Betty's first bath

Betty had he first bath on Sunday.  The weather was so hot we decided that it was an ideal time as she could run around the garden to dry off.  Poor thing looked like a forlorn drowned rat in the bath.

you could see that she couldn't wait to get it over with ! I had to give her a mohecan (sp?)

after a little run around in the sun I got the dreaded brush out and her hair exploded into a mass of really soft curls.  You just had to pit your fingers in and scrunch it all up!

Now you can see her say "Mum how COULD you - you've ruined ALL my street cred!)

3 different cards

What a rainy week it's been, just as I've got someone in to paint the outside of the house too!  I've made 3 more cards, all very different - I hope you like them, it was great fun doing them :)

This first one is for my son's mates!

This is because it is so grey out there I fancied some colour!!

This one was because I found some lovely bling!

Lots of love

Nothing for ages then all at once!

This is to show that naughty puppies, shelves collapsing and kids with exam stress have not stopped the crafting!!  There is another card, but as it is Christopher's birthday card I will post it later.
I love this little boy, there is a glaze on the boat but it doesn't really show.

This angel is the most beautiful stamp, I love it you  may see a lot more of it!

There I was surrounded by new toys, Pup asleep at my feet, when a huge shelf collapsed under the weight of my goodie stash :( fortunately we have a friend painting the outside of the house who has managed to put the shelf back up but instead of an afternoon crafting whilst I work, I'm clearing up and putting all the bits back :'-(

There has been some crafting, but not as much as usual as some chocolate coloured fury thing has taken over!!. I'll post card pics later.

Here are some of my favourite pics so far xx

This is Betty with her step brother Mack and step sister Mable.  Mack is a mizzy old git and won't play but Mable has great fun chasing Betty round the garden!!
