Willow Sketchie Challenge 25th June....

Good Afternoon,
Oh what a day...why do certain people think that they can speak to others like something stuck to the bottom of their shoe??!! We have a couple of guys who come in the shop...father and step son...they are soooo rude its unbelievable. No please or thank you's and always want this, that and the other as extras but don't want to pay. The son took the hump today as we were going to give him his sandwich in a small tray but he wanted a box!!!! Well he stamped his feet and walked out like a spoilt child that couldn't have his own way.
Don't get me wrong he could have his sandwich is what ever blooming tray, box or carton he wanted but it was his whole attitude that just got my back up. To be honest I hope they never step foot in the shop again...good riddance to 2 very badly mannered men!! The previous owner was ready to lamp them both one!! Ok sorry rant over and onto my card.....
Here's the sketch for the current challenge over on the Willow Sketchie blog....

I have used Willow Designs downloadable images and papers....
Sentiment from the new 'Margo' images coming very soon from Pollycraft.

A Little Treat & Our Sensible Car...

Look what the postie brought me today...I have been soooo good with my crafty spending lately that I thought it was about time I had a treat. I got these gorgeous Prima flowers and two Papermania kits...

And here's our sensible new car....we got it last week and although I was very sad to see the scooby go (even had a tear in my eye) I must admit that I am really liking this one.
We can't believe that a car can be so economical....lovely to drive too!!
