Cars and Critters

 It's a cold Thursday here ... Yesterday we had warm sunshine (with showers) but today it is a lot colder (with showers) ...
I have a new little friend ... a cute squirrel ... who for the past 2 weeks has been  hurrying here and there collecting the falling nuts. He comes right up to my window about 10 times a day ... and stops to look in ... like he's saying hello - But every time I grab the camera ... he off like a bullet!
He's not the only one on the hunt for food ... the last few evenings the cat has been bringing home field mice ... It's quite funny really ... see my son like me cannot bear to see an animal hurt ... so he frees the mouse from the cat and then tries to catch it to make sure it is ok ... Guess you can't stop nature
..........
A few weeks ago my blog friend Jak contacted me and asked if I would make a birthday card for her Husband's upcoming 50th ... She said he liked vintage cars, bikes and radio's ... 
Jak was so kind to send me a whole heap of goodies for my Thursday group a few years ago so it was a pleasure to be able to do something in return for her kindness

This is what I came up with


It'd kinda difficult when you don't know a person ... but I know that Jak really like the card


All papers are from DCWV and though you probably can't see it ... the car is raised and glossy against the mat paper ...

Did you see the latest releases from PTI? I do love their goods but we have to pay huge import duty here in the UK ... so that with the postage means it is far too expensive for me to order stuff but I love to see the samples and I was particularly taken with Nicole's lovely bead bracelet ... It's been on my "to do" list for ages ... so I used my cameo to cut a few strips of paper and 'voila!' ... my bead bracelet



I am nowhere near as dexterous as Nicole (who makes everything look so simple) and though I did get to finish this to my satisfaction .. it was hard going with those fiddly little crimp beads ... BUT practice makes perfect ... and I intend to make some more of these ...

Finally can I just thank Steph and Lauren at Jingle Belles for featuring one of my Christmas cards this week ... I loved the postal prompt ... Thank you girls!

Have a beautiful day and thanks to you for stopping by
