An odd weekend, keep reading there is a card at the end!!

Hi, I'm back on line after a really odd weekend, this is going to be a bit of a long one, but feel free to skip all my waffle and have a peek at the card at the bottom!

Yesterday was the first time I didn't post anything since I started blogging :-(  I had a migrane that wiped me out for most of the day.  I thought it had lifted and nipped next door for my neighbours party but by 10pm it had returned and I had to go home - still at least I didn't have far to go!!

Thankfully a good sleep and a lot of painkillers later it had lifted enough for me and HB to go to Brands Hatch to watch the DTM (German Touring Cars) as our friends Alan and Tracy had invited us up to their suite again :-)

When we got there on the door of the suite next door was this sign

Now if you don't know who David Coulthard is, he is an ex Formula 1 driver who now is an F1 pundit for the BBC and also drives in the DTM, and yes, I really did take a picture of a door!! - although I did get Tracy's daughter to stand near it, so it kinda looked like I was taking a picture of her, but guess the secret's out now huh?!

Tracy and I did keep our eyes peeled, and I was hoping for a rather excellent photo opportunity (imagine the scrapbook page, LOL!), but this was the closest we managed to get to Mr Coulthard all day - he's driving the yellow car!!


Bizzare moment of the day came when we were in the suite and a couple of the kids from next door had come in to watch the British Touring Cars that was on the TV (don't think David's suite had a telly!!), one crashed (not badly though) and a "Uhhh, Dad!! he crashed last weekend as well" comment was made from one of the kids, turns out that his dad is a BTCC driver.  I'm not going to name and shame the driver involved, but it's nice to know that even if you are a racing car driver your kids are still embarrassed of you, LOL :-)

Right since I have done no crafting all weekend I thought I'd share this card, that I made a couple of weeks ago, with you - it's a variation on a theme from a few months back, but it's a design that works so well with pretty much any sitting down image it'd be a shame not to put it on my blog!

I'd like to enter this card for

Supplies - Daydreaming Ruby and Sentiment - Ladybug Crafts Ink, coloured with Copics and highlighted with Stickles and Glamour Dust;  Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts; Pins - made by me!;  Ribbon from Stash; Nesties and embossing folder;

Hi Sue,
I just found your blog and had to comment on this post as I'm a huge F1 fan and would not be embarrassed to be taking pictures of doors! I've taken pictures of worse! lol
I was just away at the Belgian GP and I got a picture of DC at it! We spotted him in the pitlane on saturday when they were on air for qualifying.
Love the card BTW and hope your migrane has stayed away.
