Fish Are Jumpin'

Well the last couple of days have been so quiet and peaceful, but that is all going to end tonight when the hurricane (4 year old) son and OH reappear - although i think Whisper has gone on strike today, as yesterday i took her on a 3 hour walk ( i didn't mean to, but we got caught in an almighty downpour for 20 mins and had to shelter under some trees) and this morning when i took her out, she spent the whole walk 3 paces behind me !!!

For todays card i've used an image that was sent to me and one i have been meaning to use for a while, but never got round to it, but as there are a couple of 'Water It' challenges around, it gave me a good excuse. I've also finally cut into some fabby DCWV papers - Linen Closet that i bought a couple of months ago and all i've done since is stroke them !!!
