Using Bits Of Paper!

Hi all you wonderful peeps! I hope everyone is okay and not suffering with any of those horrible nasty bugs that are going around...the snow didn't last long here but it's still bitterly cold and I don't think the heating has been off at all.
I'm looking forward to tomorrow I am meeting a very dear friend that I went to grammar school with we met on our first day there..she was my chief bridesmaid and I was hers ..and she was my maid of honour when I got married to Paul and we had children within month's of each other...but we lost touch her husband's job moved them around a lot..but she contacted my brother on face book and asked him if he knew me!!! so a two hour phone call later LOL and we are going out for lunch and I really can't wait I'm so excited!!!
Ohhh and last Tuesday I went to get the old barnet done the grey's needed covering and it wanted a tidy up...so I said to my hairdresser could I have a few copper highlights in just to brighten it up...well not sure if she heard me well I'm pretty SURE she didn't because she put my blonde highlights in and then flooded it with the copper...well didn't see it till it had been washed and didn't have my glasses on but through my squinting I knew it just wasn't the same LOL  So I'm sat saying ermmmm is my hair not my usual colour??? she said you wanted copper didn't you??? with your blonde highlights as well??? I said NOOOOOOOO I wanted some copper highlights!!!  Anyway after the initial shock and she began to dry it and Paul was sat saying Oh wow Sue I love that colour it really suits you and it's the best colour I have ever seen on you..(me thinking he's taking pity on me!) So he sends a pic to my daughter and she loves it as well...oh and I had a fringe put in haven't had one of those since I was about 7 years old and it loosely curled it began to look ok on me hahahaha but I still have reservations. I sent Mrs P a pic and she said it's gawjussss and it makes me look younger..so for now I'm staying with it. I just get a shock when I walk passed a mirror!!!!
Okay sorry for rabbiting on! my card is an LOTV image that I coloured (need more practise) and bits of paper out of my box I've promised myself I'm going to use up.
Take care everyone and lots of hugglesssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Cute card Sue, sweet image and a lovely design.
Would love to see the new hairdo! Sounds lovely...it is a bit of a shock when you change the colour or style...but both at once takes a bit of getting used to!!!
Have a great time catching up with your friend!

Super image and really lovely colouring, great design.
I have come to the concluesion that Hairdressers are a breed of their own and most are partially or totally deaf.
Turn out well for you though on this occasion.

Great card Sue and I am sure the hair looks just a super, takes a while to get used to something different....I had a brown strip put through the fringe on my blonde hair, took ages to like it, well sort of like it.xx [aNNie]

Hi Sue, what a super card, I love the nice bright Spring colours.
I have a school friend I still keep in touch with, she lives outside Beffast, Northern Ireland, I live in Perthshire, Scotland.
We were sat next to each other first days at a new school, immediate friends then and still friends after 50+ years.
I am sure you hair is brilliant it will just take time to get used to it.
Have a great weekend,

Hi Sue
Smashing card. Your composition is always spot on.
John Lockwood keeps saying my hair is ginger so I have been tempted to have mine coloured. Not that I have anything against ginger but my hair is not lol!!!
I'm sure it looks fab.
