I'm convinced I'm jinxed today! Yesterday my 5-7pm Tesco home delivery had still not appeared by 8pm so I phoned customer services (very reluctantly) to see what was wrong. When I eventually got a real person she checked and said a van had broken down and had no-one phoned me. I managed not to say would I be phoning her if I knew what was wrong ?- no I kept my temper and remained polite!! To cut a long story short I was put through to Aberdeen, more apologies, a promise to re-schedule for today and I'll get them to phone you back to sort out a time!!!! 15 minutes on phone and another 15 minutes wait for someone to phone back. This morning about the end of the 2 hour slot the driver phoned to say he was still in Aberdeen and would be about half an hour! Turns out he had a puncture first thing. Shopping was more or less ok.... but...and there's always a but isn't there? I didn't notice an unwanted substitution did I? Maybe someone could explain to me why in a store that size (and it is BIG) if they didn't have the decaff coffee I ordered did they send me COFFEE BEANS? And no they were not decaff coffee beans either. Anyway enough ranting and on with today's first card.
I used this lovely simple sketch from Friday Sketchers. I used Promarkers, including two of the new pink shades to colour this lovely Tilda image. The grey DP is from Peppercorn and the pink is from Craft Creations. I distressed some of the edges for the Friday Sketchers challenge. I finished off with jewels and some lovely spotty ribbon from my stash. Nearly forgot I also used a Sakura clear glitter gel pen on her wings - remembered to do it after I had taken a photo so had to retake photo! It's that sort of day. I am also entering the card in the Stamp Something challenge which is looking for a card using a favourite sketch. This sketch is really simple but effective, easily a favourite!
Not sure if I am entirely happy with this card - I feel as if I am having a bit of a clumsy day today!! But I have just received a lovely parcel from Tracy at Dies to Die For so that has cheered me up - 60s Tilda is in it and I have been looking forward to getting her. I'm off now to see if I can get some more useful crafting done. See you later -maybe!
