Whoa the weekend!

Afternoon! I almost said morning, but it feels like it to me as I've not ventured outside the house as yet! Not even had the door open ;))

Just a quickie for now with my card for a double. This week over at Totally Gorjuss its a nice easy sketch - drawn by me therefore its got to be easy! It also fits in with the new 'anything goes' challenge over at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and sTanglar challenge too. (Its not only me that gets confused where the capital letters goes it it? lol) So I inked up this sweet new Tilda - she's got her arms full of hearts! I'm quite pleased with how she turned out.

The papers are some My Minds Eye 'Quite Contrary' and I've almost none left! What will I do when they've all gone? I love them! They seem to go with so many other colours. The bright pink backing card is fantastic - that's from Handy Hippo, its lovely and smooth, sturdy without being too thick. It punched beautifully with my Martha Stewart punches too. Even with the latticed heart one which is a good test. So that gets a BIG thumbs up from me. There's some beautiful colours too - trust me you NEED some! I've sometimes used paper to matt with but I do prefer card.

So there you have it - the card, this week Totally Gorjuss is sponsored by Joanna Sheen ;)) remember you got to be in it to win it!

So a couple or three pics of some my little girlies!

Now little Tinker is still a bit too keen to get to 'see' me! Luckily Big L was on hand! She actually looks sweet with her little feet dangling! Looks can be deceptive though, little bugger wriggled out and managed a quick chomp!

After a while in 'time out' that is back in the cage she behaved herself and settled down for a good preen.

When you look at the girls wing people often thing they're 'just green'. However on the edge of their primary flight feathers, thats the biggest ones, they're actually a beautiful bluey turquoisey sort of colour.

Harry is preening, they spend ages preening! Because she's fluffed her feathers out you can see it.

Gorgeous eh?
