We want snow!

Howdy Bloggettes!

Now let me just explain the title of this post. Yes we do want snow but ONLY over at Totally Gorjuss where I've just done a new challenge. A touch seasonal and topical I suppose ;)) We want snow on your cards. Easy huh? Now you know I set them so they're bound to be easy! I mean if I do complicated ones I couldn't do a card.... So I opted for snowy paper and a couple of snowflake buttons which I acquired in the USA. Now the choice of image.... its a Stampotique stamp. Now I know most of you will associate them with the Daniel Torrente stamps (which are fabulous) but they also do loads of other ones too! This one is part of a range by a talented young lady called Kylie Diorio. So I coloured this little cockatoo and made him into a galah. yes they are pink! A friend of mine has some parrot Christmas cards off me so these are perfect! The papers are by Papermania and this little chap has been Copic'd. I think its Santa's cookie in his beak! Well I know my naughty pair would pinch Santa's cookie if they could! They'd take the risk of him not leaving them any presents just to eat the cookie ;))

So as I've been neglecting you on the parrot photo front I thought I'd treat you to a few! Humour me please, these are my babies!

Now this is Little Tinker, she's having a really close look at Dan's pocket for some reason! I think she was planning to bite the button off if she got the chance! And yes she would!

Harry giving the camera case a very close examination! She's doing a bit better now, not 100% and still having the odd poorly spell but is quite bright and eating very well, but then again caiques are little piggies ;)) As the OM said this nicely shows off her big feet.

Now my little Princess Tinker. (Now this little beast, oh yes don't let this cute little wave fool you!) For the past while all she's wanted to do is eat me! So me getting this close without bleeding is quite an achievement I can tell you. Dan is rather good at catching her mid flight ;)) The OM fair to say is rubbish at intercepting her! He just says she's a sweet baby! Trust me looks can be deceptive ;))

Tinker again. Now these are what we call 'baby wings' in other words a spot of begging! But look at her legs, that's a touch of what we call 'fluffy pants'! Caiques wear 'fluffy pants' when they're in the mood for trouble! And bless you can see her wonky toe!

So there you are my babies!

Oh don't forget Totally Gorjuss either, its sponsored by Meyer Imports this week - their glitter is LUSH!
