cards and crochet

How are you all?
Fine i hope
Here is my entry for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge we had to use the Zoobaloo cart and make anything that we wanted with an animal, i don't have this cart so i chose this cute dog from Everyday paper dolls and used my Gypsy to make a card. Below i have just used some scraps to make a tag and at night sometimes i just feel like colouring-in so i thought that i would make a card out of some of my coloured flowers. I have used my copics for these flowers and the stamp is Stampin up (so is the cupcake in the tag)
oooooooooooooooo look at my granny stripe blanket it is growing and i still love the colours i have chosen (sometimes i get half way and think :i dont like the colour) anyway not this time. I am about a third of the way i think and in these cold nights its nice to sit and crochet.

I have a duck roasting in the oven (yuk not for me and Joe) but for Caitlin and Andrew, the smell has gone throughout the house ugh, now i have to think of something for Joe and I. mmmmmmmmmm something yummy and fattening is called for.
Have a great week everyone, we have another week of school holidays here so i am getting in lots of sleep-ins.
