I know 'cos the birdies woke me up at 7 a.m. this morning singing their little hearts out!  Even got the washing on the line drying nicely!

So I thought I would do a spring type card:

Spring Is Nearly Here

Hello everyone!  Its been a gorgeous day in Zippy's part of the world, lovely and sunny even if it is perishing cold!  Its been almost spring like and Roly has been sat outside sunbathing, he loves to sit out on our decking and soak up those rays!

The image, coloured in Promarkers, is a digital one and I cannot remember where I got it from, I've had it ages!

Papers are Hot Diggity Dog (I do love those papers) and the flowers are from stash.

Tulip and Friend

Morning all, not too warm here today but at least the snow is starting to thaw.  Wasn't very good this morning, the roads and pavement were treacherous but the sun has been out which is starting to shift the snow.  Me and Roly are nicely snuggled up in Zippy Hamlets and are not venturing outside at all today!

Just one card for today:

Image and papers are from Tulip and Friends. 

I'm off to make a cuppa now and hopefully another play!

Hip Hop

Hello everyone, hope you are all warm and cosy and not had much snow!  We've had about 2 ins. and have just got back in from taking Roly for a walk with our friends Joy and Mike and their two gorgeous dogs, they had a fantastic time and Roly just loved rolling in the snow!  Joy tried to so a snow angel but the dogs jumped all over her!  Great fun!

Here is a card started last night and finished today.

Image and papers are Hot Diggity Dog and the card and gem (on dog's collar) are from stash.

Good afternoon one and all!  Hope you are all keeping well and warm!

Snowing quite heavily here and covering everything in site - brrrrrrr!

At Zippy Mansions we have had an eventful week, on Sunday morning I trotted, bleary eyed to the bathroom at 5.30 a.m. and heard a drip drip drip coming from the airing cupboard.  Upon inspection, the boiler was leaking and the bottom of the airing cupboard was like a swimming pool!  I shouted for himself to come down.  He put a bucket under the drip and back to bed we went.  At 8 a.m. I telephoned the Gas Board and a nice young man came out, stopped the drip and said we needed new parts which he would fit on Tuesday and luckily we still had heating!  Tuesday he came and after 4 1/2 hours of muttering he finally got the parts fitted and we are now firing on all cylinders! 

This is my entry for the LESS IS MORE AQUA CHALLENGE

The stamp used is Personal Impressions Fairy Silhouette.  Card and ribbon are from stash.  You can't see it too well, but I have put glitter coming from the fairy's mouth and on the toadstool.
