This little Piggy......

The light is fading now so excuse the rubbish photo. Little Sugar Nellie Porridge Pig coloured with allsorts - Promarkers, water colour pencils and stardust pens. Background papers from a stack I have. Cuttlebug embossing strip which I then chalked a bit. Flowers and button from my stash. No greeting as I don't know where to put it and also this opens from the bottom as I stuck the paper on the wrong way.........ha!
Think it's a bit insipid colourwise but it does look better in real life.

Forever Friends Number 2

Not had a good morning as my printer decided not to print anything at all - did all the trouble shooting and eventually uninstalled the whole kaboodle then put it back and now (fingers crossed) all seems to be back to normal.
One of my new FF stamps this time - I know everyone else has had them for ages but I'm always lagging behind! Coloured with promarkers with a bit of glamour dust to sparkle up the present. Background paper is a Sweet Shoppe design - Always and Forever and the other paper is from the Forever Friends paper pad. Cuttlebug ornate corners cut in pearlescent card and some little Flora Doodle flowers from the Joanna Sheen web shop. Cuddly Buddly greeting embossed in white and that's it.

Thanks for looking.

First card of 2009

Well being in the mood for a change to make a card I got my act together and voila! Big thanks to Marion for the lovely FF image which was so easy to colour with promarkers and stardust pens. The paper is Basic Grey Two Scoops and I cut out the flower from underneath the bear and stuck it on the top. Cuddly Buddly greeting embossed in antique gold on a nestie disc cut for me by Marion again......big thanks my dear friend. Bit of sparkle and that's it.
Not very adventurous but I'm happy with it. Thanks for looking.

The Saddest Day

Yesterday I had to have my dear little buddy Twiglet put to sleep. Over the last couple of weeks he had been losing so much weight and hardly eating a thing so I half prepared myself for the worst. He gave me so much joy in the nearly sixteen years I had him with me and although I know I did the right thing I feel heartbroken.

God bless my little man and if there is a heaven for cats I'm sure he's up there chasing the mice like a goodun.
