I have a little story for you – feel free to skip. hahaa
I had something really weird happen to me today and I thought I would share because it is a little bit funny.
I’ll start by explaining that I have kept some very odd hours this week, more odd than usual as I have been really busy trying to do lots of stuff. Wednesday I was actually awake for 26 hours being pestered by my team about making some new laser cut decorations – POINTS FINGER at LYDIA!!! So that is the background…
Today however I woke up as normal, pottered around getting ready for the day. Got myself organised and begun doing my list of things. I had all my orders packed and went off to the post office only to find that the queue was so long it was hanging out the door. I waited around for a little while to see how fast the queue was moving but only one person had exited and I was thinking this is crazy, I’ll just come back tomorrow.
So I come home, have a number of things on the go that I check up on and finally I sit down for a moment to have a coffee. I went to see what the weather was going to be like over the next few days and it said… “For the rest of Friday…” and my heart sank.
Today was FRIDAY!! not Thursday!!! I quickly checked the time and I couldn’t believe it was 4:59 exactly. Post Office would be closed by the time I stood up! (So I need to apologise to my customers for not sending off your parcels today)
But the thing is, I have had clues ALL DAY and it never dawned on me. I wanted to go into town earlier and DH said, oh you wouldn’t want to go Friday arvo it will be crazy, and I remember thinking to myself, yeah well today is Thursday so shouldn’t be too bad. Another clue was when I was talking with a client of mine and I was in a hurry and said – well we could catch up tomorrow and he was like well we could wait until Monday and I just thought, well OK then.
So I SERIOUSLY lost a WHOLE day. It is the such a bizarre feeling.
On to the Card and NEW image!!
So after losing a whole day I realised I was behind AND I hadn’t shared a card with you for ages so I thought it would be fun to colour up one of my new images ‘Geeky Love‘. Which is now available in store.
I just think they are ADORABLE! I had a little competition on Face book to name them and with so many choices it was quite difficult but I finally decided they would be named, Calvin and Sophie. Hopefully we might see more of these two in the future. 🙂
I had a bit of fun and when I began to colour Sophie I decided she should be wearing a tartan skirt and of course to tie in with my stereotypical ‘geeky’ theme Calvin is wearing a diamond decorated woolen cardigan. heehee
I faintly drew on the design with a lead pencil before colouring with copics. Sorry I don’t recall all the colours but I I used the new ‘Make it Colour‘ card stock (that my team are all raving about!!) and I have just got more in stock so grab it while it’s hot! heehee
I made a very basic clean card so they would be the centre of attention and added a few flowers from WOC, curled wire and some ribbon to decorate.
The ‘Be Mine’ tag will SOON be available in rubber for just a few dollars!! I plan to make a few different designs as I think they are so cute to tuck into little spaces. I always have trouble trying to decide where to place a sentiment which is often why I don’t have one!!
I would like to share my card today with the following challenges!
- ColourQ – colour challenge
- Wild Orchid – Let’s get sentimental
- Aud Sentiments – Use a Love Sentiment
- Rainbow Ladies – Use something Scottish
- Tuesday Throwdown – Valentine
If I have missed some questions you were waiting on an answer for please post again. I had so many comments recently that I may have missed it.
Thanks so much for popping by today and I do hope you will go and grab yourself this gorgeous little couple ‘Geeky Love‘ and have a play too. Maybe my challenge to you is to decorate their clothing too!!
