A Car and a Circle........

The DT on Bitten By The Bug were asked to use the car accessory from Paper Dolls this week. We were also asked to use lime green. Ooops. Forgot about that, so here is my offering. The car was cut at 3" and then paper pieced. I did the sentiment on the computer, the HI circles are from the Sugar Birdie CD. If you have the paper dolls cartridge, why not have a go. It doesn't even have to be lime green........................ :)


The challenge this week on Cute Daisy May is to use a circle on your card, I used the doily circle card from Wildcard as a base, the sentiment oval (which you can't really see) is from Craftwork Cards and the flowers are Prima. Why not have a go at the challenge, you don't need to use a Cute Daisy image, just make sure there is a circle on your card.
Time to bring the rat saga to a conclusion - Mike is home from sailing looking tanned and well, and was immediately despatched to find a pair of rubber gloves.....it was a squirrel, not a rat. I don't know why I find that so comforting, a dead rodent is a dead rodent, but it was spooking me to think of rats so close to the house, squirrels we know about, they gambol about the garden all day. The amazing thing is that I have not seen any squirrels for a few days, and as soon as their mother/father/brother/cousin was removed, back they came, not to sit reverently on the fence having a moment of silence in memory of their dear departed, but eating my plants as usual.
