Together Forever

Morning Muffins!

When I saw the name of this sweet WOJ stamp, Together Forever, I was whisked back to a world of leg warmers, spiral perms and Rick Astley! Gets in your 'ed, doesn't it?! Do I know all the words? Was I going to marry him? I'd tell you, but I'd have to poke you in the eye with my hotbrush! And let's not muddy the waters by bringing Morten Harket into things..)

I'm running a little behind with things at the moment. Sweet Cheeks had a bit of a down turn last week, although he seems to have improved again for the time being. Very Understanding Hubby's birthday also snukkered up on me. It's been ages away for about a month and then suddenly, last week, it was tomorrow! On the same day as that, in true blokey fashion, Very Understanding Hubby asked for an anniversary card for his parents. For, yes, you guessed it, the next day! Could I find a Happy Anniversary stamp? Pah! Sweet Cheeks must have it stashed in the same place as my hot pink cotton!

I totally missed the boat with Cupcake this week, which is a shame, as Liza has chosen the absolutely cracking theme of Patchwork. Pop over to Cupcake for all the details and to see the wonderful creations from The Cupcakes.

Lucky for me, as things have turned out, there is no Challenge at Pollycraft Monday Challenge this week, but Paula is running a brilliant Tuesday Treat for one day only. Head over to her for all the details...

MadeByKarla said...

Hello Faye! Your card is adorable! I'm a big fan of birds ;)
I needed more polyester stuffing for my crochet toys and I wrote 'fluff' on my shopping list on my fridge. It's the only thing on my list right now and every time i look at it it reminds me of your blog. So, I thought I'd come and say hello.
Have a great rest of the week!

Davi said...

A truly delightful card Faye!! I love those sweet little birds and your fab coloring. The cut out hearts are so very pretty!

Bananastamper said...

Oh my goodness, they 80's - yikes, I was appalled when those fashions started coming back, I mean ewwwww!
Anyhow, fabby card girl! cute image and I love your doodling! Yep, leave it to the men to ask for it at the last minute. Mine has been known to say "What do you have in your stash hun? So and so is on their way over at I need a bday card!" If he is lucky, I have something generic in the stash that will work, otherwise he is out of luck! lol
I hope Sweet Cheeks continues to do well,
Take care girl,
