Oh Why Can't We Talk Again?

I'm feeling smug today, the hotpot was in the slow cooker by 0745 and a tray of flapjacks in the oven not much later.  Time to get creative with paper methinks.  The card stash was getting on the low side so I thought I'd create one for a few challenges this week.  No time for anything too elaborate as Dad will be arriving for Sunday lunch soon....he's off on his big adventure to Oz, NZ and Singapore later this week....lucky old him!  Here's what I did.


Items used were - Hobbycraft retro telephone stamp, Versafine inkpad, Cuttlebug border embossing folder. The sentiment was computer generated and the speech bubble drawn by myself.

Cas-ology - NBUS  (never before used stuff, in this case the telephone stamp) 
Darnell's NBUS challenge

Apologies for dreadful photo, the light is terrible today even with a daylight bulb and we're both fed up with this gloomy weather!



Thank you for all the lovely comments left last week, I was very touched that you hadn't forgotten me!

  8. Blimey, you do right to feel smug; dinner in the oven and baking done early on a Sunday morning is unheard of in this house!
    Love the card (and the Blondie title!) and the glimpse of darling Prudy Puss disapproving of the weather. xxx

  11. Love the photo of your cat at the window, the plant, and I should know the name of it but it escapes me, is stunning. Your Dad is going to have a grand time down in my part of the world. The weather is simply amazing at the moment. Did you not offer to come with him and carry his bags??

  16. Blimey, you must have been up at the crack of dawn. You're obviously a whizz at this time of the year, not like me, I've turned into a total sloth. I love the pic of the pussy cat and the hyacinth, the greeting card and the new blog header. Ooh how exciting for your day. Bon voyage! Xxx
