Make It Monday Linky Party

Hello Bloggers,

Well what a week of torrential rain Sydney copped!, and it thru me in a spin!... as you know I'm making a period western, and were supposed to be on location all week. I bought the crew back into studio mid morning, only for them to ring and say they had some of the trucks bogged... another nightmare trying to get tow trucks to pull them out and the horses were wet... what did they want me to blow dry them! (LOL)... Well when they finally arrived, we manage to get three scenes shot, but are now three quarters of a day behind... humm well I made a decision to stay in studio all week, (thank goodness I did),  so we are all madly rescheduling, post phoning actors, then when we think we can relax, we find out our leading lady has gone to NZ, so quickly put her on a flight back, then we find another is on the slopes in Jindabyne skiing and he doesn't drive, so hired a chauffeur driven car to pick him up and return him back when filming is finished... its a 6hr drive each way.  As we have such a schedule to stick to, it means the crew will have to work next Saturday, and I hate doing this to them, as they work extremely long hours in horrendous conditions.  So as you can see... I didn't go to NZ.... too busy!

Well onto my card, its clean and simple, my image is Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Clusters, inked up with Big & Juicy - foliage ink, stamped directly to the card, the used my brayer on a scrap and used same ink, die cut the flower, added a button, and bingo finished, this will be in the post in the next few days as a 'thinking of you', to my aunt, who is not well.
