Smile = Seven


Morning all :)


It's the first Rubber Release of the year over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. And it's all about Chester, the cutest little monkey. Naturally, I've gone with the cool, ice cream version! Take a look at The Blog and see what The Misses have done with the other versions of Chester.

We had to return our kettle again yesterday. I say again, because it's the second one we've had trouble with. There must be a design fault, as the kettle leaked water in the same place on both occasions. And you don't need to be a rocket scientist to know that Water + Electric = Bad! Unbelievably, the shop refused to take the kettle back this time, as we don't have the receipt. We didn't have the receipt last time either, I guess it's luck of the draw as to who you get served by, but even though it was a shop branded product, and we were in that shop, it was no go. Now you know me and electrics. I did, not so long ago, toast the electric cable of the toaster. (Another cunning New Appliance Mission ...not long until my birthday!) We have a kettle that leaks water, and we have a Me. Asking for trouble? You decide. Do they KNOW who I am?! ;)

So it's a pot of boiling water now if you fancy a little cuppa then? lol Good luck! Loving your cute little tag. Great image, fab design and colouring. Happy New Year. Hugs, Jill x

Awwww I love that image and your colouring is wonderful. Fabulous design and papers too.
How annoying about the kettle, considering it is faulty and quite dangerous I think they should give a refund even without a receipt.
Take care!

Great card Faye - love the image. I returned my kettle just before Christmas as it was leaking water out of the window and then from the base - what's more if cost £45.00 so luckily I did have the receipt and got my money back and bought a different brand. It was a Russell Hobbs - I am now the proud owner of a non leaking Breville. Take it back again - you have customer rights. Good luck. Hugs, Claire x

Hi Faye, love your card, especially the way you colored the monkey's fur. Love your kettle story, but make sure you throw it out straight away, I had a shock from one of those things once and it's no fun I can tell you! Happy (and safe) Ney Year sweetie! Hugs Frea

Hi Faye
Super sweet tag. Love Chester.... I just wish he was not holding the ice-cream just when I am trying to stay off all the sugary stuff and he is kind of making my taste buds going with it. Do not even get me started on the kettles. In my case the things like lids come off and can't be replaced or cracks and leakages occur too which always happens outside the warranty and then I am always left with appliances with good engines in them so to speak but the plastic (not so fantastic!!) always lets the product down and unuseable for that reason.

We just got a new electric kettle; I wish we still had the old one but it started smelling like something was burning. As water doesn't burn, we decided it would probably be in our best interest to get a replacement... :D I LOVE the texture on your Chester.

Amanda R said...

Mmmmm, that cone looks yummy! Sorry about the kettle, you can always buy another and use that receipt to return the defective one but not sure you want another if two of them are bad.

I don't think I need the icecream (although it does look yummy - I'm a sucker for a 99) but I could do with the sunshine that prompted this guy to don his shades and chill! Super cute tag, Fluff! Great rick rack and I love the little scrabble sentiment. Happy New Year! Hugs, Lesley
