Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!

Morning all.  How are things in your world?  Good I hope.  It's a bit of a meh morning here.  I was late getting up after a much needed lie in, didn't get dressed until an hour ago, and now I'm at a bit of a loose end.  Toad has already been out and about collecting a parcel from the people who had tried to deliver it twice in the week and now he is upstairs furtling about with cables and plugs.  I can hear the odd bad word coming down the stairs so I shall be keeping a low profile before a fight breaks out.

And speaking of fights (see what I did there, clever huh, lol) here is a simple card I made in the week.

It's LOTV's Jack, Patch and Puss having a Snowball Fight
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment banners are Penny Black
Gorgeous stripy paper is LOTV/Nitwits from Twas The Night pad
and that's it.

At work last week, my boss picked up one of my card mags and was flicking through it when she came upon the entry for the Cardmaker Of The Year 2014 competition.  Somehow (and I am still not certain how this happened) she has talked me into entering this year.  I know that I don't stand a snowball's chance in hell as my stuff is so no-frills but if it keeps her happy, and kind of to prove my point, I shall have a go.  I must admit though, I am a little bit frit.

Hope you have a super weekend (+1 for the UK) and have fun in everything you do.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Three of my favourite characters, I really love this image (and not sure it's one I have!). I've got my fingers crossed for the competition for you hun. ps, hubby clipped the curb today while he was parking and scuffed the wheel on the car. If you think Toad was making the air blue with his choice language, I reckon Paul could have matched it. I did similar to you and just kept my head down while the in-laws scurried away quickly. He calmed down a bit after I bought a round of ice creams to cool the tension!
