Hearts and flowers

Hi Bloggettes - cor blimey its cold! We've had some more of that nasty white stuff again today! Yipes more of the 'S' word, I was rather hoping we'd finished with it. Seems not, well at the moment anyway. Fingers crossed its short lived.

Anyway while I was out the other day and purely because I had to I bought this sweet little Tilda with her lollipop. I'm sure you'll understand when I said she made me buy her.... believe me the pain when she twisted my arm right up my back.... I had no choice but to cave right in...

So she was inked up and coloured with Copics. Her lollipop has been Glossy Accented just because it was on the desk really. Papers are 'Two Scoops' by Basic Grey. The swirly background has little hearts in the pattern and is a favourite and this was my last sheet! I was hyperventilating I can tell you. A few roses and cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts and punched leaves and she was done. The flowers they have there are totally fabulous! They also come in the neatest boxes too.

So because I've got hearts, flowers and a Magnolia stamp on it fits perfectly into the Just Magnolia challenge too.

So I managed to avoid getting the bin in the photo too - impressed Joanne? ;)) Oh and an 'arty' one showing the flowers. That's quite good for me, usually I cut them off when I try that!

Now the other night I was sat watching TV when all of a sudden I was covered in bird food! What the heck I thought??!! Well when I looked round it seems that Harry was under the impression that her dish was a bit full.... either that or what she wanted was right at the bottom. Therefore the only course of action open to her was to empty the dish..... oh boy did she!

Enjoy Kath!
