Lets Shop.

Wednesday again and time for another of Mrs A's Bloomers so pull up a chair and stay a while. 
Today I'm back at the same job as before but 5 yrs down the line and gone through a fair few bosses by now but that is not the main story.
The office I worked in was just a stones throw from the High St so it was very convenient  to use you lunch hour for essential shopping! We had a 'Next' at the other end of the street to the office but if you got your skates on you could get down there and back in the hour.  I had seen a dress the day before that I had my eye on and decided I'd go back for it the following day and try it on before buying (as you do). I had a Finance meeting to go to straight after lunch but reckoned I had plenty of time so off  I sped.  Yep they had the dress in my size so a quick whizz into the changing room to try it on. Hmm, did I didn't I . A twirl this way and that and yes I finally decided I would buy it. Gosh was that the time? A quick change, pay at the desk, grab my carrier and a mad dash back up the high street. Phew, made it just in time. 
The meeting duly over I was back sitting at my desk when one of my colleagues walked past and then came back and stood in front of my desk, gave me a strange look and asked 
"Why are you wearing your dress inside out???" . 

Coloured using Promarkers and Pearlescent chalks.

Oh my...I wonder what the people in the meeting thought you were up to on your lunch hour!

Great image on this card! She looks like a force to be reckoned with and I bet she never puts her dress on inside out!!!

A wonderful card and there's better for that feel good feeling than a little bit of retail therapy.

I love my Wednesdays at Mrs. A's yarn shop! Just kidding, I know they are too funny NOT to be true and I love them! I wonder if you spark memories in others like you always do in me. Sharing is fun like that and so are trips down memory lane. Hope you are feeling better, Mrs. A! Big hugs! xxoo Darnell

PS Love your stickeroo and goosey cards in your prior posts, too!!

Just had to hop in before I trot off to bed for my last decent sleep for a few nights. All packed and sorted here. You are having a finger wagged at you Mrs A - NO parties!!

LOVE you card and the tale does make me giggle - only you, as I've said before!

I think drop cutting as done by our lovely Mary Mac is what some folk refer to as 'gutting'. Am sure you do that - where you cut the middle out of card you're using for layers to make it go further?

Hugs, Di xx..........and BEHAVE!
