Nice smells and Zig Zags

Hi Friends.
Well I am late tonight, time got away with me as usual, anyway here I am with something to make you smile and a card.

So last weekend we visited a well known Garden Centre in Cheshire with some friends and as I was wandering around I came across these little bottles. I didn't have my glasses on at the time so I put them on and this is what I read......

YES!! Poo Pourri

Well I really have seen it all now and for the privilege it would cost you £10.99 per bottle!

Much prefer my ink sprays about you? NO not in the toilet silly!! Anyway it certainly brought several expressions to my face.

Right laugh over and on to my card. One for a male so I have gone geometric for this one. I wasn't keen at first but it has definitely grown on me.

 I used Uniko Studios 'Background Builders Chevrons' and stamped with memento inks. I don't seem to get a really crisp image so I added Glamour dust for sparkle and really like that.The Happy Birthday wording is from another Uniko set 'All Occasion Sentiments 2'. All mounted on a red mat and then on the card. Lets hope he likes it!
If anyone knows the best inks to stamp these with please do tell.

Right time for bed!  Doncaster Racecourse Summer Crafting tomorrow, so if you see me and know me say hi! and those of you not going...well you are saving some pennies!

Just want to say Hi to my new follower Jacee. Thank you for joining me and I hope you like what you see.Thanks for stopping be everyone, it is as always so much appreciated.

Have a lovely weekend everyone whatever you are doing, 'spritzing' or work of course! Lets hope this sunshine stays with us.
