Chris the sheep...

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a brilliant week and are looking forward to an even better weekend...I bet your all thinking shes finally got packing fever and gone nuts judging by the post title...but then there will be a teeny few of you that know what it means...isn't it funny how you can watch something over and over and still find it hysterically funny, I was sorting through a box of stuff last night and it was just one of those things I didn't want to leave as I knew I would struggle to get back to it so after Phil went to bed I watched a double episode of Father Ted on Tv while I was sorting...yes one of them was the Chris the Sheep episode, so so funny and I chuckled and laughed all the way through it, then felt daft cause I was by myself lol...if you have never seen an episode of Father Ted hop on over to YouTube and see if you can find it, its brilliant...we went to the Supermarket yesterday and then popped into an electrical store to look at dishwashers as mine is very old and I was thinking of a new one, the assistant came over and asked if she could help and I was chatting to her saying I fancied a new one but was sure my Husband would say although ours is old its fine when my Dad strolled over...the assistant says to my Dad, I'm sure you will agree with your wife she should get a new dishwasher lol...now either I look old or my Dads looking very young for his age, I didn't know if I should laugh or cry lol...I think maybe a face lift should go onto my wish list asap...anyway time for my card info now, how adorable is this fantastic I Dunno (redux), although I thought the original was fantastic I must admit this one is even cuter, she is of course from Mo's Digital Pencil...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush Websters Pages papers, I'm sorry I don't know their name as they weren't a full sheet but they are fab aren't they...I added a ribbon and bow in blue and a heart charm and finished with a couple of pearls...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop challenge and I'm also entering it for the Inky Impressions challenge and the Fab 'N' Funky Challenge too...I'm on another packing day duty today, will it never end but it will be worth it I just wish it wasn't taking so so so so long...whatever your up to today have a fab one

Ha ha ha, something similar happened to me with a friend's daughter when some market stall bloke suggested she check with mum about her choice of jeans - as I am only ten years older than her (mid 20s at the time) I was mortified. Gorgeous card hun, love that super cute image and soft colours, so sweet. Right, off to find Father Ted for a trip down Memory Lane. Have a super day. Hugs Sxx

wow Mina gorgeous card as always, love the image, the bow and charm really finish it off.
I was with my dad one day who had not had a shave and had gone out in his old clothes, i went into a building society and he followed, well the lady behind the counter said to me i am sure that strange man is casing the place, i am going to set my alarm off under the counter. well i said its alright its just my dad. i don't know who was more embarrased her or me.
