Some Odd September

Afternoon Fluffers :)

Can you believe it's September? The leaves are beginning to drop here and yesterday I was in a jumper and still cold for most of the day. I guess it's time to pack away the summer clothes and get out the winter stuff... Boo!

So, beginning of the month means a new Challenge over at Some Odd Girl and Kristy has given us this rather faberoony Sketch:


I absolutely luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve this sketch and have used it several times, which you'll see in the next few weeks. But, when it came to making this card, even though I love the sketch, I couldn't get my head round it! Of course, you can be as literal with it as you like, or add extras. Be sure to check out what the rest of The Oddies have done. Anyway, I guess you wanna see...


And there you have it.

Time for me to scoot. Sweet Cheeks has asked what Boo had for lunch. I told him turkey in jelly and he looks a bit perplexed. The mental image Sweet Cheeks has right now, is of Boo tucking into one of his pots of jelly with a spoon...
