Wrinkles Don't Hurt!

Hi all, I went to a small craft show today, it was part of a larger Home and Garden Show. They only had two stalls for papercrafts and I did find some lovely stamps that weren't very expensive. I've used one on tonight's card. I was standing at one of the stalls next to a lady and I wasn't really paying attention to her and she wasn't looking at me and then it hit me that it was one of my friend's from the group I go to on Saturdays. LOL. We have had to have a break for several weeks because Judy, our hostess, has been away and busy with parties and fetes etc.I must have just noticed her out of the corner of my eye. So Helen, it was good to see you and meet your friends too.
More news on Adrian for those who are interested or know him, he went off to work this morning with his hand still very swollen and did a full day's work. The person that organised the cad drawings for the building got it wrong and the beams they were installing were cut wrong, someone is not going to be happy after paying for a crane and two workers for a whole day. So they don't have to work tomorrow so he will be able to rest his hand. He is digging in his heels about going to have it checked out and is hoping it is a sprain, but I still think he has broken something. I told him his hand looks like "Shrek's" it is very chubby indeed!
So onto my card!
I've used SU's Early Espresso for the base card, the DP is from a mini stack called Londonerry and I sponged around it with SU Close to Cocoa. The stamp is called "Granny Relaxing" from Wild Rose Studio and I coloured her with Copics, she's really got grey hair, but I gave her a dye job as she's trying to look younger, LOL!! The sentiment is from a set called "Wrinkles Don't Hurt" by Creative Expressions. I'm a bit sad because the Copic Marker I use for the skin tones has run dry and I can't get it refilled any time soon because the shop that does it is closed Monday and Tuesdays and I am busy for most of the rest of the week. So looks like I might have to break out the watercolour paints again!
