Waiting Around!

Don't you just hate waiting around for stuff! I know I do ... my car is at the car doctors this morning ... has been since 8am and I kind of know that the longer it takes for them to ring me ... the more sick my car is ... and the more expensive the bill is going to be!
Yikes ... I simply hate paying out vast sums on non craft purchases!
Another tag today ... to be more precise ... another demo tag ... I promise I have been making stuff this week ... none of it is quite finished yet ... so I am not ready to share! So muchos apologies if you are getting bored with the whole tag fest!
I love how the letters from Lord Tim of Holtz's Adage tickets are the perfect size for the Charm clips. You know Tim ... the man that can design a wedding dress for Kate Middleton in five minutes flat while outfitting the entire guest list for the royal wedding including the Queen with just an Edge Distresser and a classic adornment!
The tag is coloured using only Broken China Distress Stains and some Lettuce Colour Wah and all the stamps are indeed The Wendy Vecchi Studio 490.
I am getting a bit concerned now ... apparently rehearsals for the big day are going ahead and I still have n't seen ... or been fitted for my bridesmaid dress ... what with Wills and Kate spending the next week out of the public eye ... well to be frank ... they are nigh on impossible to get hold of! And if I ring Charles ... well ... I will be on the phone for forever and I really can't spare the time! I guess I am just going to have to turn up on the day and hope I have n't added one too many frills to my cerise pink silk number ... and that the off one shoulder look was indeed the right choice!
Right ... I must away ... I have more waiting to do ... I may as well make the most of the time and make something!

Oh I hope you have better luck with your car than me. Basically mine was in intensive care and I do thank my dh for paying the drs cept it was having relapses!! Don't think my dr was a consultant!! So a FEW £1,000.00s later she's on the mend!
Speaking of lord tim, wonder where he's goin to put those tassel embellies, in fact I wonder who will get them? Did you put a couple on your frock sweet pea?? Might come in handy for the evening do. You stayin for that part?? Lol
Must go, nature calling and btw tags are lush ( had better mention the gorge arty craftiness)
Good afternoon ( I'm curtsying at this point in you honour Lady E)

You daft duck... you do make me laugh!!! I am lovin the tags and how you did the charm clips... bet that car will be fine when they have finished its refurb for use on the big day - didn't you know it was all a conspiracy to get your car for use to the Abbey!!!

Sorry to read about the car Linda, and as I'm behind with visits (again) I've already read the next post ....Ouch! Thanks goodness for your Knight in Shining Armour.

I love all your tags and don't care how many you post. Those charm clips are great.
