Fancy A Mid Week Quickie?

As the actress said to the bishop!  Bet you didn't expect to see me tonight - I should be having a nervous breakdown in Tesco (other annoying supermarkets are available).  Anyone else shop in Tesco?  Have you had a refit of the freezer cabinets?  Can you still reach the broad beans?  I have to stand around in the aisle now like a little lost soul and nab hold of the first tall person to come near me.  How on earth do they stock these cabinets anyway?  Open the door and throw the stuff in overarm?

Anyway, we've had a change of schedule as the Toad has been out for a meal after work (what he called "old cow and posh prawn but I think is referred to in better class establishments as Surf & Turf) so that left me tonight to craft and tomorrow night for groceries.


This tiny little card contains
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Papermania scraps and white card Distress Inked
Sentiment  Hero Arts
Extras  Doodlebug Twine

Right then, I'm off downstairs to enjoy an uninterrupted episode of Waterloo Road.  I'll be here bright eyed and bushy tailed in the morning for my first week as an Extra Fairy.

Hugs, Sxx

Great card. I shop at Asda, it can be as bad. I'm 5 foot nothing and had to buy tights for my daughter the other day, she's also short. Why do they put the small ones at the top when they're for people under 5'3"?? Enjoy Waterloo Road. I'm going to watch it now too xx

Super cute card Squirrel! I'm a Sava girl and struggle to, especially at the mo as I can't stretch. Hubby isn't much taller than me either but he usually manages for me.
Enjoy your evening of peace!

That is so funny you should mention that about not being able to reach things in shops, cos today I was in a supermarket here in Norway, I went to weigh my potatoes and the weighing maching/ basket thing was so high I could reach up to it! I asked a shop helper if he had a ladder and he laughed, it was hanging that high so that people didn't bump their heads on it?! I had to laugh! hehe
Lovley card you have made sweetie :O))
Have a good week!

Wishcraft said...

Fab card hun, I do love blue and orange together :o) As a bit of a short-arse it's always annoyed me how some things in shops can only be reached by very tall people... must be quite irritating for the tall people to be asked all the time too! Hugs, Lisa x

What a smashing card for a grey day, it's so bright and cheerful!

I'm short, too, I swear one day I'll be reaching for the last pack of frozen peas in Saino's and fall right into the freezer.....

Glad you got an unexpected craft night as you've produced another BEAUTIFUL card! Being tall (6ft) I don't struggle with supermarkets, but it's not a lot of fun when clothes shopping and all the sleeves and legs are too short :)

You're not the only one who has trouble reaching the top shelves! Trouble is, I usually try to reach and then end up with the whole shelf on top of me, you know what I'm like!

Lovely card and cute image. Love the paper and twine, very effective. xxx
