Hi there Bloggettes!

Hope you're all well and not too fed up of this manky weather! Its so mixed up! The OM and myself managed a game of golf with some friends yesterday (I haven't been playing as I've got carpal tunnel syndrome) and it was lovely.... apart from the fact that some vile beasties had a real feast on my leg! I now have one normal leg and one which looks as if it should be on a pink elephant... Oh make that an itchy pink elephant!

Anyways itching aside I do have a couple of ~ahem~ treats for you lol

While I was blog hopping the other day I came across a sketch for the Whiff of Joy challenge done by the fabulous Bev. So off I rushed to make a card using a Whiff of Joy stamp.... when I finished I realised I'd used a Tilda! PMSL! I mean someone tell me how are Tildas like Whiff of Joy stamps? If someone knows please tell me because I obviously have no clue! Still I think its a pretty card and a lovely sketch, nice and simple - just like me!

My second offering (gosh I know how to treat you well don't I?) is my card for this weeks challenge over at Cute Daisy May. I set the challenge of 'Pink and', being generous the DT girls could choose which other colour to add. I almost went for green.... but then thought I always do that! So I had a look at my papers to see what else I had with pink in. I rooted around and found a pristine untouched pad of basic Grey Euphoria lurking on the shelf. I blew off the dust and rashly tore out a whole sheet! After I'd caught my breath I then cut it! Boy was I on a roll here, so I put it back in the cupboard, I mean enoughs enough right? So this is my little effort. There are some super cards from the DT again.

Finally the last treat - and arguably the best!

My little Tinker is a feisty little Madam. She will often shy away at new toys but not at the cats! Dudley had decided to come and sit on my lap.... as you can see little Missy Tinker wasn't impressed!

It wouldn't be the first time that she's bitten him! Because Dudley is a few sandwiches short of a picnic (or dim if you prefer) he'll still stick his nose through the bars to say hello!

Till next time Bloggettes!
