MDUC #35

So today I went into Devonport to see if I could find some paper doilies - I did find some, but they were massive and not what I was after. But what really *annoyed* me (venting now) the most was I had to go to Stork Talk - our local Baby shop which is a fantastic shop by the way - about my Pram - which is not even 12 months old. The wheel keeps on coming loose and is always loosing screws (have to take a screw driver with me every where now)- it almost fell off one day, anyway the distributor said that Stork Talk would have to send my wheel away to them to get fixed, when really what I need is a brand new wheel but because they don't import that type of pram anymore I don't get a replacement part! So I'm worried that it going to be a botch job on a dodgy wheel, and its going to happen again in a couple of months - then what?? but what am I to do? So I'm not going to have my Pram for the next few weeks..... lucky the baby shop does have Loaner Prams - but still soooooooooooo peeeved!!! How can a company sell prams that come with a warranty and not have spare parts?????? Its not even 12 months old! In fact it hasn't even been used for 6 months yet (well almost) So angry.

So here is my entry for Magnolia Down Under - and this week was an actual challenge. the Theme is Easter. Oh my!! what was I to do???? I've never made an Easter card before, but after a little bit of thinking this is what I come up with. Hope you cant see where I made the ink run - I'm still getting used to using these distress inks, but I tend to have the colour run on me all the time - darn it - I guess I'll just have to practice some more LOL.....
