Three Little Angels - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Hello peeps,
I'm not a happy girl today, well I'm pretending to not be a happy girl anyway as the husband & the daughter are both in the dog house!
First of all the husband & Gareth were both working a sleep over shift last night & hubby phoned to say goodnight & asked "shall we go out for a carvery tomorrow?" & I said no I'll cook a chicken casserole or ....... but before I could finish my sentence & say cook a roast Mr Stacey piped up "not more of your glutenous, tasteless, muck"!!!!! Gasp! I have never pretended to be any good at or even like cooking but there's no need to be so flipping rude is there lol.
This morning I woke up full of cold & as I went downstairs heading for the kettle & I looked out into the porch and could see compost & a couple of branches off my big Bonsai tree on the rug and then noticed half of my lovely cup and saucer plant pot was smashed on the floor, the table it was on had moved a couple of  feet & there stuffed between the Bonsai's trunk & the wall was Jodie's devil fancy dress costume & shoes, no prizes for guessing who was drunk last night, naughty girl lol.
The annoying thing is I only brought in in from the garden a couple of days ago as I loved that pot & didn't want the frost to crack it, it probably stood more chance of it surviving the frosts instead of an encounter with Jode lol.

Today is new challenge day at

I'm so annoyed I've a cold as the art of scowling is lost when you have to keep your mouth open to breathe, you just look like an idiot lol.
That's me done for today peeps, I'm just off out to drop hubby and devil dog off by the river so they can have a long walk back and our dear old Dude & I can have some peace :)

  5. Lol, that situation sounds rightly familiar to me Mandy :P Last year after not drinking in months, I went out for Halloween (with a devil costume too coincidentally :P) and got so drunk (off three drinks I might add) that my boyfriend had to hold my hair back as I threw up into a pint glass and had to call my mother to come and collect me equipped with a plastic tub for the journey home lol...I'm sure she's just so proud of me :P

    Your card is fab, I love the image and the colours and sparkle are so pretty :)

  7. Hi sweetie,
    Oh dear - have you forgiven her yet?? When Amie used to get like that and I ranted at her - she used to say "it's called having fun with my friends mum! - Don't suppose you remember that?" - honestly how rude. LOL
    Poor Ian - perhaps he should learn how to put his brain into gear before opening his mouth eh? I think it's a man thing hunni!!!
    Gorgeous card sweetie - love the soft colours and all your embellies - totes amazeballs!! LOL
    big hugs

  63. Wow that is alot of stress for one day, I do not blame you for being quite upset with them. I hope now things are good and everyone is doing better.
    Your card is divine and so sweet. I love the little snowflake embellishments and the florals are so dainty and in perfect place. The angels are kind of a contrast to the bad day you had, they are sweet, on clouds praying, how cute is that.

  79. OK, I'm going to have to follow your blog not only because you make the kind of cards I aspire to make someday but also because your writing is so entertaining. Dog house indeed! Glad I discovered your blog, and hopefully the two miscreants will behave better for you going forward (though I realize this happened a couple of weeks ago)! Hope you're feeling better by now!
