Barns Ness Lighthouse

Mr A and I took ourselves off in the car again and with no real destination in mind, we ended up taking a road "off the beaten track" and ended up near here, Barns Ness Lighthouse.  What a discovery!  We parked the car at the car park not realising if we had chosen the other road, we could have driven directly to here.  It was a good wee walk to get there even over the rock shale on the beach before we crossed over onto the grassy verge from the rock shale, I took this shot of the lighthouse and adjacent buildings.

My work colleague Anne had given me a couple of boxes of breakfast biscuits as they werent to her taste.  I did offer her something in exchange but Anne wouldn't accept.  Anne is well known to have a drawer full of sweet goodies and chocolate ie her "stash".  I thought a large bar of chocolate would be a good idea as a token and I made up a cardstock bag to present it in.  I made a ribbon slider using cardstock and an old Creative Memories punch to punch the block of 9 small squares.  I applied a premade chipboard embellishment.  I cut and folded [using the Stampin' Up scoring board] the little yellow card which is 3"x 3"and using the same Creative Memories punch again, I set it to punching the 6 corner style squares at opposite corners.  Using a Stampin' Up sentiment stamp and black Stazon ink, I positioned the sentiment to be centred on the card as shown below.  The envelope I cut and made using the envelope punch board from We Are Memory Keepers. 

I presented the gift to Anne on Friday morning by leaving it by her computer workstation and she was delighted to have received the wee card and chocolate gift.

Stood Up

My colleague Janis whom works in another area within the hospital I work at, provides typing support for my department.   We had arranged to meet for lunch one day and I had gotten the time mixed up and stood her up unintentionally.  We rearranged and it was on a day where I had forgotten to let her know I was off work with a dodgy knee! 

We met for lunch today and by way of a small apology, I made this card and matching wrapped bar of chocolate.
