Taxi.....

... you know that fabby Old Jalopy stamp from the Duke of Distress that he has now had made into an Alterations die? Well, I have had my beady eyes on it ever since I first saw it... and I have to say... it is faaaaab!! Tis Friday today which means that it is my Bubbly Funk DT day... I altered a canvas, used the Old Jalopy and got very painty and messy... all the deets on how I made the canvas are HERE. I wanted to make the Jalopy into a Taxi so I used an Idea-ology Plaquette on the door and a little orange bulb that was taken from an old Xmas decoration... cute!




So... tis Friday... yep, Friday... which means... this time next week William & Catherine will be wed and.. erm... oh, yes, something else is happening isn't it!!! Ah, yes... I will be AT RANGER!!!! Actually, factoring in the time difference (oh my poor old brain is going to struggle with that lol) it will actually be 7am, which means I will hopefully be sitting watching the wedding on the TV in my hotel room (ermm... hoping hotel room has TV!!) and getting the biggest butterflies ever about my day ahead... I mean, the butterflies I have now are large and we still have a week to wait... I think I could quite easily cancel my flight and flap across the pond on the back of my butterflies!!!




Anyways... I managed to go clothes shopping yesterday... eeeek, I hate shopping at the best of times (unless it is for stash, obviously) so trying to clothes shop when the place if full of kids running around and making noises that only a mother could love... well, suffice to say, I got a few new things and came home with a free headache lol They should have a holding area in department stores for children... they could be put into a play area that is sound proofed and then miserable old bags like me wouldn't get all vexed and uppity because there wouldn't be any annoying brats skidding around in the aisles and dragging racks of clothes down on top of themselves... Oh, I sound like a grumpy old woman (maybe I am!!! EEeek!!)




Anyways... time for me to get moving and stuck into the ever growing list of things to do before I go away in... a weeks' time!!! Right... enough of me waffling... have a good Friday (did you see what I did there!!!) Thanks for looking... TTFN

voodoo vixen said...

I love that taxi, it is fabbydoozy!! Now I will looking out for that one the next time I am scrap shopping... you have a lot to answer for!! ;)
I'm with you on the crabby ole lady front... for some weird reason the kids screaming in shopping trolleys seem to follow me about in the supermarket... and even my 'you are dead meat if you don't shut up you little brat' look doesn't seem to work!! (well, it sometimes works on the poor stressed out Mother who is pushing said screaming brat and she does an about turn and heads up a different aisle)!! ;)

Gillian said...

Love Jalopy's new role in life, the plaquette and orange fuse light are just ever so cool finishing touches. Is this said taxi taking you to the airport in 6 days time:).... squeal and breathe lol, Happy Easter Hun xx

Wendy said...

Happy Easter weekend honey x

KAT said...

Don't worry Hels - all hotels in America have TV's in the room so you are safe - besides I'd rather go to Ranger U than be at the wedding of the century - because Tim will be there of course!!! A week - I hope you can sleep at night! Safe travels!

Joanne said...

When you go to Ranger you won't need your imagination as everything will be supplied, so can I have it please so I can create amazing art like you.
Hugs Joanne xx
