Look at me I'm Sandra Dee !!!!!



Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee, lousy with virginity
Won't go to bed till I'm legally wed, I can't, I'm Sandra Dee
Watch it, hey, I'm Doris Day, I was not brought up that way
Won't come across, even Rock
Hudson lost his heart to Doris Day
I don't drink or swear, I won't rat my hair,
I get ill from one cigarette
Keep your filthy paws off my silky drawers.
Would you pull that crap with Annette?
As for you, Troy Donahue, I know what you wanna do
You got your crust, I'm no object of lust,
I'm just plain Sandra Dee Elvis,
Elvis, let me be, keep that pelvis far from me
Just keep your cool, now you're starting to drool
Hey, fungu, I'm Sandra Dee........

Now which of the Pink ladies did you want to be ?????

Rizo, Frenchie, Marty, Jan or just plain ole Sandra Dee..... oh what memories of dancing in front of the wardrobe mirror with Brush in hand singing at the top of me voice to Grease!!!! Ohhhh those were the days.......

Anyhow Caz set me another challenge, well she slung my challenge to her right back at me, ... you wicked woman you!!!!

To make a card using Magnolia stamp, and not using background papers to make my own, well the Magnolia stamp I chose was Tilda ain't she just fab, a little rockin Tilda, and she went very well with a set of rubber stamps I bought at allie pallie Pink cat studio's Retro 50's stamps, what a fabby set too.....

Well enough gabble here is my card, hope you likey!!!! Click on piccie to get a closer look....

Oh my what a day !!!!!!!!

Well where do I begin.... Oh that makes me want to burst into song, where do I begin to tell a story of an angel that sings...... Oh I do love that song... but enough of that...


I shall begin at the beginning, Newbury day today, off me and my good friend Maureen trot on our two hour journey to the Newbury craft show, we have started out late well gone twelve, anyway... gets there, whilst running from the car park, to the entrance we shove our ham rolls down our throats, well we managed half a roll each, shoved the rest in our bags, we are in a hurry as the show shuts at 4pm and it's now 2.15...


Well we were like a pair of lunatics on a trolley dash at Morrisons.... oooing and ahhhhing along the way, first stop Craftworkcards always a must for me, a quick hello to Sue and Julie Hickey, mooching through Julie's wonderful creations, paying for me stash, and onwards with the rest of the trolley dash.... I think you can tell by piccies of the stash I bought today I am addicted to ribbon somewhat.... It's surprising how much one can shove in ones trolly when they have sooooo little time, I was soooo pleased with what I came home with, mostly coz I managed to get the much sort afterr ATC tins, I desperately wanted one to decorate as a gift for my Friend Sue's Little girl Becky, Picked up some fabby stamps by rubber romance , have one of the designs alreday so glad to add another two to my collection..... I think we were the last ones to be kicked out of the show, mmmmm wheres the rest of that ham roll, I'm famished..

Back in the car for our homeward journey another two hours drive home well A little longer not much longer due to volume of traffic....


Promised Winnie that we would watch miss potter when I got back, we sat there all comfy with a bowl of burnt homemade popcorn, yuk!!!!!! and a bunch of tissues, what a lovely film it is... anyway enough of my rambling you really want to see my stash don't you!!!!

Stash, stash and more stash....mmmmm lurvely
got some fun quirky comical stamps too, a first for me, but they really are funny ones,can't wait to use them...
