Two tags and a joke....

Hi everybody, hope you are all well and happy! Had another disturbed night here; first there were storms, with thunder and non-stop lightning, one flash after the other. Very impressive, but sometimes I need to sleep. Then at 2.30, just after I had finally drifted off, the telephone rang. I had a drunk at the other end, pleading with me to come down and let him in! *Shweeeetie, lemme in, I won't got drinking again!* I can well imagine why his sweetie didn't want to open the door to him, and told him to ring the right number. About a quarter of an hour later, he rang again, and begged to be let in....Being hard hearted, I told him where to get off to, and switched the phone off completely. I don't know whether he got let in somewhere, but I don't really care!
Yesterday I was out at my friend Inge's; we had our usual ladies day with eating, coffee drinking, gossiping and card playing, so it was an enjoyable time.
In the evening I managed 2 tags, one for Rebecca's *Blog Challenge Garden*, with *A* for adore, and the other one just because.... For the adore tag I made a double tag again, as I find the image looks lost on the larger tags I like, and a vintage scrap rose to match the silk rose. For the second tag I have used images from CI, and of course, my leopard....

And here is the joke, from Narda:

My job search

1. My first job was working in an Orange Juice factory,
but I got canned. Couldn't concentrate.

2. Then I worked in the woods as a Lumberjack,
but just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.

3. After that, I tried being a Tailor,
but wasn't suited for it -- mainly because it was a sew-sew job.

4. Next, I tried working in a Muffler Factory,
but that was too exhausting.

5. Then, tried being a Chef - figured it would add a little spice to my life,
but just didn't have the thyme.

6. Next, I attempted being a Deli Worker,
but any way I sliced it.... couldn't cut the mustard.

7. My best job was a Musician,

but eventually found I wasn't noteworthy.

8. I studied a long time to become a Doctor,
but didn't have any patience.

9. Next, was a job in a Shoe Factory.
Tried hard but just didn't fit in.

10. I became a Professional Fisherman,
but discovered I couldn't live on my net income.

11. Managed to get a good job working for a Pool Maintenance Company,
but the work was just too draining.

12. So then I got a job in a Workout Center,
but they said I wasn't fit for the job..

13. After many years of trying to find steady work,
I finally got a job as a Historian - until I realized there was no future in it.

14. My last job was working in Starbucks,
but had to quit because it was the same old grind.



Okay, that was it for today. Have a great day and take care! Thanks for visiting!

  25. Valerie, I "adore" your tags -- always top notch.

    Hope you sleep better tonight. When will the good weather ever arrive in your area? Summer had better hurry up because winter is on the doorstep.


  26. Moin Valerie. Zwei wunderschöne Tags hast du gestaltet. Besonders gut gefällt mir der Einsatz der Tortenspitze.
    Zu deiner Frage mit dem Babyöl: Ich habe den Hintergrund mit Wachskreide (in diesem Fall Bienenwachsstifte, es gehen aber auch alle andere Ölpastellkreiden) angemalt und anschließend mit Babyöl verrieben. Dieses Mal nur Blautöne, geht aber auch wunderbar mit verschiedenen Farben für Farbverläufe. Falls noch etwas unklar ist... frag einfach :)

  27. Ha! And I LOVE your drunk gentleman caller ;) What a great story - too bad he probably won't remember any of it. Beautiful tags - such gorgeous details and colors - you are such an inspiration, xo

  28. Love the tags and love the job search...Retirement is the PERFECT job!

  29. teeheehee, cute joke! I want that retirement job!!!
    Darling tags hun.
    bummer about the late night phone call. next time use a loud whistle in the receiver, he won't call back!!!
    hugs Lynn
