why are we waiting...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...I'm either sitting waiting impatiently for the engineer to come fit my new super fast modem or watching him fit it, I hope its the latter...I hate waiting about for people don't you but I guess it will give me some time to empty boxes etc, oh no does that mean I don't have an excuse to go out now then lol...I will bet you a fiver the boxes are emptied faster than they were filled, it takes longer to sort out than put sorted stuff away doesn't it...I suppose I could use the time to rip up the mingy stair carpet...or not lol...right now onto my card for today which is using one of my favourite digis from Sugar Nellie, this is the beautiful Sybil from the Simply Adorable collection...I love love love this collection don't you...I coloured her with distress inks and used some beautiful paper I found in my stash...its from S.E.I and is called Poppy/Pelican I finished with a huge silk bow, some organza ribbon and a red button to hopefully bring the red out...I have totally lost all timing for challenges and as I'm not online wont enter it for any...keep your fingers crossed for me that I get online sometime today as I'm sure I'm having withdrawal symptoms by now lol...have a fabulously good day everyone
