When I asked you to put the decorations up........

Morning all.  I can't believe it is Thursday already - where has the week gone?  We had a home day on Monday, and yes, the boiler man did come on time.  Tuesday was Toad's birthday and it was his choice to pop down to the seaside.  Yesterday we trekked off to the zoo.  We got there earlier than we normally do (after a brown pants drive down the A12 in heavy rain) and were pleasantly surprised to find so few cars in the car park.  We ended up being there six hours and saw just about everything.  We even had a surprise treat of a walkthrough of the lemur enclosure, which was amazing to have those little creatures no more than 18" away with no barriers between them and us.  Anyone who knows Colchester Zoo will know how hilly it is so my poor little knees are a tad on the sore side today!

Anyhoo, I haven't done any crafting since Monday (twitch twitch) so this is a card I made the weekend before.

This is a Wild Rose Studio stamp called Reindeer With Baubles
Coloured with Distress Inks and Polychromos
Papers are Dovecraft Back To Basics Christmas
Sentiment is Pink Gem
And a few Card Candi to finish off

We are supposed to be heading into town today for a few errands and to visit a friend this afternoon so I really ought to be getting my tail into gear.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

I'm pleased that you're having a lovely holibobs honey; the seaside and zoo sound lovely. Your card is so sweet, I love Bluebell, but I'd be twitching too if I didn't get to craft for nearly a week!

Lovely card. I love the cute image. You should put it into some of the Christmas challenges. Glad you had a good day at the zoo. My second grand daughter is doing work at Taronga Zoo in Sydney this weekend as part of her animal studies certificate 2 course.
