with Black soot ink.

I don't know what to have with birthday money but I am desperately trying to avoid crafting goodies as I have too much.   But it's going to be difficult to resist.
Catcha later.
