Return of the Bear

Morning all.  Thank you for all your good wishes for mum's little op yesterday.  All went very well and she is feeling pretty good today - even managing to swat flies on the kitchen window!

We have woken up, like many of you in the UK today, to downpours and thunderstorms, which could explain the cracking headache I have.  Still, I don't have to cook dinner today as Mr Toad has promised me fish and chips, so I can have a moochy kind of day if I feel like it, although I am lurking by the letter box waiting for a couple of items of happy mail.

Right then, a little while ago, I did mention that you might be getting That Bear back again, and he has been long overdue in making an appearance.

So here he is - LOTV James Peeping
He's done with pencils, and I have left it a bit rough to give a sketchy furry feel, and as a contrast to the darker, smoother, background colour
Paper is a leftover from a piece of LOTV/Raspberry Road paper
And the sentiment is Paper Smooches

It's the F1 Canada Grand Prix this weekend, so I shall settle down later for the qualifying and (apologies to any Mr Hamilton fans out there, there must be one or two) I shall be willing Mr Rosberg to pole position.  Of course I dream of it being Mr Button, but got to keep it real.  His time will come.

Have a super Saturday everyone
Squirrel xx

This is such a cute little chappie he has felt neglected poor sole. I don't follow Grand Prix but I wouldn't be routing for Mr Hamilton after what he said about his home town. Lol!!!

Lovely card :) Such a cutie!
over here it's really hot. just been out to try and change my leg colour from blue/white to cream colour, but if course, 10 minutes in the sun and I'm red. Which will turn into blue/white again tomorrow... oh well... Might be watching the race tomorrow, but now I'm just going to try and tackle those bags and the suitcase for the clinic. bugger I can't take my crafty corner with me... hugs to you, going to miss you!
