Good Morning!
Our Son came back of his holidays last weekend? Nope the snake didn't go home. I've seen them twice since, but, no mention of when they will collect..just a vague will sort him out..Up to press I've bought new bedding and a further supply off food lol..Could be anytime? Might even be here until their next holidays? Yikes doesn't bare thinking about!!
Today sees the start of another Challenge over at QKR Stampede
Here is my DT card

This weeks Challenge #154 Cowboys

Cut with my Cameo and coloured with Copics..
Papers  from stash..Sentiment Computer..
When granddaughter stays? you tend to remember things you did when you were younger.
I've cut paper into strips and 'basket weaved' them..Freya also had great fun trying this out..
The little 'lasso' is again strips softened with a dab of water and then plaited..

My son(complete with dog and snake) came home last Sept when his relationship finished-he moved out a couple of months ago and now it is my dog? and also vague comments about arranging to move snake which I am also feeding and cleaning good job she is docile and loves handling --Thank you for joining us at Crafting With an Attitude
