Makes me smile - LIM week 168

It's been awhile since I entered a lot of my favourite challenges, but hopefully I can put that right this week. Starting with this my card for Less is More challenge - Makes me smile. This is a free stamp set with a magazine a year or so ago and I used the free papers that came with it to paper piece the image and cut out the Joanna Sheen banner, using some of the waste to balance the card.

On the point of making me smile. I just had a phone call from a chap who said he was from the hearing centre. Being a totally unsolicited call and a Bank Holiday, I thought I would play a little. I said "sorry what was that" he repeated he was from the hearing centre, I said "sorry, I can't hear you" he repeated his line, I said "hello, is anyone there" and he repeated.......... I had to put the phone down at that point, he obviously didn't see the irony! Of course the phone has just rung again, but I know the number now so won't be answering again.
