News about Harry! and WOYWWD

~waves~

Hiya Bloggettes! A surprise appearance from me - less than a week eh? How lucky for you :)) Well as usual its been a trifle busy here at Caique Momma Towers! As well as all the baking and golf a dramatic weekend.

The lovely Harry was poorly and had to go into hospital! Oh my what a time it was. Poor baby was being sick and with her only being a little chickie would soon have become dehydrated. It took me ages to find an Avian vet! Our normal one was on his weekend off (typical) and every other one I tried had a locum service in! Eventually I managed to find one - the other side of Loughborough! Hardly on the doorstep. So off we rushed - every plonker this side of London was on the M1 south at the same time as us! GRRRRR!!! I mean why drive in the middle lane when you aren't going to overtake anything for a mile? Anyway the long and short is she's been, stayed the weekend and is now back home! Oh she's come home a touch bitey! I'm hoping its not the dreaded hormones :0(( I'm hoping she's just a bit ticked off after her trip.

So restricted view of my WOYWDW! Why is is restricted? Well..... now this might sound like I'm a numpty.... as if! I took a photo of my desk with a little tease of something behind the card. Yes Bloggettes I was trying to tease you! But if you recall I've suddenly learnt how to crop my photos? So I cropped them..... only thing is these were ones I wasn't supposed to crop! Doh me eh? So add in being a bit knackered I couldn't drag myself back upstairs! Or if you prefer idle moo! You'll be able to pop over to Julias to check out the clever peeps who've played properly ;))

Anyways I've made a (little) start on a few Chrimbly cards!

I got a small haul of new LOTV cuties - so I used the Father Christmas and Mr Snowman. Both Copic'd.


Mr Snowman has had a swich of Glamour dust and is sat on a bed of Twinklets snow, the paper is some of last years Bo Bunny. Now I know my photography skill are mint(!) but the paper is more turquoisey than blue.


I did the little ornamenst on his arms with a touch of Copic glitter pen - which you can't see lol

Now isn't this little Santa a cute little guy? The sentiment is from Stamps Away and was a real bargain buy. Flowers from Wild Orchid.


Before I stuck him down I sprayed the image with some Crafters Companion Iridescent Glitter Spray - it looks fab! A subtle sparkly effect. Again you can't see it on my photo!


So I think I've only another couple of hundred to go and I'll be sorted. I reckon by April I should be OK......
