An embarrasing moment....

happened to me today.... just before lunch I had to use the bathroom and on zipping up my trousers... the zip caught in my pantihose and got stuck... so gave it a big tug..... and the puller came off in my hand!!!!  There I was with the back of my pants gaping open!!!!  ( it was a back zipper)  I didn't even have a long top on to pull down to hide it... so walked back into the office holding the back of my jumper down over the space.  Quickly put on my coat... which is a long winter coat, and told my boss I had to take an early lunch... and quickly took off to the shops.... I was wearing 3/4 pants and of course, this being mid winter.... not many shops had 3/4's in stock.  At the third shop I found a pair of black denim-y 3/4's that fitted so walked out of the changing room wearing them and asking the assistant to cut of the price tag.... turned out even better when she rang them up as they were on half price.... $22.49 - but of course when I took the broken pair in for a replacement zip - that's going to cost $23
Still I didn't have to sit around sweating in my coat all afternoon!!!!

Now onto some more male cards I made yesterday.... I really was on a roll... but using the Graphic 45 papers made it so easy 

These all used papers by Graphic 45, the last one the dotted paper is the reverse side of some Webster's Pages PP.  Couldn't resist putting some black gems on a couple as well...
and finally I made a tag for Karen's Tag Tuesday Challenge 

I made the tag out of glossy card stock and used HA Old French writing in Aged Mahogany distress ink.  Distressed the edge with Vintage Photo ink and used Shabby shutters and Aged Mahogany to stamp the Time Flies image from Stamp-It.  The challenge was "postal" so I used a stamp that came on one of my Chain challenge cards from the States.  I also added an image from the Graphic 45 papers as well as the pocket watch from the same pad.  I am thinking I will add the tag to a card - but not too sure yet.

Thanks for stopping by.  Wishing you all a great week... now June is almost finished and the shortest day past.... summer is on the way!!!!!  ( Well that's the general idea of course.  Still a bit of winter to go yet)
