Wow I made the 1500...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...wow you all seemed to love my button shaker card yesterday I had a fantastic number of comments and yes I passed the 1500 followers, thank you all so much you have no idea what your comments mean to me and I will catch up with you all tonight...so Sunday is candy day so keep an eye out for it...I had a super busy day yesterday and was so shattered last night I fell asleep mid commenting on someones blog, nothing to do with the blog as I was having a brill time surfing through their fantastic makes but I just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer...my lovely Dad rang me late in the evening saying his remote was broken and he had bought another one and couldn't make head or tail of the instructions at all, so I went up and I'm a real instruction freak, I read from front to back no matter what its for so I know what I'm doing but seriously people who wrote that booklet how on earth do you expect someone who isn't used to them to understand the gibberish in it...I managed but I can understand why my Dad didn't...I had this vision of a group of geeks sitting wetting themselves laughing at making the instructions into a book of totally pointless words, after all why write one word when you can have fifteen to say the say thing lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge...our host this time is the fabulous Deb and she chose the theme of Pretty soft Spring Pastels....I chose this stunning spring Tilda I cant remember her name though but she is a real spring image isn't she...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with paper from the beautiful Prima Fairy Belle 6x6 paper pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, its so pretty isn't it and I love all the fairies in it...I finished with some Seam Binding 1/2 inch Tile Blue from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and a beautiful Prima flower...the lush sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Charisma Cardz Challenge and the Crafters Cafe Blog Challenge...Its supermarket today with my Dad, the first thing I do with I win my millions is hire someone to food shop for me lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

Rufus said...

You forgot to mention that first they write the directions in some obscure language then translate it into 15 different ones each from the one before it, mind you, NOT the original...is it any wonder no one can figure the bloody things out??? Oh yes, I forgot, half the time it's WRONG and in the bottom of the box you'll find a slip of paper with a hastily written correction to page 768 paragraph 12 subsection 41!!!! Sorry,rant over, guess that hit a nerve!
