Sunshine Card & Animals!

February 4, 2013 at 1:11 pm 4 comments

Good Monday morning!
Hope your weekend went well. Had a fun evening on Friday with Sharon, Sue & Emma. We tried some different stamping techniques & I’ll show you one of the cards we created later this week.

This is a card created really quickly thanks to my Silhouette Cameo. Love using up buttons. The cardstock is American Crafts Tropical- bright zingy colours prefect for brightening up your day.

The kids are busy cooking up various schemes. Quite literally.
No.2 has house bunnies. I may have mentioned them.
Very cute.
Not supposed to be inside.
We adopted them at the wrong time of year when they didn’t have winter coats.
They couldn’t be separated as they’re sisters. The only problem is that they need medical attention – to avoid hormonal fighting! Two girls in a confined space. I understand that dilemma exactly.
The next problem is that vets cost money.
Umm. A lot. Double spaying is pricey.
To encourage her independence we’ve suggested she raise the money.
She’s doing what she does.
She’s worked it all out. Costed every item. Even down nearly to each grain of sugar.
She’s quite a way to go.
The whole animal thing is rubbing off. Now the others are scheming. They’d like hamsters. The ticket to animal bliss is to be found by selling their Moshi monsters on eBay! I feel like our house will soon become overrun.
The entrepreneurial spirit may be going into override.
Selling cakes to your siblings without any discount is not so great. However lured by the prospect of sweet coated calories, the younger ones will cough up whatever’s the going rate.
Lets hope ‘family rates’ winkle their way in.
Did you ever save up for something? And should my kids have to pay full price understanding its for a good cause or should the prices be lowered for friends?
I can feel a headache coming on!

See you once I’ve escaped the potential menagerie! xx
