Let me introduce you to ...............

Our resident rat catcher, Tango, most often referred to as the "ginger furball". "Rat catcher?" I here you say," doesn't look like he catches rats". Well this was taken yesterday afternoon, after he had been on look out all day by the green house. As you can see exhausting work this rat catching. Yes, he had caught three young rats, "oh what a good boy" was that? I am sorry to say that the first two didn't survive, first one found dead on the living room floor and second one found dead on the lawn!!. "So what happened to number three", I hear you say? He brought it home to mum and let it go in her craftroom ..................... Now you know why he is not a good boy!!!!!!!!! I screamed and managed to keep an eye on where it went, Hubby to the rescue and he caught it by the tail. OMG, never a dull moment here!!!

Hubby has now spent all day today sorting out the top greenhouse and laying more concrete!!! Happy Sundays!!
Well on to today's card. This is totally out of my comfort zone. Very OTT and a Tilda!! I do own some of these little girls but they all face sideways or have their mouth covered as I so want to draw a face on them!! I have to thank lovely Vicky from Kips Cards for this lovely image that was sent as a RAK. Pop across and have a look at her work, it is amazing, I just wish I had her patience.
I think this covers a few challenges, I started using a sketch over at Fussy and Fancy but I think it has gone a bit wrong, I have got them around the wrong way, sorry ladies. The rest are;
Stamping for the weekend - Ribbons and bows
Cute Card Thursday - Mono Mania , mine is Pink
Roses on Paper - Layers, I have 11
Just Magnolia - Punch it out, mine is a border punch
Paperplay challenge - Shiney, happy people, I'm sure Tilda must be happy with her Glamour dust!!
By the Cute and Girly - Fairytales, I think Princess Tilda qualifies for a Fairy Tale
Allsorts Challenge -Petals and Pearls, I have used Liquid Pearls and flat pearls

I have used Princess Tilda image from Magnolia
Coloured with Copic Pens
Paper is Basic Grey Bittersweet Pad, gorgeous papers!
Nestibilities Oval and Scalloped Oval

Swirls Cuttlebug Folder
