Friends Card & Radio Fame!

January 24, 2013 at 10:50 am 6 comments


Hi! I’ve been having a bash at colouring ( ok- scribbling to be precise!). It’s rather ‘busy’ this card,but zingy nonetheless. It’s a Hero Arts background type stamp & paired with stripes of bright colours it’s a little different. The little jars are all glittered ( hard to see in the pic) & finished off with another Hero Arts stamp sentiment . Having got a big box of free stamps from them

20130124-103609.jpg..all thanks to their Publication Incentive Programme (sorry- had to spell it the UK way!! ) I’ve had quite a lot of stamps heading my way. These are all their brand new sets from the 2013 catalogue and its well worth checking out. I’ve yet to open them- they all look so pristine in their wrappers!

This week has been a week of ‘radio’ so far. I was listening to Radio Merseyside which I don’t normally listen to as Classic FM is my bag. However, due to early school closures, I thought ( wrongly) I’d catch them announced on this station.
Anyhow, each morning they have something called ‘Kids Convoy’- the littlies ring in with the answers to a set question, get a chat with the DJ Tony Snell and get a certificate for their trouble. Jamie decided to ring in. Id warned them not to expect to win- lots of kids ring in.
He got through.
Left his answer & they rang him back.
It was very funny.
To coin a Liverpool phrase, the DJ was buzzing off Jamie- he played along and we all laughed.
The next morning.
“Mum, I want to ring in” said my no. 3 ( not wanting to be outdone by no.4 and the notoriety that it had brought at school).
” ok- but you know, it may not happen, they’ll recognise the number!”
She got to leave the answer. They recognised the number.
“Is that Jamie?” they enquired.
She explained she was the older sister.
That was that, I thought, no chance now.
Incredibly, she got randomly chosen- had her 5 mins of fame and disappeared off to school ecstatically.
This morning.
“Can I ring in?” Asks no. 5?
“Not this morning” I answered.
We’ll try next week.
5 mins of radio time and the excitement of a certificate coming through the post. Who would believe it?!
My kids are easily pleased.
Wish that was all it took for me 😉

See you when I’ve fought off the crowds of their adoring fans ( not!) Xx

    I love how you colored the Garden Background, Keren. Your card has that Peter Rabbit feel after being colored–which I LOVE! I also have that stamp and really didn’t spend enough time on it…your pub incentive package looks YUMMY (mine is on it’s way!!). HUGS!
