a rant, a bit of news and an apple a day...

AAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHH Im officially fed up with BT two days of rubbish service and no advice then the advice given 'switch your modem off for three mins and that should sort it out'...duh like I havent thought of that...finally I have managed to upload so deep breath Mina and start again...
Good Morning everyone, well who took the sunshine back then, we have had, wind, rain and cold, I'm just waiting for the snow now lol...well Phil rang me last night and you were all right of course I shouldn't have worried hes fine being back at work...phew huge sigh of relief, but then you all knew he would be fine didn't you...I went shopping with my lovely Dad yesterday and I don't know if it was the weather or time of year or what but everyone seemed to be going mad, if people would just give a teeny bit of thought and not just abandon their trolleys to go get more shopping it would be most appreciated by people like my Dad who is disabled and me who has to move them out of his way...ooohhhh Im on a rant butthat's my rant for today over lol...I'm sure I will have another one tomorrow...oh oh oh I know what it will be too lol...anyway my card for today is using this fabulous Apple Pip stamp from Sugar Nellie, isn't she so fab, I love her hair, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush Websters Pages papers, haven't a clue with collection they are from and anyway I think all the collections seem to go together well, don't you...the fabulous sketch is from CLP Challenges and I'm also entering this for the Stampalot Challenge too...now before I go I have some news for you


this is the brand new release from Sugar Nellie and they will be on sale from Saturday 8th October over at Funkykits...this is a beautiful new release and you can see some sneak peeks over on the Sugar Nellie blog all this week...right that's me for today...I hope wherever you are you manage to get a bit of sun, I'm off for a crafting day in my craft room, I am in desperate need of sorting out my mojo atm...have a good one

Mina I hate it when people just leave trolleys in the way!
It's very selfish, not to think it may be in other peoples way.
I do love this gorgeous new pip, didn't know they had added two more pips.
Beautiful card!
Love, Mel. xx
