Over the Hill and Always Be Careful Where You Send Your Text Messages

Good afternoon everyone.

It's wet and windy, ideal crafting weather I think!

Well I have a card to share with you, but first of all I will tell you the stupid thing I have just done with a text message.

A text was sent from my son's School to say there were some positions available for dinner ladies/midday playground supervisors.  I put myself forward as I am looking for work.  Next minute I see another mum dashing over to the School called Jacky.  I then proceed to send a text to my fella saying "Just seen Jacky dashing over to the School.  Bet she's going after the positions".  Only thing is, this didn't go to my fella, it went right to the School!!!!  I think I must of got over excited that there were jobs going , but seriously, trust me to do something like that!  Do you think I'll get a look in now?

Anyhow here is my card lol......

I love Gus.  He makes great cards for men.  He is of course from Bugaboo and the papers are My Minds Eye, Asparagus, 6x6 Papers.  The embellishments are from The Works.  Oh and he is coloured in with ProMarkers.
