half full or half empty?...

Good morning everyone how are you all doing today, I'm still struggling with my internet connection and getting maybe two hours off and on all day long, so all I can do is ask you to bear with me while it gets sorted out...I went to that furniture shop I found last Saturday to pick up the furniture and you will never guess...even though I put a deposit on it someone other than who I dealt with sold it to someone else...gutted or what...but I think I'm more the glass is half full kinda girl as I just thought of what my Mum would have said, it wasn't meant to be girl and something better will come along, well you never know do you...the guy looked a bit shocked when I said it was ok as I would keep looking, mind I took my money back anyway lol...my card for today is for the Sugar Nellie DT and using the amazing Nancy which is one of the new Adorables, look at that amazing face and smile...isn't she just beautiful, I coloured her with Distress inks and teamed her up with this amazing My Minds Eye paper from the Life Stories collection called Antique flowers, gorgeous isn't it, I used a bit of kraft card too and the tags are cut from a sheet of the same range of My Minds Eye...I added a bow and a few buttons to finish, the gorgeous sketch is from the Create4fun Challenge the Craft your days away monochrome challenge and I'm also entering this for the Papertake Weekly anything goes challenge too...no Sunday lunch today but a lovely lazy Sunday with Phil, maybe a bit of mooching about you never know...whatever your doing today I hope you have a fantastic time

Oh Dear Mina you certainly are having problems one way or another, and your mum is probably right but its a bit dissappointing when you had already sited the new piece of furniture. Love your card its gorgeous and your right about her cute face. hugs Shirleyxxx
