Another friend card & a silly story!!!!

Evening all,
Hope you all have had a lovely day so far, 
We've been shopping for school stuff today. 
We got a £5 voucher for spending over £25 on school clothes,
 so I decided to nip back in and get Mac some new undies. 
I could only use this voucher on Kid's clothes if I spent another £25 excluding school wear, 
well as it came to £28 for I handed the voucher over and she kindly told me sorry, I couldn't use it on school wear, I told her it wasn't schoolwear, it was underwear and she said yes but she'd wear it for school!!!
I couldn't believe it, I thought she was joking, anyway after a bit of a discussion, she called for someone higher up, and thankfully she saw sense and let me use it. I mean how petty, 
I know it was only a fiver, But it's the principal of the matter!!!!
Anyway onto my 2nd creation of the day.
I had another order for a friend card, so here it is!
I have used:
Magnolia ~ Shopping Tilda (as requested)
Basic Grey ~ Kraft and Out of Print
Nellie ~ Doily Die
Doohickey  ~Antique Lace Border and Leaves
Marianne D ~ English Rose
DieNamics ~ Daisy Die
Whimsy Stamps ~ Sm Postage Stamps and Die
Scrim ~ From Homebase
Tim Holtz ~ DIs and Cardstock
My NEW photo corner punch ~ have been after this for ages, it was available as a die but had become discontinued, but thankfully has been made available as a die here
Thank you so much for looking,
Enjoy the rest of the weekend

LOL - she sounded a bit of a jobsworth, but at least you stood your ground and got what you wanted. Another gorgeous card too. Hugs, Claire x

What a ridiculous rule! I'm so glad they saw sense and let you use the voucher.
A gorgeous card. I love the colours and the flowers are wonderful.

This is such a gorgeous card, I just look the colours and your flowers. What a daft incident you had to endure just to get money off. What do they want you to put on your wee one?? Knickerbockers?? Lee xx

Mandy said...

Lol Fleur, some people are unreal, you should have promised to only let her wear the undies on weekends just for a laugh & see if jobsworth buckled lol.
Gorgeous card hun, love the distressing, the colours and that Tilda is so cute, why on earth I've still yet to ink her up is beyond me
hugs Mandy xx

Debbie said...

What are some people like, You would think some sales assistants were the owner of the shop!

This is my favorite Tilda, I have had her a while now and have used her a few times.
When my friend and I were off on one of our shopping spree's, I made her a card with this image on, she is gorgeous.
Love your papers and the new punched corner is adorable.
Thank you for your lovely comments, Debbiexx
