I'm a tad late with my post today, had to dash down to my son's house to save the day, he's been locked out of his house so I set off this morning with my power tools and merrily started drilling out the lock so I could fit a new one. I hadn't been drilling more than a few minutes when a helpful man popped over and wouldn't go away till he had drill in hand and had drilled through the keyhole (the wrong place to drill) and broken three drill bits in the process, which then took me over an hour to pick out of the lock.
When I eventually did get rid of him I had to get in through a window so I could drill the lock on the inside (in the right place) pop the door off it's hinges and get the door open, so a job which should have taken an hour took nearly all day!
Is that a good enough excuse for being late, I wonder?
Anyway here is my offering for this weeks challenge at Try it on Tuesday
So do you believe in Fairies?
Here's a close up showing a little more detail! The ornate fence is a new stamp from Kanban which if I'd have looked at it properly I wouldn't have bought as there is only half the gate in the set! What's that all about? Half a gate is really no good to anyone and this is the only way to use the stamp without the other half! The horse and carriage is a Dimension Fourth stamp that I bought years ago and have only just inked up. Bit disappointed with that too as the carriage is lovely but let down by a less than realistic horse! I do love the tapestry stamps though which I've used for the flowers growing up the fence and of course the Lavinia fairies - well what can you say? Love Lavinia every time I use a stamp!
