A Funny Old Weekend but here's something Gorjuss:)

Evening lovely bloggers:) How's your weekend been, or your bank holiday weekend for some? It's been a funny one here! Everything was going well till Ian (hubby) rang yesterday afternoon and said he'd had "a little accident", then the details came.... that he's wrote the car off, he'd spun it and landed upside down. Well, I was in a right kerfuffle! Got to him and he was in the ambulance, police were there, firemen were on their way...the whole lot! He'd managed to get out without so much as a scratch! Thank goodness! He was soooo lucky! There weren't any other cars involved so all that was ok, so we've just got our insurance to sort out now which is going to leave us a bit broke me thinks as we have a huge excess on the insurance:( Oh well am sure it'll sort out one way or the other.

But, onto happier things:) Here'a gorjuss christmassy card! This gorjuss girlie is available fromFunkykits and is perfect for christmas makes me thinks:) All the paper I've used is from my delicious new MME Laundry Line 12 x 12 pad that I got from Elaine at Quixotic at a bargain price as they're on special offer right now for a few more days so get em quick!

Stuff: Sugarnellie Gorjuss Girl 'Little Star' available here and coloured with copics, Papers MME Laundry Line available here, Embellishments (gold cord, charms, lace) available here, raffia from stash, su ribbon, su sentiment, sewing machine, crop a dile for hole punch on tag and core'dinations cardstock.

The layout of this card is from Friday Sketchers, which I've rotated and am also entering it for the ABC challenge as their theme this week is C for circles, and Pile it On's challenge for this week is 'round' so I reckon my card fits in with that too-well at least the paper and sentiment does:) Thanks for popping by and any comments you might leave me, they really make my day, truly!

    I can't believe your husband's luck. Wow, how scary! Someone must be looking out for him :)

  4. Gosh glad Ian is OK! Scary for you both and very very lucky indeed to not have a scratch. Whatever car you had get another one the same!

    I had my first ever accident the other day too, biker fell off on other side of road and slid right into my path. Fortunately for him I drive like a pensioner with the kids in the car so by the time I hit the anchors he only got tapped at about 5mph!

    Love the colours on your card, the greens are gorgeous! I just ordered from Elaine but missed that stack hey ho! Gone for the wild asparagus one instead :)

    Also love the ribbon detail and the charm, fab as always!
