What day off......?

Yeah so much for my day off. Look at the time and this is me just having a chance to show you my day's work!! Today didn't really start well...... Part of my job in the post office is dealing with lottery sales and prizes. Fine, no problem normally but the other day the boss made a mistake counting some of the scratch cards. It's usually his wife, my boss who does it and my blood runs cold when I see his writing in the book. His figures are so bad as to be illegible to say the least. So I haven't been able to do the lottery for two days now. Plus on a Monday you always have to do two days so four is a lot of fun. Since we had a holiday today that means that my colleague would have had to do five days lottery tomorrow on the first day back after her holidays. I know she would have panicked and left it for me anyway so better to get it out of the road today. Then I went to Tesco for some fruit and odds and ends. Then it was time to sort the jam strawberries I bought at the farm shop yesterday. It took ages, they're so small and there were so many of them! It didn't help that because of the weather the quality wasn't brilliant and I had to do a lot of trimming and throwing out. So by the time I had my lunch and made the jam it was 3 o'clock before I sat down. Poor me, don't you feel sorry for me? Yeah right! It's my own fault it was my idea to make the jam.

Anyway enough waffle I did get a card made eventually.

I used :-
Image and DP :- LOTV.
Sentiment :- Heritage stamps.
Glamour Dust, ribbon, pearl.

I'm entering the following challenge :-
Christmas Challenges with sketches :- Sketch.

Well I'll go to bed now and catch up with you all tomorrow. Thanks for looking.

  5. Gorgeous glittery card. I've got to say our strawberries here (in Western Australia) are massive this season (I took a photo of one in my hand yesterday, might put it on my blog)... probably due to the fact that we've had a woefully dry winter and everything started budding up early. They are delish, though, so I won't complain... and they end at Christmas when it's simply too hot for them, so I'd better get my fill. Hope your work woes sorted themselves out :-) Donna
