For sale!

Hi blogworld

Here I am again, having survived a whole day in Skegness Pier!  As said spent the morning in adventure play area - well the kids did.  Me and my friend sat and chatted while they charged around behind the mesh.  Emily did get a bit annoyed with her friend at one point - she went down a very big slide with the promise that he was coming down right behind her, then he scarpered!!!  You could hear her from the other side of the room going - that's not fair, come back here Ryan, come back here!!!

Afternoon was spent bowling and they loved it!  Not sure the staff appreciated all the thumps there were when I kept dropping the blooming balls.  Been near on 20 years since I last went bowling and I used to be, note used to be!, quite good at it!  Oh the years have not been kind ;-)

Today we had a quiet day in, still not done any housework tho!  Been getting the holiday cottage ready, it's let for a week from tomorrow and as it's the first let this year it needed a good clean and dust.  Oh and made an Apple Danish pastry - very nice.

So card this time, seeing all the mini cards appearing in blogworld I thought I'd have a go as well.  This is the result.  Another card made for a reason and sent - get me!!  Sorry it's a bit wonky, for once it's not the picture - it's something I got wrong when I popped the image on so the card ended up being at a slant!  Oh well, know for next time.

I used:

Stampin Bella - Izzy has a Daisy, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
The card was made with my largest nestie scalloped circle and paper and image cut with various size circle nesties.
Paper is a scrap - think it's from one of the First Edition paper pads, but not sure which one.
Flowers are Prima (had 'em ages) and gems from my stuff.

And finally, why the post title?  Well as we put Emily to bed tonight, I said something mumsy (can't remember exactly what) and she said that I can't mustn't say that and that if I keep on she would put me up for sale!!!!!  So what do you think you would get for a (ahem!) slightly plump, over the hill, out of MOT product of the 70's?  Made hubby laugh anyway - he told Em that he'd been trying to sell me for ages, but couldn't get anyone to buy me!  She did say when I was tucking her into bed, that she is sure she won't have to sell me as I'm going to be good now!

So off I toddle to bed again!

Hope you are all well, and not being put up for sale.

Christine L said...

HI Sarah
Love hearing your tales of being a Mum... and this one made me chuckle!

Loving your mini card... like Laurie says, very addictive, I can't resist making them now! My first was slanted too... I figured out that when I cut it, I need to have two of the scallops just slightly over the edge of the nestie before I cut... then it sits right as a card. I even tape them there to cut it to make sure!! LOL

Aww your post really made me smile Sarah :)

I used to love bowling, but havent done it for about 6 years when we had a work 'do'. I thought I was much better than I was! LOL

Your mini-card is so sweet. I made a smaller card for our CAS challenge last time, and even though its 5 x 5 it felt tiny in my hands! :)

Really sweet image and pretty papers and colouring hun.

I had to chuckle at Abi's idea of a crafty get-together in your holiday cottage, I would be on the beach me! :D

Your Emily sounds like such a laugh!
