Hi Bloggettes! Well it seems like summer is over... again! The weekend was lovely and sunny and warm! Now its back to wetness and greyness again... Bring back the sun I say!
Now to start you off I thought I'd treat you to a couple of photos of the girls. Now these are post bath. This is how they like to get dry. Caiques do a thing called 'body surfing', basically they rub themselves along things to get dry, mind you they also do it when they're dry. My hair is a favourite spot!
At first they decided to actually share the towel, Harry on the right and Tinker on the left.
Harry then decided she'll let her feathers dry naturally in the sun - all that surfing is hard work you know!
See its so tiring its even made Tinker yawn!
Cute huh? The downside though is that when they're wet they really pong!
So a card for you - this week over on Cute Daisy May the challenge was floral fantasy which basically means I wanted some flowers on your cards ;-)) No problem for me there I mean I can out them on mens cards! My OM is used to it now. lol
So here's a Christmas one from me, Daisy has been Copic'd and I did her little muff with flock. I did think of using flowersoft but decided it would be too chunky looking for what I wanted. I think the flocking worked out well in the end.
Now I was following a sketch.... notice the word was. I measured and cut my last piece of BG paper and realised when I turned it over I had the printed writing along the bottom! Seeing as it was an 8 x 8 card I could'nt get another bit out of it either! So after thinking/cursing for a moment (one helps the other) I reached for Martha Stewart well a punch anyway. A quick strip down the side and I think I rescued her. A few Poinsettias for the flower element and a printed sentiment.
Voila! Hopefully this shows the flocking a bit better.
So there you go my effort for today. I'd better get on - I'm now in my precious procrastination time!
