Three Mice and A Big Cat


Hello all.  Not only is it International Speak Like A Pirate Day, it is also our wedding anniversary and to celebrate we took ourselves off to one of our special places - the zoo.  We had the most fabulous day, and Toad has got some amazing photos which I will upload for you later in the week.

Here is my latest House Mouse stamp called Swiss Ribbons .....


I used papers from the Basic Grey Lauderdale pad, they are quite strong I have to admit, and the Papermania purple is not that loud in real life, honest!

And before I go I would like to share a very intimate moment with you


At the end of the afternoon we went back for another look at the Red Pandas.  At the bottom of the walkway to their enclosure is a window, tucked away, that no one really notices.  This is the male Amur Leopard and I confess to being in love with him.  He came right up to the window, sat down and just looked at me.  There was no one else around so it was just me, him, and the sunshine.  I will own up to be somewhat overwhelmed by his beauty and got a bit tearful.  It was such a special couple of minutes.


Hugs, Sxx
