Time for tea?

LOL I'd love a cuppa this size, I do have a bit of a tea addiction, even better if it comes with a wee choccie biscuit 😉😋. This little lady was a recent purchase from Stamping Bella - I always struggle to colour pleats but this one turned out OK (not sure why or if I could do it again LOL). My card looks better with darker colours in real life, reckon it's time to get my daylight lamp out!

We had a milestone birthday during the week ... Miss Molly turned one!  We went down to our local pet shop to buy her a birthday cupcake, unfortunately they didn't have any but could order us a cake for her ... for £20!!! Umm I don't think so!  So she just got extra treats instead.  Here's a few pics of her with a strawberry!  She will eat little bits of yours but she didn't quite know what to make of a whole strawberry to herself ... the daftie ate the tiniest bit and then ended up playing with it in the garden for ages!

Cactus thanks

 Hi all!  Well we finally got a wee share of summer, lots of sunny sunshine and not a cloud in the sky all week!  A good week to book off work!  Though I have to confess the high 20's are plenty hot enough for me, I definitely couldn't cope with the temps they've been having in the south of England.  Looks like normal service will be resumed tomorrow with heavy thunder showers due and warnings of flooding!  The farmers won't be happy - we were out for a drive during the week and every farmer in the land was either on the road or going full ding getting their crops harvested.  I'm sure they would have been glad of another few dry days!

I got a few images coloured while I was off, and this is one of them - a really old Nellie Snellen stamp.  My heart die is from MFT, though by the time I stuck my image down I'm not entirely sure you would know it's a heart!

Miss Molly loved all the sunny weather, and spent most of her time snoozing or playing in the garden.  While we were in our local park I thought I'd take a pic of her to share with you.  Nope, this pup is not interested in the camera, not one decent photo out of the lot of them LOL

 Hi all!  I see blogger must have done away with the follow by email option, so apologies to anyone who used it on mine!

I was delighted to see that Just Us Girls challenge this week is to CASE a favourite designer, so here's mine!  I have been a long time admirer of the beautiful cards that Iris makes over at and have frequently been inspired to go shopping because of her!  Have a look at her much superior card here and you'll see what I mean! So here's my version of her card...

Stamps from Creative Depot, butterfly dies from Penny Black and new scalloped die from Pinkfresh Studios.
