Late For Everything!

Oh my!  No, it's not a mirage, it really is a frizzy tailed Squirrel, just popping by very quickly.  Spending my whole life chasing my rather ample hindquarters just now - in fact I should be lean and mean, like a whippet, instead of a chubby (most of it is fur, honest) rodent!

Only one more day of work to get through, and then it's HOLIDAY TIME! Wheeeeeeeeee!  I am so behind with so many things that I think I may spend the week just trying to catch up.

And here is one thing that I am embarrassingly late with - a thank you card.

Love this Fizzy Moon character, but still finding him a colouring challenge.  Painted in Distress Inks and partnered with Dovecraft Back To Basics papers and lots of Pebbles Inc Candy Dots and the perfect LOTV sentiment from the Clear Additions range.  EK Success retro flower punch for the flowers.  Layout was inspired by a Papertake Weekly challenge that I was also too late for.

I am hoping that if I let Toad have his way with days out til about midweek, I reckon I could wangle a couple of crafting days by way of payback, especially as it is my birthday next weekend and he'll be being nice to me!  Well, he'd better be anyway (grin).

Hugs, Sxx

Hi Hunni - this is gorgeous and it doesn't look as if you find colouring him challenging at all - it's fabulous!

Make sure you catch yourself up pretty soon ...you don't want to be late for your birthday ;)

Well you may find him a challenge, but he's sure looking cute! Happy almost Birthday! Ya know if you've got any pull with your American cousins over here you'd better put the word out, I'm about to start off on a Squirrel hunt, the little buggers have polished off my peaches and are narrowing in on the blueberries!!!!
Hope that you have a fantastic vacation and get to do everything you want to, after all you're the sleak, non frizzy Birthday Squirrel!!
