Best Fishes

Yoo-hoo peeps!  Sorry I've not been around this week much, we've had a well deserved holiday and have been out and about a lot.  In fact, I think I am more tired today than I would be at work, lol.  And it is Toad's special birthday today - well, it would be special if he could get his birthday present working.  I bought him a Kindle (it was that or a three section aluminium ladder) and he can't get it connected to our ***** (expletive deleted, please insert one of own choice) Orange Livebox for the Wi-Fi.

Anyhoo, I didn't come on to moan about technology, I just popped in to show you a couple of projects, one quick and one not so quick.

Here is the quick one:

Can you almost see that House Mouse dribbling in anticipation of that gooey toasted marshmallow?!  I made this as a Christmas decoration rather than a card so it will simply stand on an easel on the bookcase.

And this is the not so quick one:

I made this one with a selection of 5 Hanglar stamps and an awful lot of masking!  As the picture is so big I kept the card simple by using this wonderfully sea like Doodlebug paper.

That's it from me for now - I'm taking the Birthday Boy out for a cake!

Hugs, Sxx
