HELP!...

Good morning everyone have you got anything fantastic planned for the weekend, I would love to know what your up to...Phil rang me yesterday afternoon to say he would be home early and did I fancy going to Town for coffee, aaaahhhhh I thought brilliant because I needed to get a Hello Kitty Birthday present for my Niece...so we were walking around Tesco looking for hello Kitty stuff (which we didn't find) and this stupid woman who was totally oblivious to everyone and everything else picked up her basket and whacked me on the arm with it so hard it almost knocked me over, how ignorant is that...she didn't even say sorry or even acknowledge I was there either...well that was until I said to her as she was walking away 'I'm so sorry was my arm in the way of your basket there' (I know a bit cheeky but she asked for it)...I now have a huge red welt on my arm and four bruises, that shows how hard she hit me doesn't it...why are some people ignorant like that, if I caught someone with my basket I would be gutted and so apologetic...where have all the simple good manners gone...I think it makes it worse too that she was of my generation and age, didn't her parents teach her manners...ok rant over now lol...onto my card for today, I love love love this image she looks so tired doesn't she...she is of course from Saturated Canary and is called Pack Light, I used my usual distress inks to colour her and these lush coloured papers from the Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Vintage Marketplace from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I love this pack so much I might have to buy it again when its finished...I added some fantastic wooden letters and heart (I bought these in a pack for £1.99 from The Works...bargain) and finished with a pink satin ribbon and blue bow...the fab sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Creative Inspirations challenge ...btw I did find a fab Hello Kitty teddy and a cute little umbrella for my Niece at another shop just in case you were worried lol...Im packing (yes that again lol) a bit more today so nothing exciting for us this weekend...whatever your up to this weekend, I hope its something exciting and fun

Evil Edna said...

really cute and a feeling that most of us know. As for the woman in supermarket imagine pelting her with mini chesses, now smile because you have the manners not to. Put some lavender oil on the welts, it really helps them heal. Tootles EE

Clearly this is a self-portrait, Mina. Love the sentiment! I miss the good ol' days when most people were considerate of others too! Hugs, Lesley

christi said...

hi mina,
wow, i hate that lady whacked you so hard. rudeness just gets my blood boiling!

i have a question for you. you have hosted a couple of blog hops and i can never find out who has won them. am i juat daft? i check your posts and the other co's post and never see the winners listed. am i looking in the wrong place or do they just notify the winners separately?

i love your post from today. when i first opened it i though "oh my mina is doing a self portrait." it makes me think that image is how you feel with all of your packing and stuff.

my weekend has already started with fun. ... the creative keepsakes convention is in town and i went all day yesterday. my first class started before the show opened and i left about 5 min. before they booted us out. keep your head up. just think how much fun it will be when you get to the new place. of course after all of the work to get it to be your place. love your blog. thanks for keeping me laughing most days.

Adorable card. Can understand your rant, the ignorance is even more painful than the bruising at the time isn't it. Hugs lin

Mina,
Fantastic card! Love you coloring and the soft colors. Happy to see you here at SSW.

Rea said...

Hi Mina, super cute card. I understand your frustration with that woman in the shop. Here in the US I go through those kind of things all the time. People are so out for themselves, and rude these days. I always dread the older people in the shopping scooters too. I have had them literally hit me with there scooters. No apologies either. There attitude is you should have been out of their way. They think they should be the only ones shopping in an isle. Glad you found something for your niece. Happy for you with your new house, but I hate moving. Ha!

mulberry station said...

Yep, you totally have to wonder about some people anymore. I would have been felt so bad if I had done something like that. I hope you are ok and get feeling better soon.
Your card is stunning as always. I always love it when you stop by and join us. Your cards are fabulous!!

Your card is lovely Mina....hope your arm is ok! I am having a crazy weekend....Bill has been away for a week now & I have had plenty of time to get ready for the big flower,bake & craft show in our little town...BUT I am running around like a chicken with no head because I read my book all week instead of baking etc. etc!! I'll be up all night I'm sure! Oh well, the book was good!
Hugs, Renee

Lisa Lynn said...

Mina, Your card is just adorable. Love your coloring. Hope people will be more polite the rest of the weekend.

Kathie said...

Hi Mina I don't think good manners have gone out the window it's what we teach our children I have a 10 - 12 year old boys and I'm always being complemented on their lovely manners and opening doors for people. I've drummed it into them when they are little and it worked. You said this woman that hit you was a little older some people that reach that age think they should be respected but everyone has to earn respect she will never and if that had happened to me I would have been like you and said something as well good on you girlfriend. I do hope your arm is feeling better soon. Love your card this week I adore images from Saturated Canary this is ever so cute and I love your pastel shades. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
Hugs
