A life without electric!!!

Oh GOD!!!

If you have been watching the telly, I am one of those poor families without electricity, since mid day yesterday, we are now on a rota systems for Electric at three hours on 6 hours off....

How on earth did people live without electric, oh it's madeness here, all the house and shop alarms going off all the times, all through the night, they sau vandals broke in the dartford substation, and damaged cable and legs to the bridge holding them, mmmmm!!! bog standard vandals breaking in a substation with substantial locks, me thinks somethingelse is going on here, 9/11, 7/7 springs to mind..... too much damage for stupid vandals to have caused!!
well we are going to be like this for another 24 hours at leats...

Anyhows I am on my three hours supply, have you ever tried to make cards in little light even daylight my eyes are sore, I have elzybells and craftsulove cards to do....

Can't cook as my gas oven has a safety cut off system to stop gas leaking in a powercut, so stove top food only, am gonna look like a baked bean soon, let alone what I might smell like with no hot water, but hey all nice and clean now...lol

Just saw my local chip shop and cafe on the tv,... lol

Right ya wanna see some cardies...... Another Elzybelss sneak day not long now till release day....

Thankyou also to all those who have commented it really is much appreciated, please do pop over to the rest of the DT's they have made such stunning cards....

All images are from the same set as yesterdays cards..... images coloured with Prisma pencils and OMS, both from Craftsulove...

Bye for now

I really hope it's all sorted soon and you get back to some sort of normality! Love your card, the new Elzybells look gorgeous and I love how you've used the Kraft card, perfect choice and really shows off the stamps. Take care Sweetie and I hope all is sorted soon. Chris xx
