Bunny Talk!

Afternoon all - isn't it the most glorious spring day?  Wonderful sunshine, perfect temperatures - oh if only it was like this for the whole of the summer, I would be the happiest squirrel alive.  With all this fur, when the temperatures start to rise it gets quite uncomfortable and my tail droops, but today is my idea of heaven on a plate.

Now, we've not had the coldest of winters this time around, apart from a couple of nights of minus something silly, so can you explain to me why our car battery keeps going flat?  To be fair to the car, it is coming up for fifteen years old and until recently we have not had a mite of trouble with it, but this flat battery lark is sending me up the wall.  You simply never know when it is going to happen - fine one day, flat the next.  And the garage fitted a new one when we had the MOT in November.  Rather than jump start it again, Toad took the battery off this time and it has been on charge for twenty four hours - in the kitchen, naturally (sorry, isn't that thing attached to the house called a garage?) so I am keeping my paws crossed that it will last for a few days.  I've got my already rearranged repeat blood tests on Tuesday and I'm going to be a tad annoyed if the bugger won't start!

Anyhoo, enough of my ranting and rambling - I have a card for you!

Ingredients for this card are
Stamped Image  Penny Black "Bunny Talk"
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Crafts Too - Spots and Stripes, DCWV yellow cardstock
Extras  Memory Box flourish die, Nesties, hole punch

I'm feeling a little sad that some of my Followers have decided to leave me - it's taken a long time to build up to the numbers I had reached so to see that going down again is a bit glum, especially as I'm coming up to my third blogoversary in a couple of weeks time.  I know we all have so many reasons for un-following (had to do it myself with some when I reached capacity) but it is like losing a friend.  Sorry to see you go, but you are always welcome back at any time, and thank you for following as long as you have.  TTFN.

Right then, I need to get some roast potatoes in the oven so that we can sit down to dinner before the England v France rugby match kicks off at 3.00 so you will have to excuse me, must dash!

Hugs all
