Popcorn Love and My Angry Moment

Hi I thought I would share this clean and simple quick card I made,I have used a decoupage design from Popcorn the bear Romance cd rom,I then stamped the word love twice and coloured them with promarkers and stamped little hearts onto some of them before glazing them with glossy accents,I finished with a little ribbon and some gems for the corners I hope its ok.

Right now for my moment lol this is not craft related but it has been bugging me and my other half for a few days now,we have these new neighbours opposite us in the flats where we live its only a small block so everyone knows everyone really anyway Rob did a good deed and took their old washing machine down the stairs out to the bins for them as she said her hubby was unable to do it,in return she bought our dog some treats which we were very thankful for next day she brings our dog a bone from her roast and we politely said thankyou but we are unable to give it to him as we dont allow him to eat bones as they can be harmful then the following day her husband knocked the door saying he has a new ipad thingy and was looking to buy a router and could he look at ours Rob frowned as not sure why and then his wife came out convincing him to let them have a look,well once inside they walked right up to my lappy and where the router was and started jotting down the numbers underneath and stuff omg the cheek of it they said they wanted to type it into theirs so they could try out the internet omg as you can imagine the fury in us right now it just goes to show that they were trying to piggy back our internet how cheeky is that obviously they didn't succeed but we would see his wife everyday and she would stop and talk to the dog and we haven't really seen them since they are keeping a low profile.
well thats enough of me waffling on but does it sound like we have over reacted or do you think we should be concerned?

The Stampman's Annual Awards

Hello again I know 2 posts in one day I must be coming down with something haha,well over at The Stampmans blog they are having their 3rd Annual Awards and would like to see your best project of the past year so I thought I would give it a try.There will be a first prize and 4 runner ups if anyone would like to join in too.
I have decided to go with this card below as I was really happy with the way it turned out as it was my first Steampunk style card and I used lots of distress inking and heat embossing on this one and it was heaps of fun to make and the response from your comments were fabulous too so thats the reason for my choice.

Have a wonderful evening everyone
