Sunny.... Saturday???

Hi Bloggettes!

Sunny Saturday? Well obviously I don't know if it is or not yet... fingers crossed though. I'm getting a bit peeved with the distinct lack of summer!

So I thought I'd treat you with a few gratuitous parrot pics!

I'd popped to the supermarket for one or two things. My 'able assistant' Tinker immediately came to my assistance!

'Right I'll just check this one for you Mum. Hmm reckon I'll have to get in the bag perhaps'

'Hang on I'll just get hold of the bag and pull it over instead. Crikey she works us little parrots hard'

'Oh its bread my favourite! Harry! come and give me a hand!'

'Oh I can't I'm busy'

Poor Tinker! She was trying so hard to get the bread out while Harry busied herself. Making herself beautiful that is! When a gal's gotta preen a gal's gotta preen! So preen she did. Once Tinker had got to the bread Harry went to help her then! I had to go and take the bread off them or else it would be destroyed!

So onto a bit of crafty stuff (yes I must, I know the parrots pics are better!)

I made this one using some of my new Magnolia stamps. I really like this background one. I stamped Tilda and masked her and then did the background. Coloured with distress inks and H2O's. A touch of paper from my stash, butterfly punch outs, butterfly charm, punched flowers and Autumn Leaves 'Ticketed' stamps.

I think she's worked out quite pretty - I was going to put some ribbon on but stuck it down before I did ~blushes~ So no ribbon in the end!

Hope you have a lovely weekend and that we please see some sunshine!
