Starfish!


Morning Peeps!

Very Understanding Hubby is on a training course in Nottingham this week and will go straight from there to Derby. So, although this means I'm packing up by myself again, it does mean I can pack things where I want them to be packed and they'll stay there (unless Sweet Cheeks gets hold of the box that is). It also means I can stay up playing in the Snug until the birds start tweeting. And I get to sleep down the middle of the bed in a star shape, with the (two) duvet(s) tucked up all around me. Although Very Understanding Hubby may argue I do all these things anyway! ;)

Thought I'd show the card I made with this weeks fabby
Sketch Saturday sketch. It's not the card I imagined in my head, or rather it hasn't translated from my 'ed to the card that well, but it's ok I guess.

Oh and the Bermuda effect continues. I noticed something else I wanted to use was missing last night, but can't for the life of me remember what it was now. I think my brain needs some more ice cream! Or maybe sleep?

Anyway, my Dear Sweet Brother asked how the packing was going yesterday. When I told him it's still quite relaxed because the sun is shining and Sweet Cheeks and I keep going to the park to play and eat ice cream, he sort of mentioned it's only a few weeks away...

Just that dragon image or is he a dinosaur?? Anyway he looks very friendly! Maybe bribing Daniel not to open boxes might work?? That's another ice cream then. Jill x

Sweet card, he is so cool especially for a small boy. Brilliant colouring too.
I cannot believe there are others that call the bed thing "starfish". My hubby is hardly ever away at night (he does have a couple of weekends away with the boys in the year) and he always says to me you can starfish when I am not here, and then adds "Whats new"!
HaHa

Sweet card! The image is so cute! Love your coloring and the buttons too! Happy moving! Just make sure you pack the non important things first like dishes and cookware, but leave the essentials out like your craft supplies! lol! Of course leave one bowl and spoon out for the ice cream!

Noreen said...

Such a cute card, & I love those papers, very pretty. Good luck with the packing (yuk job, closely followed by unpacking!) xx

Wendy Ramlakhan said...

Awww, this is super cute!! Love this little pink dragon and the paper's match perfectly!!! Good Luck with the packing!! I think SC is already trying to help you pack that's why you're missing so much stuff...you just don't know where he's keeping his box yet. :)

Hi Faye,
We have moved a lot already and I can tell you it seems impossible to pack everything ! And the moment you think you are almost ready, you're probably only halfway, been there, done that, but it will turn out OK no problem 'cause we women, can do everything, including some magic, can't we ? ;)
Greetz and goor luck !
Margo

So cute Faye, I think dragons should always be pink, it really suits them.
Enjoy your leisurely days with SC now, you can always panic later!
lol Chrissie xx

I love these pinks all tossed together so beautifully like this and the subtle hint of ink distressing - very nice. This is a cute dragon and the placement of buttons is really adorable - I'll have to "lift" it. :) I like the way you did the circle to highlight rather than leave it blank. This is really very lovely - great papers Fluff!

Andria said...

Yip, sometimes it's nice to have the whole bed to yourself for a night :). Gorgeous card...sooo cute!

Love the pink dragon and the papers are gorgeous! I must admit that I like having the bed to myself, apart from when it's cold and I need something to warm my feet on! xxx

Daniele said...

what a sweetie of a card Faye, I'm with you on the starfish.....I love finding the cold spots in the bed .....hot flushes I'm afraid so the windows have to be wide open as well
