Silver Fairy and a rant

OMW what’s with people and shopping – it’s still 2 months to Christmas and people are already grumpy and crowding the shops!  I had to go through to Ikea yesterday afternoon and wish I hadn’t bothered.  People are so RUDE, and “lady” (I use this term VERY loosely!) with big time shopping trolley rage in Ikea, if you read this you should be ashamed.   There was a young mum with a buggy trying to get through self closing doors and before I could get there to hold the door open to help her this miserable woman barged through with her trolley, almost knocked the young mum and her buggy over and never even looked back to see if she was okay!  I hope her flipping trolley wheels fell off miles from anywhere and she had to go fetch another, then I hope when she got back to her car all 4 tyres were flat grrrrr!!!! Now I know why I absolutely loathe shopping in any form, and if I can’t order it on line from now on I am going to do without! Angry smile

Rant over aaaaah that feels better lol, so now on to today’s card which is another of those uber yummilicious Wee Stamps from Whimsy Stamps that I did for their magazine issue 4.  Now isn’t she just stunning!  The detail, right down to those little bells is just amazing.  She is called Silver Fairy and you can grab her from Dies to Die For

The paper is Memory Box Gossamer, not sure if it is still available anywhere though as I got mine last year.  I threaded some sparkly tulle through a ribbon slider buckle from Wild Orchid Crafts.  And natch all the flowers are from WOC too: 25mm wild roses, 15mm roses, cherry blossoms, 20mm rose.  The leaves have been punched with a Martha Stewart Frond Branch punch.

The sentiment is from a Whimsy Stamps set.  I added lashings of Glamour Dust to her wings and it’s really picked up the sparkle in the tulle.  I popped a Tim Holtz clock die cut behind the image.

Enjoy your Sunday

  3. Oh Bev, this is so beautiful. I love the blue so much! You made your angel so beautiful. ugghh, know what you mean about people being so rude. Christmas is supposed to be joyous, but some folks are just mean and miserable. I worked at Walmart through Christmas a few times and little old ladies were ready to whip anyone who gets in their way. I would be ashamed to act that way! I like you don't like to shop at Christmas, it seems to make people downright mean! I guess look at them and say "Have a nice day" and Smile and kill them with kindness...easier said than done!

  4. I know exactly how you felt, and I´m the same. I just simply hate to go shopping. I just don´t know, what is happening to people, when they go out to shop, it´s almost like they leave their brain at home on the kitchencounter, when they leave home LOL. I worked in a huge supermarket for many years, and I honestly think, I have met them all during my time there, and it´s relaly sooo many people, who gets completely crazy, as soon as they walk into a store, and I never understood, why people, who´s normally pretty nice persons suddenly turns too be really nasty and mean individuals, but they sure do. Today I rather don´t go shopping, and most times only go once a month to shop all my nesecary groceries all at once, and it´s a huge relief everytime I´m on my way home and can say thanks god, now there´s another month, before I need to do this again LOL.
    Well when this is said, you have made the most awesome card hun and I soo love it, but it´s also blue he he he. Stunning work as always hun.

  11. HAHA, I always picture you as a very sweet, super creative, dog loving lady but now I've seen another Bev!!! You are sooo right and I don't like shopping in whatever form either. But being from Holland I must say that in general the people in the UK are much more polite and friendly ...so if you want to be realy upset...come here!!
    Your card is gorgeous as always!

    Have a happy Sunday, Irene

  13. Ohh Bev,
    Your card is gorgeous as ever!
    I think people have become more selfish lately and they really don't bother about others! I think the solution is to be creative ;-) : I never see this selfishness with creative people!!!
    Have a nice day and stay creative!

  30. Bev - you rant away. I walk with a stick and the number of times people have nearly knocked me over in their haste to get somewhere is just unbelievable. I won't go near a supermarket and do all that online, and virtually anything else I can.

    Fabulous card - just love it. I bought this recently but she is not inked up yet.

  31. You rant away Bev - I'm so with you on this. Folk have become so self-centered when out shopping and it makes me so cross. There are places I never go to now unless I plan well in advance to try and avoid the crowds.

    This card is stunning - the image looks amazing and how could I not love it when you have used some of my favourite colours.

  39. Hi Bev,

    I visit you every week and just drool over your amazing artwork (they are not just cards!) but just had to comment today!

    I did giggle at your rant! I could almost feel your tension and know all too well how frustrating shopping is. As someone who (on a good day) just has a stick to help I am seemingly painted with invisible paint when I go shopping! I wont bore you with how awful people are when Im in a scooter!! lol!

    Beautiful card and I totally love the turquoise shades youve used here! Its just stunning!

    I wish I could do all my Christmas shopping online too but my boys need clothes and they need to try them on. I don't enjoy shopping with all the angry shoppers either. i thought that the holidays were supposed to be a HAPPY time of year... what's up with all the grumpiness? At least your beautiful card made me forget all about it. ;)

  54. Oh dear Bev, has the Christmas shopping rage begun already!!! I loathe it when it gets like that and it makes me real mad also!!! I do 99% of my shopping online now mainly because of arthritis/spine pain, BUT also because I just hate shopping cos people can be SO rude and ignorant, and they never have what you want in stock!
    Wowzer this card is gorgeous Bev! I love the paper and that shade of aqua/turquoise with the brown! Gorgeous image and embellishments and love her glittery wings. Beautiful card!
    Hope you have a good Sunday!

  59. Some people can be so rude; I have 3 kids under the age of 5 and getting through a door can be a challenge sometimes. There is always the nice people that hold the door so that I can get through with the kids and pushing the stroller and then the people that can't wait for me to get out the way. Anywho glad I have over half of my Christmas shopping done; Yay for me:0)
    Gorgeous card Bev; love that image with her oh so sparkly wings! And that buckle is just perfect touch with the tulle. Awesome colors too!

    Hugs;

  63. I hate shopping for the same reason...hysterical post though...thanks for the laugh. It's nice to know that I am not the only one who gets aggravated at other peoples' ignorance and lack of compassion. I stopped by when I heard at a friend's blog that someone had 4000 followers. THAT IS AMAZING!!! Congratulations on such an awesome achievement. Your card is fantastic and I love what you have done with Silver Fairy. Whimsy is a favorite site of mine. I am surprised I am just now finding your blog. Better late than never!

  64. Bev, I'm with you on the shopping thing too. If I can't find it online I really don't need it, although I had to buy some food but the people are crazy and it isn't even a full moon yet. I love this card! I was really hoping you would tell us what colors you used on this beautiful lil' girl. I think she came out perfect! Please tell me what you used. Thanks, Mimi

  65. I am so totally with you on the shopping. I've never liked it and the crowds and rude people just make it worse.

  80. Hi Bev,
    Rant away, if I was there the rude 'lady' would have known she was very uncivilized and impolite!!
    I think that people are more rude nowadays than 20 to 30 years ago. I don't know what happened in those years .... Hurray for the internet!!! Shopping online has become my favorite activity.

    Your card is gorgeous as always, love the sparkly tulle, looks really great!!

  82. It is unfortunate that so many people are forgetting basic manners (or perhaps never learned them). How nice that you were trying to help the young mother despite the crowds. Just keep on being you and don't let these rude people destroy your day.
    Love the card!
