woo...hooo.....I am on my way

Morning folks...hopefully by the time you read this I will be well on my way to Glasgow...sitting comfortably..enjoying a coffee and no doubt reading the newspaper....chugging my way south on the First Scotrail Express to the SECC....and fingers crossed Mr Blogger has done as I asked...or I am talking to myself.
Boy oh boy it's been a real busy week and I know that I am going to thoroughly enjoy my day out meeting up with all my lovely buddies and no doubt making one or two little purchases.
Remember the cards for Allsorts yesterday....yes the ones that I thought needed a little bit of oomph
BEFORE


AFTER

JUST A LITTLE BIT OF RED ADDED...MAKES THE WHOLE CARD POP
and time for the sneaky peek...yes I'm afraid only one....I won't have a Polkadoodle card this week.....basically I just ran out of time.

and have to share this with you all.....out of the mouths of babes.....Brodie my delish little grandson is as bright as a button and 5 going on 55.....and what was the cause of me being well and truly put in my place and it just goes to show that you can't pull the wool over a child's eyes....well not all of the time.


as we sat at the kitchen table having our breakfast....I could see Brodie eyeing up my mug.....and the conversation went like this......

"Grandma....your cup says Kit Kat"
"Yes" I replied....I got it with a "Kit Kat" Easter Egg....you know Kit Kat the biscuit.
"Well Grandma.... that isn't how you spell CAT"....it is not a kicking K....it's a curly C" but Grandma...do you know that KITTEN has a kicking K why is that?
Hoping that he would then get on to another topic....too early in the morning to try and explain the strange ins and outs of the English language.....but OH NO.....he carried on.....

"Let's play a game......I will say a letter and you have to tell me something that begins with it" and my first letter was "N"..so I said....NAUGHTY....NICE.....began to struggle at this point and in a silly moment said..KNICKERS...well quick as a flash he said "Grandma...Knickers doesn't start with "N"....it has a Kicking K at the beginning but you don't say it.....that was me suitably put in my place by
"THE CUTEST LITTLE MR KNOW-IT ALL".
need to watch my P's and Q's in future.
Will catch up with you all tomorrow with all the gossip from my very mad but oh so friendly group of crafty buddies and what I bought at the SECC.....

Oops! too late... I wanted to make a comment on your previous post, saying the cards needed absolutely nothing extra.

They are fine "after", but I loved them better "before". Is it OK for me to I say that?

Unfading Spring said...

Whatever you do is fine with me, I love all your cards.
Looks like Brodie is going to be a super star.
Enjoy your out, and looking forward to seeing your purchases.

Big Hugs Carol x
