A Poorly Bear And Some Henry Love (Candy)

Hello peeps.  Are you having a good Sunday?  Regular readers will know that we had problems with our internet and Toad's birthday present a couple of days ago (sorted, but not via Wi-Fi!) - well, last night the router/modem/box of tricks threw a complete episode - it had more lights flashing on it than a Christmas tree.  As we had been out and it was quite late, neither of us could face trying to sort it out so we opted for the default setting of pulling the plug!  This morning, after a swift kick in its mainframe it seems to be working again. 

Anyhoo, that is technology hiccup No 1 over with, so here is what I was up to yesterday afternoon:


I'm trying to build up a stash of cards for this darned craft fair I said I would do - grit your teeth Squirrel, after all, it is in aid of the local children's hospice - and I realised that I have very few Get Well cards made.


I love these Basic Grey papers but wondered if they were maybe a little too dark, but hey, they are stuck down now!  Image is from a set from Kanban called TLC and has been painted in ...... wait for it ..... oh, you guessed, yes, Distress Inks.

So, have also been scrabbling around with some DT work and craft fair cards and I have been a bad Squirrel and neglected all my lovelies.  Which is what brings me to technology hiccup No 2!

Who's up for some love from Henry then?  Show of hands please ......

   
Brand new, never out of the packet Whiff Of Joy stamp and sentiment


I was going to do this with Mr Linky but .... grrrrrr.... he won't let me log in, so we'll have to do this the old-fashioned way.

If you would like to be entered in the draw for this adorable Henry then please leave me a comment below.

This candy will stay open for a little while so you have a chance to spread the word and will close at 9.00pm (GMT) on Monday 31st October 2011.

No rules, but it would be nice if you would be kind enough to observe the usual courtesies. 

Hugs, Sxx

Christy Beans said...

Beautiful DI coloring as always, my Squirrelly friend. I have always wondered if you get such great results by using your own tail hairs for your brushes. hee hee And I like the papers darker... nice and soothing. And it's not like they're death-goth-black or anything. LOL I'd also like to open my mail some day and see little Henry in there waiting to be inked up. ;)

I love today's card! A great get well and that huge teddy is adorable. I'd be thrilled to give Henry a good home. I'd promise to see that he got lots of ink, distress and otherwise! I know how you feel about technology...the phone co. left me without phone or internet for 3 1/2 days...things were getting a bit testy around this household! Thanks for the chance,
Hugs,
