One of those days!

Ok I did the early shift at work this morning and when I came back around 9am (I get a break in between shifts) I parked my car, as usual outside my house. I was thinking about making myself a nice cuppa and hadn't even had the time to get out of the car when I heard ***BANG*** as a huge lorry went past, taking my wing mirror with it!!! One of the side doors on the lorry's trailer hadn't been shut properly and was swinging around as the driver was happily driving along. Just as well I was still in the car as it might have been my head that got whipped off! Anyway, the driver had to stop 'cos of the door, so we exchanged details and his company is footing the bill (I'm bl**dy sure 'cos didn't fancy paying the 100 euros for a wing mirror). I'm just glad it was the car and not me that got bashed! Then after that I went back to work and lets just say it wasn't the best day! Roll on the weekend!

On a nicer note I thought I'd share my latest card with you. Yesterday was my friend's birthday, so here's the little card I made for her! I've used the sketch by Donna on the Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge blog. The Tilda image was kindly sent to me as a RAK, isn't she cute?! She's coloured with Distress inks and w/c pencils.

I've took a couple of detail pics too, so you can see a bit closer up, I love the sentiment (a rub-on from Papermania), it says it all! The grosgrain ribbon is from Poppicrafts, the little gems, lace, heart charm and safety pin are from my stash. The paper is from Clover, I've had this in my stash for ages!

Thanks for looking, hope you had a better day than me xx

J'aime beaucoup le "sentiment" sur ta carte. C'est tellement vrai! Désolée pour le miroir de ton auto!!! Au moins ce n'est pas toi qui s'est fait frapper... mais c'est une mince consolation!
