Cute Card Challenge

I was checking out Lou's blog and saw her entry into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, it inspired me to have a go also. I like the challenges as they make me create something I perhaps wouldn't normally think of.

The theme was "in the house" and defined as"anything in the house". I chose this little lady on her bed - I was going to say "this little lady and her rabbit" but as that could be hugely misinterpreted I removed the rabbit (not from the bed mind - oh dear, that hole I'm digging myself is getting mighty big!!). Now I've said that I'm looking at that card in a totally different way!!!! I wish I hadn't said anything now!!

I'll shut up and just post the card. Cosmo Cricket "Hello Sunshine" papers.

Thanks for looking :o)

.....and it's the weekend!

God it's been a tough week! The weather has been hot hot hot and working in that heat has been hard hard hard. What happens when the weekend finally arrives? Well not only does that wonderful Saturday turn up, but so does the clouds - and loads of them, and they have all that watery stuff in them! So instead of the sun warming you with its golden rays, I thought I would warm you up with a little joke.

Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven. When they get there, St. Peter says, 'We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!'

So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.

Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.. St. Peter chains them together and says, 'Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!'

The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps.She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, and one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on .... very tall, long eyelashes, muscular..

St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.The happy woman says, 'I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?' The guy says, 'I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck.

Ta ta for now ..... :o)
