A real bad photo, good news and just a teeny rant + A spoon full of sugar challenge-Anything goes + Scrapbook Sisters-Over the Edge

Yooooohhhoooo everyone I hope your all well and happy...well I had some fantastic courier bring two of our cases on Saturday and one last night, lovely fella but still waiting for the biggest one and sods law that's where my chargers are and my Daughters beloved GHD's (OH NO!!!!) so my photo is really rubbish today as I'm using a very old camera with no macro for closeups...shocking piccy isn't it soz lol...now for my teeny rant, I'm not an unreasonable person (well I hope not anyway) and I totally understand about traffic controller strikes and things happen beyond anyones control but is it just me that minds the lack of any form of customer care at all and even some kindness, like a stewardess being rude to a very young Mum with a screaming baby instead of understanding and sympathising or just offering some bottles of water around instead of ignoring everyone, about someone ringing to let us know whats happening about our luggage, I don't expect miracles or compensation or anything just some thought and service...ok rant over lol...but never mind everything will be sorted I'm sure...right onto my card (about time too I hear you say lol), this fantastic image is of course from Mo's Digital Pencil, shes called Penelope's Party Wagon and wow how fab is that hair...shes coloured with Distress inks and the papers are from my scrap box again, I'm entering this for the Anything goes challenge over at a Spoon full of sugar and the Scrapbook Sister Over the Edge challenge too...I will be much more organised tomorrow I promise and no more rants, well hopefully anyway lol...I will be back later with my candy winner and have a fantastic day everyone

Jackie said...

Fab card, I love the flowers matching the paper.
I agree, a bit of courtesy never hurt anyone and it would do them good to remember that the customer pays their wages!
I hope the rest of your luggage arrives very soon :o)

Sinikka said...

It seems very complicated to return all luggage att once, doesn't it???
I hope the fouth case will turn upp today.
I think you should get some compensation for this bad service.
Love your card. She is very cute and indeed a lot of hair....so 70's

nothing wrong with a rant Mina, I often have them, people are still rude and still drop litter and spit, my pet hates, but it stops us exploding lol.
Your card, fab as ever, great coloured image and super papers even with as you said a dodgy pic.
Hope you get your case back soon.

Mina, your picture is 100% better than mine ever so please don't stress too much I'm sure your last bag will turn up soon . Love the image and that wild hair. Your colouring ability has not suffered at all . Love the fussy cut flowers as embellishments.

Gorgeous card Mina!!!!! the image is fab!!!!!

Miria said...

Hi, Mina. Talking about the photo, I dare saying it's better than mine! And the card, too of course! Perfect colouring and I love the way you used the flowers from the background paper. About the luggage, I know that getting angry it's not so useful but I think it helps to steam off ( I'm not sure if I used the right words but I hope you can understand what I mean! ) Hugs. Miria

Diane said...

So sorry to hear about your nightmare journey home, Mina. Doesn't it have a way of taking all the relaxation out of a good holiday? Anyway, the card is lovely and another super image from Mo, beautifully coloured by you - great!

Sorry to hear about your luggage Mina but is sounds like you had a good holiday. Sorry I haven't been able to comment on all your beautiful cards but they look stunning. How organised were you before you holiday? hee hee. Hope you get the rest of you belongings back quickly and you kicked plenty of butt. :-) xx

What a sweet card Mina, so wonderful!
Hugs Jacqueline

Josephine said...

A sweet card. Love the papers and the bow!

Hope the rest of your luggage appears very soon.

Noreen said...

I'm glad everything ended up okay for you. I was flying once and was in a terminal that had a "slowdown". That meant the employees weren't striking, but they were coming late to work and delaying all the flights to let their employers know they were unhappy. Instead of sympathizing with them, all I could think was how selfish it was of them to cause thousands of people great difficulties. They should not have made the public suffer for their grievances.

Noreen said...

P.S. I like your card.. especially the colors.

coops said...

Oh I love her hair!!! Fabulous colouring as always and such scrummy colours! Hope you get everything back soon! hugs, Jane xxx

Aussie Loz said...

She's gorgeous, hope your big bag shows up soon. I agree with your rank, I'm finding less people seem to have any sort of customer service, like returning phone calls! Does my head in at the moment!
Anyway, have a great day ♥
