MIM#135 Doing the shopping DT card

I'm on a roll!!!. Still not feeling well and came in to do my post for the start of another great Linky Party at Make It Monday this week and realised I haven't even put the card together. I had coloured the image. This is the third post in less than 24 hours all of which I have had problems. We went away Friday instead of Saturday to attend a wedding and had planned to stay the night at a friend's place not far from the wedding venue. They were going to be there Friday night but not Saturday so invited us to come down earlier and have tea with them as well. I was babysitting, hubby was working so had to tidy up the house as our youngest daughter came and house sat so she could look after our dogs. I had to make two wedding cards, one for me and one for my friend to give her daughter as she ran out of time to do it herself. I did some washing as we were running low on towels, packed my back and when hubby came home we had to take the grandchildren to our daughter's workplace so we could get going and be down there by tea time. It was rush, rush, rush. On Saturday I realised that I hadn't bought a small handbag to use so a visit to a local op shop provided one for $2. The wedding went well, although our oldest daughter was not well and thinks she got food poisoning. They left earlier and they had to stop several times on the way home. Not a pleasant trip.
I went to use my camera yesterday to take pictures of cards and found that it has been damaged and I now cant't take photos. I think my husband stood on it either when he was rushing to get dressed for the wedding or when he went to bed that night. Not Happy!!!! I don't have an i-phone so have taken pics on my phone and then posted on facebook, saved them back to the computer and then edited them from there.
What a shamozzle!!!!
Anyway, I've finally finished and would love you to have a look at the final product. If you have time please scroll down to the other two posts and maybe leave me a comment so I know someone has looked at them, LOL.
