Man Up, Pig!

Later than planned but I finally made it.  I have issues with Sundays - we get back from Church, have a bacon sandwich and sit down to watch an episode of The Bridge II.  Today we were watching the penultimate episode which we had recorded from last night, so I was quite keen to see how the story was developing.  But there must be a lethal kind of cocktail in bacon, reading subtitles and having Sir Furalot on my lap, because I was really struggling to keep my eyes open.

I got to the end of the episode and then surrendered.  TWO HOURS later I woke up in a total and absolute panic!

Which sort of explains why I am all of a tizzy and so behind with everything.  But I did manage a card this afternoon which I would like to enter in the Man Up challenge at A Little Bit Crafty

I just adore this stamp from Stamping Bella - he's Parker The Superpiggy
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment comes with the stamp
Papers are Forever Friends Best of British
Border punch by Martha Stewart

And that's it - except that isn't quite it, because there was inspiration behind this card, courtesy of my beloved Toad who tried to be a Super Hero himself this week and stop a cashpoint thief.  Unfortunately it didn't quite go to plan, and anyone watching the CCTV must have been rolling around with laughter, but the intention was there and even if he didn't quite pull it off, he is still my Super Hero.

Will be back in the morning with my Without Words DT card.  Hope to see you then.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Fabulous card, such fun.

What a Superman you have in your Toad, hope he wasn't hurt in any way, although you do say everyone watching the CCTV would be. So hope he wasn't.

This is so sweet, squirrel. Glad Toad wasn't hurt when he had a fit of superman.

Do we want to know what Toad did to garner so much laughter? "We're not laughing at you, we're laughing with you! ... okay, we're laughing at you." And laughter there was indeed--that this image! It's so awesome! Not only can pigs fly they can be SUPERHEROS!!! ! !!!
