Howzat!!

Afternoon all!  How is your weekend going?  I had my six-weekly tail trim this morning and am feeling much better for it.  I swear we have fertiliser in our water as my hair seems to grow like a weed at times.  Remember the immortal line in Despicable Me "It's sooooo FLUFFY"?  Yeah, that was me before the trim.

Anyhoo, a quiet couple of days for us as we are both shattered after a hard work week, so I have been crafting this morning.  I seem to have a lot of significant birthdays this year to deal with, some for friends, some for customer orders.  This particular one is for a former boss of mine.  Ever since I have known him, which has been many years, he has been fanatical about county cricket.


The stamp is an old one from Wild Rose Studio when they did a quirky range of stamps for men
I collected a few of them but wish there were more
Coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils
Memory Box Typewriter dies for the letters and numbers
Green paper is from the LOTV/Nitwits Bonnets and Bowties Solids pad

We have Hoi Sin Pork for dinner tonight.  Toad found it in the supermarket reduced-to-clear corner so wish me luck with it.  We have had some very hit-and-miss dinners from that corner but no harm in trying something new, huh.

OK then, I have orders for 18th and 21st birthdays to deal with so best I get on with it.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

What a great sentiment, and while it's a cute image, it's still perfect for a guy.

Those pesky special birthdays do tend to creep up on us, and I do struggle with them, esp the guys' ones.

You've definitely scored a century with this one though.

Hugs
