Monday TicTacToe Challenge
I hope that you are all well after a very blustery weekend, my goodness that wind had a bite to it, it was definitely a 'stay at home' kind of weekend. We have a lot a standing water around here as well after a considerable amount of rain over past few days, all we need now is a frost and the roads will be treacherous!
I thought I would choose a TicTacToe challenge for this week, it seems a popular choice with all of you and you can make virtually any card for any occasion using it. This one has something for everyone, birds for Lilian 😉, we all use die cuts, its always great to have a 'Masculine' choice, particularly for Karen this week, maybe an eclipse card???😜
In all seriousness its a great grid for spring cards, which is something we all look forward to making after all of those Christmas cards. Although I bet that Michele could make a Christmas card out of this grid, maybe that should be an EXTRA challenge!!
I am excited to see what you all make, I just love those messages!!
I am getting the Soap Box out, can someone give me a hand climbing up??……
I ordered the Freddie Mercury Biography from The Works on Friday and a couple of other things that I needed, paid for fast delivery as a couple of things were needed for girls for Sunday. Anyway, we were going to be out for a few hours so I did what we always do and left a note for the parcel to be left either in Greenhouse or the little potting shed, both were left unlocked and are clearly visible.
We got back at about 4.45 after visiting Pat, popping to garden centre and then popping into town to a little tea room for a cup of tea and a piece of cake, just to kill time until we needed to collect girls from work. As we pulled up onto the drive I could see the box by the back door, where it had been since 11am in the pouring rain, I took it inside didn't need to use scissors to open as the box all but collapsed, lucking 3 of the things were in cellophane but my book wasn't and the water has soaked the top corner, causing the cover to tear. Hermes were the courier used, you would think that they had enough experience to not leave a card board box in the bloomin rain!!
I have photographed everything and emailed The Works to complain, so watch this space!!
But thats not all, I have bought some Travellers Note Book printable images/kits and have been desperate to have a go but I am having serious printer issues, now it may well be our own fault as we have used 'Compatible' inks, for our printer, the colours are printing out totally wrong and the images aren't 'sharp' enough! So I got Paul to get our older printer out of the loft, I ordered a new cable for it as we had misplaced it in the move, we got it all set up but it needed Light Cyan ink, so on Friday I rang a local company, thinking we could go and collect but that wasn't an option, he did however promise me faithfully that if I ordered by 4pm he would guarantee that it would be here Saturday Morning...….well I guess he wasn't quite as genuine as I thought, his invoice arrived ok, but no ink, so I called and asked where it might be, I also said that as he was less than 5 miles away maybe he could keep his promise and deliver it. His response was '' I can't do anything about Royal Mail Delivery times', 'your issue is with them, not me''! I think he knew full well that they wouldn't arrive on time. But the result of his bad business attitude is that I will tell everyone not to use his Ink supply company.... so ladies do not use ''Ink Save''
That is my rant over, so if someone could help me down, we can stow the Soap Box back under the stairs for next time! Thanks for listening....it's good to talk!! lol, hahahha
I hope that you all have a lovely week,
Love and hugs to all of you,
