What a Day!!

We have just had one of the maddest days!!!

I had a friend around to do some crafting. Then another 
male friend dropped in.  No problem with that.

Then the phone went and they said it was our 
bank's fraud department!!
As there are so many scams around at the moment,
we thought it was one and put the phone down. 
Hubby called the bank and gave them the number 
that they had called from 
and they said it wasn't their number and to
just keep an eye on our account.

Hubby went to pay our car insurance on the phone 
and our credit card was declined!!
He called the bank again and they said the number 
was correct and it turned out that somebody 
was using our credit card online.
They had used it twice in the same shop and tried 
a third time but it was refused.
Fortunately our bank thought it was a bit odd, so declined it.

I know we have got the money back but we now have to get a 
new credit card. We then have to change our card details 
with all the places we are registered with!!

Scream!!!!!!!

Breath!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know this is not the normal card we would post but
I do have to make quite a few of these for my charity.

I bought the Inkylicious tree stamp at Thetford Craft Fair
a couple of weeks ago.

I do love their stamps as they are such good quality.


Well I hope you day was a bit better than mine!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving you lovely messages.

Hugs,
Carol xxxx

Oh no what a pain sll that bank card business was, they make me angry these scammers. Your card is gorgeous and perfect for a sympathy card which I think should be kept beautifully simple

I'm so sorry to read about your bank woes. I've had similar this week so can empathise. It makes me soooo angry that people think this is an ok way to make money. They're probably highly intelligent people to be able to do what they do, but just focus their 'talent' on making other people's lives painful rather than putting it to good use. I hope you get it all settled soon.
Lovely card and a beautiful simple layout and scene.
