For a friend

Hi Everyone! I know I'm being sporadic with my blogging again! I have been at work a fair bit and then the kiddies are keeping me on my toes with being home for the holidays!
Then we also bought a new car, well new as in a new second hand one. We always seem to do this... shall we buy a dog? let's just go and look oops we bought one, now it's shall we buy a new car? (ours is old and I mean old like W reg) let's just see what's about oops we bought a car!
We have a W reg zafira (needed for our sized family) and it has always been superb we have had to spend little on it but we have had it for 5 years and I think hubby wants something a bit newer so we have bought a 54 reg Toyota Corolla Verso. I was a really mean hard faced nightmare for the salesman too lol! It took over 2 hours to get what we wanted on price and have some things sorted on the car and he brought it down to 4250 (it's low mileage) but I wouldn't pay over 4200 he was like "it's only £50" yep so you can drop that off the price then can't you! He wouldn't budge and hubby was gonna cave in but I dug my feet right in and said I'm happy to drive home in what we have it's a perfectly good car! He said he wished he could do more but that was the lowest he could go so I got up and went and got the kids! Shortly after he found hubby and said 4200 lol it's only £50 but it's my £50! Ha ha ha I think they probably swore about me after I left!
I do have a card to show you today and it's made with an image I have had coloured up for a week but just haven't got around to making the card up!
It's another one of those fab Mo's images and this is Two Tasha she is so much fun! I remember these days with my kiddies (still have them sometimes!)
I have used MME Miss Caroline papers again with an MS border punch, flowers from WOC, butterfly from E crafts and sentiment from Inkadinakdoo.
I have coloured Tasha with prisma pencils. I know with this style "afro" hair she should probably be darker skinned but she was screaming out fair skin and ginger hair to me!
I have inked all the edges in vintage photo and machine stitched.
I am entering this into...
Mo's challenge In the dog house (she certainly is or is putting someone there!), Crafty Catz all that glitters (my butterfly and flowers have sparkles), Secret crafter bright and cheerful, Totally gorjuss pearls and Whoopsidaisy lots of layers.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again, I am going to try harder to get by all of yours soon!
It is the last day for my CANDY today!
Hugs

Lol, Rebekah you sound exactly like me! I could bargain and hustle til the cows came home, teehee. Well done on the new car. As soon as I start to bargain, my hubby gets embarrassed and walks away. But as soon as he realises the great bargain I get and how much money I saved..... he's all delighted! Men! Heehee. Gorgeous card too, I love that image its so funny. Lee x

Ps......how could she do that to our poor wee Robert Pattinson!!!?!! Is she crazy? Obviously she must be!

Craftdee said...

Oh honestly, this could be us... we have a perfectly good car, my hubby has a newer one than I, but mine has really low kms then he starts with the "I'm just looking" and now - as in today - my registration is due and I go to pay the twelve months as usual and he says "pay six, just in case" ...I know what the "case" is, don't know how long I'll be able to hold him off, I swear he does these things from boredom! It's also more or less how we got our dog (we're never having another dog, aw he's cute, oops, dog owners!) our pizza oven, our solar power, our....... you get the drift. I love your card, I think fair and ginger is PERFECT! and I love your colour palette, TFS, Donna ☺
