Not often he slows down and stays in one place,
but Grandma got some cuddle time for once.
And he is all better now.

Not A Christams Card

This is NOT a Christmas card.
But someone
(with a sense of humour)
 WILL get it as if it were.
You can blame 
for this card
They said, and I quote:
So this fortnight we're making cards for our 
friends who don't necessarily celebrate Christmas.

And I have friends who don't, but they certainly live in the 
Canadian Winder.
Surviving that is cause for celebration if you ask me!

Nuff Said,

Very Vintage

Who says Vintage has to be quite muted tones?
Not Electra, no sirree!

I have this sheet of  happy girls called
"Costume Crazy"

and it just begged to be made into a fat ATC to inspire you to enter the
Gecko Galz
   Very Vintage challenge

And since I added some stickers by Amy Tangerine and
some pinwheels fron Mikey's,
it also qualifies for this week's challenge over at
How cool is that?

The background papers are from Gecko Galz, too,
their "Strawberry Fields" Paper set.

Check out the
  Very Vintage challenge!

NOw if you will excuse me, I need to go
comb the feathers on my t-shirt.

Electra,  over and out.

and I see this herd of Bighorn Sheep
