MMTPT78 Let your 'hair down!'

It's Mothermark's TeaParty time again and it is a case of 'never a dull moment! ' It seems that this week Rapunzel has just about had it with all the attention her hair gets. She's asked us to bring some attention to her new salon as her marketing efforts have failed. Well, we know what makes a hair salon successful! Gossip and plenty of it! All we have to do is show up for Rapunzle's offering of tea, goodies, free haircuts or color and partake in a little idle gossip to get that Salon happening - so I am doing my best to help out and am having the 'full treatment' at the Salon - and that in itself is enough to start the odd rumour or two! 

I have used this adorable image from my Twisted Sister Pat Smethers, not that this gal (or Pat) needs any kind of improvement - with all that I have read on different cards in the gallery, I am sure I will need to be  relaxed and fully alert for this Tea Party...but...pssst.....I did hear a little rumour while I was 'chilling out' apparently there is one among us who also goes by the name of 'Chapstick', I happened to unexpectedly get my hands on one of the 'said' chapsticks in one of the generous RAK's this gal sends out to so many stampers - seems she forgot herself and it dropped into the envelope addressed to me  - not a problem until I got to Customs and the 'sniffer dogs' detected something illegal.....none other than Botox - shock horror!

 Could it be that this damsel has 'spiked' her lipstick in an effort to fool us all and keep those ruby red lips of hers 'kissable' in the endless persuit of her beau, OR is young Rapunzel is selling the stuff in an attempt to have more than 'hair' happening....needless to say, the damsels are flocking at the door to get the stuff - gotta keep those lips gorgeous and oh so kissable!!  You never know when your Prince Charmng will come along - oh, wrong fairy tale...rats!!  But you know how is goes - 'think Steel Magnolia's' Cindy told us - dar-r-r-ling - Julia Roberts has nothing on this lot here!!  Take a number Julia!!!

I am linking this card to Crazy4Challenges - pink colour scheme
The Die Cuts R Us Challenge - ribbon  - runs underneath the image and is threaded through the button on the flower.
Creative Inspirations Challenge - feminine
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge be inspired by the letter P... pink, pearls, purple, punches, and piercing...

Now, if I could just have some peace and quiet so I can finish off this massage....see you when I am through - thanks for coming and for the fabulous gossip - opps I mean comments, you leave me - I appreciate it!! 


What a lovely surpise to find this Award from one of my my dear blogging friends,  Lori

Thank you Lori for honouring me with this award, you are always so sweet, I love your visits to my blog and appreciate your encouraging comments.  you are one of the peope that make blogging a great place to be.  Now, I need to list 10 things that bring me pleasure and send this on to 10 friends. Here we go....

1. My faith and relationship with God

2. My wonderful family, I am blessed to have such a supportive husband who truly is my best friend - my life would be sad without him in it - he completes me!!  My kids are great kids, like all kids, they have their moments, but their hearts are wonderful!

3. Our animals - and we have so many - 2 dogs, 9 chickens (all with names) 12  budgies, 3 cockatiels (one is my tame one who often cardmakes with me) and a fish.

4. Cardmaking of course, complete with BLOGGING!

5. My friends whether here with me or online - I love you all, you make my life richer!!

6. Clean sheets that have been dried in the sunshine, sliding into them after a shower - sheer pleasure - this is richness at it's fullest.

7. Being with my Siblings and New Zealand family, what a great feeling, I am blessed to come from a family that is close and we are many!!  I love them all and miss them like CRAZY!

8. Coffee

9. A good thunder storm - we don't get too many here, so when they come, we love them!  Nothing like frangrance after the rain.

10.  Getting mail - I love the sound of the postman stopping to bring me mail from friends - it brings me such pleasure - but don't like the WINDOW ones - very YUCKY!!

I have looked around for 10 people who inspire me and just can't pick 10...each one of you inspire me in some way, so I am asking you to please take this Award from me, this is not the easy way out, but every one of you I visit inspire me in one way or another...and then there are the new blogs I will visit today...so please enjoy it and know it comes from my heart!
