Inky Sprinky Hot Water Bottle Thief


Morning Peeps :) 

I have another tag to share today, but it's a bit different to yesterday's...


Very Understanding Hubby worked away from home this week and needed to, as Sweet Cheeks put it, sleepover. This meant a quiet night in The Flufferie for me and I was looking forward to sleeping in a star shape diagonally across the bed. (This is not unusual. Not being reprimanded for doing it is the novelty!) And, not only wapping the heating up to sub tropical, so I didn't need to sleep in Arctic Circle Approved Socks and PJs, but 'accidentally' forgetting to switch it back to Very Understanding Hubby Approved, from Go Baby Go! Happy Days.

Anyhow, with Sweet Cheeks stashed in bed, I turned all the lights off and headed to The Flufferie, via turning back my bed. After all, the heating would warm the bed up like an electric blanket. With all the lights off, Boo, the cat, took this as his cue to assume the night time position. Namely, just next to where my feet would be. 

Several hours later, armed with my hot water bottle, (well, I did only have a nightie on!) I went to bed, tucked my feet in and pulled. Nothing doing. I turned the light on, and discovered Boo, in a Snuggled In The Duvet Coma. There was some discussion as to why we should share the duvet, before he got up and said 'fine, you have it, see if I care' and then sat on my hot water bottle. No fair!

Inkylicious Ink Dusters (brilliant for tickling Sweet Cheeks with too)

Hee hee! This made me chuckle! I love the ol' Star shape bed position! I sort of look forward to nights alone for this reason! And your cat sounds like mine too, although I'm usually too soft to move her!!
Gorgeous tag by the way!

Oh, it's not just me that sleeps in a star position, huh? I thought I was unique! Lol Stunning tag. I love the background, the die cut and the pearls give it a luxurious feel. Really gorgeous. Hugs, Jill x. P.s sorry I have not been around very much lately, had so much going on. Hope to visit you more often from now on. Xx

An imposter has left a superbly inky tag on your blog, Miss Fluff! Did you give your permission? It really is a beautiful tag too! Love the die cuts and all those pearls and it's been inked and stamped divinely. I know it's an imposter because there is no twine! There is a picture of it just after your funny story about Boo, duvets, hotties and heating! Hugs, Lesley

ps. I always get to sleep rigidly on one side with no part of my front or back connecting with the mattress in the 6 inches left to me between my kitty (who curls up small against my belly using 6 inches of the bed) and my husband (who also likes star shapes) and uses the remaining 5 feet! x

Sarah said...

Y'know Faye, I don't visit for a couple days and look you go make the most perfect cards and tags. Is it because I stayed away, or is it because you is a genius??

Love the sleeping habits story - made me laugh! Want to know something either very funny or very pathetic? Hubby hugs a soft toy tiger at night (not me I hasten to add, I don't look good in stripes!) to try and make Oscar the cat sleep down the end of the bed and not on the pillows!!

It was SWMbO's idea and it does seem to work at the moment - we're not sure if he thinks it's another cat or he just can't find a way past the toy!!

Have a good weekend.

Faye this is gorgeous! Love the stamped image and the inks you colored the tag with are absolutely stunning! Joe is gone to "sleepover" too so my kitties will be keeping me warm aka hogging the bed tonite too.

Jenny said...

Wow! That background is amazing Faye and those pearls on the die cut flowers look fabulous. I didn't think that I needed this die but ... bugger ... now i do! hugs x
