summer fun and one of last weeks mishaps...

Good morning everyone I hope your all having some glorious sunshine, the weather (hang on until I find a piece of wood to touch) is lovely here, not roasting hot but sunny and bright...I have to tell you something that happened to me while I was away and hand on heart these things really do happen to me, I haven't a clue why but they happen very often...I think someone up there is taking the mickey you know lol...on the drive to the farmhouse we found a warehouse that sold old furniture and you all know how I like a rummage, so we parked and off we went for a mooch...I should have guessed really when I saw the state of the stone stairs leading down to the place that it wasn't a good place for me to be really...there were a few nice pieces but all the things I liked someone with the same taste had nabbed before me...off we go upstairs to look at stuff that had just come in the fella who owned the shop told us...wandering round not a care in the world then the earth moved as my foot and leg up to my calf went through the floor...now I don't know who got the biggest shock, me, Phil or the fella below, luckily I wasn't fully on that leg if you know what I mean or I really would have gone through the floor...the guy had the nerve to shout up asking if I was ok, I will be fine I shouted when I have recovered from the heart attack that caused me, needless to say we didn't look anymore and left with Phil shaking his head like he does when these things happen to me...right onto my card for today which really should have gone on yesterday but never mind its here now, its for our new challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge which this month is fun in the sun and I thought this fantastic new stamp from the new release by Whimsy stamps called Fairy Daydreams fit the bill playing peek a boo in her flower, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these beautiful new papers from the Basicgrey 6x6 Sweet Threads paper pad, lush colours aren't they, the beautiful little dragonflies are from a set called Wooden Ornaments Flower Animal No 1, I stained them with distress inks and glittered aren't they so gorgeous, the sketch is from The Corrosive challenge and I'm also entering this for the Stamp Something Bugs or Butterflies challenge, Stampin for the weekend Wings and Things challenge and the Stampalot anything goes challenge too...right I have taken up enough of your time today so will pop off to my craft room to get a bit more colouring done...have a wonderful day whatever your up to

mustavcoffee, Gay Peplow said...

Hi Mina, Oh dear poor you, pretty dangerous having a floor like that!!! Glad you're okay:0)
Thank you for your very kind comments. I'll bet your card is beautiful, I really wish I could see it but my computer is so bad, it isn't loading photos properly and I wait 3/4mins for a page to load. I can just see 2cms of the top, I'll catch up later:0) I forgot to say how beautiful your red paper and fabric are, I love it, some photos are loading, it's weird, Gay xxx

Sherri said...

I'm so glad you are not hurt. I'm beginning to think the reason your hubby is so madly in love with you is because there is never a dull moment when you are around!

Your card is delightful, as always. The DP reminds me of an old quilt somehow. I love the whole look of it.

Rufus said...

I can picture you with your leg stuck through the floor. The idiot who owns the place is just lucky you didn't hurt yourself. So glad that you didn't! But it obviously didn't hurt your craftin' mojo! She's lovely peeking out of her flower. The papers remind me of vintage wallpaper! Something you'd know about, LOL
