Dill...

Morning Fluffers :)

Nope, I'm not talking about the herb. Although I am partial to a little Dill with my smoked salmon at Christmas! Yummy, scrummy. But let's not talk about that until 24 December. Bah Humbug.

This little fella is called Dill and he's from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Monday morning means Inspiration time over at the Little Miss Muffet Blog, I hope you have time to pop over...


Monday morning is also time for a Cupcake. Our Challenge is Number Cruncher this week... we'd like you to incorporate something numeric on your work. Simples. Why numbers? Well, it's Cupcake's 200th Challenge. Cool, right? We have stash up for grabs from Quixotic Paperie and Sassy Studio Designs.


I've been having a bit of trouble connecting to the Internet over the weekend. Actually, my little pink laptop has been getting slower and slower for a while, and I've been getting crosser and crosser with it. Very Understanding Hubby says it's because I've spanked it to oblivion. While I agree, my laptop does receive a lot of attention from me, I wasn't convinced that was the only problem.

Well, yesterday, while I was ranting about stoopid pieces of plastic not doing what I want, writing mental letters to pooter manufactures and Internet providers, and generally being a prima donna, Very Understanding Hubby offered to 'take a look'. He had to duck as a piece of pink electronics launched towards him at high speed. After about ten minutes of fiddling, and telling me something about missing filepaths,
(I'm from the 'who cares why it's not working, hit it' school!) all of which went over my head because I was still sulking, he handed it back, connected to, and staying connected to, the Internet. Happy Days.

I'd like to enter this card at these challenges...

Hi Fluff! Dill is a sweetie... but not with salmon! I have just been taking a peek at your cards over the last urm 2 weeks or so... I have missed SO MUCH! Where have I been? Don't know! Anyway, I adore your brother's wedding card, I do love a bit of blue! Oh and the little cloud card made me smile... too cute! You are a master at your craft Fluff! Oh, the Galaxy looked yummy too!

Here in Australia, we would call someone a 'dill'. It is a bit like a joking way to say that you are silly, or a bit of a 'twitt'.

Now a twitt is someone who is silly or a bit of a dill. (he he)

BTW... cute card! and great colouring Faye. xoxo

Please send very understanding hubby to me as my computer has been getting slower and slower and slower and my blog visiting is constantly interupted by error messages. It took me 2 hours yesterday to do a 10 person blog hop and it's driving me mad so please send VUH my way! Oh - and your card is a cutie! Hugs, Lesley
