Hope you have all had a better day than me!!!
But more of that in a sec ....
Firstly, here is the card I sneaky peekied yesterday.
Yep, it is one of my new Penny Black stamps (coloured with the usual bad boys!!). This is another of my cards for the new Raspberry Ribbons
Tutti Fruity kit. I thought that fabby yellow checked ribbon went so well with the paper. Mind you I can't remember where I got the paper from cos it was a freebie, sorry. I can remember where I got the black and white striped paper from cos it is one of my faves - PP
of course!! The sentiment is from the Lollie download from pc Crafter
I love the sentiment!!
And as it's nearly Easter (ish!!), I thought I'd do a pop up Easter card. The cute bunny is from the Woodware Easter Bunnies set and this is similar to one of the cards we are going to be doing on the next Creative Pastimes workshop. Again the spotty fab papers are PP and the PMs were dragged out - no rest for the wicked there!!! These cards are easy peasy to do and they fold flat for posting - fabulous!!
Aren't those colours just gorge? I love this combi although I do only tend to use it at this time of year.
And a sneaky peaky for tomorrow - wooo, what is that?
Could it be a MSBP perhaps?
All will be revealed tomorra xx

Now, back to the crappiness that has been today.
Well the workout did not get done and I am not amused quite frankly. You know what happened at Crimbly re the drunked sod who decided to go stock car racing through our hedge at 1.30am (if you are new to the pig sty, or you missed it, you can check it out here
). Well, the gardners came to start the repair work yesterday. I had been told that the damaged bit of the hedge could be replaced with an established one and although it would cost mega moulah, as the drunk's insurers were coughing up, the cost was not really an issue for me.
So, the new posts are in, and they told me yesterday that the hedges would be delivered today and that they pretty much had to go in straight away. So, the gardeners arrived bright and early and before long, there was a knock at the door. 'Can you come outside cos I need to talk to you', says one of the gardeners. I of course am still in me pjs cos I am waiting to do a bit of blubber shaking with my new best friend Camilla, so I have to go and get dressed. So I go out and there is the delivery man from the nursey holding what can only be described as a bunch of twigs with the odd leaf on. Nothing like the established hedge I had been led to believe - they had just sent bare root plants.
Well to say that I was not happy is an understament, and in true Basil Faulty mode I told them that there was no way that I was accepting them (I might have said it a bit more forcefully that that and I might have even swore). Honestly, I could have put those hedges where the sun don't shine!!!
So after standing outside arguing for over half an hour in what felt like Baltic conditions, he went away. The gardeners were just bewildered cos I must have turned into some kind of ranting she devil. They said they knew I would not be happy with them as soon as they saw them, and they were not really what they had asked for.
So now we are practically back to square one and the whole thing is a mess. I just keep thinking how much more do we have to suffer cos this moron chose to drink and drive. And to put the top hat on it, I am coming down with a nasty cold again, no doubt cos I was outside for ages instead of jiving and mambo-ing in the warrm - grrrrr.
There was one nice thing today though - I received a gorgeous card and parcel from the sweetness that is Dawn
and it really cheered me up. Thank you so much for that darlin - you are such a love and it was really kind of you mmmwwwaaahh and hugs xxxx
So I am off to sit by the fire with a nice warm drink and my fleecy dressing gown (I call it my cosy lolxx) and snuggle up to the Tricky-meister and watch the telly.
I shall return tomorra with some more paper stuff.
Have the most fabby weekend peeps xxxxx
