It's all been a bit quiet


Hey Custard Lovers!

As promised, I'm back to share my card for the new Challenge over at Pollycraft. (If you're after a Cupcake, you'll need to head downstairs.) This week, my lovely Teamie Mary J has chosen Spooky Goings On. Easy Peesy!

I've used The Wizard from Swings and Slides - Enchant and Explore Set. You get a sweet Mermaid, a cute Fairy and a cheeky Pirate in this Set too. Play along with us this week, and you could win a whopping ten Pollycraft Images of your very own to love and play with! ;)

The Seam Binding is from Sew Sweet. Check out all the fabby colours in store.

Things have been a little quiet in Cassa Fluffie the last few days. Sweet Cheeks very kindly gave me a throat bug last week. There were times on Friday I was literally speechless. On Saturday I either sounded like I smoke 150 cigarettes a day or Daffy Duck on Helium. On Sunday, I did a lot of talking, and (prepare for a paradox) at this point, I don't know what I will sound like!! However, by the time you read this, I think my tonsils may well be on strike again!

Anyway, that's plenty enough from me... Ooh, ice cream is good for bad throats, right...?

Hi Faye - love the way you decribe the bug - I have had this now for two weeks, and the voice comes and goes. Yipee for OH - I don't talk over the footie, but neither can I get him to hear me when I would love a cup of something warming for my throat!
Hugs

Lou Mac said...

I hope you're feeling better now, lovely lady!
Really love this card, the depth of purple on his cloak and hat is dreamy and your take on the sketch is so neat. The rows of stars and the star charm tie it together perfectly!!

Thanks for joining us over at Quixotic for our 'Sketch Challenge' this month.
