splish splash smile...


Good morning everyone are you getting soggy yet or getting suntanned?...I wish the weather would hurry up and warm up as I'm rapidly becoming the weather police aren't I lol...oh before I forget all you people who know about animal rights, is it legal to put a dog in the boot of a car...I don't mean like a hatchback type boot I mean a sports car boot...we have a neighbour and he usually parks in his drive but for some reason he was parked across the street and yesterday evening I saw him come out of his house with a large lab puppy in his arms...of course I went aaaaaahhhhhhhh, but then he put the puppy in his boot and drove off before I could get out to stop him, surely that cant be right can it?...it seems cruel to me and if it isn't legal the next time I see him come out I can ring someone and he will hopefully get caught...even if it is legal it shouldn't be should it...well the weather police are reporting its grey, wet and very very dull here and doesn't look like changing any time soon, just thought I would report in case you were looking forward to my report this morning lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this fabulous little fella...go on have a guess who drew this sweetie...bet you can...yes of course its from Mo's Digital Pencil who else...I coloured him with distress inks and did a mega paper piecing job on him too...took ages but I ssssoooooo live cutting out don't you...hes called Sunshine...the gorgeous papers are from the  Kaisercraft - Elegance 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad and this and the wooden letters (out of stock atm though) are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished my card with some gorgeous little glass drops cut from a spray for my raindrops...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the One Stop Craft Challenge and the Papertake Weekly challenge too...I'm off out with my Dad today I'm fed up with sitting in for the last few days and feel in the need of a bit of a shop...don't know what for but I'm sure I will find something and of course time for 'put the world to rights' coffee too...whatever your up to today have fun

Mina your card is adorable with the paper piecing. I agree about the weather, but at least we didn't have any tornados. Stay dry.

Beautiful card!! Love the paperpiecing. Great job. About the dog I really don't know if it is allowed in Ireland. I think there is not much you can do about it... over here in Holland some people do it too and I think that's not the proper way to treat a dog.
Hope somebody else can help you.

Gorgeous card, love the paper piecing. Very sweet! Can't help on the puppy issue, I don't think it's ethical, but illegal? not sure.

Hi Mina, what a gorgeous image and I do so agree with you over the weather, its so cold still, are we ever going to get a summer, it just feels like winter all the time. I love the paper piecing. hugs Shirleyxxx

Hi Mina - its grey and cloudy here but currently dry! I'm sure that poor dog shouldn't be shut in a boot - surely there's a law against it? You do wonder don't you? Love your card - he's a very cheeky chappy and I love the raindrops gems - fabulous xx

Gorgeous paper piecing and such an appropriate card for the weather here today. I can't imagine that putting a pup in the trunk of a car could ever be legal, how horrid!
