Fairy Tale Friday

Gayle decided that with Christmas just around the corner, and a requirement to create stamps and cards that would help spread the Christmas cheer, the girls should have a 'mock' Christmas party.

The girls unfurled the decorations and covered all the walls in the main hall with streamers and baubles. The table was set, crackers and party poppers were set out across the table. The girls had the usual Teddy Bo Towers Christmas dinner, Haggis, boiled potatoes, and plenty of turnip vodka. Things started quietly, everyone on their best behaviour, but when a courier arrived with a special delivery, Maritha insisted he was strip-o-gram she had hired to spice up the afternoon. Deny it he might, but when Maritha has spent £30 for a male dancer, she's going to make sure she gets value for money. The poor man had to dance around the floor to Abba's Waterloo, spinning his tie in the air. While dancing, he noticed an emergency exit, and started to wind his way through the main hall before making a break out the door running off down the street being chased by Maritha screaming 'I want my money back!!!!".

Meanwhile the others were getting drunker and drunker and were then of course singing louder and louder. In fact so loud that no one could hear anyone speak, and the girls continued to dance and shriek to Abba tunes until suddenly the music stopped. Everyone turned to stare at two policemen standing by the cd player.

"Ladies, we have had a number of complaints about the noise levels at Teddy Bo Towers. People are asking for you to either stop the music, or reduce it to acceptable levels, but we say no, play it LOUDER" yelled the police man as the music started again and both men removed their shirts.
Poor Maritha had missed the real strippers.

The next morning, some very hungover girls sat at their tables discussing Christmas ideas. Wait until you see the new stamps coming out next week from Teddy Bo, D'Arcy's Diaries and Wonderland Stamps and the cards the girls have made. I'm sure you'll admit that a drunken Christmas night helped create some fantastic designs.

We've lost another DT girly temporarily as Hazel has a lot on her plate at the moment...but we're confident that as 2013 shines it's happy face on us all Hazel will return...x  Thank you honey for all that you've done so far with us and we look forward to having you back (infact, we can't wait....there appears to be a smell appearing from your room and everyone's scared to go in.......did you take your black panther/cougar with you or should we have been feeding it?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?  Oooops!

But as we waved goodbye to Hazel as she stepped on the bus back home...who should we find but Elaine who's agreed to join us!!  She had gone out on the bus for a wee trip to the shops and had fallen asleep not realising that at the end of the line her bus changes route and becomes the England to Scotland bus.....oh dear...she was VERY confused when she got off the bus and we took advantage of her..that, and asked her to come inside for a cup of tea and a crafting session.......because it's been pouring here all week she's not been outside yet so hasn't realised that the doors are locked!!!!!!!!!! ;O)  You can see her fabulous debut card below..x
