Another weekend looming, hooorrrayy! I love the weekends, usually I have this unrealistic idea that im going to get more crafting done, in reality it never transpires! Last week I don't think I got any done! I have high hopes for this weekend although already I have chunks of the weekend taken up. Tomorrow we have to go and choose Jasmines mini-lops as that's what she wants for her birthday (which is Monday), then we have to go into town (which I hate at weekends) to buy her trainers and recorder. Then Sunday mid day we are being invaded by 5 of her giggly girlfriends and little Tom who thinks he's a donkey!!! dont ask x
Ooh and of course this weekend im hoping to get my hands on at least a couple of the new Whiff of Joy stamps being released. I am so excited about it, I love those stamps!!
Now before I go onto the challenges, I have noticed that for some unknown reason I am not receiving alot of my emails. It may be best not to use the link on my profile but to email me on or . If anyone has emailed me over the last few weeks and not got a reply this is why. I promise I answer anyone who takes the time to email me. GINA if you are reading this I havn't received the email you said you were sending, please re-send it to me. Thank you.
I hope this is classed as a wild animal! I am not sure what stamp company this came from although I have a feeling its one of personal impressions. I have coloured it in using my aquarelle pencils, the papers are from the Boxer range of Basic Grey Papers ahte flowers are prima and the the lace is from my stash. Brad diamantes are Papermania.

I have used another one of Sally-Anns beautiful images. I adore this little bird. I have used some papers that I brought off Ideal World ages ago. Some Maya Road velvet flowers and some pearl flat backs from stash. I have made this for a friend, but luckily she doesn't have a blog so it wont ruin the surprise!
You'll be glad to hear thats me done for today, hope you ladies have a good day, and get plenty of crafting done. Big hugs Linda x
