a mishap with the loo - CYDA challenge+Sketch Saturday+Stampin for the Weekend+Whiff of Joy challenge

Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend, mine turned out lovely, fab Husband, fab Sunday lunch, fab company but I had a little mishap in the loo, I was leaning over to change the loo roll as I seem to be the only one capable of doing this and my glasses fell down the pan oopsie...but rubber gloves, a pair of tongs (don't worry I threw them away lol) and lots of water and steriliser and they are sorted and tightened up to stop them slipping off again, well I had to tighten them or revert to the ribbon tied at the back option again, do these things only happen to me and is it my age I keep asking myself...anyway my card for today, sorry the photo is bad but I forgot to take it and had to use the overhead light to take it by and it always washes out all the colours, I will retake in the light tomorrow though...I love this beautiful new Whiff of Joy stamp so had to buy it when Nikki got it in stock, shes called Dare to Dream and is gorgeous to colour, I used distress inks and paper pieced her, I also decoupaged her dress but you cant really see the dimension on these piccys...the stunning papers are from Prima, I seem to be addicted to these atm, I wont be able to stop buying them until I have the lot of them I think, the sentiment tag is from the paper pad too, this pad is called sweet and gorgeous are the little net flowers they are from the new Prima Delightful Day collection and are the Starshore ones...all these goodies are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I added a glittered dragonfly charm and some ribbon and lace from my stash...the sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering this for the CYDA For Mum challenge , Stampin' for the Weekend Mothers Day challenge and Whiff of Joy Anything goes challenge too...I'm off shopping for a new oven for my Daughter today so no crafting until tonight...have a fantastic day everyone

Tine said...

Hi Mina. She's gorgeous and those net flowers are lovely. My mum used to wear her glasses around her neck on a chain & even that could cause some hilarity (long story!). Only have to wear mine for reading & crafting which is just as well as they drive me nuts at times!

You've reminded me of a similar thing that happened to me at work once - I had taken a small perfume sprayer into the loo with me, and I dropped that but there was no way I could fish it out LOL! Gave my workmates and the caretaker a laugh anyway!!
Your card is so gorgeous - love the image and the stunning flowers.

LOL! I remember one of my uncles flushing his false choppers down the loo when I was a little girl - I couldnt stop laughing for days! :D

He lived on ice-cream until he got replacements ;)

This is a sweet and elegant image Mina - I love the subtle colours on this, and the little chiffon flowers look awesome. Beautiful dragonfly too.

Gorgeous card :)
