Later Alligator…

Picture 049

Yesterday I got the bittersweet news that the  kittens from the foster litter were finally adopted (Martin and Chunky).  Took em’ long enough. I don’t think we have had foster furbabes for that long before. The even better news is they were not separated. Someone adopted them as a pair!

Last night my nieces came over and we played with my new toy. Oh yes die cuts galore from the slice. When they left, I offered them some of the die cuts…to which they let me know “happy birthday” I get to keep them. Ha! It is not even my birthday lil’ stinkers.

Then this morning we wished my mom farewell before she took off for a flight to Alabama to meet the newest grandbaby. I will hopefully be visiting her next week …depending on the interview and such.

With all kinds of other things to do, I chose to instead challenge myself to make a card with the alligator pair my niece cut. Yep, used only scraps and this alligator set. Oh and to make it more fun I joined in on the “Pile it on Challenge”. It is a challenge all about using both their challenge and at least one other online challenge. The theme this week is masculine. So the card needs to be for a boy or man. 

Here is the link if you want to join in the fun.

I also used this weeks sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketches #31.


Here is the link to follow along:


I had planned to give it a punny sentiment like “Wild about you”, but the printer refused to cooperate. Everyone is a critic. I have no patience for sassy printers so on to the white  unibal signo pen I went, but it also gave up. Having even less patience for sassy pens I tossed it in the trash and left the card speechless.

Oh and the title is not really to mean I am going anywhere, but with a possible trip to Alabama soon and the interview tomorrow, things might get a bit on the wild side and who knows…it might be prophetic.

And now…I best get some stuff set up for the interview. Later gator…
