You did WHAT at lunchtime?

Last week, two of Toad's work colleagues went out for lunch, we'll call them A and B, but an hour later neither of them returned.  In the hustle and bustle of the office it was a while before anyone noticed they had not come back.  Some while later, B returns and was, not unnaturally, questioned about where she and A had been all this time and where was A now.  "She's in hospital" says B "She went into labour buying her lunch so I got her to hospital and now she's had the baby".

That has to be the best excuse ever for being late back from lunch!  A and baby Jack are both fine and well even though he was a bit earlier than expected.  Toad blames the fact that their lift has been out for weeks and everyone is having to tackle six floors worth of stairs every day.

Which early arrival brings me nicely to my entry for this week's Lili's Little Fairies - Monochrome Challenge (skin and hair permitted)

Ingredients for this little bundle of joy are:
Stamped Image LOTV Baby With Teddy
Papers Papermania Blueberry Capsule Collection
Punches & Dies Martha Stewart embossed button punch, Nesties star die (smallest),
Martha Stewart border punch, Memory Box Parker Lower Alphabet dies
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers) Salty Ocean and Tattered Rose
Amazing how different whites can be isn't it - I thought the spotty paper was white until I put the die cut letters on the card, which were just from a scrap of Rymans white card!

Thanks for popping over
Hugs, Sxx

I'm going to try that today.... go to lunch and not come back. Then say I went into labor. Think they'll buy it since I'm not preggers?

I went to lunch once with my friend and he got drunk so I had to call a coworker to come get me. I had nothing to drink like a good little worker.

I went to lunch once with my boss and his truck died and I teased him, "Oh, that old trick! I'm not falling for it!"

Those lunch hours are fraught with danger!

GREAT baby card. The gingham and the dots go so well together, not over whelming and they just scream B A B Y ! ! !
