Birthday Truffles

Hope your all ok after the nasty weather yesterday, we were decorating the front room ,doors open and the heavens opened,rain and wind giving it their all. Seen the news, devastation for some.
me I've made this card for my Mum in law, it's for my son Sam to give her,for her 70th Birthday. She loves chocolate, I would say apart from shopping at M&S a very lot , it's her only vice, unlike her daughter in law, ex smoker and wine and G&T lover not to mention stamp addict.

I'm totally adicted to house mouse and friends now, and now have 13 unmounted sets,all purchased this month, yes I know I'm terrible but I can't help it!!!!!
This is from a set called Bearytastic Day. I've coloured with pro and copic markers, it took awhile to get the grey's right on the bear,so the limbs are visable.
The sentiment (isn't it just fab) is from stampasaurus. The striped paper g.c.d studio and the polka dot, do craft peter rabbit collection. The happy birthday ribbon from crabapple crafts. I've printed an insert from the house mouse cd rom.

challenges entered :

crafts 4 eternity : bear necessities
craft your days away : teddy bears
J&C creations : animal antics
stamping for the weekend : show us your style ( cute ,girly with a bit of humour and usually a stamped image )

Just thought I'd show you how I grow my strawberries, bought this planter with plants from QVC about 4 years ago. I'f we are lucky and net against blackbird theft we can usually get a small bowlful for breakfast for about a month or so.

the decorating is finished ....yes...but I've got a banging headache from the gloss paint, I said " We are never decorating again " Bob said "good", ....if only it where true...

have a great day. janex

How very cute Jane.

It's been a good strawberry year here, despite the lack of sun and so much rain. I could eat strawberries for England, never tire of them.

Another gorgeous House Mouse image and a beautiful card. Love the sentiment - I'm sure it's true -at least I hope it is. Are you going for the whole collection then - you seem to be well on the way. Glad the decorating is finished - now you can sit back and enjoy - when the suite arrives that is.
