Morning all! It is absolutely tiddling down again - just got back from having a blood test done and now, apart from excavating the kitchen, I have the day to CRAFT!!! What a marvellous start to a long weekend. I feel a teensy bit guilty for having the day off work as poor old Toad has had a rotten week and is exhausted. It is really him who needs the break.
Anyhoo, before I go and get inky with design team stuff and finishing some orders, I thought I would share this little darlin' with you.
Ain't he just so purrfectly handsome?
This is Tulip Cat - my first ever Little Claire stamp, but probably not my last!
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are by Crafts Too
Sentiment is LOTV
We never had any tulips come up this year. A few daffs and that was it. My alium didn't show itself, the spring clematis went backwards, the jasmine had about four blooms, but dandelions - we have a lawn sprinkled with them but the green at the bottom of the road and all the verges are full of World Championship dandelions. I wonder if they have a garden for those at the Chelsea Flower Show? Toad has now planted some potatoes. You can tell he is not much of a gardener as he just shoved them all in together - no early or late crop for us, it will just be whenever they come up! But bless him, we bought some Blue Danube seed potatoes, we had some reds and some King Edwards that had shot, so we have a Red White & Blue potato bed. I did try to tell him that the flowers won't be those colours .....
And in amongst all this wet and windy weather, our nice neighbours (hello Paula and Steve) are trying to get some maintenance work done on their house. You would have thought that with it being the end of May you would be guaranteed some sunshine at least but no, we had hailstones and thunder and torrential rain again last night. I hope their builder is able to get finished without too much distress for any of them.
Right then, best I crack on ...... have a monochrome project to tackle. Whose idea was that then?
Hugs, Squirrel xx
PS. Edited to add - more Little Claire on the way ....... oops
