listen for the sirens...

Good morning everyone...well the busted sofa look has gone thank goodness and at least I'm tidy and presentable for our holidays much to Phil's relief...thank you all so so much for the lovely comments on the house photos yesterday, you all seem to really like what we are doing...btw for the couple of people who mentioned it the sofas aren't leather they are like a tweedy type fabric...oh btw when I was leaving for the hairdressers yesterday guess what happened the front door lock broke, it was just spinning and wouldn't lock at all, luckily Phil had replaced the glass in the porch door (remember he had to smash when I got locked out) and it has bolt locks inside so at least I got out...I think we have a lock gremlin lurking in the skirting boards waiting to see which one he can sabotage next lol...my Dad keeps telling people that he was cheeky to me and I gave him the black eye before laughing and saying that he did it on the car door...I fully expect the police to arrive to arrest me for assault so am listening for the sirens, he thinks its hilarious lol...right now onto my card for today...I must admit I have a real soft spot for these gorgeous Morehead stamps...now look at that hat and the cut dungarees, how cute is she...this is part of the Morehead Acrylic Stamp Set - Raindrops set and the sentiment is from the same set too...I used more of my favourite pad, I love this Carta Bella - Beautiful Moments 6x6 Paper Pad and I'm going to be gutted when its all used up...the little banner I stamped onto is cut from the same pad too...I finished with some lush white satin trimmed organza ribbon and a bow, a rose from the Flat Back Rose Cabochons - Mixed Bag and a few gems from the Mixed Bag Clear Flat Acrylic Round Gems - 3mm, 4mm & 5mm...everything expect the ribbon is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Bearly-mine challenge and Try it on Tuesday challenge too...right I'm finishing my posts for while I'm away, oh and btw I will have more candy on offer on Sunday after the newest candy finishes...whatever your up to listen for the sirens then follow as fast as possible to get me out lol

Glad to hear that you'll be looking all lovely for your holiday. That is, of course, if you aren't locked up in the hoosegow! LOL. You do sound like you've got lock gremlins lurking. Maybe they'll get bored while you are on holiday and go live with somebody else.
