Olive Green

hello...do so hope your having a gorgeous day with this sunshiny day......been on my rounds and it makes all the difference when the suns out...i get a lift...not often do i get jobs that make me titter ...but today i must tell you *the lost teeth*....went to visit one of my 90yr old and she was in tears she couldn't remember where she had put her teeth...they had been searching all morning bless her...so the search was on..well no cupboard or draw was left un searched ..every where i looked i had her tell me *Ive already looked * and it certainly looked like the tooth fairy had nicked them where could they be....well as she was distressed i offered to make a pot of good old tea....and low and behold found the missing teeth in the biscuit barrel......to my relief.....and to hers...so as we sat munching custard creams lol!!!!!(a new packet though) we did have a giggle....who'd have thought false teeth would be that funny....good job she has a sense of humour....and she blamed her hubby as he says she eats to many biscuits and he hide them..don't think so...but it certainly turned a shift into a more memorable one......to my card not made this for any challenge..i just made it because i wanted to use my new roses & ribbon......used Anna griffin paper..border Punch from friskars and olive green ribbon from wild orchard crafts...i spent a fortune on new roses and ribbons..don't tell hubby will you our little secret...lol!!!!i have given her a name of olive...and isn't she a cutie...i have thousands of images and found her whiles having a browse...hope you might like her...my matting and layering could have been neater though and wished i had used ivory lace...but i must have used it all......never mind the charity box is filling up nicely....of to the weekly dash round the supermarket...well a stroll in my case me knees are still bothering me ...but hobble i will...ttfn hugs..........having trouble loading ..hope this works now....tut! tut!!! mr blogger
