Boo! Guess who?

Well hi there folks! Tis only little old me sneaking back in again! Now I seem to have come down with some kind of lurgy.... so thanks to whoever gave it to me!!! I really don't have time for it to be honest. So I've kind of grounded myself... well till I get bored anyway. Oh that doesn't take long ;-)) My boredom threshold is real short! I think its about the same as a goldfish....

So howabout I give you a photo-fest? Well I do feel I've been abandoning my reader! So I thought I'd give you a weeks worth of pics in one post!

So you recall Jasper our poorly kitty cat? He's not too well at the moment but fingers crossed he perks up soon - well he's turned into a real bed cat. Talk about make himself comfy!

I mean where else would you expect to go when you feel the need for a spot of personal grooming?

Now a new challenge has just, well yesterday anyway, launched over at Totally Gorjuss Its real complicated this week.... AS IF! Its simply to use some spots and stripes on your creation. Heck the challenges will always be easy - I mean I usually pick them!

Well this week has seen the Big L's birthday. Now male themed cards are picky enough to make... but even more so for my nearest and dearest. Big L is a game nut! So this Mo manning image is perfect for him! Coloured with Copics and a touch of pencilling for a bit of depth.

I have to say I rather like it. Now much as I love flowers on my cards I don't think the Big L would share my love of them! The corner looked a bit nekid, I tried a corner die cut and then decided on a little star button and a spot of twine. The sentiment is one of the new LOTV stamps. LOTV are this weeks sponsors too.

So while I'm in photo mode....

Here's a cute little peg bag I made in class last week. I think this fabric is fab! It has the funniest sayings ;-))

So when I got home I decided to make a simpler one, well mainly because I had no ric rac!

And I think I've been lacking in chickie photos too.

So here's Harry just relaxing! Yup she'll lay like that in your hand for ages! If you tickle her ears she goes to sleep.

Naturally Little Missy Bitey Britches was busy....

Oh there's a glass here.... I wonder if there's anything in it?

Oh wow there's a drop of juice in the bottom! Can I reach it?

Right that's the last drop licked out of there then!

Now Tinker was determined to make sure that all the juice had gone - 10 minutes she spent inside the glass!

Spring and snow?

Well howdy!

Well last week I was cock-a-hoop! Well for me anyway, it appeared that spring had indeed sprung! Our lone daffodil had poked its head through the clay - all the others having vanished over the years. No chance of them increasing here! My back twinges if I even think about when I planted two sacks of bulbs one afternoon! What a waste, I could just have planted the one and been done with it! Its always the same one that valiantly appears each year. Maybe I should send it off to a bulb grower for them to reproduce it as an especially strong variety? But then we won't have any in our garden..... I do think that lone daffodil is a tremendous display! And then on Sunday it bloody snowed! Er I thought Spring was here? Luckily the snow amounted to nothing. If it had you'd have heard me proper moaning!

So while I was enjoying the weather I made this little cutie up for the latest challenge over at Totally Gorjuss. This week we're sponsored by the wonderful Joanna Sheen. One lucky person will get £10 to spend on line!

I used my newest Tilda - she's stamping! Isn't she just super? The papers are Basic Grey 'sweet threads', WOC flowers and lace from stash.

The obligatory 'arty' shot! Love those two tone sweetheart blossoms ♥

Now here's Jasper. he's not doing too bad at the moment. Still uber skinny but he's going for a wander round the garden when he likes and still taking up most of the bed! That's 'our bed by the way! Here he is sprawled out - long isn't he? You can still see where he was shaved :-(( This is actually a holdall which he claimed! He thinks its a cosy cat bed.

There's also been some sewing!

Now this is a patchwork bag in various blacks and greys. Its got inside pockets which are useful. I do like it its quite a handy size. Not too big for me to cram it full and make it weigh a ton!

I liked it so I made another one in pink!

Thanks for visiting me today - I will hopefully get around to see you soon - things are manic here as usual. There's some BIG hassles on the horizon..... families huh? got to love em......
