A wee bit "Sassy" xxx

Afternoon all
I found some time in my oh so busy day(hee she says) to post my wee card I made on Tuesday or was it Wednesday??? hmm the days are merging together I think!

The gorjuss Debs sent me this wee image, thanks so so much petal! I just couldn't wait to colour her up! Simply Sassy

Ingredients:
Image -
Hippie Chick
Coloured with my yummy promarkers
Papers - Freebies from craft mag
Glitter
Everything else from stash
I so love this image and may be my fav hee! I want to enter it into the following challenges

Simply Sassy - GDT call
Let's Ink it up - Anything Goes
So things around here have been not so good, hope your ready for my gibbering??

Ok, Hubby has been working quite far away this week and on Wednesday night he broke down!! Yes our wee rather new(only 2), brokedown in the middle of "NO MANS LAND"! It had only had its service over a week before! So RAC man came out, said there was air in the fuel line! So he syphoned the air out! Try the engine and woop woop it started!

RAC man said he would follow behind hubby to make sure all alright! Everything going fine, then 10mins down the road it just conked out! RAC man tried again but nope, didnt work! They had to be towed as wascausing havoic and so a Recovery truck could bring it to garage! Lucky garage right across from us so hubby wouldn't be stranded! Hubby phoned to say the pick up had arrived and they were just leaving, that was at 4pm!

I was waiting, watching for the poor van and hubby to come home, even Tillie was glum wanting her daddy no doubt! But at 6 on the dot the poor little van drove past the window into the garage! It was so so sad to see, our wee van that gets us everywhere hee! Garage stayed open for him and the van went straight into workshop for 1st thing in the morning!

Poor hubby had a few jobs to do and prce yesterday but with no wee van, he wasnt getting anything done! The garage said they had no courtesy cars, which was no good to us! So at 3pm hubby went over, they still had no idea what was wrong and the poor wee van was linked up to so many computers you would have thought it was in intensive care! The nice Service manger decided to give us his own work car so hubby could at least do some pricing and have a vechile for any emergency call outs!
At 5 the garage phoned and told us they thought it was the "brains" of the fuel management system was in melt down so order another! Hoping it would come today so hubby could get the van back on the road!

So as of almost 3.30pm we're still waiting! The part arrived about an hour ago so fingers crossed! If not it wont be till monday now and they will need to gets us a car of some kind as dont think the Service manger would give us his car all weekend!!

Told you it was long, ok and maybe alot more gibbery than normal but you know me hee! Here's the poor wee van as arrived on the Recovery truck, looks so sad!!




Something even funny in all this, I had a dream last nigh that the van was in Franksteins dungen being worked on an the van even had the bolts coming out hee!

Well of to play while hubby stares out window looking for his wee van!

I see what you meant the other day about using the same DP lol! Love how you've coloured her. Everything goes so well together.

Your poor van, hope she's better soon. Shows how much you rely on wheels doesn't it?

Sorry to hear about hubby's van being sick ... get well soon! (... and hopefully without costing a fortune too!)

Oh Melly what a shame. I remember that happening to me also once and we both worked and only had one car. I am sure everything will work out, but then again no vehicle means no income.
