And Another One.

Hello all you lovely crafters. 

Well we've had some super sunshine this week, just loved it, but today it's dull and it's been a bit showery  and windy. just in time for the weekend!

Ever had a 'wish I'd have stayed in bed' sort of day, ... yep,... well I had one of those yesterday.
Thought I'd have a cup of tea, the canister was empty so went to the cupboard to get the box down to fill it up and hubby (bless him) had put the box on the top shelf. So off I went to get the buffet and I still could't reach, so climbed back down and got the longest wooden spoon I could find and was still on my tiptoes trying to hook it down, reached too far lost my footing and fell off the buffet,  good job the derriere is well padded!! On the up side down came the teabags. So after picking myself up went to fill up and why are they in twos?  mmm.... yes.. split the teabag and covered the top in tea leaves, great, oh well popped one in my cup, filled with water, stone cold I'd not even boiled the kettle!  Start again you fool, then got the sugar down and it needed filling up too cos there was maybe a spoon and a half left in, as I opened up the bag of sugar, the canister knocked over and spilt the remaining sugar! OMG, I didn't know sugar could travel so far, it was everywhere, so back to the brush and pan. Went off the idea of a cuppa altogether.  So off I went to do a Ladies hair at home cos she'd just been in hospital, turned up the wrong road and had to turn round in a tiny cul-de-sac with builders vans parked everywhere and caught the bottom of my car on a high kerb, with all the builders watching.... thank god for sunglasses!! Got to my Ladies house about twenty minutes late and I'd not packed the dryer... I was nearly crying by this time. Don't worry she says I have one you can use, believe me, that dryer was on strike, I could have blown it quicker myself and this was all before 11am.!!

So onto my card.
It's another Christmas one for the pile.
It's an easel card but for some reason I haven't taken a pic of that.
