Naughty Toby

Oh dear, Toby has discovered the art of catching birds he brought one home this morning and I managed to take it off him still alive so I put it in a box and put it on the top of the little greenhouse we have in the garden thinking Toby could not get up there BIG MISTAKE he got it again and brought it home squeaking so after a rather ugly tussle with Toby growling and scratching I managed to get the birdy back off him, the bird is now in the bathroom with the door shut so Toby cannot get him again and is chirping away, gave it some food and water so hopefully if it lives I can let it go later on.  Trouble is every time the bird chirps Bella barks lol.

I am sorry I did not catch up with you all yesterday as I wanted to but I am Secretary to the Cornwood Show and I had a lot of paperwork and show bookings to sort out and it took me all day, and then when Sarah came home we went shopping and I spent £170.00 on food which will probably only last two weeks.

I have another card to showcase today which is one of the commissioned cards this one is for a man who is nutty about trains, so obviously I had to use Mo Manning's The Engineer Digi Stamp which I coloured in when over at Rachel's on Saturday and then put the card together at home.  only 3 more commissioned cards to make and then I can start making my granddaughter Jessica' card she will be 18 on the 13th of this month, where does the time go.

Anyway enough with the waffle here is my card and I think my colouring is getting better as I have managed to get some shading in by following the original image on Mo's site.

I am just popping down the post box taking Bella with me and then I will come back and do some blog hopping and catch up with all your lovely creations.

Don't forget I have blog candy on offer Here

Love Alison xx

  7. Hi Alison, Toby's a naughty little boy isn't he lol, unfortunately he thinks he's being thoughtful by bringing you a gift and I know just how you feel my older fur baby Fudge would often bring home birds or the odd mouse...just how do you scold a kitty especially when they're being so thoughtful....Fabulous male card, I love the image and the layouts great too hun.

  9. Your card is fabulous Alison. I love that fun image and your colouring look brilliant.
    My cat is a real terror for catching birds, I get cross with him sometimes but it makes no difference. Sometimes he catches pigeons and we don't realise until it is far too late.
