DCM LE Sketch & Arty Girlz - Circles, Spots, Dots

No, I'm not being lazy only making one card for two challenges. Both time & patience are in VERY short supply today. I had the embarrassment of having my Barclaycard declined twice at the till despite having in excess of £3,000 credit! I needed footwear, I have only foam sandals to wear & it is getting damn cold. I had to come home & call Barclaycard who assure me nothing is wrong with my card, in fact they say I was never declined & never tried to purchase anything with my card today. Well hallucinating was I? I may be a pixie but there were no magic mushrooms in my lunch today!! Am I not the one without warm footwear this evening.
I've demanded a new card & now have to wait up to 10 days. The shop is holding my boots & trainers for me, which is very good of them. Wyndsors World of Shoes are an excellent store & not in the habit of telling me my card is declined for fun. I even have the receipt. Very reassuring to know the bank say I haven't used it.
A year ago today, I was drinking very expensive champagne, poncing around a gorgeous castle as wedding photographer for my sister. Far cry from today. Im off to drink my horlicks & moan because I WANT MY BOOTS!!!
Oh, yeah, the card! I got sick of trying to get a photo that shows the silver lines as a frame around the edges. The circles are all inked, stamps were free with PI. Right Im off now!!! You know what, I'd laugh if my feet weren't so cold!

Great card Paula, I love the way the circles are different colours and the little images look great. What a pain your card been declined, hope you can get your shoes asap, it's getting really cold at the moment

Oh, poor you Paula! Sending some warmth your way....I love your card, it's so colourful. I got those stamps too but thought I would never use them - now I'm not so sure.

I know exactly how you feel,Paula, as it happened to me 2 weeks ago also buying shoes. The machine refused to acknowledge my card - and I felt SO embarrassed! It worked in Boots though (ha ha)!!
Anyway, back to the plot - your card is lovely, and the silver does show up.

Hi, Paula dear. Sorry to hear you had such a lousy day. It's been cold here too, which is crazy, for a tropical country. Been raining like crazy and today I feel sick. Hope the world sorts itself out soon. *hugs*
