Really Wet Sunday!!

I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but it has been awful here in north west Lancashire. It has been raining hard all day with really gusty winds - not fit to put a dog out or a cat but not our cat who has been out in it most of the day - I think Max is part Turkish Water Cat he doesn't bother about getting wet but he does like me to towel him down when he comes in and almost brings me the towel to do it. It's really funny to watch him - he dances about by the radiator in the kitchen (where his towel is kept)until I pick it up and then jumps up onto the worktop purring his head off. Crazy cat.

Anyway I decided I was going to have a day in the craft room and finally managed to clear all my outstanding ATC books for UKSN - they will be off in the post tomorrow. I also managed to complete the following card for a new challenge that has started this week on Less is More Blog the theme this week is White/Pink/Black which is a super colour combination and I would also like to enter If the Shoe Fits ... Challenge ...Pink.

I also completed a few ATCs. I really like the orange/red one I think the grass stamp is very elegant (it's a Fred Mullett Stamp - he does the most amazing range of stamps) I just love using them. I would like to enter this ATC in the Corrosive Challenge Blog which is Red/Orange/Yellow.

This ATC just sort of happened I made the background paper with my trusty brayer about 9 months ago and today it just fit the bill. I have put loads of stickles on it but my poor little camera can't really pick it up. I would like to enter this in Our Creative Corner Challenge which is Tree Image CAS.

That's all for now bye.
