Milk and Cookies anyone?

Yay me!! I managed to sneak in a bit of crafty time today while Martin was out and about doing tractory things!! Not one to let the grass grow I hot footed up to my work room and made this...

I took inspiration from a couple of current challenges. I am much enjoying following sketches at the moment as time is short and the mojo is often lacking!! It was also an opportunity to ink up another stamp that I found in the My Mum's Craft Shop Sale. I figured she would be easy to cut out so didn't invest in the matching die this time!! Promarkers were used to colour her to match the papers ( I would quite fancy a sofa upholstered in the plaid!!) they are Forever Friends, Kraft Notes that Bev Rochester  and her blog MADE me buy many years ago when I was first dipping my toe!!

Well, I must love you and leave you. Bowie, Bumble and I must go and tuck up Surprise for the night. She isn't too well at the moment, she has a ligament injury which means confinement in a small paddock during the day and her stable at night. I am not sure how she managed it, high jinks in the field I suspect. I have a suspicion that it may mean the end to her being ridden so she will have to join us dog walking instead...not sure how she will get over the stiles mind you!! Anyway, be positive Sarah, on the other hand, given time she might make a full recovery...fingers crossed.

See you later in the week for some DT inspiration. Until then take care.

  13. Oh dear poor Surprise, but keep looking on the bright side as animals seem to be incredibly resilient and seem to bounce back when we least expect it. Heskey has just been diagnosed with Cataracts, at the moment we are not sure if or what they will do and waiting for an expert in that field to visit him.
