Nature Abhors a Vacuum

You know how it goes, just when you think things are one way, Mama Nature comes along to set you straight.  I was just thinking to myself the other day that we seemed to have a bit of extra money this month.

Since Nature abhors a vacuum she promptly kicked an unexpected household expense my way.  And apparently Mama N really hates vacuums, because she made mine roll over and die.
And I didn't just have any vacuum either. I had one of those high end Dyson machines that start with a large one digit number and then has a couple zeros after it.  I don't know what Nature was thinking because I didn't have that much of a surplus this month.

I'm linking up with the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge this week because Anything Goes and my vacuum cleaner sure up and went.

The Fine Print: They say it isn't nice to fool Mother Nature, but She sure has no problems messing with us!  Stamps by Paper Smooches "Squeaky Clean," designer paper by My Mind's Eye, dies by Spellbinders, ribbon and glitter brad from my stash.

Oh I 'm so sorry to hear about your vacuum but I'm sniggering in me nickers. You are so funny. I take it you have bought a dustpan and brush then! Love the card.

Now that's a fun card to mark the occasion! I have a working Dyson, but when it dies, I swear I'm getting a Rumba! I'll watch that danged thing clean the house for me while I make cards! LOL

That dp looks like an electric cord. Perfect for your not-a-Dyson stamp.
(I learned that lesson about nature abhors a vacuum. My mom used to say the minute she got a raise, the bus company raised its rates.)

I know it is sad to spend money on a vacuum--doesn't get more boring than that, but I have to smile at your cute card.
