PJ's are sooooo last season!

Happy Sundae Peeps! I hope the sun is shining for you.

I have to tell you, because it's quite unusual, I'm really happy with how this card turned out! When I was colouring the image I was thinking I'd not use it again, it's quite tricksy, but it's coloured so well, I think I will...

Ok, enough of the waffle, I hear you saying, what's the new challenge over at Paper Sundaes? Let's Get Sentimental. We'd like to see your projects including a sentiment. Easy Peasy right? And, if you play along with us, you'll be in with a chance of winning some stash from Whiff of Joy. Pop over to Paper Sundaes and see the creations the rest of the Sundae Girls have created.

Since the clocks went forward and the evenings have been getting lighter, Sweet Cheeks has taken to playing in his bedroom for a little while before he flakes out. I'm don't mind this, as he's very good and stays in his room.

The other night, there seemed to be a little more noise than usual and quite a flurry of activity. After about ten minutes of listening to Sweet Cheeks opening and closing all the drawers in his bedroom, (luckily he didn't climb inside this time.) I went up to investigate. I thought he may have been looking for his favourite pj's, which were in the wash. Oh I laughed when I saw what was going on.

Sweet Cheeks was parading around in front of the mirror, admiring his handiwork. He'd taken off his pj's and pants and put on a pair of swimming trunks. All on his own!

I'm going to enter this card at:

Lovin' the card, Faye - the grey and red combo looks fab and your colouring is gorgeous (again!). Good for SC, getting changed like that by himself. Before you know it, he'll be at the bathroom mirror putting gel in his hair and the house will smell of Lynx! xx

Oh how sweet - bless his heart! Josh never wore PJs! As soon as he was old enough to let us know, he let us know that he hated them! And he doesnt wear them now - is 11 now!
Gets a bit worrying on sleepovers, but he seems to manage ok!

Your coloring of the robot is fantastic! I don't think I would even attempt it but you rocked it!

debby4000 said...

Oh Faye this is gorgeous, love the colours and the robot.

Jane said...

Does that poor boy only have one pair of PJ's...sheesh Woman! He roams in the garden 'shoeless' & now has to resort to wearing his trunks for bed! I'm sending some emergency clothing supplies immediately...OK he may have to grow into some of MY donations...does he like floral? Love your card, but have 'rolled-flower' envy. I keep on trying to make them but they either don't unfurl evenly or stand so tall you'd never get them in the envelope...sigh . I have to resort to squashing them flat! (Good job I have a huge butt!!)
