Old Style Perhaps?????

Morning chicskies – or maybe that should be duckies today!!!

Happy Pancake Day :)

The question is, which do you prefer ….

pancakes       pancakes-from-IHOP1

Well being a right little greedie, I personally would have both, snort snort cos I love em!!!! 

I have the tribe coming round later and we always have the syrup v lemon and sugar debate. Emma is a maple syrup girl, Richard prefers lemon and sugar and poor Nikkie is working so she will miss out (I’ll have hers lol!!)

But before all that face stuffing and smoky kitchen malarkey, it’s time to head on over to Papertake Weekly cos there is lots of lemon zinginess over there today.

It occurred to me when I looked at the finished card that this is pretty much my old style -  it’s a quite plain no frills clean looking dude!!

Which I kind of like really.

I could not resist this little cutie and he is  High Hopes Rainy Day Ducky. He isn't on the website as yet but he is available from Tracy over at Dies To Die For

The Copics I used and which IRL do look blended (what happened to the pic????) are -

Y00, Y02, Y03, Y08, Y15, Y17, YG00, YG01, YG23

OMG this paper is just the dogs whattsits!!!!

It’s the new Memory Box 8 x 11 which is available from  Dies To Die For.  I used Key Lime Gingham,, Distressed Dots and Dots and again they are not yet on the website but are available :)

I used a couple of BIG buttons and also some pretty little Wild Orchid Crafts self adhesive pearls

There’s dimension coming out of it’s ears!!!

So that’s me done for today me darlins xxx

Before I go,  I have to warn those of you who use C Box that this seems to be the latest thing that the good old spammers have decided to muck about with, bless em.

I keep getting somebody on there who leaves a comment with a link to some website or other – I haven't been and I aint going but it’s probably one of those where you can get yourself a bigger penis or something !!!  It may or may not be connected but somebody hacked into my hotmail account as well and sent weirdie emails to a lot of my contacts (I am so sorry xxx).

So be careful chicskies.

Righty I’ll leave you with a sneakie peek ……

It’s very VERY different for me!!

Have a great day, enjoy your pancakes. Eat loads, go on, it’s only once a year!!

Huggiest of hugs to all and see you tomoz with either indigestion or toothache (or both!!)  xxx
