Purrr-fect Time


Well as i type this i have 4 men in my house (and none are that good looking either !!!) 2 plumbers and 2 electricians putting a new boiler in for us- we coped ok last night without any heating - but it was the no hot water and kitchen covered in brick dust that did my head in !!!

Ms Savage (Paul O'Grady) was brilliant in 'Aladdin' and it was really good as we managed to meet up with an old friend (Jane) after, that we haven't seen for 18 months.

Right onto todays card - it's using a PB stamp that i managed to get in a half price sale (along with a few others) earlier in the year and i thought it would be purrrfect !!! for this sketch and for some paper piecing too. This is also my 9th Mothers Day card for the troops, so only 1 to do.
