Nice weather... for ducks!


Morning Custard Lovers!

Monday morning means many things, but on this occasion, it means time for a new Challenge over at Pollycraft Monday Challenges. Sheena has chosen the seasonal (I've given up on summer!) theme of Autumn Colours, which made me happy as I love this colour palette. I had planned to dig out my all time favourite MME papers, but as usual, I went off on a Fluffie tangent. (Instigated my the mahoosive pile of 'stuff' I'd have needed to move to get to them!)

I've used Swings and Slides - Nice Weather for Ducks, which are fast becoming some of my favourite images from Pollycraft, they are so cutesome. Anyway, pop over to Pollycraft Monday Challenges to see the adorable creations from the rest of the girls and to get all the prize info, this week, provided by:

If you're savvy this early on a Monday morning, you'll notice I'm a Cupcake down. Scrummylicious Donna has chosen a fabby Challenge, A Gift Card. How much fun?! However, as time just seemed to run away from me last week, and I seemed to spend a good part of it trying to jump start my Inner Fluffie, I'm sitting this one out. But don't let that stop you from hopping over to Cupcake for a snifter at the wonderful creations from The Cupcakes and getting all the deets!

Well, that's all from me today folks... new week, new fairy dust and all that. :)

I think one of the fish in your sidebar's a 'floater'...are you feeding them? If you're gonna keep fish you need to be a 'resposible' person...clearly you didn't read that clause when you got them!!! xx
