Meet Jerry Springer...

our newest resident. Rescued from jaws of a cat, he has been given a new home in our back garden. He has the longest, springiest legs and he can really jump far, hence his name. We call him Jerry for short.

I tried to get a photo of those legs in action but he jumped towards me, I got a fright and ended up with a picture of this... nothing!

Birthday Season

It seems that everyone around me is celebrating a birthday. Today it is my elderly neighbor and this is what I got for her.

I've not done much today. I visited a friend for coffee this morning and ended up staying almost 4 hours.
This afternoon, despite having an ever growing laundry pile and a house that Flylady would NOT be proud of, I felt some creativity coming on so I made this card for my little niece who is turning 4. I'm really pleased with the way it came out. I used Elzybells teddy heart wreath stamp for the teddy (minus the wreath). The flowers and butterfly are foam.

And don't you just love the back? That Elzybells stamp is so cute!

I'm so excited...

I have blog followers!!! Up to now I have had only two followers - my husband and my sister in law. Today I logged in and discovered that I now have four!
So thank you blog followers for making my day and I hope that each and every visit will be an enjoyable one.
