Warm Winter Wishes - Sugar Nellie DT

Hello :o)  It's Friday at last... it feels like it's been such a long week!  And I'm getting a cold just in time for the weekend, how lovely...

Anyway... today is my day to post on the Sugar Nellie blog, and I've used a gorgeous stamp from last year's Christmas release.  This little penguin couple is called Warm Winter Wishes - aren't they sweet?

Yesterday my mum rang to tell me about a ginger kitten who needs a home... she sent me a photo too, and he/she (they're not sure) is adorable, and I want!!!  Hubby's not keen on the idea though, so I've not mentioned anything to the boys yet.  Not sure how I'm going to convince him, but I really need to!

Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

Unknown said...

Oh that is just the cutest image going! Love the papers as well.

Kitten, eh! Shame you didn't either live closer or want an all black - otherwise you could've had Worried!! As it is it looks like she's going to become a fixture at ours - no-one wants her, so she's stopping!! We'll have 4 again - a few too many for me, not enough for hubby!!! My poor toes are never going to recover.

Hope you have a good weekend and the cold doesn't get too bad.


Faye said...

Hi Lisa, I just love love your card it's just so cute, such a wonderful image, great colours and design papers and your embellishments are the most perfect finishing touch to a great card. Thanks for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

Kathie SSW-DT

P.S Don't worry about trying to convince your hubby just get the kitten and ask him if he thinks it's a cutie. 3 years ago I got 2 kittens as part of our son's Christmas treats. Hubby didn't want them and guess what he's the biggest softie of all of us and the one that is always talking to them and patting them, they just about get more attention than I do, I caught him drying one of them off the other night after it got wet outside that wasn't a problem but he was using one of my good handtowels LOL.

Christine L said...
