just when you think its all over...it isnt...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and happy...oooohhhh I forgot to tell you yesterday my lovely Dad was getting out of his car on Monday and tripped, he hit the edge of the door with his eye and he has a massive shiner, the poor thing looks like he has gone ten rounds with someone but luckily he missed his eye as its the one he just had surgery on...he says if anyone asks hes going to tell them I beat him up...he has a wicked sense of humour lol...now just when you think all the lifting and humping of furniture is over...it isn't...our new sofas arrive today at long last which meant we had to spend last night pulling and shoving one of the old sofas into my craft room and the other into a spare room ready for dumping...I asked the woman on the phone who rang to tell me about the delivery what time they would come...no set time would you believe it can be anything from 7am to 7pm...now normally I wouldn't mind but I have spent the last two days indoors and am itching to get out and about even if its just for a coffee or mooch around the shops...oh well at least they are arriving before our holidays as I thought I would have to spend hours on the phone explaining we were on holiday and for them not to deliver while we are away...right now onto my card for today which is using one of the new digis from Crafts and Me...this stunner is by the amazing Hannah Lynn...isn't she so beautiful...her name is Kyra and I coloured her with distress inks...I have no idea what make this fantastic paper is as it came from my scrap stash but I had to use it the colours are just perfect for her don't you think...I finished with a couple of strip of wired ribbon and a fabulous butterfly charm...I love this charm don't you, it came from a local shop, I must get some of their charms for a candy I think as they are fabulous...the sketch is from Sketch N Stash challenge...well I better find something to do to pass the time today...I might start some door painting upstairs...I wont start downstairs as cream streaks on new sofas isn't a good look is it lol...whatever your up to today I hope you manage to get out and about

Mina,
Your card is gorgeous! Love that paper with your beautifully colored image. Yesterday I went to Cosco and a 90 year old lady fell in the parking lot and gashed her nose, knee, and hand. I waited with her and her daughter until an ambulance arrived. I think her daughter was going to drive her to the hospital to be evaluated but it must have been the day for people to fall. Hope your Dad will alright.
