Silly Snowmen Midweek Reminder

What a week I've had!!! Not all good though...I've had serious internet I've got NONE!! I haven't quite mastered posting from my phone so have been waiting very impatiently to be up and running again. It's all over a new sports channel that is exclusive to BT...well that's not entirely true...I could have got it while with Talk Talk but hubby wanted NEEDED it in HD and that's where the trouble began...we can only get it from BT. Against my better judgement I swapped from TT to BT...they change was supposed to take effect from last Tuesday and sure enough TT cut me off, my shiny new hub arrived from BT and I tried to install in that night. In theory it should have taken 5 minutes but here I am a week later with no internet. I've talked to some lovely people in another country for what seems like hours...all very understanding and murmuring the right words to say as I rant on about how I getting behind in my work and I wanted to speak to someone higher up. By this point I'd spoken to someone at Level 1, Level 2 skipping up to Serious Customer Support but still not high enough to fix my problem. I was told an engineer could come out on WEDNESDAY and if they found a fault in my house I would have the privilege of paying £99 for them to fix it!!! I've got a friend quite high up in BT but I don't like to call on him until I'm really bitter and twisted. Well that bitter and twisted moment came yesterday lol. I made the call and fingers crossed I will be up and running tonight or tomorrow at the latest.

Enough of my's my card for the Silly Snowmen midweek reminder....

This was a super fun and quick card to make. I imported the image onto a document adjusting the size and placing it in the bottom right corner then using a text box, typed the sentiment and dragged it to where I wanted it. So easy! I ran the main card through my Ebosser with an embossing folder covering only 2/3 of the front. I coloured the image with my Copics adding glitter to the hat, scarf, skates and frozen pond then wonky stitched the edge before adhering it to the front of the card with foam pads.

I'll definitely be making some of these for my Christmas cards this year! Oh and don't forget if you leave a comment on the Challenge blog about the Silly Snowmen you could end up with the whole lot!!!

Now for my weekly Coen update. He is going to be 16 weeks tomorrow...that's SIXTEEN Peeps!!!!! The time is just flying in and he's mastered his Mr Bobblehead pose (first picture), eating a few spoonfuls of baby rice seated in his new highchair and giggling! He is an absolute joy :-D

Mr Bobblehead pose

Enjoying his fancy new chair pod thingy to help him sit up (whatever happened to cushions lol???)

Having a cuddle with Grandma (that's me!)

I've a few things to do before I pack up and head home so I'll love you and leave you. Once my internet is back on I'll be back commenting :-D

Thanks for stopping by

Hope you are back on line now and up and running at speed.

Love this card and that stamp is fabulous and fun.

As for the little chap, oh! my goodness I just want to squash him :) not too tight honest.

Marianne said...

Oh, little Coen is so adorable. Why do you need Internet if you can cuddle him instead?!
On a more serious note, I cannot stand it when I'm cut off from the Internet for an hour or so due to a power cut. I need the Internet to be able to work and generate an income, which is why I would be very hesitant to switch providers (esp. in Greece). The winter before last, we were cut off from all electricity for an entire working day because the electricity company needed to place some new poles, but they didn't notify anyone! Fortunately, I did not have any deadlines that Friday, but it was freezing cold and we depend on electricity for everything, including heating and cooking.
It's good to have friends in the right places. Hope your Internet will be up and running again soon!
