Scooter Dog


Well it's nice to say for a change that it is lovely and sunny here today, yipee.  Yesterday i took son to meet the fabulous childrens author Emily Gravett - she's written some amazing childrens books, but before that i decided to do a balancing act with 3 cups of coffee and 1 of them decided to spill down my front, i'm ok and a pack of ice and lavendar oil saved me fortunately from a nasty burn.

The image i'm using today is one that i purchased from the lovely Dick at PB Stamps just before Xmas, and i also couldn't resist the fabby Doodlebug papers i found in The Glitter Pot !!! I swear i'm getting mean in my old age !! - the sketch required something in the middle of the ribbon and as i didn't have a buckle, i went for the next best thing a ribbon brad coloured brown with a permanent marker and if i say so myself i think it looks rather good too.
