In The Frame

Last night I caught up on some card making with this latest one for LIM's current challenge,  Frame It.

Simplicity itself, the aperature was cut with nesties and I sponged a background for the Wetland stamp (Memory Box) and the bird. (Inkylicious)
The sentiment, the same as last week's is by Penny Black.

Ta Dah Tuesday

I had to dash to Currys yesterday after Dad examined my washing machine which had been making one hell of a racket and pronounced it terminal.  Three hundred and fifty quid later (I also bought a small freezer)  and my laundry woes are sorted, just as well they can deliver this week as I came home to this mess earlier.


Bad Prudy, the throw on the sofa is now covered with little muddy footprints! I think she is feeling reckless today as she has also been  eyeballing a neighbours cat who had the temerity to stray into our garden. 'How very dare it!'  I must say it wasn't at all fazed by Prue, who soon got bored when there was no reaction and climbed down from the shed roof rather sheepishly.  




I scoured a few chazza's this morning, there was not much to be had but I did find a scarf and a vintage tea-towel which I'll show you next time.

Ta ra.

  1. My boys do that especially when I've just changed my white bedlinen. And I actually bought some brand new leggings from a real shop which lasted two whole wearings before Bad Bobby jumped on my lap and made a hole in one. I could have wept. ( I don't get new clothes very often!)
    Your card is stunning!

  2. Fab card and a great sentiment!
    Ours are being daft by a squirrel that's been standing on the sill on it's hind legs staring in at them. There's rugs and blankets all over the place! x

  5. Gorgeous card Fiona, love the inky background.
    My washer is playing up too. It sounds like a jet engine. Hubby thinks it`s the bearings and is hoping to mend it. I`m hoping for a new one :)

  6. The card is gorgeous, Fiona. Ergh, I hate it when appliances die. I hate having to shop for new stuff, and spend so much money on something so boring, and I get overwhelmed by too much choice!
    Oh naughty Prudy and her muddy paw prints. White bed linen is a no-no in this house, the cats would ruin it. We have a layer of cat hair everywhere as it is, and since at least 2 of my 4 are in killing mode, we have a layer of feathers and dead creatures as well. 3 birds and 1 rat so far this week. Nice.
    The photo of your neighbour's cat studiously ignoring Prudy is hilarious! xxxxx

    Boo to cats and their muddy paws, my muddy marks come from size sevens and elevens and muddy short cuts.
