Lollipop Lady


Morning Peeps :)


I'm running a little late this morning. Sweet Cheeks is home from school. Not because of the snow. He's not feeling well, and is a bit miserable with it, poor chap. I'm kinda glad he's home though, means we don't have to go out, we have quite a lot of the white stuff already, and more coming, thick and fast.

Boo, our cat, adopted us about a year ago. We don't know where he came from, he just turned up one day and never really left. So, I'm not responsible for his toilet training. I think Boo has lived with a bloke at some point. That's what I tell myself when I catch him trying to drink out of the toilet bowl! Anyhoo, Boo comes and goes as he pleases, and on the whole, takes care of all his 'business' outdoors. From time to time, he gets caught short, if he's in and we're out, for example, and generally will 'go' in the bath. I'm not too offended by this, as, out of all the places he could go, it's quite easy to clean up. This morning though, for some reason, Boo decided to answer the 'call of nature' over the plughole in the kitchen sink. Eeeuuuw! Naturally, Very Understanding Hubby declared the Clean Up Operation a Pink Job. After discovering what looked like a half digested dormouse in it, I declared it a Blue Job. Very Understanding Hubby blanched, and then wobbled. Sigh. I get all the good jobs, me... :(

Over at My Mum's Craft Shop, this week's theme is Lots of Layers, which had me worried for some weeks. I actually really enjoyed it when it came to it though.

Nothing gives me greater joy in life than an image so obviously based on me & my skinny figure & shapely legs. Bravo you for showcasing me so well. Now...where's that pork pie?

You've done a great job with the layering and the distressing of papers! A sweet and beautiful card!

Another gorgeous card, Faye! A fabby image, beautifully coloured (lovin' the folds in her dress) and the hearts are gorgeous. Hope SC is starting to feel better - it's probably as well that you didn't have to go out today. None of the white stuff here, for a change. As for the cat, good for him for finding somewhere reasonable to go, when needs must. As our dog gets older, he's becoming a little unreliable in the toilet department, but I'll spare you the gory details! xx

Lorraine said...

Sarah said...

Hi Faye, still making fabulous cards I see! I really should get over here more often, then again no I shouldn't I'd just run off and buy all the stuff you use!

Sarah

PS - Your Boo and our Miss Miss T are definately a separated couple - she went in the bath when she first arrived as well!! Have also seen her squirting (if you get my drift) standing up against a tree, never seen a female cat do that before!!!

Sarah said...

Ahhh and 'im indoors does all the cat that end cleaning - I'm in charge of when they do something from the top end!

And forgot to say, hope Sweet Cheeks gets better soon.

Anna Sigga said...

Janice said...

Love the coral colour of your brilliant card. Jx

Leeann said...

Where can I find these "Pink" and "Blue" lists? Is it standard???? I would have to draw the line at Purple though, they would always lean more toward Lavendar than Violet.

Sara I. said...

Hope your little man is starting to feel better. One of the girls was home all week sick with it, too!
Gorgeous card Faye - love all the distressing and the hearts you created. Amazing peachy shade of pink - love the image and the doily!! Simply stunning!

Amanda R said...

Perhaps you should keep a litter box in the house "just in case" hmmm? Anyways, great job with the uptown girl and did you enter this into the SCS challenge hmmm did ya? It would fit perfectly!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Get out of here! That image is fabulous cut out! Love it! Pretty colors. The distressed hearts look great!

Grenouille Greetings said...

Love your distressed feel, Fluff. Super little image, prettily coloured. So sorry Sweet Cheeks was poorly. Hope he is feeling better now! Loved your Boo story. Definitely a blue job in my mind. Have you considered a litter tray for emergencies? Hugs, Lesley

Sandra said...

How do you find the time to create all this gorgeousness!
