Summertime and some RAWRRRR!


I guess you're splitting your sides now you seen me write 'summertime' I can hear you now 'has she gone nuttier than usual? Summertime?? where's that then because its not here' I am of course referring to the latest challenge over at Totally Gorjuss I chose the theme of 'summertime' thinking well the middle of July almost it'll be appropriate because its summertime, allegedly. Unfortunately we appear to have been transported into some grey monsoon land place! I have to say I'm not so keen on grey monsoon land myself. I'm more a hot summer land place. So if the weathermen happen to be reading this send summer back please because I'm missing it.

So here's my card for the challenge which this week is sponsored by Crafters Companion One lucky peep will get £10 to spend in their online store. Good huh?

So I've inked up little Tilda with her lolly.

Isn't she sweet? Its obviously much warmer where she is if she needs a lolly to cool down with. I've got the brolly Tilda.... I could have used that couldn't I? She's been coloured with Copics and the papers are MME. And its my last bit, honestly I was hyperventilating when I cut it.

Flowers a la Wild Orchid Crafts.

Now those of you with a good memory may recall Lumpy.... Lumpy is alive and well and lives on the floor by my craft table. He likes it there..... Now my plan was to increase Lumpys circle of friends. Olivia, Frank and Roland appeared and then things kind of slowed up.... I felt I needed fleece to make these little critters squishier. JoAnns to the rescue! I've not seen any fleece for sale my side of the pond :(( So I'd like to introduce...

Wilf and Prudence! Now these two are lovely and squishy! Now I plan on making more of these little guys and then they'll be off on their travels. They'll be going to Kids Company which is a London based charity to help children.

So you've a couple of things to look at, if you'd like of course. The new challenge at Totally Gorjuss and the Kids Company charity - could you help them?

Oh and if you see the sun while you're out and about point it in my direction please!
