Dodgy Diagnosis

Back again, second card today - you can tell I'm not at work and am ignoring the housework, lol.

Two challenges for this one as well:

And it really is simple as it's a one layer card
High Hopes stamp - Cat-Ching Rays
Hobby Arts sentiment
Polychromos pencils
Ultramarine Marvy le Plume pen for stitches

My crafty pal Jackie at Craft Designs made a comment the other day about me having "hundreds" of stamps.  I love how she has given me the benefit of the doubt.  Given how long it took to track this one down, I even scared myself.  I did a rough calculation - how many years crafting x stamps per month = eeeeeek.  Do you think our council would grant me planning permission for a change of use to stamp store?  Strange thing is, I still struggle to find the right one for the right occasion and just have to invest in another piece of rubber!  My excuse and I am sticking to it.

Housework?! What's that then!? I put my back out once lifting the Dyson so I'm not doing that again!! What a great card Squirrel, great facial expressions on all three!! xx

I love this stamp too its just such a fun image and I can empathise with never quite having the right image for what you have in mind though I have to limit getting new ones as the purse strings are pulled in other directions lol. Love that you are ignoring the housework too my latest excuse for doing that is kitten sitting my son's new baby, he has had her a week today and although I do leave her for periods so she gets use to being on her own(which is very hard) I am spending alot of time playing and at present am on the laptop with her asleep across my neck and though I know I should put her down I just haven't got the heart.

They won't be putting on my gravestone 'she kept the house clean and tidy' for sure. I've not seen this image before but it's quite apt (Arnie 'brought a friend home for tea' last week - not a goldfish, but a pigeon!) He looked quite offended when I screamed as he dragged it through the cat flap. 'But mummy, look what I brought home for you'. I don't think the dustmen were best pleased either. especially when it was covered over with a tray full of piss-covered cat litter. (like a crumble topping!)

Catch ya soon.
