a 'none abusive' post...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy and well on your way to being sorted for Christmas...would you believe someone on Facebook got my blog post removed from it yesterday, apparently it was considered abusive????...I never thought I would be chucked out of anywhere for being abusive lol...I wonder was someone found abusive about that card, I thought as cards go it wasn't too bad but then who am I to judge...although saying Im not abusive might be a stretch as I almost had an argument in a card shop, its ok I wasn't buying but my lovely Dad wanted some cash envelopes for his Grandchildren and I didn't have time to make them all and at £1 for 7 I couldn't have made them cheaper...anyway off the point as usual, the place was crammed to the doors and I was standing in a huge queue, got almost to the front when someone just walked to the front when a till was empty...well nobody in front of me was going to say anything so of course up marches Mina taps her on the shoulder and says 'Theres a queue you know...wanna join it'...you wont believe her answer 'oh I didn't see it'...ok now I'm a little distracted at time but never enough not to see a huge queue and walk to the front lol...she joined the end and when I got to the till the assistant said 'well done people jump to the front all the time'...I was gobsmacked, is it just me but wouldn't it be logical to just tell them they need to join the end of the queue and not leave it up to their customers to do it...we are too scared to complain in Britain don't you think, everyone will have a grumble about something like that but wont say anything...go figure...anyway now onto my 'none offensive' card for today (well hopefully anyway lol)...how gorgeously cute is this little sweetie from Saturated Canary, its called Spritz and I coloured it with distress inks...I love that cute little face don't you...the amazing papers are from the Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, did you know there's a massive 15% off a whole range of goodies in the Christmas Shop atm too so hop on over to grab a bargain or two or if your anything like me, a lot lol...I finished my card with some fab brown gingham ribbon, a bow and a cute little wooden heart button...the lush sketch is from Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge and I'm also entering it for the Whimsy Stamps challenge and the Lollipop Crafts challenge too...Its supermarket day today with my lovely Dad and I still have to put up his decorations and finish our living room tree...theres no rest for the wicked is there lol...whatever your up to today watch out for those selective sighted queue jumpers

Had to come over right away after reading your intriguing intro in my blog list. Love today's image. I do hope his almost bare body won't offend some of your readers, though, LOL.

wow, just went back and looked to see what was "bad" about yesterdays post. it obviously didn't scar me for life. can't say it left me trembling. perhaps the fb er was a bad boy and had a problem with santa baby? go figure. there are peoples id pics that scare me more than this and they are there.

Anne said...

Mina sometimes when I click on a picture on Facebook to get a better look I click on the X to close it and then it asks me if I want to report it as abusive. Maybe that is what the person did in error. I'm sure you wouldn't post anything that was bad. I love all your cards and like to keep up with your antics everyday on here although I don't often post comments. Thank you for keeping me entertained each day.

Great card Mina. This little guy is adorable. Hope this one doesn't get removed from Facebook for frontal nudity. Lol.

mags said...

A lovely card Mina. The image is so cute and love your fab papers and colours. Well done on tackling the queue jumper too. Sometimes people just need reminding about manners.

OMG I hate when that happens! And I always say something, it just isn't fair if you behave in this manner!!!! And what an answer:" I didn't see it." OMG I would lost it. Well I think that some people (I would say many)think that general ruls just don't apply to them anymore. Wellll ... I love your card, especially the gorgeous papers and oh such an adorable image. Hugs! Mojca

Renee said...

Had to go back and look at your post from yesterday...couldn't imagine you posting anything offensive...figure it had to be some puritan prude who took offense to that gorgeous card! Love the little cutie on todays card! Have a great day.
Hugs, Renee

OMG!!! That is so ridiculous about FB, that it is funny. However, my husbands friends have been getting threatened by FB to have their accounts closed down, for sharing their own personal political and religious beliefs. I guess we are on the verge of loosing free speech. And now that the UN wants to monitor our internet usage, it will surly make alot of changes. And I see the same problems here with people butting in line, I spoke up to a woman about it at a supermarket, and she became so hostile the whole store could hear her. I had to call the manager over to deal with her, and he was so concerned for me, he asked if he could walk me to my car. People think they are so self important, and if you challenge them about it, that is how they act. Well, adorable card and hugs to you Mina.
