MIA

congrats to both of you. Email me with your address and I will get them in the mail to you

My card for today was made with an Inky Antics stamps and sentiment (got to love that sentiment! I have a few friends that this will be perfect for......). Although it doesn't show up in the photo, the bottle and glass have been coated with glossy accents, and were coloured with ProMarkers

Well, I have only been here a week, and already I have had three interesting encounters! I debated about telling you about this one, but thought 'what the heck, we are all adults'
So I was in the dollar store, and in came a fortyish woman with a bloke trailing behind her. She rampaged up and down the aisles, looking for stuff that would enhance her ermmm personal life and add something to her bedroom frolics. She gave a running commentary the whole time, in a loud voice. Now I can tell you that there is not a lot that this woman didn't know about frolicing!
The words brazilian wax and edible cream came up a lot. I, of course, was fascinated, especially when the hapless boyfriend tried to shut her up, and it became clear that she had forgotten his name :)
In the end, the manager was called, and she was chucked out of the store. Chucked out of a dollar store for unseemly behaviour! Must be a first.

The tale of the little white dog must wait until tomorrow, see you then

Oh my! You do run into some different characters don't you?!?! I can't imagine being so low as to get chucked from the Dollar Store. They do have the coolest stuff there don't they, well besides odd people that is, but of course not all of the people there are odd. After all there at least are you and me.

Rufus said...

You do have the most interesting "encounters"! She's probably one of those who say...I like the dollar store, you don't have to get dressed up like you do if you go to Wal-Mart!
LOL

Hee! Hee! That sounds like a normal trip to the dollar store around here. Well... there is a lot more scratching involved... We stay away from that place now. Hee! Hee! I work in retail and this was a very interesting weekend of thieves. At one time, our security guy had to call the police for backup. There were 8 different areas in the store getting hit at the same time. Three of those arrested were carrying drugs. I guess some will never learn. Back to our wonderful crafting world, your card is beautiful! I love the colors and the different textures are just wonderful! TFS!

thank you so much En, for picking my name, I'm looking forward to looking at all the goodies. Keep your stories coming because I think we all enjoy them so much.

Carol said...

First, CONGRATS to the winners!

Second, love the card ... makes me a bit thirsty for the "good stuff". Too bad it's only 7:00 a.m.! *wink*

Third, thanx again for the chuckles Enfys. Admittedly, our local dollar store often attracts individuals of "questionable" character ... however, none that are so poorly behaved that they are actually requested to vacate the premises.

I love how you always see the humorous side of things ... HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Hugz,
Carol

Lynda said...

Love Lynda xxx

Jessica said...

Can't wait to hear about the little white dog.
Hugs.

Loved your story about your strange encounter at the dollar store. Had a good chuckle just picturing this at the dollar store of all places. It obviously wasn't funny to one of the customers who must of complained so that the manager had to actually usher this crazy lady out of the store. I have only been to the dollar stores a handful of times, but to my recollection, I am sure none of ours carries items that this lady was looking for. Have a good day. I am sure to giggle to my self everytime I think about this today. TFS. Cute card by the way.

Cute card! Thanks for sharing with us. Congratulations to the ladies who won!

There are some very strange folks who pop out of the rabbit hole every once and again! I hope the little dog was not theirs!

Blessings, Donna

DeeAnn said...

I love the new card. Congrats to the winners. I am going to laugh all day about that lady. How did she expect to find those kind of things at the Dollar Tree? Brazilian Wax? Clearly a nutter, ROFL! Thanks for the funny story. Hugs, DeeAnn (lylacfey Cricut MB)
