Fire and brimstone

A couple of ' just because ' cards, you know the kind, your stash is sat there, you have a little free time and out pops a couple of cards, these were made this morning at work, in between customers.

The backgrounds have both been stamped onto Kraft coloured card, I borrowed a set of stamps from Linda ( thanks hon) - they are stampin' Up.

I broke out some Mulberry handmade paper - remember that stuff we all buy when we start card-making, hide in our stash and then wonder what possessed us to buy it in the first place !

Everything else was scraps left on the table after the crop on friday afternoon.

Neil picked me up from work and drove myself and the kids to Nottingham for one of the best nights out we have ever had.

Neil had bought us all tickets to see the spectacle that is Rammstein - trust me, nothing can prepare you for the theatrics of the music and the show.

Jaw droppingly outstanding in every way. Till is such a showman and is mesmerising as he sings totally at ease with flames bursting from heavy duty angel wings strapped to his back, flame throwers, fire works, massive foaming canons, crowd surfing in a dinghy and all set in an industrial landscape with a heart pounding, bass heavy soundtrack like none you have heard before. I was worried that the boys would be a little out of their comfort zone but all five of us loved every single soot filled second. 

As for the whole thing being in German - who cares!!!! music and entertainment definitely transcends language.

YES we got wet !

YES we felt the heat

YES our ears are still ringing

Would I do it again - hell yes, bring it on Rammstein !
